There’s music for speakers, and then there’s music for headphones. While one propels you forward with sheer energy, the other embraces you with intimate moments.
codeia’s as he turned back towards the eye of the storm manages both the powerful and quieter moments and wrangles them into a full-body experience for its audience.

In comparison to their first record “don't be afraid”, she whispered and disappeared, the new one as he turned back towards the eye of the storm feels more focused and determined than its predecessor. The band therefore likens their previous album to a prologue: “Our debut has introduced our characters, or influences. Now, the storyline unfolds and allows for a more complex character development.”

Spherical sound patterns, hypnotic repetitions, and progressive structures set the stage for facet-like lyrics. Some things, however, shouldn’t change – the band once more has made it their mission to capture a live-feel on the album, making sure to record all guitar loops live. A vinyl-only bonus track of 22 minutes as well as two contributions by N (Denovali Records, Midira Records) lend additional richness to the production.

Ultimately, the seamless transition between the two records gives an entirely new meaning to both, urging the listener to re-evaluate the known and unknown.

Es gibt Musik, die man besser über Lautsprecher hört und Musik, die sich eher für Kopfhörer eignet. Wo die eine mithilfe schierer Energie nach vorne treibt, überrascht die andere mit intimen Momenten. as he turned back towards the eye of the storm von codeia führt kraftvolle und stille Momente zusammen und vereint beide zu einer Ganzkörpererfahrung.

Im Vergleich zu „don't be afraid”, she whispered and disappeared, dem Debüt der Gruppe, klingt as he turned back towards the eye of the storm fokussierter und entschlossener. Die Band vergleicht ihr vorheriges Album daher mit einem Prolog: „Unser Debüt hat unsere Charaktere, unsere Einflüsse vorgestellt. Nun vertieft sich die Storyline und erlaubt einen komplexeren Einblick in die Figuren.“

Sphärische Klangmuster, hypnotische Wiederholungen und progressive Strukturen bilden die Grundlage für die facettenreichen Texte. Anderes wiederum ändert sich besser nicht — so schreiben sich codeia erneut das Bühnengefühl auf die Fahnen und spielen alle Gitarren-Loops live ein. Ein Vinyl-only Bonus Track von 22 Minuten Länge wie auch zwei Gastauftritte von N (Denovali Records, Midira Records) reichern die Produktion zusätzlich an.

Letztlich schenkt der lückenlose Übergang zwischen den Platten beiden Alben eine völlig neue Bedeutung und drängt den Hörer, Gelerntes und Unbekanntes zu hinterfragen.
