Pendulum – Immersion
‘Immersion’ is the third studio album by Australian band Pendulum. Released in May of 2010, ‘Immersion’ saw worldwide success and peaked at number one on the UK Albums Chart in its first week of release. The album features a variety of sounds. Although drum and bass is highly featured, electro, house and metal styles are also within the 67-minute long album.
Having started life as drum ’n’ bass DJs, Pendulum increasingly incorporated live instruments in their shows and recordings, and with 2008’s ‘In Silico’ they delivered an album that was a beat-driven, riff-laden rush of adrenaline from start to finish. ‘Immersion’ sees the band further building upon these foundations, and it is arguably their most accomplished release to date, pulsating with electronic intensity while boasting an impressive variety of tones and styles, genuinely blurring the lines between genres. The album features collaborations with renowned musicians Liam Howlett, Steven Wilson and the Swedish melodic death metal band In Flames.
