Delusive Relics – The Blind Owl Album Review

Today we are featuring another promising ambient/industrial duo, DELUSIVE RELICS, from New Hampshire, US. We have reviewed their new release, THE BLIND OWL, along with its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Delusive Relics is a promising Electro-Industrial duo I discovered a week ago with their new album, The Blind Owl, released on February 21th, 2021. For those who haven’t heard about the band before, Delusive Relics has started their careers with a long-play album called; Chaotic Notions in 2019. Since then, the band released one more long-play album, The Blind Owl (2021), and two singles, Painting From Dead Body (2020) and Shade of Owl (2021). Now, please give the album a listen while reading the rest of the article.

Delusive Relics indeed is an extraordinary band with their origins, powerful ethnic backgrounds, unusual musical blend, and influences in their music. I listened to The Blind Owl album a few times on repeat to have a clear vision before writing my article. We all know that there are albums that took some time to get used to it, and only after that, they became timeless. We still listen to them with the same excitement after many years. Strangely, this is what The Blind Owl reminded me.

First of all, the album has tons of creative elements, powerful vibes, excitement, sadness, happiness, and Unorthodox compositions. I have to give them that. I was quite blown away by the number of creative elements they used and flawlessly blended into each other. I am not that much into this music style, yet I am very impressed by their visions. The album, in general, wasn’t dark enough that I unconsciously wanted it to be, yet it is a dark and moody album. Melodies aren’t anything close to what we usually hear from popular culture; it is rather jazzier, combining Eastern and Western vibes in a very delicious way. You won’t hear this if you don’t listen to it with full attention. I am reviewing music for more than five years now, and this is one of the most characteristic blends I have heard for some time! Hands down!

I know that the album is based on a book with the same title, The Blind Owl, written by Sadeq Hedayat, the famous Iranian writer, about 100 years ago. What they have thought of doing and eventually did is truly admirable. We don’t see these things happening very often these days, to be honest. All these I have mentioned are their strengths, especially what makes The Blind Owl so unique. I have huge respect for what they have done, and they deserve all the compliments for their understanding of music.

Technically, The Blind Owl has average standards. The album spoke to me very genuinely while listening to it, and I have to admit that it missed the chance to become a timeless masterpiece because of its insufficient production and mixing. I am truly sorry for being brutally honest, yet that is a fact. The vocals miss the mark, not enough character in the vocal blend (especially when they sing together), so many times songs couldn’t make the expected impact because of the raw sounding instruments, poor balancing, etc. I can go on all day long. I am not sure who their producer was, yet I can say that the album sounds way below this band’s musical standards.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I have had a great time listening to Delusive Relics. Huge potential, tons of creativity, progressive elements, strong musical character. Briefly, a great album despite all the technical difficulties. Delusive Relics still are at the beginning of their careers, and I feel like I will definitely hear of them again in the future!
