The new music train continues on this Tuesday evening with the latest track to be released from the upcoming record V by Scale the Summit, and this one has me thinking Starcraft.
Seem like a weird mental association to make to you? Well the laid-back, guitar-driven instrumental vibe of "Kestral" starts out with some lead lines and chord progressions that remind me a whole bunch of the jazzy Terran music. And while this one does eventually get around to slaying pretty solidly -- the last couple of minutes feature some excellently shreddy goodness -- those first couple of sections remind me pretty hard of the supply depot-laying calm before the storm of a Starcraft match. "Kestral" sounds like it might be a highlight of V, but fingers cross that everything's this good.
