All Your Friends Are Gone
A distorted voice, static and subtle,
Crescendos steadily, erecting a unique ambience.
Masked, the voice repeatedly chants,
â€œAll your friends are gone.â€
It unexpectedly slows, with increasing atmospheric quality,
Which ushers in a drastic change.
Suddenly, snare accents and a constant bass drum
Bring about a new course of direction.
Intense, high-pitched strings vibrate with sliding fingers,
As an underlying jingle remains inconspicuous.
The resonation of various clashing cymbals
Marks a transition, and a divine, green*
Voice integrates all instruments together calmly.
A distinct opening and closing of the hi-hat,
Paired with a smooth, powerful bass create
A memorable backdrop. A haunting guitar amplified
By delay effects strengthens the singing voice,
Which says, â€œPlayback, delete and rewind.â€
As the last word is sung, it blends as a layer
With more singing, and the existing mood deepens.
This new, conveyed feeling is maintained briefly,
And soon the sound of crash cymbals
And toms follow the green voice as
It carries the song into the chorus.
With a quicker pace and fresh energy,
The drummer goes bananas, striking each individual
Instrument of his set many times throughout the movement.
The lead guitarist shreds cleanly unlike
Any other, while the beautiful voice
Augments, coming to a near scream at
The end of the movement. This intense
Energy is nearly released, as all the instruments
Return to the former mood with clashing cymbals.
The pureness and skill of the music
Soon overwhelm the listeners in a
Beautiful way, and the audience swoons.
