THE BINARY CODE MEDITATE, DARKLY
In June I saw The Binary Code for the first time since December I think. And me not seeing The Binary Code, one of my absolute favorite bands from this region, for that amount of time is, well, highly unsual.
So when they started playing all this shit I’d never heard before, I was like, “Whoa!” They’ve been demoing new material quite a bit, apparently, and are planning to release their sophomore full-length at the start of next year.
That’s still a little ways off, though, so the band has posted one of their new demos, “Dark Meditations,” on their Facebook page. It doesn’t have any vocals yet, and I have no idea if they’re planning to add vocals to this particular track or not, but one way or the other, it sounds really great — it’s very much in the vein of “Ocean of Light,” the epic instrumental track which opened the band’s Priest EP last year (thus, my speculation that the track might remain vocal-free).
In any case, I can’t wait to hear more — this is a band that should always pique your interest. Check out the “Dark Meditations” demo here, and start getting excited about new Binary Code in 2012…
