Right after the release of their debut album Erosion , Cydemind was approached to write music for Navyblue and the Spectrum Killer, a platform game produced by Hyper Combo Studio. This project is the band's first take in this sphere of the musical industry, in which they aspire to be part of.
Cydemind wrote the music for all the levels of the game, adapting its style to enhance the design and story behind each of them. Inspired by the project, the band offered the studio to go one step further and fully produce an extended version of Navyblue's main theme and one of its levels : Intercom Tower. Those two pieces show very contrasting styles and gave to the band the opportunity to explore new sounds such as layered synthetisers and exotic percussions.

Widek seamlessly combines the pretty melodies and atmospherics of post-rock with the heavy rhythm guitars of prog-metal. On this album he tends to lean more towards the former than the latter. Wonders, Nandaya, and There & Beyond are the standouts. I recommend this to fans of God Is An Astronaut especially. Ryan Johanson
