There's also songs like The Seducer which are firmly rooted in hardcore/mathcore and not afraid to show those roots. The strong but a bit off the wall guitar work drives everything home. There's even a piano interlude towards the end of the song that just ties it together. Same thing with the song High Pitched Noise which is brutally heavy at points and fast paced throughout.
Basically in terms of sound the album is extremely varied. There's songs like Supercell, which features a female vocalist and ambient electronic work in the beginning, that I could see played on an alt rock radio station. There's more progressive tracks like the aforementioned Sky Moves Faster that while they have their foot in hardcore, aren't willing to just be your typical or run of the mill songs. There's a lot of experimentation on this album and it mostly pays off. For listeners it means that there's really something for everyone on this album.
Septa have been around technically since 2006 and that decade of music making and talent really shows on Sounds Like Murder. The album overal is dark and haunting, heavy and progressive, and oozing with talent. It's nice to see a band that definitely falls in the realm of hardcore willing to experiment a bit. They aren't really afraid of the alt rock label that has been bestowed upon them and it works. Septa have crafted a varied and wonderful album that's just full of little moments that will keep you coming back for more.
