Devil’s Dance may nod to the duel between good and evil, but it’s more useful to think of it as the stage design for that struggle. The atmospheres across the album are incredibly immersive and involving. Take the title track. Its marching-band drums, brought to life by intricately deployed delays and reverbs, walk us past gunshots, screams and a siren. But something about the scene doesn’t feel entirely earthly—the sounds are oddly distant, and eventually make way for a menacing drone. Once we’re led into “Slow Dance,” the feeling is of detachment, of not being quite here or there.
