"There's something out there larger than ourselves, revealed in a way much bigger than we will ever know."
These words ring true to the two visionary creators of element66 on their debut self-titled album.
Absorbed in to the ever growing prison system of America, Chad Hamlin and Kenneth Fisher have found redemption with their recording project that they call element66. Determined to create a brighter future Kenny and Chad won't let their lives become stagnant by standing still in the dark trenches of the prison system. The sad reality is that prisons in America are overflowing with talented people that have no outlet to create
and be artistic. The power of creativity is an emotional expression that can help heal the psychological damage that comes from being locked away from friends and family. Recording and releasing music is a way to reach out and share a piece of the experience.
"We discover that we can reshape reality, just by believing, just by willing it real."
Finding inspiration and optimism in a maximum-security prison is not what comes to mind for most, but somehow it bleeds through to the surface of each one of these emotionally stirring songs.
Mud stands strong as a potent anthem to the struggles of drug addiction; you can feel the turmoil that Kenny conjures in his haunting lyrical content.
The troubling heart felt psychological wounds can be deeply felt resonating from songs like Abandon, No One Else To Blame, Incantation, and Endless.
DEGOBAH! On the other hand explodes with tight groovy guitar riffs that mingle so smoothly with the upbeat electronic rhythms and catchy vocals, you'll be left feeling it's inspirational message of hope swimming deep into the subconscious mind. May the Force be with you.
The guttural growling bass tone belching forth from Chad's six string bass guitar gives Redesign the heaviest and by far the darkest vibe of any song on the album.
To find a classical piece of music like Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight of The Bumblebee comfortably embedded in the center of this album proves that element66 has no creative boundaries. This futuristic electronic instrumental titled Flight of the Bumblebee... The Adventures of the Great Bumble Beaver is a tribute to one of the greatest musical compositions of all time. This vision of tomorrow is expressed through the eyes of yesterday.
Seeding the Universe with Humanity, one thought at a time.
