Australia Week-ly Riff – i built the sky “Perlucidus”

As we discussed earlier today, Australia is a gnarly fucking place. But unlike some gnarly places in the world, like Russia, the magical land of Oz tends to turn out some incredibly mild-mannered people. It seems that the constant looming threat of a painful death from the myriad of nightmare creatures outside merely creates a blanket of calm that allows for very friendly attitudes and can-do spirit.

I’m being dramatic, of course, I hear that Australia is a lovely place, and as for mild-mannered, one-man instrumental djent phenom i built the sky mastermind Ro is no exception. As devastating as his tracks are, he is cool and soft-spoken as he explains how to play his song “Perlucidus” off of his EP Intortus from last year.

This guy came prepared – you can download his Axe-FX patches, tab for this and other songs, and freakin’ backing tracks right here. So you have no excuses now – get to work!

Here’s the full song:

All of i built the sky’s epic tracks are available for name your own price on his Bandcamp page.

Watch out later this week as we cover more i built the sky and more Aussie artists on Australia Week!

I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
