NotesAngel Marcloid's music under the name Fire-Toolz presents a consciousness striving for radical self-expression. Rainbow Bridge, the third Fire-Toolz album on Hausu Mountain, continues Marcloid's exploration of ever more high-definition production techniques and rapidly shifting compositional architectures in order to give life to one of her most personal and pointedly emotional thematic programs to date. If passages of prog synth intricacy, scream-soaked deathcore, and free-form textural sculpture might seem to be signifiers that land far from each other on a vast 3D plane, Fire-Toolz weaves them into some coherent language that carries its own sinuous pace and unlikely logic. Against fantasy-like visions of mutating electronic production, weighted thick with ballistic drum programming and ornate keyboard harmonies, Fire-Toolz maintains a consistent vocal palette of high-pitched, distorted shrieks. The synth tone scientist, the prog drummer, the noise collage miscreant, the soaring guitar solo shredder ' instead of all of these personas 'becoming one,' Rainbow Bridge places them in a state of constant flux and recombination, of one becoming many at any given moment.
