Biography

Pendulum was a -influenced group from Perth, Australia, who relocated to the UK in 2003. The group (2002) comprises Rob Swire (vocals/synth/producer), Gareth McGrillen (bass guitar/producer/DJ), Perry ap Gwynedd (guitar), Paul ‘El Hornet’ Harding (DJ), KJ Sawka (drums) and Ben ‘The Verse’ Mount (MC). Despite breaking up in 2012, El Hornet and MC Verse continue to perform DJ sets using the aliase.

In 2005 they released their debut album, Hold Your Colour. Critically, the album was well-received in both the United Kingdom and Australia. In addition, it was one of the biggest selling Drum and Bass releases of all time. Pendulum have also collaborated with Freestylers, releasing the single “Fasten Your Seatbelt”. MC $pyda and DJ Tenor Fly also feature as vocalists on “Tarantula”.

Pendulum’s sound is typically heavy beats accompanied by low, buzzing bass lines, overlaid with synthesized leads. As of their second album, In Silico, further experiments with sound are evident with many more elements from rock and typical electronic music being incorporated into their music. “In Silico” is Pendulum’s first album for Warner Bros. Records via the bands Ear Storm imprint.

Their track “Vault” was played by almost every DJ and was declared by annual Knowledge Drum’n’bass Awards as The Best Track of the Year. They have also created many remixes, including a remix of Voodoo People by The Prodigy.

    @Pam-param-pam если ты касательно таких, как Donny или Current Value, то это не менее знакомая и годная тема. Однако повторяюсь, в "Hold Your Colour" заложена изюминка. Сопливый вокал, как ты сказал ранее, есть неплохим дополнением. По поводу переоцененного статуса: жанр был довольно популярен, да и сейчас в каком-то смысле не сдает обороты. Аудитория могла самостоятельно выбрать "любимчика", может даже под действием толпы. Таких сейчас много, необязательно Pendulum.

    по мне это переоцененный обычный "драмчик" с сопливым вокалом. Для ознакомления советую сборники Ram records или Barcode records

    @Pam-param-pam проблемс? Имхо, было даже лучше, если бы они на этом остановились. Последующие альбомы - это какая-то вода, смешанная с роЦком, пусть и есть пара достойных тем.

    Поддерживаю оратора ниже. Повторить что-то в духе "Hold Your Color" было бы действительно неплохо. Легендарнейшая работа среди индустрии drum and bass и электронной музыки в целом.
