Guitarist and composer Myles Yang's passion for innovation, coupled with
his extensive academic study of arranging and compositional techniques,
makes NATIVE CONSTRUCT a truly distinctive up-and-coming metal
act. Yang, along with bassist Max Harchik, and vocalist Robert Edens
completed work on their debut album "Quiet World" in
between 2011 and 2013. By 2014, the band's music caught the ear of Brian
Slagel at Metal Blade Records, and led to a recording contract and a
worldwide release of the band's debut album.
"Quiet World" was largely self-produced and written
between 2011 and 2013 in between the individual band members' studies at
the Berklee College of Music. What began as jam sessions simply for fun
eventually turned into a full-fledged musical endeavor. All tracking
and programming was done at the band's home studios in Boston, MA, with
the exception of vocals, which were recorded with Jamie King at The
Basement Studios in Winston-Salem, NC. The album was mixed by Rich
Mouser at The Mouse House Studio in Los Angeles, CA, and mastered by
Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, The Contortionist).
A brief listen to "Quiet World" is enough to make it
apparent that there is a concept, here. Though it's best to let the band
explain the album in their own words: "Quiet World" is about a guy
who loves a girl. The guy is a bit of an odd and eccentric person - an
outcast. He's also a mute, and a little unstable, as it turns out. The
girl doesn't return his feelings, but he can't bring himself to let go.
As his unrequited passion for her devolves into obsession and eventual
resentment, his mind begins to slip further and further away. He
convinces himself that he can't be loved because of his condition and
abnormalities. So he decides to create for himself a new, fantastic
world of which he has complete control - a world where there are no
oddballs or outcasts. A world where everyone is surrounded by people who
are just like themselves: a much quieter world."
What is impressive about NATIVE CONSTRUCT is not necessarily an
involved concept on a debut record, it's that they wrote, produced, and
recorded the album while balancing schoolwork and on a college student
budget. It's the epitome of "self produced." And what NATIVE CONSTRUCT wants fans to know is that "the
composition process for this album was intensely meticulous from top to
bottom. Each note, each lyric, each twist and each turn were arrived at
with the utmost care. As such, we were able to weave rich, often subtle
layers of meaning into the music and text. We're very excited for you
all to experience the result of our efforts!"
