"Electrogenesis" is the follow-up to 2014's "Re-Animate" album.
"Electrogenesis" is adrenalin soaked metal mastery crossed with symphonic elements and at times with brutal thrash/metalcore tones. This is by far Keith's most heaviest & ambitious set of songs to date. Yet again the collaboration between Keith, Dyl and Tom has proved to be an awesome success. Between the three of them they have managed to create something generic and yet unique all at the same time. 7-stringed guitars can be heard blending together with the symphonic tendencies that Keith has tampered with in the past. To be frank, this is by far the most fulfilled any listener of Keith's music could ever be. The level for Keith's music has risen once again.

'Re-Animate' will see Keith work along side another musician for the first time since his old band split up in 2006. Wakefield musician Dyl McPrice aka 'McDylbot' is helping Keith to reach his target of re-recording older songs and gaining better production quality of his music. 'Re-Animate' will showcase Eleven tracks and contain at least two tracks from each of Keith's past albums. The idea of 'Re-Animate' came about when Keith finished recording his latest album 'Hybrid Clockwork.' The sound quality on that album was more polished and far superior compared to his older material and the positive feedback he got from his fans was what put the idea into his head of going back over some of his past songs to try and give them a better over-all sound.
The pressure of doing everything on his own and giving everything towards his music took it's toll on Keith and this is when McDylbot stepped up and offered to help out. Dyl's production knowledge has had amazing results so far regarding Keith's music and this has had a massive effect on Keith's enthusiasm.
What should Keith's fans expect from 'Re-Animate?'
In a nutshell you can expect to hear brand new versions of some of Keith's best songs. What do we mean by new versions I hear you ask?
Well.. Newly recorded vocals, newly recorded musical parts, better over-all sound quality and a much better musical production. 'Re-Animate' is going to open up a can of worms, and when it kicks in, it's going to kick your ass!
Daniel Harrison 'CEO of Pool and Spa' in Las Vegas, USA has submitted a review for my latest album Re-Animate. (This is probably the best review I've ever had)
"Creating any sort of fresh buzz for a compilation album is often a difficult task for any band or artist, no matter how great the music was when it was first released. Re-mastering original tracks has now become more popular to try to breathe life into older songs. Sometimes it works, sometimes it leaves you wishing that the artist would have just left well enough alone. So, as a long time follower of Keith Davies' music, I was somewhat skeptical when I heard that his new album Re-Animate would mostly be composed of songs from his previous masterpiece albums Symbolic Hemispheres, Seeds And Leeches, Dark Matter and Hybrid Clockwork. However I soon found out that there was an awful lot more work here than just the copy/pasting of old tracks into a new order! In fact, Re-Animate may just might be his finest album yet!
Turns out that Keith hooked up with producer Dylan McPrice (a/k/a McDylbot) in mid 2014, and together, they actually re-recorded the best of Keith's older hits. And I mean re-recorded. Like Keith re-singing his vocal tracks with a hot, new, crisp and fresh sound, as well as re-playing many of the guitar tracks and totally punching up the drums and bass as well. With the help of Dylan, they have taken the best of the best from Keith's hit tracks and taken them all to the next level. Thus creating a totally updated sound that raises Re-Animate to a whole new level of hard hitting vocals, catchy in-your-face guitar riffs, and infectious chorus's.
The "new" version of Seeds And Leeches, possibly the best track on the album, is like Sid Vicious meets Slayer meets Rush. The chorus is one of the rare pieces of music that gets into your head and stays with you - and leaves you wanting to hear it again and again. White Conduit is very cool and melodic, with Keith also invoking a Geddy Lee style that makes the track great. The Disconnecting Signal is also a great piece, and keeps the album moving along. Terra Nova has extremely hot guitar riffs and a totally catchy chorus. Originally appearing on Symbolic Hemispheres, the new mixing and recording of the new 2014 version puts it in the "should be a hit song" category. The mellow and melodic NewClear has a great arena-anthem quality to it. Also would put this track into the "should be a hit song" category as well.
Stabbing Daggers starts off with a dream-like slow intro, until it comes up and hits you in the balls with quite possibly the single best guitar riff on the album. You will find heavy metal at its' best in this track for sure. Massacre Of The Mind, originally from Hybrid Clockwork is also laced with great recording and mastering, punchy guitar riffs and again, just a perfect sprinkling of Rush-like qualities.
Stolen (Welcome To Paradise) is a slower, more melodic tune from Symbolic Hemispheres. Keith's emotional vocal performance on this track truly gives you a window into his abilities as a musician and singer, who can handle the hardest of metal, as well as the intensity and emotions of his own insightful lyrics. Toxic Coma from Dark Matter has a great mellow beginning, but quickly turns into a hard hitting tune. Keith's vocals are very strong and moving in this one, and the bass riff is hard to beat as well. Seismic Horizons, also from Dark Matter, has a crisp new feel to it, very well produced, and exploring a lot of new sounds.
The Field Where She Lays has an exceptionally great guitar sound and Keith's trademark vocals. A bit of a more mellow track, The Field has wonderful introspective lyrics and spot-on recording quality. It has a classic sound, complete with violins and a masterful ethereal quality to it, The Field has that "epic sound" that makes it shine. The bonus track Stigma, with music written by Dylan and lyrics by Keith is also a great mellow track, with first rate vocals and superior recording qualities.
The artwork contained with the CD package is amazing itself. Keith has always taken great pride in the entire production of each of his albums, including the CD art, which is often a lost element in much of the music of today. The CD comes with art from each of his previous albums, plus an insert with the all words to each song (which is a nice touch). Looking at the whole package, and hearing the music as a complete piece of work, it is almost unbelievable that Keith has actually done most of this on his own.
From concept to lyrics, to art design, Re-Animate does not disappoint at any level. Plus with the help of Dylan, Keith's music has been "Re-Animated" into a whole new, professional level. The fact that this guy is not signed with a major label at this point is quite unbelievable. After this new compilation CD, I am sure he will be soon."
