Blue Stahli: The Devil Chapter 2 review

Mixing metal and electronics can be hard to do well. If done right it can be one of the most beautiful things you’ll find but if done wrong it can be worse than nails on a chalkboard. Many achieve the beautiful but more artists put out musical mash-ups that would make William Hung sound like a good musician.

Blue Stahli is the latest artist to combine the two genres to perfection and his newest offering- The Devil Chapter 2 is one you’d be robbing yourself if you didn’t check out.

Following up Chapter One, this one opens up with instrumental intro “The Beginning,” which has a hauntingly dramatic tone to it and gives you the feeling you’re walking through a post-apocalyptic wasteland, marching into battle…or both. It’s a great way to kick off this chapter.

This leads into “Ready Aim Fire,” which has a feel similar to “The Fall” from Chapter One but keeps it fresh and original at the same time. It’s clear Stahli is here and back with a vengeance, ready to take what’s his and make his mark. This one would fit well at a metal festival or a rave- something that’s hard to accomplish.

Rounding off the original studio recordings we’ve got “The Enemy,” which has an steady tempo beginning and shows Stahli’s voice as another instrument and includes a breakdown and build-up that will get your blood pumping and make you listen to it on repeat.

The Devil Chapter Two finishes up with two remixes of each song that you absolutely must give a listen to. I’ve never been a big fan of remixes but these give such a new element to the songs that you can’t help but enjoy them and become addicted.

What it comes down to is that Blue Stahli’s momentum is growing more and more with each chapter and installment of The Devil. If you don’t check out either of these two chapters and give Stahli a chance, you’re missing out on one of the best musical experiences you’ll ever have.
