Reverse music, otherwise known as “backmasking”, is nothing new in the industry. Albeit widely debated, reversing a record is as old as the invention of the phonograph itself (1800s). Pioneers of this technique include The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and The Eagles.
RainCrowd, however, might easily be the first to release half of what seems to be a full-length album on reverse.
There is also the debate of whether or not reversing music and its misunderstood language is good or bad for the listener. Or whether secret messages may be embedded into the audio for whatever purpose.
RainCrowd indicates, on the interview, that it is a “big deal” having a themed project, as they have not done this yet.
