Artist/ Band Link (click for details/ ordering)
Their debut on Unicorn Digital, So... This Is Earth is chock full of heavy complex yet melodic music full of rhythm and slice of technical in the compositions. At some points I often hear a similarity to Tool, mostly in the way the vocals are presented. The songs that you hear this the most are Why, Nothings Changed and the 17-minute epic,“Xeno’s Paradox," which showcases the band’s ability to do many time-signature switches, while retaining a melodic and ethereal feel. At the end of the disc, it leaves you wanting more. This band in my opinion goes way metal, in fact they embrace the true meaning of the word progressive to create some of the best music I’ve heard ever.
