Hmmm…not sure what to say about this one. It is a little on the different side.
This is another band that I discovered by reading a debate on the Prog Power Forum where a discussion was taking place about Agalloch trash talking the new Dream Theater release (Maybe I should do that one next..haha).
Anyway…I picked up a copy kind of expecting to hear a Progy DT-style band with cookie monster vocals.
The only thing I got right was the cookie monster vocals.
This band is really more about atmosphere than riffs and in some regards reminds me way more of Opeth than Dream Theater.
I can not really say anything bad about the disc, but it is not something that I would spend a lot of my time jamming out too. I have no problem seeing how many folks could easily get into this, however.
If you are an Opeth fan or just want to listen to something a little different than you should give this disc a shot. If you are looking for thrashy, heavy, progy goodness, however… might want to skip it.
I kept two tracks on my player:
Fire Above, Ice Below
