| ||Spires (MAN-UK) The Whisperer|
Spires manage to break out of their Opeth cover group phase with a resoundingly intricate album, only barely marred by some jarring transitions. A hefty listen, but one that progressive metal fans will surely appreciate.
| ||Fates Warning Theories of Flight||4.0|
| ||Astronoid Air||4.0|
| ||Vale of Pnath II||4.0|
| ||Masta Ace The Falling Season|
Masta Ace deserves better instrumentation. He's absolutely legendary by this stage in his career, but these cheap loops just don't provide a sound enough foundation for his story-heavy lyrics.
| ||Pusha T King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude||3.5|
| ||Mephistopheles Sounds Of The End|
Sounds of the End is a challenging, yet rewarding listen. While comparisons will always exist between Mephistopheles and Psycroptic in regard to both Chalky, who sang for the latter before leaving, and the sheer technicality that elevates both, this manages to escape the tech death comfort zone almost completely through innovative guitar work that shifts between varying ideas and genres, sometimes within individual songs. It's production can lend itself a little TOO well to the Willowtip roster, but even still, this is an easy recommendation.
|Dmax28 Hey man, I am the biggest Omnium Gatherum fanboy. I think the last three albums starting with Redshift are classics. I can't argue with your assessment of the new album though. I can enjoy it, but it's their weakest since Stuck on Snakes Way. It's a shame they went for such predictable songwriting and simpler arrangements for the most part this time around. I think some of the songs are still classic Omnium Gatherum, but the last track is what really bummed me out.|
|Hurricanslash Hey man, I know I was pretty quiet the last month, had a rough time. HOWEVER, I think I have found an instrumental on which we two could make a song on. Do you have Skype or an email-adress where we could talk more easily?|
|Hurricanslash That's awesome! You can listen to my latest stuff here: http://www.audiomack.com/album/ccmunster/nothingness ^^|
|Hurricanslash Cool, looking forward to that! Also, just wondering, would you be down for a feature? You maybe know that I rap as well.^^|
