Genre-bending at this point has become somewhat of a beaten stereotype, if you ask any experimental/avant-garde aficionados, that is. While the efforts put into the release aren't anything new, Suspended Animation Dreams is certainly an impressively herculean album to get into for those who are curious about Subterranean Masquerade's primary genre. From the death growls to the more softer portions, not much is misplaced here, thankfully.

If you think you've heard genre-redefining music, you might have to reconsider. The product of members of Novembers Doom and Agalloch, Subterranean Masquerade is an extremely unique and experimental progressive metal band. "Suspended Animation Dreams," Subterranean Masquerade's first full length release, typifies the band's style: employing death growls, spoken doom vocals, and clean singing layered over any instrument imaginable, from acoustic guitar to clarinet to harmonica to violin to trumpet. The fact that the album is unorthodox doesn't inherently make it a success, however. What impresses me is the seamless transitions between, seemingly, completely unrelated sections. Well done, guys.
