— Album of the Week —

Toothgrinder: Phantom Amour

61kBsdTMrJL._SS500

Genre: Modern Prog // Label: Spinefarm

Background:

This is going to shock longtime fans. Toothgrinder started out as one of those modern prog bands specializing in chaos, noise, and aggression with occasional moments of clean singing and melody. On Phantom Amour the chaos and noise has been replaced by lush atmosphere, and most the aggression has been replaced by the clean singing and melody. The most similar sonic shift that comes to mind is the change between Gabriel and Transhuman — in fact, this and Transhuman have a lot in common. Throughout its runtime, Phantom Amour delivers a moody, melodic blend of modern prog, alternative rock, and even a little psychedelia. Check out Phantom Amour‘s title track below.

A few good releases this week:

Toothgrinder was a good surprise, The Dark Element features the ex-Nightwish vocalist and sounds like a cross between Nightwish and Delain, and Entheos is some cool original tech death,
