3.0 goodEasterInTheBatcave | June 10th 16

Praxis' debut effort, Transmutation (Mutatis Mutandis), is one of the greatest experimental albums of all-time. Here, the material is even more varietous. Opening with a fantastic acoustic ballad featuring something that sounds like a recorder ("Wake the Dead"), it quickly goes into the effect-laden heavy metal outing "Skull Crack (We Are Not Sick Men)" (featuring voice samples from Bruce Lee's 'The Chinese Connection'), and then into the Buckethead classic "Meta-Matic". From then, the album gets very avant-garde (the ambient "Cathedral Space (Soft Hail of Electrons)" and the chilling "Double Vision" are two examples that come to mind). "Turbine" features a heavy metal riff that was made for headbanging, and "Warcraft (Bruce Lee's Black Hour of Chaos)" contains some insanely fast shredding, courtesy of Buckethead. There is also a light sprinkling of funk with "Cannibal (Heart Shape of the Iron Blade)", though it's more dark and experimental than the funk featured on Transmutation.

★★ I formerly had a soundoff for this album, but Sputnik doesn't let you delete soundoffs, so I
replaced the soundoff with this. Check out my new account, EasterInTheBatcave, for all of my
soundoffs and reviews, including the one for this album. ★★
