A truly fantastic album by Prog Metal connoisseurs, Opposing Motion! From start to finish, the music is packed heavy, thundering riffs and drumming, yet beautifully layered with eloquent melody; everything you could possibly ask for! Go on and download it!

Opposing Motion - "Laws Of Motion"
Lion Music (2013)

Intertwining UK and French musicians prominent in the session scene, progressive metal act Opposing Motion released a debut EP in 2010 entitled "The Illustration", and spent the better part of 2012 working on the material that comprises this debut album "Laws of Motion". The quartet feels comfortable mixing up elements of traditional metal, progressive rock and influences from conventional artists like Dream Theater and Threshold - delivering an intriguing 8 track record.

What this means for the listener is you'll often get quick hitting time signature manipulation maneuvers that propel the next passage of the song in diverse directions. Check out "Rites of Passage"- keyboards straight from the Styx pomp rock heydays sit next to nifty cymbal to snare/ bass drum hits that would make Neil Peart proud- while the follow up "Echoes of the Soul" just bursts with this heavy Morse Code-like guitar/bass attack right out of the gate before transforming into a lighter, atmospheric passage more in line with Yes. Vocalist Ludovic Desa has a multi-octave range that has no struggle hitting those falsetto highs, very much in line with classic Geoff Tate.

The closing 9:52 "The Fallen Opera" (divided into three acts subtitled `Lust', `Neglect', and `Remorse') gives the quartet of musicians the best chance to flex their instrumental muscles, incorporating a series of neo-classical arpeggio-laced guitar breaks, fluid drumming from Kevin Deplanche and a number of atmospheric shifts that are necessary to fully justify the epic ebb and flow of this particular arrangement.

Opposing Motion appears to have a good grasp of injecting the right amount of hooks amidst their progressive volleys. Worth investigating if you want something a little more metallic than pure technical overload.

Opposing Motion represent everything I've come to expect from the Lion Music label .e.g progressive metal that's well played and written. "Laws Of Motion" ticks all the boxes and isn't a million miles away in approach from label mates Seventh Wonder yet the band have enough of their own hallmarks to keep them sounding original.

Melody is high on the Opposing Motion list of traits with a strong leaning towards memorable melodic vocal motifs from Ludovic Desa, yet these tend to remain at the more aggressive end of the spectrum. The Deplanche brothers (David and Kevin) form a rock solid rhythm backdrop for guitarist Joe McGurk to lay down strong riffs and lead work over. This is definitely intelligent metal and you get the impression is all comes sickeningly easily for the band such is the confidence displayed in the material.

After several spins "Forever's Edge" is the pick of the bunch song wise, yet the closing epic title track runs a close second.

Areas of improvement? The production is quite wet with a lot of reverb, something which does take away a little power and see some intricacies get lost in the mix but otherwise its all strong stuff and another good find by Lion Music.
