I helped with the funding of this album (as did many other people who contributed, but it's a cool thing to say) and when I spent that money close to 2 years ago, I really had no idea that what I was helping to make would be as good as this. It's really really super duper cool. It's jazzy but not in an obvious fusion way, that's where the post-rock influences come in (what a silly title for a genre... ). It's very dark and mysterious and it's never just noise and lots of jazz shred. It's a coherent piece of work, with each track falling into place nicely during the course of the album with nothing being a challenge to listen to as can sometimes happen with fusion. Of course the music itself is difficult but it's enjoyable, it doesn't hurt your ears. Yes it shows that the band consists of 2 ex Cynic members yet the compositions are highly original and unique. If you like difficult yet listenable music that's seemingly played effortlessly with hints of "post-rock" (again.. what does it even mean?) jazz and progressive metal, then look no further.

A must-have for fans of the intersection of jazz and metal! 21 Nov 2013
By Devin Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Like many others, I was exposed to Exivious after two members of the band, Tymon (guitar) and Robin (bass), spent some time with the legendary progressive metal band Cynic.

It's hard not to draw some comparisons between Cynic and Exivious as there has always been a clear influence from the former on the latter (and the bands share a lot of general sensibilities), but the folks in Exivious do an excellent job of stamping a signature style on this album. The drumming is tasteful yet complex, and the guitar work is inviting and melodic. Furthermore, the bass playing is as good a reason as any to pick up this album, as it's groovy, fretless excellence that I hope encourages more metal bands to employ fretless bass in their sound. It adds such a rich timbre that is so well-suited to the genre. It's a shame that it's not used more often.

If you like Chimp Spanner, Animals as Leaders, or other instrumental metal, you would make a terrible mistake to ignore this album or the rest of Exivious's work. The soloing on this album doesn't tend towards the kind of sheer technicality that you might find on any given Animals as Leaders track, but that's more a reflection of Exivious's priorities than their abilities.

If you're already on this page reading this review, I can't imagine a reason you wouldn't be happy with this album.
Intense instrumental jazz / rock tech metal fusion 17 July 2014
By David VE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Liminal" is the second full-length CD by Dutch progressive/fusion metal group Exivious. Their self-titled 2009 debut was successful enough to allow Exivious to produce Liminal through crowdfunding in 2013. The four musicans (two guitars, bass and drums) all come from metal backgrounds, but Exivious is really a instrumental jazz rock fusion band with tech metal elements filtered in. The tracks are generally intense, featuring both fusion metal sections with energetic jazz scale guitar solos, but also occasional calm sections.
Instrumentally Entrancing 10 Feb 2014

I've loved instrumental efforts lately. This band I found at random based on a recommendation through the Amazon mp3 engine, and I'm glad I'm pulled the trigger on this album. Really good all the way through, I find myself humming the melodies for hours after listening.

Not complex, but Simple: Boring and tired. 7 Dec 2014
By J. D. Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wow, this is one of the most boring, pointless noodling sessions I've heard in a while. The pseudo (weak) metal riffing sounds like it's really there just in an attempt to trick some people into thinking it's somehow different or better than strait up jazz - nope. I would have greatly preferred honest jazz. Yes, that can be boring too, but at least it doesn't sound like jazz pressed together with really lazy, sleepy metal. I mean the riffs seem to be expressing disinterest and resignation at nearly every turn. The rhythm sounds are paper-thin and apologetic. Like I said, if it were some radio jazz, you'd not expect a metal edge, and therefore, you'd not be so disillusioned.

I did give this a high rating, the highest I really could. I just wish this album wasn't so weak, so we could finally have something a little different (and worth hearing) in this long metal winter we are experiencing.

As it goes, I've heard far better jazz than this, but that, when left alone, is still Liminal's strongest point.
