The heaviest metal in the universe,
This review is from: From Mars To Sirius (Audio CD)
I first saw these boys when they were touring supporting Annihilator and Trvium. The were so heavy they scared me. I had to leave the room.
The consequence of this was that for many months ahead I was intrigued every time I saw this album in the CD rack in the shop, but I was still way too chicken scared to get the thing.
Finally my fear subsided over the months ahead and I finally took the plunge and bought the album.
Am I glad I did or what?!!
This is a masterfull piece of modern progressive metal. Think of death metal meets Mastodon. It's heavy beyond heavyness. Very cleanly produced, with some awesome guitar work.
The all pervading message about man's continuing destruction of the very thing that gives him life is a nice touch for a metal band. Don't be worried about this comment though. If you didn't know the background and listened to the album you'll just take it for what you hear - sledgehammer heavy modern metal.
Awesome music. I'm glad I overcame my fear.
