This review is from: Autotheism (MP3 Download)
I bought this album because The Faceless (who I had never heard of before) were mentioned in an article about Extol, a band who have produced some excellent technical extreme metal with great musicality. After 2 or 3 listens of "Autotheism" it really started to make its impact. This is a great album, with really beautiful music woven amongst energy and power with lots of variety. In places it recreates some of the great slow guitar solos of days gone by, but in perfect context. The overall sound is modern but borrows from some of the classic sounds of the past. If you 'get' what technical / extreme metal is all about (i.e not just a wall of noise) you will find what you are looking for here, in abundance. Give it a few listens on headphones and you will love this.
