Progressive Extreme Metal Masters With Another Masterpiece,
This review is from: Vertebrae (Audio CD)
This is without a doubt one of Enslaved's finest achievements to date. A shining example of modern extreme metal, progressive wizardry and psychedelia of new found depth. The band have gone through many different incarnations with each album they have ever released and that is a fundemental carachteristic of this band. "Vertebrae" is again very new sounding. Vast in its thickness, texture and scope. Every Enslaved fan should own this record.
It is also certainly one that requires more than one listen to fully appreciate. On repeated listenes you find the extra layers not present to you as a first time listener. Little inflections of chords that augment other chords, huge deep groovy passages and drumwork again of a class of its own. I would advise anyone even remotely interested to pick yourselves up a copy as soon as humanly possible...
