Format: Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for fans of the intersection of jazz and metal! 21 Nov. 2013
By Devin Wilson - Published on

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.
5.0 out of 5 stars Intense instrumental jazz / rock tech metal fusion 17 July 2014
By David VE - Published on
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.

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.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great album. I'm not good at reviews 3 April 2015

Great album. I'm not good at reviews. I would suggest this album if you liked their first. I would say this one has definitely improved. Drums killed. Guitar killed. Fretless bass killed. I'm dead.
