As has often been stated, not least in the previous review, Farmakon sound like Opeth. However, since Opeth are possibly the finest band on the planet right now, this is certainly no bad thing. The world would be a much better place if bands all wanted to sound like the Swedish masters rather than racing to copy Linkin Park or Limp Bizkit to earn themselves a bit of cash. But I digress. If you imagine Opeth with a bit of 70s funk incorporated into their sound (only occasionally, but it is there) you won't be a million miles away from their sound. Marko Eskola's very Mikael Akerfeldt-esque rasp is great, but in all fairness, his clean singing isn't a patch on the original, though what is in truth? The songs don't have the same intricacy or complexity, not to mention length as their Swedish counterparts (no 20 minute 'Black Rose Immortal' equivalent here) but they're still more involved than most songs by most other bands today. If you like the idea of Opeth but are put off a bit by the length and complexity of their songs, Farmakon are a good introduction to the whole genre of Prog-inspired Metal. With songs on the album as fine as the riff-driven opener 'Loosely Of Amoebas' (great title!) and 'Flavoured Numerology' where Marko mixes up his normal vocal style with a singing voice that is very reminiscent of a very angry Mike Patton, it seems likely that the young Finns have a bright future, though it may take them a while until they can call themselves kings of the particular scene they've chosen.

I bought this album after a reviewer compared them to bands such as Opeth and Ephel Duath (two of my favourite bands). When i first listened to it i found that while these comparisons are fair enough (especially Opeth, the vocals and acoustic passages are strikingly similar), there is so much more here.
Thrashy, almost old school riffing reminiscent of Opeth mainman Mike Akerfeldt's "other" band Bloodbath, interesting experimental passages similar to Pattons later stuff, and in songs like "Loosely of Amoebas" and "Pearl of my Suffering" you have some of the most well structured and catchy extreme (make no mistake, this IS extreme) metal songs youll ever hear.
Some people may be put off buy the almost uncanny similarity of the vocalist to Mike Akerfeldt, but if youre going to sound like anyone on the extreme metal circuit, why not sound like the master?
All in all, essential listening, and one of the best metal albums i've heard this year
