5.0 out of 5 stars An exceptional, but almost unheard of band, 28 July 2003
This review is from: Terraforming (Audio CD)
The Postman Syndrome are one of the most impressive bands you are ever likely to hear. It is almost impossible to categorise their sound, as it seems to constantly change and evolve through the album. It generally varies between avante garde jazzcore, vicious hardcore, progressive metal and melodic, even verging on emo, rock.
Rather than following a simple verse-chorus-verse structure, the music is always unpredictable with occasional bursts of heaviness coming out of the calm before returning once again, irregular time signatures and songs so vibrant it's almost as if they're alive.
Although there aren't choruses, as such, there is a lot of fantastic melody, and even the heavier moments will end up lodged in your head for ages after listening, leaving you craving for more.
This is all brought about through the band's excellent musicianship. The vocals are expressive and emotional, often resembling those of Maynard James Keenan, but with occasional hardcore screaming. The three guitarists do a similarly great job, constantly changing in style. The rhythm section is also unbelievable, as it changes from standard rock beat to erratic metalcore or even tribal, depending on the song.
No matter what type of rock or metal you favour, there will definitely be something for you here. The band's level of invention, musicianship and sense of melody is almost unsurpassed. This is what music should sound like.
