I’ve found something that could be the next big thing.
What I like about this album most, is the serene tranquility that creates a false sense of hope before creating a wave of what I could only describe as a mournful bliss.
It is heartwrenching, empathy inducing, and uplifting as fuck,
veritable prog-metal all-star team weaves spellbinding soundscapes throughout
Face Of Opprobrium is a challenging album that asks a lot of the listener. Accepting the challenge is not in vain though, as the payoff is exceptional.
First comes the head bobbing. Then the aggression. Followed by falling in love with it.
…the album is darkly upbeat. There is plenty of energy with a plethora of twists and turns to keep it interesting.
There aren’t enough hours in the day to give everything a full album listen, so something has to grab me to keep me switching to the next, and it is certainly rare for power metal to do that for me. That alone is recommendation, as Age of Revolution has had double digits full album listens.
atmospheric and esoteric, seemingly floating through a series of complex metal riffs, dissonant jazz chords, and subtle lead-guitar melodies laid atop a straightforward-yet-effective rhythmic foundation.
catchy chorus riffs and perfect vocal styles
