Causa Sui "Vibraciones Doradas"
Afbeelding

Country: Denmark
Genre(s): Instrumental Psychedelic, Stoner
Label: El Paraiso Records
Format: CD, digital, vinyl
Release date: November 17, 2017

Tracklist:
1. The Drop (7:12)
2. El Fuego (11:24)

5. Vibraciones Doradas (9:05)

Total Time 37:12

Line-up:
Jakob Skøtt - drums
Jonas Munk - guitar
Rasmus Rasmussen - keyboards
Jess Kahr - bass

Description/Reviews:
... Causa Sui continue to work on their own level when it comes to style, able to shift between the feet-on-the-ground drumming that gives opener “The Drop” its churning beginning and the spacious guitar and keys of “El Fuego” that seem to float that 11-minute second song and side A finisher toward its graceful midsection build. Some of the progressive sensibilities of arrangement cast into Return to Sky have been dialed back — not all, but some — and the resulting live feel even in synth-laden centerpiece drone interlude “Viborera” as it long-fades into the straight-ahead desert riff at the outset of “Seven Hills” ahead of the nine-minute nodder-closer title-cut is flowing and gorgeous in kind.

Ashley Eddy - Speech (4)

Description/Reviews:
Mindflowers are a mostly instrumental prog fusion band whose music is infused with a hint of hardened metal. Their overall style has some similarity to bands such as Liquid Tension Experiment and Tribal Tech. The album has many changing colours and distinct moods which are displayed in ever-changing tempos, crunchy rhythms and searing guitar parts. There is a good balance between all-out aggression and carefully-crafted, melodic reflection. Nevertheless, the abiding and most prominent musical style on offer is gutsy fusion that has elements of prog and metal included. In this respect, there are occasions when the style of bands such as Dream Theater are brought to mind.

Line-up:
Jason Kresge - keys, lead vocals
Matt Ullestad - guitars
Tony Renda - bass, vocals
Mark DeGregory - drums, vocals

Description/Reviews:
This is a keyboard driven blend of old school prog and AOR. Repeated listens to the album remind of bands that emphasize the more melodic aspects of prog but don't overlook the more technical side either. Bands like Saga and Styx come to mind immediately as well as Glass Hammer and perhaps another NJ band Shadow Circus. The 22 minute epic title piece sees the band stretching out quite a bit and some ELP elements surface to punch you in the gut.

Description/Reviews:
Outliers by Norwegian band Glutton is not easy to categorize. Their music is, to my ears at least, definitively retro sounding. There are loads of vintage instruments and multi layered singing. Style wise, there is some old time Psych, Folk, Prog and some Post, pretty much all mixed together.

Now with well-earned respect from both the extreme metal underground and Zorn-associated avant garde jazz scene, Cleric more than makes good on their promise. Listen to them rewrite the book on what the combination of the terms "metal" and "avant garde" can (and should) mean. With "Retrocausal" this tireless Philadeliphia-based unit has burst forth with a true masterpiece in the field of extreme experimental music.

Description/Reviews:
The Beyond is a darkly progressive voyage through strange paranormal worlds. The album begins with some very technical and dissonant sounding songs. Each track builds on the journey as the songs evolve through the course of the album. The album strikes a balance between melody and oddity and contains some innovative ideas, even for a progressive metal album. The Beyond is characterized by extended range guitar, bass, and synths paired with monstrous drumming in a heavy progressive context. Dustin uses an E-Bow (Electronic Bow) to solo on a couple tracks for a unique harmonic guitar sound. The Beyond is inspired by early 90's progressive death metal such as Spheres era Pestilence combined with a modern metal influence from Meshuggah. Chris Poland's Return to Metalopolis was also an influence. The album is heavy, progressive, dissonant, and showcases some very fast guitar playing.
The album is inspired by Dustin's love of classic horror movies, especially European horror of the 70's and 80's. The album artwork, skillfully painted by Mark Cooper, represents figures from a series of nightmares Dustin had as a child (of which Mark was unaware when he painted the piece).

Description/Reviews:
...on all media the band speak of their combining different musical styles into one. And that is not a lie. Opening with growling vocals over the album's storming intro, power metal riffs, clean male vocals, operatic female vocals - and that's before the 2 minute mark.
These guys and gals bring in elements from all over the musical world, based on modern prog metal, with lots of breaks and changes, obviously.

Description/Reviews:
It is a rock opera inspired by the book "The Little Prince" by Antoine De Saint-Exupéry. The songs follow the narrative thread of the novel, intertwined with the life of the French writer, being told with the musical influences and texts by the story of the album’s author. Everything becomes a symbol and metaphor to describe the same journey with different points of view. Musically, inspiration by Peter Gabriel’s “Ovo” or Marillion’s”Brave” can be found, combined with references to the tradition of the most iconic rock operas such as Jesus Christ Superstar.
