On an Upswing
Brian didn’t give 3s across the board this week! So, one of these bands did something right. Well, two did, because our Bands Across America pick is pretty awesome…
Beyond Creation – Algorythm (Season of Mist)
Racetraitor – 2042 (Good Fight)
Mycelia – Apex (Eclipse)
The Algorythm is my favorite album by Beyond Creation. I really think it strikes a great balance between the heavy, the technical, the progressive, and the atmosphere. I also definitely did notice the Gojira influence on it. The opening of the title track struck me as a very Gojira-esque riff.
Along with Beyond Creation, there is still some more highly anticipated tech death this year, with Gorod and Psycroptic.
