What is Old is New, What is New is Old…

First things first…
CORRECTION: In the Tesseract review we note that Scala was only mixed in stereo.  This is incorrect; it is mixed in 5.1 surround. After recording, we realized that the equipment we were using was not set up properly. Also, the 5.1 sounds awesome.
Moving on…
While out mix of bands we cover is usually pretty interesting (read: varied), I noticed something else interesting this time in said variation.  The first reviewed band is newer, pushing a newer sound.  The next is rocking out with a sound older than them.  The third came originally started in a now-transformed scene, came back together after a split and mixed their original sound with a little influence from the new generation. The last decided to rehash an old scene from their homeland.  So…how much new music are we really getting? Just chew on that for a sec…
