Review: Abstract Deviation – The Day I Would Never Have EP

I was quite content with Abstract Deviation‘s last album, Layers. Even with all its flaws, it was a fun listen and it was something just a bit out of the norm: djent with progressive, electronica elements, and female-fronted. This time is now gone.

First major change: the singer. No more female voice. I’ll admit that she wasn’t the best singer out there, but it was something uncommon among djent bands. The new [male] singer, despite his good voice, doesn’t bring out that “uncommon” element, and makes the band sound much more familiar than it should be. Familiar like … Read more

Abstract Deviation – Layers

From Mother Russia, Abstract Deviation are making a lot of noise in the modern progressive a.k.a. djent scene. Mathy polyrhythms, changing time signatures, insane musicianship and female vocals are what distinguishes them when you first listen to them.

If you want some new djent madness without all the mean and harsh vocals that are used in today’s bands, you might want to get into that band. If you’re a fan of said mean and harsh vocals, go and get their instrumental version of the album and make your own growls/screams/farts.

Abstract Deviation is sure to become … Read more

Russian Shepard is Metal!

This is happening, folks!

Saint-Petersburg-based band Starbreeze releases today their symphonic space metal album named N7. If you haven’t guessed it yet, this is a conceptual album based off of Bioware’s Mass Effect universe and games saga. You don’t believe me? Look at that trailer!

It is a good mix of heavy metal with hints of progressive elements and loaded with symphony.If you like good metal, Mass Effect, or both, head over to their bandcamp page to pre-order the album for 0.50$ (while it’s still time!), and show them some support on facebook too!

The Korea – Saturnus EP

IS OUT!

Saturnus begins where Chariots of the Gods left us: with plenty of heavy and melodies throughout, and that’s a good thing!

The sad little thing is that it’s only an EP, with 3 songs. Well, technically there are 6 songs in total, but it’s only the Russian and English versions of the same songs, so you get to decide in which language you want to listen to The Korea.

So for 3 bucks you get to mosh on Russian or English, that’s fair!

Download Saturnus now you fools!
