Poly-Math – The Cadaver Tomb, Part 1

As a rather striking departure from their usual sound, British post-prog quartet Poly-Math has decided to try a different approach by going the way of alternative rock, especially the kind that’s now a bit outdated—dark, with some reliance on electronic music elements, almost gothic or industrial in tone, you know the kind—but still very much appreciated when done right, and they’ve struck a massive success with this album unduly cut in half; for the record, I have to say that I haven’t had the chance to hear the second part of The Cadaver Read more
