Imagine Spiral Architect firing their singer and writing a sophomore album, you’d get approximately what Continuo Renacer offers us on The Great Escape.
I got that album in the mail last week and it has since been on repeat. The album is filled with awesome jazzy-fuziony chops and riffs while remaining melodically accessible and not once boring or uninteresting.
Seriously guys, you should all get a copy of this amazing album! So GO HERE!
Like Continuo Renacer on facebook because they truly deserve it.
Are you familiar with their debut? In my opinion the great escape is a weak follow up that apes their debut but brings very little that is new in. A lot of the riffs, and drum patterns sound near identical to ones on their first album. This was such a disappointment for me.
I sure listened a while back to Tap that Angel and Fusion for Suckers (those are the only ones I can remember), but I don’t have any knowledge of a previous physical CD they were selling or offering for download. But I agree with you on the drums, even throughout the new album, they feel redundant :/ … anyways, an amazing band with brilliant musicians!
