Animals As Leaders - Animals As Leaders

at martes, noviembre 24, 2009

2008. USA
Progressive Metal/Math Metal/Instrumental

Animals As Leaders is a project commanded by guitar virtuoso Tosin Abasi in an act that goes far beyond Instrumental Progressive Metal as we know it.

The album is a compound of songs that not only archieve to be one of the most impressive technical performances I've heard, but at the same time unlike many other extreme technical acts very audible with an outstandig understandment of composition.

Tosin Abasi draws in this album from not only Prog and Math Metal but melts it in the pot with Jazz, Fusion, the so called 'Djent' and shreds the F**** out of it.

8 string guitars, crazy outstanding riffing, ridiculously changing time signatures, stupidly insane sweep picking, and even sweet acoustic arrangements on top of it is what we find in this fantastic limitless album... and yeah, with 'a little bit' more elegance than Michael Angelo Batio.
