Today we have another debut Lp, this time from Defying. Defying is a four member band from Olsztyn, Poland. Their first full length Lp is called Nexus Artificial.
Their sound is a combination of post metal. death metal and progressive metal. Well, when people think of death metal plus progressive metal they tend to think of bands like Cynic or Atheist, but that is not the case here. I mean we ‘re talking about a progressive band but not so technical as Atheist for example. We have ten tracks on Nexus Artificial. Nice intro which is ”Demiourgos”. In greek it means ”creator”. All songs are really heavy. I like the way they combine the post parts with the progressive parts. Cool death metal vocals also, combined with clean vocals. I think they have managed to mix their influences harmonically. And this resulted to this nice atmospheric (in my opinion) album. Favorite tracks are ”Prayers” and ”Imitation”.
To sum up with, this is a very good release that is highly recommended. Links:
