Cynic - Focus

Musical ideas spawned from the inner depths of a dimethyltryptamine experience, cynic puts a unique twist on conventional death metal with additions of jazz interludes, ambient keys, and vocoded vocals. This is a reissue which contains 3 remixes and is definitely an album that you will find yourself returning to time after time.

Behold... the Arctopus - Skullgrid

Similar to Orthrelm, in fact they have done a split together. The logic behind the composition, if not seasoned in math metal, may utterly baffle you, but is still 100x more logical than orthrelm...wait thats not the word...the word im looking for is...conventional. BTA makes beautiful use of the "Warr Guitar" a 12 string guitar used primarily for tapping that covers both bass and guitar octaves. If you are sick of all the trend cookie cutter metal, sick of growling and screaming and just want to listen to some amazing and eclectic musicianship this is an album for you.
