Tool is not releasing albums (neither is A Perfect Circle), Opeth has just released a turd, Katatonia is solid but not discovering any new grounds, rather eating its own tail. Soen and Leprous are the masters right now, creating the most magnificent music.
Вторым альбомом только подтвердили свой высочайший уровень. Если Мйнард и КО будут и дальше тянуть с новым альбомом, эти ребята их, того и гляди, сместят их с Железного Трона меланхоличного прог-метала.
first spin of Tellurian was a disappointment, I missed the catchy tool-esque feel Cognitive had. now I'm quite certain, the new album is a step forward. Tellurian is showcasing Soen having come to a sound of their own, also the songwriting feels more smooth and organic. especially the three longest tracks Pluton, Void and The Other's Fall are absolutely gorgeous!
