Technical death metal is possibly my most favorite genre of music this day. The musicians can prove that they can break boundaries and fuse the extremities of death metal with the talent of jazz and classical music. The Faceless proves that this genre of music still has its high potential and can be executed well.
The percussion is excellent. The guitars are very technical and create a whole new dimension. The solos definitely draw out a neo-classical feel. There’s definite classical infleunce. Vocal range is excellent. Every track is flawless, especially the mostly instrumental “Akeldama”.
There is no moment to miss out here. If you enjoy the works of Atheist, Beneath The Massacre, Necrophagist, Cynic, and Theory In Practice, you need to pick this up!
