STANDING OVATION “The Antikythera Mechanism”

STANDING OVATION
“The Antikythera Mechanism”
(Inverse)
OK, here’s another with a band name that you could ridicule if the album is anything but good. But as I said earlier, there is nothing wrong with being confident. As long as you can back it all up with some really great metal I’m the first to applaud. With an album title like that I for one got my hopes up that this is going to be a really great slab of metal. It did start out promising. But I’m not sure how to react to this. What’s so annoying is that I know what this reminds me of but I can’t put my finger on it. I thought that it might come close to D.B.C’s album “Universe” but that turned out wrong. This is really more along the lines of early Genesis or prog rock of that era dressed in a more contemporary metal clothing. Not really my cup but I can listen to it and enjoy it if I’m in that mood. There’s no denying that this is a bunch of very competent musicians. Anders Ekdahl
