VICINITY “Recurrence”


Battle Helm Rating

Norway hasn’t been on my map lately. But in the recent weeks I’ve almost been bombarded with great new Norwegian releases. The metal scene in Norway isn’t as dead as I thought it was. I have been a progressive fan since the first time I heard Pallas back in the 80s and with Dream Theater entering the scene everything changed. I cannot say that I am that well versed in music theory but I do know if I like what I hear and that is all that matters. To my ears this isn’t as intricate as Dream Theater can get at times. Sure, the twiddlydwiddly bits are there but it isn’t as heavy as I thought it would be. It is more a smooth journey. And that is not a bad thing at all. Anders Ekdahl
