    That drumming was so monotonous until the end, where it was a little creative with that blast.

    I can't say I like it. I think the guitar players were trying to hard to be tech death and they lost sight of just making good music. Sounds awkward and forced to me, and the drums are just blah. The vocalist was good though.

    kliked the bassist and vocals, most of the guitars were pretty cool, but i can't say the drummer really blew me away

    Kind of soulless. Just lots of fret dancing without a reason behind it.

    Oh another one of these bands. These guys can continue to try and out-tech each other for eternity and I'm still not going to be interested. Part of making good music is knowing how to write a good tune and knowing when to edit yourself and show some restraint. In the death metal genre a band like Obscura comes to mind. Christain is a beast on the guitar but he can also write a good song and not let technique get in the way.

    And why is this genre called tech-death anyway? Why is it technical? Sure it may be hard to play, but typically there is nothing complicated or very interesting going on harmonically or melodically (although that's obviously not always the case).

    This kind of came to mind also :lol: I see a lot of bands brandishing the banner of technical death metal when they're really just playing fast.

    Plus I doubt many bands can some close to the "tech death" bar that was set by Necrophagist/Obscura/Beyond Creation. Not that it matters, but people try to and it ends up just sounding bad because they were actively trying to be technical, as opposed to having song ideas in your head that happen to be super technical.

    When part of a bands USP is is how many strings they have on their instruments, I automatically go in as a cynic. In this instance, I was proved right, little of musical interest beyond the technical "wow" factor. I love good tech death like Necrophagist, Gorod etc, but for god's sake, don't lose sight of the songs. Making music people want to listen to, rather than just watch videos of on youtube, should be the goal.
