The Involution Philosophy

Rated 3.18/5 (63.53%) (17 Votes)

This band is very into proggy Thrash like Anacrusis or Atheist - you can tell because they let you hear the bass a lot, and only prog Thrash bands do that. This is an ambitious project that has two big strikes against it. Strike one is vocalist Bruno Masulli, who is not exactly bad, he just adds nothing to this at all. His mostly tuneless nattering is something you have to learn to ignore. Strike two is that for a Thrash band, this outfit sure forgot to actually thrash. In places they will let fly with a killer riff or two, but mostly this band is too interested in being progressive to pay attention to their songwriting. Most of this is saddled with awkward, stumbling arrangements and meandering instrumental wanking. These songs are slow, stodgy, and sound about as far from Thrash as you can really get. Tedious but mostly inoffensive.
