Forte Ruin is a Finnish band that sent me their second EP, Rebuilding the Machinery, under the heading of "melodic death metal" but in reality, they play progressive metal with death and clean vocals. The songs are entertaining without being spectacular and I have to say I prefer the death singing over the clean. There's enough complexity to the songwriting to give it that progressive flavor but Forte Ruin never get so intricate that a casual fan will get lost. There's a good balance between the keys and guitars and the sound is smooth and clean. I think of a mix between Sonata Arctica and Anubis Gate when listening to Rebuilding the Machinery so if that piques your interest, check out Forte Ruin.
