Countless Skies are an interesting UK band who are blending a lot of sounds into their music. The riffing is very much influenced by the open, overdriven sounds of post-metal and more atmospheric Black Metal, while the vocals are a mix of a dry, melodeath rasp and a clean style that is more high-pitched and urgent. The leads and melodies are very reminiscent of prog, as are the sometimes complicated drum patterns. This is not a million miles removed from later-period Enslaved, though much more cleaned-up and almost glossy in places. The production is solid, and the playing is competent. There's a lot of ambition at work here, but a lot of it actually pays off.
