Rated 4.25/5 (85%) (4 Votes)

Theory in Practice is probably the most talented band that most metal fans have never heard. Hailing from the hotbed of today's metal scene of Sweden this is their 3rd full- length release and second for Listenable Records. After the critically acclaimed "The Armageddon Theories" it seems they are on the edge of gaining worldwide recognition in the metal community.

The music is a mix of progressive metal and melodic death metal with more than a passing influence from thrash as well. Add all this together with some of the most complex song structures you can imagine and you have some serious talent here. The amount of time changes in each song is staggering to hear but is not simply the amount that is so impressive; it is how it is integrated into the song so as not overshadow the music with its own technicality. The musicianship is just off the chart and after hearing it you just have to sit back and wonder how the hell they would be able to pull this off live.

Overall another excellent album from one of the best bands out there that for the most part metal fans have yet to find. Fans of bands like Cynic, Atheist or Meshuggah will simply drool over this album and should really make the effort to get this album. Highly Recommended.
