Leading Vision

Rated 4/5 (80%) (12 Votes)

Not many times can someone listen to an album and say they honestly cannot find anything wrong with it. Leading Vision is one of those albums for me; no matter what I think of, I can say that there is not one single second of this album that does not make me want to listen to it over and over again. One other draw to this band is that even though it is Technical Death Metal, they are not just making the songs to "show off" their skills, obviously they are showing off but they have made the songs so fucking catchy I cannot do anything but praise this album.

I have been listening to this album for a couple years now, so I know it like I know my family. I know what is going to happen and when it is going to happen. But with the first couple of listens, the stop-start riffing and the quick changes that are happening to the music may be unusual. That is one thing that managed to keep me listening the first time. With such an ability to make a song, make it catchy, heavy, and technical it makes these guys very good musicians. The solos both blend in and stand out, weird huh? Yes, they do come out of nowhere, go along with the music and are one of the shining points of the album. The vocals remind me of Frank Mullen, but this vocalist is a little more varied in his delivery.

I often find myself playing air guitar, air drums, and doing the vocals at just random times of the day. When an album has embedded itself into my mind like this, it is almost second nature. It is really hard to explain why I love this album so fucking much unless you listen to it, so do so now. I never thought I could give out a perfect score, but this album surely deserves whatever praise it gets.
