Rated 2/5 (40%) (1 Vote)

Release is the second full-length from Czech progressive metal upstarts Object. Their style is generally plagiaristic of Nevermore, particularly concerning the last few releases from said act. Adding to the Nevermore style are shades of Textures, a few modern thrash metal nuances and some very slight Devin Townsend vibes.

The music and ideas across Release vary in quality, although I'd say some of it was fairly well done. What I feel hurts Object is their vocal approach which is pedestrian to say the least, a lot of the vocal lines and melodies wouldn't feel too out of place on a nu-metal record, which is a shame. The production isn't too bad for a relatively unknown act, although the mix does feel a slight fuzzy and would have certainly benefitted from being a little clearer considering the style. On the whole I feel Release will appeal to fans of popular modern metal. Fans of Nevermore might well find some joy, although the vocals killed it for me. Proceed with caution.
