Become a Believer in Autotheism

For fans of Between the Buried and Me, Opeth and Necrophagist

If you’re a fan of The Faceless, you’re probably wondering why I’ve listed Opeth and Between the Buried and Me as similar artists.  “The Faceless is technical death metal, not progressive,” you’re probably saying, while starting arguments in the comments section of a Youtube video.  True, their previous releases were tech metal through and through.  However, Autotheism, which was released on August 14th, is about as progressive as it gets.  Yes, it’s a strange transition.  But it still freaking rocks.

However, when a band comes virtually out of nowhere and puts out a stellar album with all the right skill, sound and experimentation, it’s truly a thing of beauty. The reason I say this is because a band has just recently done exactly that. A band from right here in the San Francisco Bay Area. They’re called Fallujah, and they’ve set a new standard for Technical and Atmospheric Death Metal with their first full length album, The Harvest Wombs. Read more of this post
