Fibonacci Sequence - Numerology (2010)
The debut album from this US band.
The band is a quartet with a lineup of mandolin, guitars, bass, drums and keyboards.
This band has just released a new album, their second album, and I thought it was a good idea to check out this band. I have heard a lot about this band. But I have never had time to check out this album.
The music on this album is a mix of instrumental progressive metal and instrumental progressive rock.
There is a lot of metal riffs here. But there is also some more pastoral melodies here. There are not many of those so this album is mostly an instrumental progressive metal album.
The mandolin and the keyboards adds some colours to this riff-o-rama fest. The music is really technical and a bit intricate. Math metal springs to mind at times. But the band is also able to carry a melody without very many timeshifts.
The band even creates some moods here and there. Mostly with the bass and piano.
The melodies here are not particular impressive and I am not a big fan of instrumental progressive metal albums. This seventy minutes long album is not making me a new fan of this genre either. It is a decent to good album which I am sure will win a lot of admirers to a band which is not the most well known band in the scene. They deserve a lot more attention.
