Anglesee - Stories (2018)
The debut album from this Australian band.
Anglesee is a trio with a lineup of guitars, bass, drums, keyboards and vocals.
There is a lot of new bands coming through from all over the world. That in a scene where the chance of a career is nill, zero. But still the bands are coming..... GREAT !!
Anglesee has delivered a modern prog album in the vein of Porcupine Tree. There are some King Crimson and prog metal influences here too. The album even comes complete with a couple of minutes of death metal growls.
There is also a lot of ambience here and the music is laidback and cool. The music reminds me a lot about the cover artwork. A cover artwork very fitting for the music on this forty odd minutes of music long album.
The vocals, even the death metal growls, are very good. Ditto for the rest of the band and the sound.
The songs too are very good. This album is one of the best "name your price" bandcamp album I have heard for ages. It is most definate worth some dollars, euros or pounds.
Check out this very good album.
