Genetics - Cynosure (2019)
The second album from this Australian band.
The band is a quartet with a lineup of samples, bass, drums and guitars.
There is a lot of instrumental post-metal, post-rock and progressive bands and albums around these days. I am not a big fan of those and my heart is not jumping for joy when one of them comes up for review.
.... And that is quite often....
This band from Sydney, Australia releases their albums (and one single) through Bandcamp. A very wise choice indeed.
The album starts a bit promising with some samples and some neo-prog stuff.
We then leave progressive rock for a while and enters a landscape of post-metal, heavy rock and fusion.
There is a lot of guitar solos here. There is hardly anything else on this forty odd minutes long album. Guitar solos and guitar harmonies.
There is some colours to this album and it is not too bad. Nevertheless, this is a decent album and a reminder to myself that this is not my cup of tea.
