Epic Tantrum - Abandoned in the Stranger's Room (2020)
The debut album from this US band.
The band is a quartet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars and vocals.
I am a bit surprised and joyful over the amount of new US prog bands who released their first album during the first quarter of this year. Covid 19 or no Covid 19.
Some of the albums are very good and some are not that interesting.
Epic Tantrum gives us ninety minutes of a mix of vaudeville rock, US neo-prog og progressive metal.
The vocals are a mix of male and female vocals. Well, some of the vocals sounds like female vocals. Maybe they are male vocals after all. They are not particular good either.
The music is pretty dynamic and heavy.
The music is not entirely convincing either. It is music somewhere between decent and good. It is an album well worth checking out. I am not entirely won over, though....
