I have to thank member Tom G for sending me an advanced copy his band’s brilliant’s outstanding debut album – "In Liberating The Conscious We Free Ourselves From Restraint". Due for release in 2012 this could be a contender for one of next year’s best albums in the realm of Experimental Metal.
Tom G also runs the excellent blog – Big Spaceship. And he does an excellent job there.
I will let the band themselves describe their superb album and influences.
"We are PLACE OF THE HIDDEN GOD from Leeds. We are an unsigned band and we play heavy polyrythmic metal akin to our influences such as; THE OCEAN, INTRONAUT, MESHUGGAH, VILDHJARTA, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and LAMB OF GOD to name but a few, but we are very much open to anything that inspires us; heavy or not."
There is a more in-depth analysis on their excellent Facebook bio that makes for superb reading.
Well the album is a brilliant hybrid of many genres and ideas that will demand multiple listenings as one enough just wont do. Superbly played and produced. This is one album that doesn’t fit into any category but goes through a whole range of different genres to brilliant effect.
The album is full of epic Experimental Tracks that will have the listener feeling breathless at times. Well it did for me. This is one of the most strangest and unique debut albums I have heard in a long while.
The album title itself will tell you what to expect. This might not be an easy listen for some but for people that stick with it will find a truly diverse album to listen to time and time again.
These guys have created some of the most original and intense riffs of this year. Well in 2012 when this brilliant album is finally released.
When this album is finally released I urge you all to grab a copy. You can hear four tracks from their BandCamp Page. And the 5th one from their Soundcloud Page.
A brilliant album from another superb experimental band coming out of the UK. Highly Recommended.
