Consciousness Removal Project "The Last Season"
This is some of the most dynamic music I've heard in a LONG while, not to mention ambitious. The blending of classical instrumentation with the wet delayed guitars makes for an interesting juxtaposition, Especially when the everything jumps into a groove. Their influences don't stop at just post metal, there are some interesting electronica and borderline industrial things happening in the back ground. Now usually I can take or leave that whole sphere of music, but it's subtle enough that it's not too much. Think the Heavy-ness of Pelican's Australasia with the ambiance of an 80's movie soundtrack (something sci fi). This band is writing symphonies, not songs and they are using everything at their disposal to make something that is beautiful , moving, crushing and inspiring.
