3 stars "Move Of Thought" is the debut full-length studio album by Moldovan death metal act Neuromist. The album was independently released as a free download in March 2010. Neuromist were already formed in the fall of 2004, but several lineup changes have postponed the release of "Move Of Thought". The album was originally planned for a 2007 release.

The music on the album is technical death metal with progressive elements thrown in (semi- jazzy/fusion soloing). The musicianship are excellent and the band are more than capable of playing the many tempo- and time signature changes featured in the tracks. Although I hear influences from a varity of technical/progressive extreme metal acts in the music Iīm actually mostly reminded of two of the probably lesser known acts in the genre in Tholus and especially Theory in Practice.

The sound production is decent, but a slightly more professional sounding production could have done wonders to an otherwise really great album. Itīs especially the drums that feature a cold digital sound that doesnīt suit the music that well. However just to set things straight Iīd like to point out that itīs a minor issue that doesnīt in any way ruin my listening experience.

"Move Of Thought" is overall a very intriguing debut album by Neuromist and despite my minor issue with the sound production, thereīs little to complain about here. The songwriting is strong and at times very intriguing but without ever losing brutality and aggression and as mentioned above the musicianship are very strong too. This is definitely a band Iīm going to follow. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

UMUR | 3/5 |
