3 stars Well, in the world of prog there had to come a moment when a band called Tesseract would write a song about Palingenesis. Anyway, this young British band's songs typically alternate between sections that are more atmospheric and dreamy and those with a wall of sound and odd stop-start rhythms, with a radio-friendly high-register vocal wailing over and a very prominent bass, and then when those counterpoints are combined. . Not your regular approach, I guess. Britain confirms its reputation as a place for forward-thinking prog metal nowdays. But this all songs built on the same techniques, it does get tedious. More surprises would be appreciated, but only in one song closer to the end was I pleasantly surprised when I heard some sax thrown in.
