This band is awesome at creating obscure melodies.

This band is made up of four members. Sten Svenheim is on drums, Paul Bjorke on vocals and bass, Patrick Scantlebury on guitar and synth and finally Eywin Sundstrom and guitars.

Frantic Bleep is a nice new breath of fresh air to the prog-metal scene. This release is very good, most of the songs are pretty short, but very progressive in nature. My only problem is that it gets a little redundant at the end. Even with that, the songs are pretty exciting and the lead guitar work stands out. Besides the typical prog-metal style, the guitars go to some atmospheric lengths as well. The vocals are also done pretty well and feature a minimal amount of death growls, but are there merely to fill in the holes when the music starts to get a bit chaotic. Unfortunately there isn't too much to be heard from any of the other instruments on the album, but I think the music is focused around the aforementioned melodies.

This is a really good prog-metal album. A die-hard fan of the genre will certainly find good things in this. To those who don't like digging too deep in this genre, this won't be that special.
