4 stars Most of the time, Math rock is too non stop, and emotionless for me, bands like Don cabellero are what I call too grindcore, but Tera Melos is something different. If theres one thing I love about Math rock, it's three or four guys with the skill of all the members of Dream Theater, but not being a bunch pretensious a**holes showing off. Math rock bands are more concentrated on creating an intense, fast paced, and extremely technical rythym, but as I said, it usually comes with the price of being just too much, especially for a hardcore post rock fan such as myself. Tera Melos though, knows how to control this grindcore effect, and utilzes both the speed, and technicality of Math rock, and the restraint, and snsibility of post rock. Leaving albums like this, leveled out, evenly distributed, and semi easy listening.

All the songs are basically gems, with the centerpiece of all of them being the amazing guitar riffing and technicality. If you watch some of their videos, you see the lead guitar player tapping away to form the melody, and you're just in shock as to how such technical stuff can make such beautiful music. Polyrythmic drumming is also a math rock essential, and this band does it great. The drummer is so furios the whole time, you may question how he dosent pop a blood vein, playing as fast and technical as he does. The only song I have a beef with is the twenty minuete long melody eight, I mean it's good, but it does drag on, and of course gets a little stale, and I just dont think it fits with all the other shorter songs, but really the song isnt that bad.

If you're a fan of seventies symph prog, I cant recomend this to you. If you're a fan of extremely chill post rock such as sigur ros, or GY!BE, I cant recomend this to you. If you're a fan of the faster side of post rock, or math rock, I highly recomend this amazing album to you. Even the tech metal fans might have a good time with this album. 4 stars.
