5 stars So I have been following kettle spider boys on there progressive rock journey for several years now, I still remember the first time I saw these guys at the espy at least five years ago. A unforgettable performance to say the least. I have been a fan of progressive music for a very long time since I was about ten to be precise when my grandfather gave me a box of cd's which include stuff like Opeth, king crimson, yes, pink floyd, dream theatre and other similar artists but the real turning point for me is when I heard Opeth deliverance! I will still never forget the emotions I felt that day and still crave to date. So straight to the point after discovering kettle spider I bought there first album avadante which was in my eyes the best Australian instrumental progressive rock album that came out that year.. I was super impressed with the result of their first album. years where passing buy and I was becoming quite anxious to hear what these boys have been up to checking in quite regularly with the band "where's the new shit". slowly they where chipping away behind the scenes bringing out little teasers here and there which was enough to get the taste buds going. Then recently Simon the drummer from the band gave me early access to their new self title album after dream theatres most recent Melbourne show. Wow omg damn are you guys hearing this, Was my initial response!! These guys absolutely nailed it. Not only is the album mixed and recorded to perfection the musicianship and the level of complexities in this album really show case how much these guys love progressive music and know their audience, a album I'm sure they would enjoy listening to them selves. Starting at track one you feel at home with the more classic kettle spider feels and vibes... Move forward about 2 mins this is where the head exploding begins. I have been asked to write a review about this album but to be honest I don't even know where to begin this album has it all. spacey yet beautiful melodies complemented by Godzilla riffs to back them up, tasty and punchy rhythm section pushing the whole album forward and down when its appropriate ,Spooky yet powerful keys sections which bring chills to listener and the guitars. guitars. GOD damn these boys know how to tell a story the satch man would be proud. On top of this the song writing on this album is beautiful it has all the riffs and dynamic changes that prog fan needs as well as some crazy circus vibes going on. Do your self a favour by this album and support these guys they have tapped on to something special. A Australian progressive album to chuck in the collection album to chuck in the collection that's for sure. I'm truly inspired and very impressed. you want riffs they got them .... in odd time.

great work guys!!
