4 stars Tesseract - One

Okay, so this is my first review ever on this site, or on any site for that matter. But, to start off my first review, I thought I'd start off with one of my favorite progressive metal, or "djent", bands. Now I have to say this album didn't grow on me at first. But, some songs did stand out. The big majority of the songs that stand out are the Concealing Fate parts. Eden is also their longest, and that was also another track the stood out to me through my first listen. The rest of the songs I have to say weren't done as well as they didn't have much to stand out with. Well, to me that is.

Okay, why give this album 4 stars? For the songs, a majority of them are good. For musicianship, the drumming is superb and you can tell it is complex on most tracks. The vocals I also really enjoy. The melodic singing style of his voice just sounds wonderful to me. Now, the guitar and bass. Seems pretty standard to me. Nothing really stood out as great or outstanding. Probably the greatest moment with the guitars is during the breakdown in Deception, which is part 2 of the Concealing Fate. I also fancy album artwork, but I must say this one doesn't really stand out nor does it lack creativity. Could of used a little more design.

***** songs- Concealing Fate (All Parts), Eden. **** songs- April, Sunrise, Lament *** songs- Nascent
