3 stars SCALE THE SUMMIT are a four piece band out of LA and this is album number five for the group. For some reason I was thinking they were a Post-Rock band simply by their name but no this is all instrumental, complex, melodoic, heavy and pleasant Prog Metal. Two guitarists, a bassist and drummer. I'm not going to say a lot about this one. It felt like every song had something I enjoyed about it but then every track also had something I wasn't that into. Yes each song has contrasts and different themes as they like to change it up a lot. I mostly enjoyed the melodic and pleasant parts although the start of "The Isle Of Mull" with the guitar echoing and intertwining with the other was cool, but like I said they don't stay in one place long. The riffs and heavier sections didn't do much for me and overall as I just feel I have a lot of instrumental Metal I like better than this album. A band well worth checking out though as they've released six albums so far and man these guys can play.
