Review by JJLehto
4 stars "Continuum" is a lot thrashier than Prototype's first album. However, their technicality and musicianship is still very noticeable. There are certainly alot of thrash elements on this album. Lots of, very fast, tremolo picking, blistering double bass and blazing guitar solos. However, give it a listen and you will hear these guys not only know how to play their instruments but they understand music.

Every instrument, the guitar, bass and especially drumming are all amazing. I was particularly taken with the drumming on this album. The opening song is pretty straightforward thrash and has quite a metal solo in it, however you can also hear the technicality and their is a beautiful slower section in the middle. Perhaps my favorite on the album.

Sea of Tranquility is an acoustic instrumental and another highpoint on the album.

Seed is a great example of awesome guitar riffs, amazing drumming and wonderful composing skills.

Synthespian is another great song that displays the bands technicality and sounds a lot like something Fear Factory would produce. Devotion is another song along these lines, (though without sounding like Fear Factory) and you can hear some of the best drumming on the album.

However, Probe is the weakest song of the album and personally I don't like it. It is just boring and I can barely listen to the vocals. The vocals are another sour point about this album. They are not the worst, but they are certainly not the best. While he has some great moments he has some terrible ones, Devotion is particularly notable. A great song but whenever the vocals kick in I have to really strain to make it through. However, I really like his vocals on Undying, not too over the top. Vocals are the weak point of this album in my opinion, though the technicality and musicianship of these guys is great, and the songs are well built.

For those that can tolerate some heaviness and metal I'd give this album: Four Stars
