Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars "The Fabulous" is the debut release by math/Prog Metal act Lye By Mistake. "The Fabulous" is a 5-track, 15:56 minute long EP.

The music is on the EP is quite spastic in nature and features many sudden abrupt shifts between intense extreme technical metal/hardcore parts with screaming aggressive vocals and mellower jazzy sections. References to an act like The Dillinger Escape Plan are valid. The songs are rather short and that turns out to be somewhat a blessing as each and every one of them leaves me exhausted and breathing for air.

The musicianship is outstanding on the EP and my only complaint when weīre talking musicianship is the vocals. I have a hard time enjoying the screaming schizophrenic vocal attack. An aquired taste for sure though and you should take a listen yourself to see if they suit your tastes better than mine.

The production is not fully professional. At least itīs not up to par with what I expect from a professional production. It lacks power and itīs a bit murky too.

"The Fabulous" ends up being an EP I donīt really enjoy much but quality canīt be denied and a 2.5 - 3 star (55%) rating is deserved. I mostly base my rating on the excellent musicianship and even though I donīt find the compositions very interesting I guess they are well composed if you enjoy the style.
