Review by b_olariu
3 stars Amogh Symphony is a young technical/extreme progressive band formed in 2003 in Mumbai - India, around the excellent musician from this country - Vishal Jit Singh. The music is a combination of progressive metal and indian classical melting with the extreme brutality of technical death metal, but also some jazz elements are added in the whole structure of the album to give a certain groove. The whole album doesn't sound bad, but are to many genres melting each other here and the result is nothing realy impressive. For ex a piece beggins with some elctronic keys and next out of the blue some death metal riffs appered, who doesn't incorporated very well with that electronic aproach, it's long way 'till this band will controled very well this amalgamation of genres. Not bad but not realy excellent either. Abolishing the obsolete is the title of the album released in 2009 will not captured the listner instantly, it's a grower and in the end the fans of tech extreme progressive metal will enjoy this promissing debut but far from a brilliant work. I will give 2.5 rounded to 3, because some guitar parts are very good, tend to be more on jazzy side, very complex and well done. Good but totaly non essential work.

4 stars Jamming Jazz 'n' Extreme Metal, that's brutal combination. Of course, intro track (and last song) are completely different from the rest of this album so listener will be shocked even more. I suppose it's a good move when so many bands are doing it this way.

I would be glad to give good rating, but even this is thrilling album and is full of atmospheric pieces (second half of Greenhouse Effect), this album lacks something. Indeed, this is serious grower and with every listen, my thinking about "Abolishing the Obsolete System" improves. Few more and it will become masterpiece.

Ahem, jokes aside, "Amogh Symphony" does very well, bringing what's very important for me - variety. Maybe it's crazy mixture of bunch of different elements that fortunately works in my case. Yeah, I like this record, how it's variable with one uniting genre - good old Tech/Extreme Prog Metal.

4(-), keep on good work.

2 stars Highly reccomended to DJENT fans. Amogh Symphony is the indian musical project made by Vishal J. Singh. A technical & progressive extreme metal, in a random jam style, including indian classical/jazz fusion, electronic music and more, named Hybrid Metal by critics. Impressive how it works, ...

3 stars A very interesting debut from this new band from India. Amogh Symphony introduce Indian music (and jazz) into their technical death and progressive metal sound. The vocals are this new grindcore growls we know from the likes of Cephalic Carnage. Not straigth death growls, but grindcore growls ... (read more)
