How To Let Go
Shell From Oceanic Progressive Metal

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator PSIKE Team & Band Submissions

4 stars Short, but very good! With solely roundabout 30 minutes running time 'How To Let Go' comes as a condensed non-conceptual album provided by the band SHELL FROM OCEANIC. The crew is consisting of four musicians hailing from Portugal. And they are cultivating their own unique instrumental prog style. While either being a band with heavy rock approach, but also incorporating a somewhat ambient/symphonic feel again and again, this due to the proper use of electronics. Will be served by both guitarists César Ramos and Cláudio Frank, it does look like, as I couldn't find any credits for key instruments. A synthaxe or similar stuff may be in use particularly.

But at least when listening to Dancing In Circles there's a jazzy organ resp. rhodes piano to state definitely. Anyhow, they know how to let it go most certainly. The result sounds sophisticated and rather unconventional. Crimsonesque leanings all over, post rock guitar walls, ambient patterns, versatile drum and bass playing. Described by the quartet as a loose song collection 'using various approaches and different genres to convey moods' the album sounds completely rounded so much the more. Fabulous starter I'd say! Half an hour preferably in one go, can't get enough of this currently ...

Thanks to rdtprog for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
