Nascent biography
NASCENT is a duo from Boston/USA with Jeff Briggs (guitars, bass, synth, vocals) as the mastermind. It all started with some musical ideas by Briggs who wanted to have more than a one-off project. Someday he figured out that he's on the same musical wavelength with drummer Libor Hadrava, a native Czech Republic and Berklee music student. At the end of 2005 they decided to form the band NASCENT as the core members.

Supported by Tom Hanslowe (bass) and Justin Francos (electric piano) the band has put six interesting songs on their eponymous debut from 2006, mostly instrumental. Musically NASCENT offers something else than prog metal pure. It's a symbiosis with several leanings from jazz rock/fusion to psychedelic which has to be pointed out when listening to the album.

NASCENT has delivered a good opening statement, skillfully arranged as the result of the musical chemistry between Briggs and Hadrava.

Nascent Progressive Metal

Review by Windhawk
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars US-based band Nascent provides some original ideas to highly explored genre progressive metal on their debut.

Mixing prog metal with other genres isn't uncalled for or unknown, but the way nascent goes about it is a bit different. First and foremost; the drumming is mostly jazz-tinged in all tunes, resulting in some real contrasts in the soundscapes at times. The first two tunes on the album explore some rather nifty asynchron riff and drum patterns too, further enhancing this influence. On the last 4 tunes on this release ambient music, ballads and space rock are all mixed in with Nascent's brand of progressive metal - most times given specific segments of their own. Some details are carried over into the metal segments too, which do create a strong feeling of thought about the cohesion of these compositions.

If you like prog metal and wants to try out a slightly different flavour; this is a release you might wanna check out. Especially if jazz mixed with metal sounds like a good idea.
