5 stars First off, who in their right mind allows you to download their EP for free!?! That's right, The Deadstation. does. So who was I to refuse free music (which I ended up liking it so much I bought a hard copy anyway!)? I downloaded and hit play. Right away you are hit with "Hundred Foot Drop" that sounds like it could come straight off a later day Pink Floyd cd, but don't get too comfortable because it changes up fast and right in your face with "Subsistence Definded." The roller coaster ride continues with "Like Peering Into the Deepest Abyss," "Drugs for the Pain Inside," and the narrated "August 4th." That is something to note since a couple of songs have narration on them but it fits, it works completely! "Anything But This...Anywhere But Here" bay be the most accessible song on the cd which for Prog listeners isn't usually that much of an issue, but for non prog music listeners gives them something to hang their hats on. "I Cannot Explain Myself Anymore" is another more accessible tune while still staying true the progressive metal format. "Slowly, But Surely, I'm Drowing" is another excellently narrative but the music behind it so haunting and fitting to what is being spoken that all it does is expand the atmosphere this EP creates. The cd version has a bonus track, "Limitless, or So it Seams" which helps make the cd purchase feel a little more justified although it is completely justified without it and the track is more in line with more uptempo tracks like Anything But This...Anywhere But Here." I must say, for a debut EP, the songs are excellently produced and mixed! No indie quality here! The other great thing about The Deadstation. is how interactive they are with their fans! These guys get it and seem to genuinely appreciate all the support and interaction they receive from their fans which given the right avenue I believe will lead to much bigger things for these guys. The next step for The Deadstation. is a full length cd and a tour, which will take some doing because these guys are like Rush in more ways than just some influence on their music, they are a three member band. It will be interesting to see what direction these guys take, they have the musicianship to go anywhere and the creative ability too. At the very least, it will be worth your time to download their free mp3 version of the music but I recommend getting the cd, but I may be just bias, my name is listed in the liner notes, lol, they listed all the fans that responded to a FB post in their liner notes, so how cool is that!!!
