2 stars Deadsoul Tribe's debut album is a respectable attempt to create progressive rock. Unfortunately, the result isn't as successful as I imagined it to be in the first place. The beginning of the album seems to be so strongly influenced by Tool that I can say it practically looses it's originality. The most obvious mark is the bass that overtakes the guitar in a alternative style very similar to the one that can be listened throughout the entire discography of Tool. However there are some points during the 55 minutes of music in which the band achieves interesting melody such as the songs "One Bullet", "Coming Down" or "You". A strange aspect regarding the record is that i enjoyed the interludes more than the actual tracks. During those one minute songs the listener discovers the accomplishment of high musical ambitions in a progressive manner. Further more, the sensibility of those parts are impressing: as they are being located between roughly riffed music, the relaxing effect is emphasized. Another enjoyable aspect of self-titled album are the vocals. With an echoing post-production, the psychological effect leads to some high standard vocal interpretation to which I can only give credit. There are times when the voice saves the songs that either have become lame and unoriginal, either have passed from melody to noise. In conclusion, the album is good, but not worthy of three stars. It's lack of originality gives me a bad impression about Deadsoul Tribe, but this is only a debut album and i guess this might become an excuse at some point. Until then, I offer a 2 stars rating to DST's self-titled release.
