Prog Reviewer
4 stars Blotted Scince is a technical progressive metal band from USA, featuring well known musicians from this zone, mostly from extreme bands, like Ron Jarzombek , the brain of the band coming from Watchtower and Spastilc Ink, bassist from death metal band Cannibal Corpse - Alex Webster and on drums the excellent Chris Adler from Nile and Hate Eternal. So, what do we expect from the album named The machinations of dementia, and implicit from the music, well, technical to extreme , instrumetal album all, with powerfull arrangements, bursting guitars, with some here and there fusion elements added, make from this album a total winner to my ears. What I don't like at some point, is that the album is to long, and here and there to much the same playing, but nevertheless great in the end. I like the album, but I don't considered to be a masterpiece of the genre, realy, I know more eleborated albums in same vein, more diverse and intristing. The musicianship is excellent of course, because all are professional musicians with years behind in musical bussines, musicaly speaking the album is very jazzy sometimes combined with very technical progressive metal parts, pleasent most of the time, but not groundbreaking, at least for me. It took me a lots of spins 'till I fully get the album entirely. Similar bands, Canvas Solaris, Behold... The Arctopus. 3.5, maybe rounded to 4 this time only.
