2 stars Dredg - Orph

A quick little EP that I'll get into briefly. It comes before Leitmotif and features three songs, one of which is just an interlude piece. The first track, "Is Not Everything", contains a frantic, though non-exciting guitar riff as its backdrop, and builds into some cacophonous singing, and yes, rapping segments delivered by Gavin (the band remarkably comes off sounding like the Red Hot Chili Peppers on this track). Track two, "Orph" is but a neat little interlude full of interesting sounds. The final track "Kayasuma", is heavy and interesting throughout--a worthy closer.

A nice little EP that serves its place well as a sort of segue into Leitmotif and what it would contain. For fans of the band, this is highly recommended, but for casual listeners, or fans of their later period exclusively, this one is probably not worth your time. 2 stars--Collectors/Fans only, as they are the only ones likely to care about it anyway.
