last year progressive metal from
album consists of 7 mostly instrumental songs (and a Quicktime video for
an unreleased track "Mantra"). Indukti reminds me of no other
band, they are capable of creating the same kind of atmosphere that
Porcupine Tree does on some of their songs! They do remind me of
Tool in complexity, with some well-structured and brilliantly played
pieces of unique songs, where the guitar structures are dominating. I
won't call it riff-attacks or a wall of guitars, because this is
tranquil, psychedelic and very varied... but that said the music has
nothing to do with Tool, only in complexity.
is one the one hand a very special experience, with 5 extremely talented
and skilful musicians, their classical background is obvious in so many
ways, and when I mention, that they use the violin a lot, both as a
rhythm instrument, but also as a lead instrument, then it speaks for
you are up for a very special and strange journey down the path of
progressive metal, then I am sure Indukti will be worth your pennies,
but be warned: this album demands a lot of the listener!
"Cold inside... I" & "Shade"
