Tardive Dyskinesia
The Sea of See Through Skins
Style: Math Metal
Release date: October 12th 2009

Greece delivered in 2008 an absolute “must have” with Septic Flesh “Communion”. Does the cradle of European civilization have something for us in 2009? Yes, Tardive Dyskinesia for example, which does not play symphonic death metal as SF, but a math one, signed by Coroner Records (Nice name, makes me remember how I miss Broder, Edelmann and Vetterli, but that is another story…).

To give you a first idea, Tardive Dyskinesia is not so oppressive and demanding as Meshuggah. They give good room for melody and it help the listener catch and appreciate this second opus almost immediately.

When Coprofago mixes its math with brilliant and atmospheric jazz, Tardive Dyskinesia does the same but with power metal and hardcore, with a real sense of composition. Some parts make me think about Pantera.

More efficient than innovative or progressive, “The Sea of See Through Skins” will probably not become the album of the year, but still a recommended way to start a brand new day: not so bad in this time of crisis.
