Disperse - Foreword

Poland's Disperse have made one of the more diverse progressive rock records in recent memory. Forward is a precise blend of post-rock's delicate guitar lines, prog rock's complicated song structures, and metal music's forceful wall of sound when it needs to be. Yes, I know, fans of their last album are probably wondering why I didn't include djent in the genre descriptions. That's because most of the djent from Living Mirrors has evaporated and Disperse have changed gears.

Bands
Ulsect

It is hard to imagine Tilburg as the heart of darkness. Yet in musical terms, this expression qualifies as an apt description for the homely Dutch city that has spawned such acts as blackened extremists Dodecahedron and rhythmic progressives Textures. Out of this circle, Ulsect have emerged.

The death metal innovators feature guitarist Joris Bonis and drummer Jasper Barendregt from Dodecahedron as well as former Textures bass-player Dennis Aarts. It therefore hardly comes as a surprise that elements of their origins have permeated into Ulsect's eponymous debut album. You will find high technical precision and prowess woven into dense dissonance and lucent atmosphere.
