Bands
Disperse

DISPERSE inject fresh momentum into the progressive genre. On their second full-length Living Mirrors this young Polish band demonstrates that they have learned the essential grammar of their musical language by heart. There are moments of hovering fluidity taken from the void left by Pink Floyd. You will find the complexities of cascading syncopated breaks, odd-time signatures and all these tools of trade that Dream Theater brought close to perfection. And most of all, there is a strong undercurrent of Cynic's playful approach in elegantly fusing hard Metal sounds with just any style they deem appropriate ranging from Jazz to electronic elements.

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.
