Holy shit! That was my first impression of this band when I clicked the Play button. Their style of Death Metal isn't necessarily popular today, but not as far fetched a sound than it was in 1997. They played, to an extent, Symphonic Death Metal. Starseed has tried to reform a couple of times; they even started recording new material at one point. But I think it is very unfortunate that they could not bring it together and see if they could create music as good as this again.
I cannot express in words how hard I could headbang to this EP. Everything about it just makes me think what this band could have done if they had stayed together. I seriously have a hard time focusing on anything else because everything they did was original and breathtaking. The riffs are all their own, and there wasn't really anything they could take them from anyway. Through the creation of their sound they included keyboard symphonics, making the music all the more "epic."
Starseed had a form of intensity to their music that is rarely replicated. This just brings everything together and completes the sound. With the symphonics and the sci-fi lyrical themes, the music just seems to make sense and stick in your head. The EP is a free download on their MySpace page, go for it. You want to fucking headbang?
