The Foolishness of God

Rated 0/5 (0%) (0 Votes)

This is a progressive metal band that also flirts at times with 70s-style progressive rock. I can hardly say anything bad about the musicianship here, this stuff is top notch, although, this being a metal web site, I have to mention that many musical parts don't have much metal in them, and I found this a bit too quiet -even a bit boring- at times. Not that I need to headbang madly at all times, but I don't like quiet stuff that could be on some sleepy radio station. :) That's the bad part, the good part is that somehow this whole thing fits well together and the result is very impressive. The vocals are of the clean variety, also showing some 70s influence at times. Very good singing, plus some well-placed spoken parts. Note that this will most likely be really appreciated by prog fanatics, not the amateurs of heavier, more brutal stuff. Another thing that I have to mention is that this is a Christian band, and the lyrics do carry a Christian message (very blatantly, I must add), to the point of being a bit annoying. This might put off people who make it a mission to bash Christianity, so it's definitely not for these people. If this is the kind of topic that doesn't bother you (or you simply don't give a damn), then it's worth checking out if only for the quality of the music present here. Just don't expect to overdose on metal with this one.
