Suggested Listening — Week of March 3rd, 2017

INTERVALS — The Shape of Colour
So I've been on a serious instrumental progressive metal binge lately. Stuff like Scale the Summit, Polyphia, Modern Day Babylon, Chimp Spanner, and easily the most impressive out of all of them, Intervals. Oh my god, I seriously can't stop listening to The Shape of Colour. I've played it in the store like five times since I discovered it last week. This is seriously some of the best, most impressive, coolest sounding guitar work I've ever heard. I just wish there was more of this album. I'm eagerly awaiting word on a new album from Intervals, and anticipating the restock of the CD on their District Lines. The entire album is available to stream on their YouTube. Go listen to it. Show Aaron as much support as possible. Buy a t-shirt. Buy the digital download. Talk to him on Twitter. Tell your friends.

As always,

Change of Rules, One Last Time

So I'm gonna do Suggested Listening a little differently from now on (yeah, I know I'm changing it up again, I'm sorry), from now on, it's only gonna be one album, and it could be any genre.

So, gee, it's been a while, hasn't it, guys? Well, whatever—time to get back to reviewing. Senses Fail just released their new acoustic EP today, and I just listened to it on my drive back from the store. It's pretty darn good. And it's certainly a step up from 2015's Pull the Thorns from Your Heart and has me pumped for the album they're teasing for later this year.
