MicawberBeyond The Reach Of Flame

Estimated reading time: 2 minute(s)

★★★☆ A subtly interesting album, evincing a rethrashed form of progressive tech death album, with hints of Revocation, Black Dahlia Murder, Job For A Cowboy, and even Control Denied. Just when you think you know where it’s going, it throws a curveball. If there’s a downside here, it’s that it trades immediacy for memorability. Still, compelling from start to finish (with the second half feeling slightly stronger than the first, even).
