The Australian metal quintet Massic released the LP Redshift a few hours ago.
A ten track album (available on bandcamp) of darkly menacing metal that spins through the ears like a colony of bats intricately circling a cave.
Far more than thrashing the instruments and playing at breakneck speed Massic deliver music which is nuanced and thoughtful in delivery, sometimes ear-bleedingly loud other moments layered by guitars swirling around each other and taking unexpected almost subliminal pauses, creating an LP where each song offers something distinctly different, yet all drawn from a burning rage against a system which oppresses minorities and is geared towards exploitation for the betterment of those who already have too much.
My pick of the release being the fourth – Torched Order.
