The Mexican progressive-metal quintet Anima Tempo are currently working on their second LP.
The first track to appear from the tentatively pencilled in album, was itself made available as a stand alone single on the 18th.
Primal Symmetry showcases yet a further indication that metal has travelled far from its roots of purely loud and fast to constructs of immense prowess and why what was a self evident genre has fractured in to so many sub categorisations. Whilst earsplitting volume and blurring speed still has plenty of space in my listening repertoire, what is equally welcome is the more qualitative approach where melody comes first and Anima Tempo are at the vanguard to what should perhaps best be generically described as nu-metal – where the layers of songs are at the heart of the compositions.
Primal Symmetry – Single – Anima Tempo is available on iTunes*
