    Don't be misled thinking this is modern/djenty stuff based on the intro or the young look of the band. This is great prog metal with tons of chops, smooth melodies, & sweet grooves. There is quite a bit of Riverside influence on a few of the tunes.

    In fact, it's one of my favorite releases this year so far.

    The guitarist is one of the best new shredders out there. Check out the "feel" on the solo starting at the 2:55 mark.

    Yeah, this is in the queue for me. I look forward to hearing it, as I like their debut. My blurb from 2010:

    Disperse - Journey through the Hidden Gardens / prog metal

    Traditional prog metal from Poland. I rarely like releases in this genre, but Disperse executes all of the necessary elements so well, I could not help but be won over. Along with all the usual influences, I also hear a bit of Newbreed in their sound at times, though Disperse is mellower than their fellow countrymen.

    The guitar playing is superb. The songs didn't do much for me on first listen.

    It's a very challenging listen because of the contrast with the crazy chops and the mellow vocal style. This is headphone music at it's finest.

    I'm definitely not giving up on it, because despite the fact that hooks aren't obvious, the talent that went into the compositions is.

    I was going to make a thread for these guys tonight. So much amazing writing on both albums. I jut got my copy in today and it's almost a perfect match for what I wanted. Heavy, great vocals, very prog, and masterfully written. Jakub is definitely a rising star to watch.

    Listened to this album the last couple of days in the car. Reminds me of TERMINAL only the djent version. Excellent jazzy shit all through it.

    I might need to look further into these guys. I was a little turned off by their clip from the announcement video...but I could tell they were all very good musicians (esp that guitarist).
