On this wonderful day Gorod’s A Perfect Absolution was FINALLY available for digital purchase from my preferred music vendors, which I have been waiting months for. On this same day the new Allegaeon album Formshifter AND Weight of Oceans by In Mourning were also made available. All three albums were MUST-PURCHASE-IMMEDIATELY sort of affairs for me (here Amazon, please take my money). I revisited my appreciation of these bands on Technical Tuesday by spending some quality metal time with each band’s back catalog. I chose to focus on one album each.

I will begin this news briefing that I am not often the one to introduce new bands to people. In general, I feel like I am always the last one to show up for the party when it comes to exciting new bands and releases. Example: Allegaeon. The band’s full length, Fragments of Form and Function, was released in July of 2010, and I did not hear the album until late 2011.

By implementing prefix “melodic” they for sure can get to more casual metal maniax – because not everyone listens to such complex music as tdm is. Song writing is catchy and the soloing is very well done – almost amusing I must say. Below You can check the official video to “Biomech” track off this mentioned album.
Fragments Of Form And Function (2010)
