Back in March, I reviewed Conquering Dystopia’s debut self titled album, and gave it a very deserving 4.5/5. The duo of guitar hero Jeff Loomis with Internet star Keith Merrow is a winning combination and when you throw in death metal legend, Cannibal Corpse bassist Alex Webster and Alex Rudinger on drums you’ve got one of the most gifted line ups in modern metal. Going along with Keith’s tradition of posting playthrough videos, he and Jeff have done just that for the excellent track ‘Tethys’, and you can find it below.
Being one of the most intense tracks on the album, and a personal favorite, I can’t help but be enamored at the skill on display. Loomis’s shredding is on par with any other guitar legend out there. Between the expertly shot and edited video, and undeniably stellar mix thanks to Audiohammer’s Mark Lewis, it’s a treat for both the eyes and ears. Here’s to hoping they release more of these brilliant peeks into their playing style!
