Prog-metal up-and-comers Escher are gearing up for the release of their new EP, The Ground Is Missing, which will be released this Tuesday by Primitive Ways Records. To get everyone ready for their 20-minute onslaught of unpredictability and tight musicianship, they’ve decided to release the opening track ahead of time. Check out ‘The Bog’ below:
‘The Bog‘ is a great summary of what’s to follow for the rest of the album: furious time changes, atonal-yet-catchy grooves, and a hint of jazz fusion courtesy of guest musician Aaron Hill’s saxophone freak-outs. The EP was mastered by Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, The Contortionist) and should be on the radar of anyone looking out for an interesting, new take on the proggier side of metalcore. The Ground Is Missing will be available on CD, cassette, and for download on their Bandcamp page.
