This week we have a great interview! If you haven't heard of Cyborg Octopus, you should! Check out my review here. David Wu, the man who is behind 90% of the curtain joins us to talk about the process of song writing, progressive metal, creativity and much more. One of the best interviews we've had! After that, we go
"Visualize" is an absolute monster of a track, blending the best things that modern, progressive metal has to offer. The names that ought to be conjured in your mind while we speak about this track are Persefone, Gods of Eden and their ilk. Right off the bat, you know what to expect: you have your intricate guitar riffs. You have your jazzy, weird-ass breaks. You have your excellent, complex drumming. But you also have amazing synths scattered above the guitars and serving a fantastic supporting role. More than an afterthought, they add a depth and a flair to the track, creating this neon-blue, sharp sensation which coalesces beautifully with the guitars. Head on over to one minute and thirty seven seconds for a beautiful bridge/solo from the guitars that works amazingly with the synths to get what I'm talking about.
