Distorted Horizon

This is something new for me, progressive metal from Estonia. As far as I know, this is their first release after series of demos, so let's take a look at how this EP sounds like.

After quite calm beginning, Views On Views gets heavier a bit later on. Sweet vocals from Kadri Ratt suite the calm and jazzy guitar and bass playing nicely. Atmosphere is flowing like on some 70's prog album. Distorted Horizon then starts with odd sample thing, but the song turns into another jazz-metal piece, where Ratt sounds a bit like Björk. Also there are some heavier guitars, while they're kept quite minimum.

Bit more heavier guitars are found on Information Intoxication, which on the other hand is a more popish sounding song. In the middle they go back to the 70's for a moment and then back to heaviness. Closing tune Human Animal is the heaviest song here and a good one with less jazzy stuff and more metal. If you're looking for something different, this sure will answer your call.
