Check out White Arms of Athena’s “Astrodrama”
Have you ever listened to an album solely based on what you’ve heard people say about it? This is the case here with Texas’ White Arms of Athena. While I was out at a local FYE, doing an ancient practice known as “buying cds,” I stumbled upon White Arms of Athena’s debut album “Astrodrama.” I read a glowing review of the album on the blog Heavy Blog is Heavy so I decided to check it out and instantly became a fan.
What you’ll hear is Progressive Metal that refreshingly that isn’t Djent. Astrodrama sounds like if Between the Buried and Me kept with the sound from the Silent Circus had a love child with Cynic. One quality of the album that you don’t hear anymore is the album feels therapeutic and truly emotional with it’s warm production and natural sounds instead of sounding robotic and sterile. It’s a damn shame that this band isn’t a big as the bands I mentioned above because they deserve it.
But don’t read what I have to say about this band and this album; check them out now by click on the picture above!
