‘Shores of the abstract line’ is not just the best thing Hypno5e have written, it’s a modern day masterpiece that sets a new standard for metal albums to aspire to.
‘Raangest’ is a near perfect exercise in intelligent, forward thinking metal and is the first essential release of 2016.
Odetosun have, amazingly, one-upped ‘God’s forgotten orbit’ and if you consider yourself a progressive metal fan then you should equally consider this to be an essential addition to your collection.
In an age where the progressive metal tag all too often means ‘a band that sounds a bit like Opeth’, Odetosun are genuinely progressive, forging their own path and sounding all the stronger for it.

‘Commuters’ excites the senses, makes you feel alive and inspired and I can think of no greater tribute to pay this stunning record – it is truly flawless.
A furiously perfect EP, this is utterly essential.
An album that only grows with time, ‘Portrait’ is an intelligent and exciting album indeed.
