Montresor/Daybreak/2012 CD Review

Montresor are a band from Australia that plays a mixture of ambient and progressive rock with a black metal influence and this is a review of their self released 2012 album "Daybreak".

Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with no fast drumming or blast beats, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with riffing and bass leads that dominates throughout the guitar.

Rhythm guitars range from s low to mid paced riffs that are mostly heavy progressive rock that utilizes some black metal and dark ambient influences mixed in with a great amount of clean and soft playing while the lead guitars are very distorted sounding progressive rock guitar solos and leads.

Vocals are absent from this recording with the music being all instrumental, while the music themes cover darkness, mythology and philosophy, as for the production it has a very strong and powerful sound to it.

In my opinion Montresor are a very great sounding progressive rock/ambient/metal hybrid and if you are a fan of this s tyle, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Helios/Flight To the Moon" "Bertrand Russell" and "To The Cosmos". RECOMMENDED BUY.
