Recommendation: Odyssey - An Abstract Existence (2011)

The band's name is a good indication...

Here's a band I saw being talked about in various metal blogs (primarily on Number of the Blog). Being curious I listened to their new album, An Abstract Existence, streaming on Bandcamp and I understood the fuss around them.
This is very good, even brilliant, instrumental progressive metal, technical, djent-y at times, powerful and epic. Indeed, it takes several listens until one gets a full grasp of the scope of the music here. A feast for the ears.

Odyseey are:
Jerrick Crites - guitar
Jordan Hilker - bass
Lukas Hilker - drums

Check out their Youtube channel.

You can stream on their bandcamp and buy the digital copy for now. The physical copes will be available soon.
