Depths “Endless”

The complexities of one of New Zealand’s best technical metal acts evolves tenfold in what can best be described as a futuristic contribution to the hardcore-djent space. While the band clearly mimics Meshuggah’s Obzen, it’s highly comparable to what A Life Once Lost did on A Great Artist, and what Ion Dissonance accomplished on Minus The Heard. While it’s hard to imagine, Depths are certainly more extreme than either of those two bands, taking what they love from the metal legends and weaving it into their brand of death metal and magically careening their way out of nine tracks as smoothly as possible. For as intense as the record is, it’s super fluid enabling multiple listens with ease. This should be the record to land Depths alongside their big brother peers down under in Thy Art Is Murder and Parkway Drive.
