Illogicist - The Unconsciousness of Living (2011)
I found out I can rely on Italy's Illogicist. Whether it's their latest opus, The Unconsciousness of Living, or their previous effort, The Insight Eye, it seems that I can always count on them to deliver totally decent and entertaining technical death death, even if it's a bit generic and forgettable. Sure, their music isn't overly complex, there are no crazy strong structures nor billions of sweep-picked notes every second and they don't tackle profound matters like astrophysics and molecular genetics in their lyrics, but they are getting better and better with each new release and they might soon become a tech death force to be reckoned with.
And yes, I am becoming a total tech death nerd these days, so expect more posts about bands that claim to be "jazzy" and "progressive" and sing about asteroids, worm holes, quantum physics and solar flares.
WE NEED MORE BANDS THAT SING ABOUT SPACE AND SCIENCE.
