The Vicious Head Society: Guaranteed sci-fi metal satisfaction
Meet exploratory metal crew The Vicious Head Society and prepare to have your mind blown
One of the major drawbacks of playing more progressively minded metal is that there is a formidable amount of work involved, not least in terms of piecing those convoluted concept albums together. As a result, the fact that The Vicious Head Society’s extraordinary debut album, Abject Tomorrow, is essentially the work of one man (albeit with a few guest musicians, including legendary death metal drummer Kevin Talley) may be enough to make your brain pop. It’s a monumental piece of intricate and extravagant metallic bombast that marks out its creator, Graham Keane, as a major new talent in the prog metal world. Remarkably, Graham is almost comically humble about his achievement.
