Godsticks: Emergence

Album Review

Cardiff band finally emerge as genuine contenders.

Every so often, a band will appear and produce a truly genre-redefining album. In progressive metal, there have been recordings of such stature that they become albums many try to emulate: high-water marks such as Queensrÿche’s Operation: Mindcrime, Dream Theater’s Scenes From A Memory, Tool’s Lateralus and Opeth’s Blackwater Park. It therefore comes as quite a shock that the third album from this engaging Cardiff act comes mighty close to becoming an addition to that illustrious list.
