Gorod: A Maze Of Recycled Creeds
Gallic tech-metallers get lost in non-sequiturs
There’s a huge amount to admire about these French tech-death metallers’ highly accomplished fifth outing.
There are some inventive, affecting ideas, such as the proggy lead that opens Inner Alchemy in style, and the impressive shred is hard to find fault with. So it’s disappointing that it never quite sticks in the memory – or, for that matter, maintains the emotional impact some of the better passages provoke.
