I have been very excited recently, because American progressive/avant-garde metal band Subterranean Masquerade is getting close to releasing a new album – one that I have been waiting for since their previous and only full-length release in 2004. It was an absolutely stunning and very unique experience, blending progressive rock with doomy metal and all sorts of psychedelic jazzy elements, and has remained one of my favourite albums to this day.
Judging by their recent single, titled Home, this upcoming new album will not be a disappointment. The titular song takes a few listens to get into for an old fan of the band, but does become a stunning piece when the new and somewhat colder soundscape really sinks in. The album also contains an awesome The Mission cover and a track that was cut from the previous album, which is a nice bonus. In conclusion, my hunger for more Subterranean Masquerade is growing!
