The Safety Fire – Grind The Ocean

The Safety Fire
Grind The Ocean

Mixed feelings for me…This album starts, as a down-tuning, dark contemporary Progressive Metal affair…Then it become to look like a more Metalcore beast…Then again it should remind you some Alternative Math…And even some Screamo or Experimental Shredding’ Pop…To find the right style, I’ll dare to say: British Progressive Mathcore…But at the end it’s truly a Modern Progressive Rock album ,with all those influences mixed for the best and the worst…

The instrumental tracks are the easiest to digest ,as I think the occasional ‘Harsh-Djent-like voice” could be considered by some Prog fans as too extreme…The players are very talented and the production by Guitar player Derya Nagle is top notch…I have great expectations for them in a near future…So, if you like the adventurous Modern Progressive Rock / Metal: It’s a quite recommended platter…For the others ,there is plenty of more traditional Prog stuff…For my part, I subtracted a point because of the voice that is not always in the best side of my (good) taste and a little monotonous, but the incredible skills displayed in most songs and the intriguing sudden melodies are always in the right time to keep my interest for this album alive. Oh and…What the hell is “DMB (FDP)”???
