Nem-Q - Fault Lines

Label : Eigen beheer | Archive under prog / sympho metal

Release type: Full-length CD

Bart D. : There comes a point in everyone's life when one wonders: have I outgrown the interest in concept albums by progressive rock/metal bands? It's been a while since such a thing could really intrigue me. Main flaws often are: the concept is one-dimensional, and the music isn't keeping it up either. Nem-Q skips those flaws. The music is intriguing, emotive and captivating. So much so, that I even assume their latest record being a concept package, even though they don't say so explicitly...

'Fault Lines' really feels like a story from beginning to end. This is thanks to an enormous load of melodic and rhythmic hooks woven together and great playing overall. The vocals, the guitars, the bass, the drums, the keyboards: I could go into detail on all of it. But I could also summarize it all: this is what a symphonic rock/metal record ideally is. Recommended!
