Koen B. : It’s been a while since we heard from the Portugese metalcore band ThirdSphere. I reviewed their ’Fire’ EP back in 2011 and since then everything seemed quiet, but appearances however can be deceiving. After ‘Fire’ came ‘Ice’ (2013) and a year later there was the ‘Songs Of Ice & Fire’ compilation album. ‘SYZYGY’ is the band’s first full-length album. It was self-released by the band so if you want to support these dudes by buying their stuff via their Bandcamp page.
Back to 2011: I wasn’t too fond of the ‘Fire’ EP, but nowadays the band is more of my liking. The band members are technically skilled these days and the compositions are improved as well. It’s a pity ThirdSphere doesn’t have a nice record company that is backing them up. Honestly, these Portugese fellows only need a company to distribute ‘SYZYGY’ worldwide. The rest is quite OK: songs, cover artwork, production etc etc. ThirdSphere plays metalcore to the core and from the heart. Check ‘em out, they deserve your attention.
