Solar Soma - So Much For Style (2013)

The debut album from this Adelaide, Australian band.

The band has released this album as a "name your price" album on Bandcamp and that is a good career move as this is a debut album. The band should also reach a good and receptive audience with this album.

The music here is a mix of progressive rock, progressive metal and djent. Cat Johns (female) vocals is one of the focal points of this band and draws comparisons with the likes of Panic Room and Touchstones. The guitars are aggressive and in the progressive metal vein. At times, they are also riffing in the djent traditions. The guitars can be pretty melodic too. The keyboards adds a melodic touch to the album while the drums and bass is thundering along.

The quality of the music is good throughout and this album is more than acceptable. The lack of any great tracks is a problem. I am not that enthusiastic about their djent pieces. Maybe I am a bit too old for this. Check out the album from the link below and make up your own mind.
