Beak: Eyrie

Beak is the perfect name for this so-called "post-metal" band, whose debut album merges blistering extreme music and expressive progressive rock into a twisted, stabbing amalgam of angry vocals, serrated riffs and melodic noise. The degree of alternating violence and tranquility in these five songs is both astonishing and unsettling, and it is what makes Eyrie so memorable.

Vocalist Jon Slusher explains in the press materials that accompanied this disc that "'Eyrie' is the nest of a bird of prey built in a high, inaccessible place. The album is conceptual. It's the path of ruin, the crumbling of empires and the marching of time." How Beak manages to get all those ideas across in 25 minutes is beyond me, but the band's blurring of genres to create surreal sonic landscapes that cry and bleed deserves adventurous listeners' ears.

Track Listing:
1) Angry Mother of Bones

3) Men at Arms
