Subversion: Animi

Subversion are a five-piece technical metal act from the UK who are following up their acclaimed debut Lest We Forget with the equally strong Animi. Playing many live gigs with the likes of Tesseract, Mnemic, Monuments, and Xerath has really helped them solidify their melodic extreme metal/tech-death style, which mixes growling & clean vocals, jackhammer rhythms, complex guitar riffs, and industrial keyboards. Fans of the pummeling djent style made famous by Meshuggah will certainly find lots to enjoy here, as the crushing rhythms of "Revelation" hammer you senseless but the band finds a great way to inject some addicting melodic vocal lines amid all the fury. "Entropy" perfectly meshes the technical with the ultra-heavy, while "Novation" and the title track prove just how 'progressive' these guys can get. Perhaps the most raging track here is "Catalyst", complete with venomous growls and crushing riffs, and "Born of the Sun" is a safe bet for any fan of classic In Flames, Soilwork, or Mnemic.

Animi is a very solid affair, which I can highly recommend to any fan of Periphery, Tesseract, and Meshuggah.
