StarGazer: A Merging to the Boundless: Void of Voyce LP

The latest release from Australia's StarGazer, titled A Merging to the Boundless: Void of Voyce , is exactly as the name implies, and that is a re-recording of their 2015 album without vocals. Instrumental progressive death metal you might ask? Yep, that's exactly what the band give us here. A Merging to the Boundless was already a pretty mighty affair in its initial release, here the focus is all on the sprawling, intricate arrangements, with not a growl in sight. Tunes like "Old Tea" and "An Earth Rides Its Endless Carous" are allowed to show all their little nuances, which blend brutal death metal with prog, black metal, jazz fusion, and classic hard rock. The title cut features some splendid riffing and gymnastic rhythms, and the epic "The Grand Equalizer" brings to mind vintage Opeth as well as classic Death with its mixing of gorgeous atmospheric elements and technical extreme metal. Love the dissonant, avant-garde sounds of Gojira? Check out the raging "Ride the Everglade of Reogniroro" and the wild "Black Gammon" for a similar vibe to that veteran band.

If you've never heard A Merging to the Boundless or StarGazer before, here is an intriguing place to start your journey. Should you already be familiar with both, this will be a alternate revisit to that 2015 gem that you would be well advised to investigate.
