Votum: Time Must Have A Stop

Votum's full length debut Time Must Have A Stop is a welcome addition to the progressive genre. Votum are another impressive metal band from Poland, and the band's six members present their progressive metal spin on this charming CD with a tasteful outcome.

Going for quality over song number with eight strong compositions, the listener will find there is ample cool metal to be unearthed. Time Must Have A Stop has a fitting spectrum of music, with calmer times to those on the buoyant fine metal rocker "Look at Me Now", the growls on this number are quite the complementary addition. "Men In The Dark" commences peacefully before the heaviness takes hold. All those involved have stepped up with very pleasing performances on vocals, guitars, bass and keys, without being over the top and just playing what's needed. Drummer Adam Lukaszek adds some very nice touches with fills and kick patterns on this album, instead of just being a time keeper applying a straight beat. Time Must Have A Stop radiates atmosphere, Votum obviously put considerable effort into this department.

Next time you're searching for new metal keep Votum's Time Must Have A Stop in mind, especially if you are looking for a progressive band that's big on atmosphere and quite catchy whilst not being overly technical. This one is certainly a nice change of pace.
