Scale The Summit March 29, 2009

Found this really talented, interesting new band earlier today. They’re called Scale The Summit, and they’re an instrumental band. At their music’s core, it’s metal with a progressive flavor – think Between The Buried And Me, but without the keyboard, the vocals, the oppressive minor-key riffage, and the “technical for the sake of being technical” stuff. I hesitate to use a term like “prog-metal” for them, because they, unlike most other metal bands, are actually not afraid to use major keys, and they have some slower, more melodic, relaxed parts in their music that are really captivating and beautiful. At some points, it’s almost like you’re listening to a heavier version of a band like Explosions In The Sky, but the music stays clear, open, and well-defined – it’s not suffocating or weighty enough to be compared to “post-metal” bands like Isis or Pelican.

They call their music “adventure metal”, so check them out if you wanna go for a ride.
