Canvas Solaris - Penumbra Diffuse (Mega Blowout Sale)
A few of you bought this band's great 2nd album, Sublimation. Now they have returned for their 3rd and best yet on Sensory. Unbelievably, intensely great instrumental technical metal trio from South Carolina. Just guitar/bass/drums playing with terrific speed and precision. This one is a lot more produced than their earlier efforts, with overdubs and nice textures added (acoustic guitars, keyboards). So you get the sound of Spiral Architecht/Behold...The Arctopus crossed with The Fucking Champs, with a bit of influence from modern King Crimson and perhaps even mathrock pioneers Don Caballero! And it's instrumental, so you don't have to listen past a singer to hear what's going on here. Recommended.
