Part Pantera, Part Mastodon and a touch of everything else!
COMMENTS:
Self-dubbed as Southern Progressive Metal, Of The Sun - hailing from Austin, Texas - are about to release their second helping of uniquely blended metal. Almost 8 years since the release of their debut album, Before A Human Path is a breath of fresh air for the metal community. Although I could be picky about some of the production efforts and the semi-sloppy transitions between mid-tempo and faster grooves, this 27 minute EP is a nice surprise to these ears! The vocals - growls and clean - are superb but feel a bit drowned in the mix. Every song is different and contain many metal sub-genres. Great album from a lesser well-known band.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Pantera, Mastodon, 90's Death Metal
