Sleep Terror - Probing Tranquility

Artist: Sleep Terror
Album: Probing Tranquility
Genre: Technical Death Metal
Origin: USA (Seattle)
Year: 2006

I'm not normally a big death metal fan, so for me to listen to it death metal needs to be really good or really weird. This album is both. It's a purely instrumental album from a band that is now a one-man outfit (I guess some of the band's other material has death metal style vocals... but I just can't imagine that fitting in very well). The album is filled with technical guitar wankery that will please fans of Necrophagist (I am also a fan of Necrophagist), but the songs tend to be jazzy or funky as much as they are heavy.
