LAST CHANCE TO REASON
Talk about out of the box thinking! Last Chance to Reason’s latest endeavor, chock full of electronic blips and bleeps, comes with a companion video game custom-built on the concept of the squad’s comprehensive sophomore effort LEVEL 2. This 10-track excursion finds this Maine sextet progressively punishing eardrums with dazzling degrees of technical excellence and monstrous mounds of modern metallic heaviness, adroitly fusing the wares of obvious influences Cynic and Between the Buried and Me (whose very own Jamie King lent a hand behind the board) to their own schizophrenically futuristic style to create a smorgasbord of sci-fi metal with massive attention deficiency. Seamlessly switching from atmospheric to feral with grace and precision, Last Chance to Reason provides a fresh perspective with both their unique presentation and cerebral amalgamation of technology and music that makes LEVEL 2 a progressive metal masterpiece.
