For â‚¤1 (or more) you can have this 12 track release via Bandcamp. Or go there and just listen it, you will not be dissapointed. For the music, imagine a collision between Annihilator and Pantera. Joe Newham seems to be a pretty good guitar player, the songs are filled with excellent riff works and some interesting themes, but honestly, this sounds more than a pretty good demo, rather than an album. But definitively there’s potential in it, if Joe will find the proper band mates, and especially a powerful, charismatic lead singer, this project might become the real thing. “Superimposed” for instance is a quite interesting experiment and it’s not the only one. Still, despite a few very good themes, the strong riffs and complex, technical constructions, the good groove and atmosphere, still, somehow this work seems not completely finished.
“Rapture V” have an extremely powerful atmosphere, some good breaks and excellent shifting of themes and tempos, Joe definitively have what it takes to go to the next level and I hope he will find the right people to bring this project further. This path of nu/groove metal merged with power/progressive metal and some experimental spices sounds just awesome, it definitively worth to explore it deeper.
For a bedroom recording this is a killer one anyway.
Just one more thing, there’s already at least one more “another” “Dot 3”, it’s quite annoying.
