The Voice Of Nothing

     
         
         
         
             
             
Opensight are a four piece progressive metal band from the UK, citing such bands as Opeth and the Devin Townsend Project as major influences on their musical style.    
             
Their debut E.P. The Voice Of Nothing contains five songs of heavy aggressive metal blended superbly with melodic, acoustic and atmospheric moments. First song 'Only When' comes crunching at you before finding its feet with an almost Pantera-like rhythm, yet the song is broken up with some wonderfully crafted melodic arrangements.    
             
'Former Heroes' is a heavier, more brutal song that displays traits from the genres of thrash and traditional heavy metal. An acoustic melodic breakdown in the middle of the song confirms that this band is not afraid to experiment with different musical styles when writing songs.    
             
With its atmospheric intro and chugging guitar riffs, 'Deleted Scene' displays the talent and versatility this band has and its willingness to expand its sound into new areas.    
             
'Absolute Truth' is an up tempo song that will keep the head bangers happy. Very much a traditional heavy metal influenced song it is punctuated with a number of short acoustic moments.    
             
Final song 'Skeptic's Creed' is a wonderfully crafted song containing every style of music that this band is looking to achieve - melody, acoustics, time shifts and heavy metal.    
             
Overall, an amazing, near growl-like vocal display, crunching guitars and powerful drumming combined with acoustic moments makes this a very impressive debut.
