Just heard the new SOPHICIDE (Germany)
Sophicide - Encyclopaedia Metallum: The Metal Archives release... really great tech-death, if itīs your kind of music, check it out
I ran into this thread (I think) a couple weeks ago. I must say that this whole album is just pure fucking great. I can't stop listening to it.
As kinda of a disclaimer, I've loved Arsis since Diamond came out and thought I would get mainly into tech death from then on, but I just can't get into any of the other bands in this genre at all. That is until now.
It seems a lot of riffs from Sophicide start off or can be seen/heard as generic, but after listening to one song, especially throughout the whole album, it just kind of goes all over the place with a mixture of lots of different kinds of elements.
I feel that a lot of tech death bands try to show off how technical they can get (which results in not much movement on stage). This band seems to focus on more stuff that just jams.
