This Sunday, Let There Be Metal with Mental Fracture’s “Inception”

Progressive metal with an old school feel, a ton of groove, and the coolest damn keyboards this side of Yes, Mental Fracture’ss latest single could draw comparison to everything from Rush to Dream Theater to The Beatles to System of a Down to The Doors… and I’m totally here for their unique blend of genres, instruments, and styles. Clean melodies with a bit of a metallic feel, the single opts to go lighter and less distorted than much of what you may consider metal these days, but it never forgoes the roots of progressive rock and progressive metal, bringing fury and musicianship from the first note through the last.

Here at The Farsighted, we like all types of music, but we certainly have a particularly affinity for music that’s loud and hard. But, since it’s Sunday and it’s supposed to be a day or rest and all, why not whet you metallic whistles today with a bit less distortion and a bit more melody and a well dressed quartet.

Check out “Inception” below and grab the full album, Disaccord, on Bandcamp today.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
