Dances of Death (And Other Walking Shadows) Reviews

Reviewer :    (70/100)
Date : 
Thrash Metal 와 결합된 형태의 아주 건조하고 테크니컬한 Progressive Metal 음악을 들을 수 있는 앨범으로, Mekong Delta의 통산 네 번째 작품 Dances Of Death 이다. 궁극적인 프로그레시브 미학을 담고 있다고 평가되는 컬렉터 아이템으로 근래에 새로이 믹싱, 마스터링하여 재발매되었다. 19여분의 대곡인 타이틀곡 등에서 이들의 신념과 그 깊이를 짐작 할 수 있다. Dream Theater 류의 음악에 익숙해져 있는 분이 이 음반을 처음 들으면 황당해 할 것 같은데, 꾸준한 반복청취로 질긴 고기의 맛을 느껴볼 수 있을 것이다.
