Hex  


Hex is a Chicago-based duo who offer up their first album, Our Synthetic Soul. Soul is an intriguing and original take on progressive metal, with one occasional soundalike being later-period Psychotic Waltz, as Hex shares that band's slightly spacey, laidback atmosphere while still incorporating heavy guitarwork and a good deal of progressive tempos and riffs. The vocals are on the unmelodic side, which to some might seem incongruous or a negative point, but to these ears they lend a sense of aggression often lacking in the hordes of prog metal bands that employ higher-pitched melodic wailers. Soul isn't a perfect album, but it's an excellent first effort, and clearly worth a listen.
