Dodecahedron

Dodecahedron came out swinging with their self-titled 2012 debut. The closest comparison (and a clear influence) might be Deathspell Omega, as their brand of chaotic, dissonent extreme metal is found throughout the record. Five years later, the guys produced Kwintessens, and here that style remains in place, but the guys are even more out-there, with endless twisting riffs, harrowing shrieking vocals, and plenty of apocalyptic/dystopian vibes. The musicianship is top-notch, with the drumming getting a special nod for simply being all over the place and yet controlled at the same time. The band rarely comes up for air, and the songs tend to blur, but yet within each song are so many variations of the theme that boredom is not a issue, even if exhaustion might be.
