Dynahead

Seemingly out of nowhere comes this Brazilian band with a rather enigmatic name. They've debuted with a self-released 2008 effort in Antigen, and it's really quite impressive, featuring a stellar production and crisp songwriting. The band can be loosely based in the progressive camp, though they are heavier than most in that genre. There are clear nods to the more recent Scandinavian scene, though melodic death metal this is not, as the progressive influences make this a far more diverse listen. The vocals are a wonder -- there are both clean and harsh styles, but not in the annoying harsh-verse-clean-chorus style that many modern singers employ, but rather a fine, clean singing style augmented by forceful growls at the right time. No one band or even genre comes to mind as a direct comparison, a testament to their originality and dedication to quality. This is modern, progressive-tinged heavy metal done right -- kudos to the band for an excellent debut album.
