Quite simply, Wilderun is a revelation. Their style, by description, isn't terribly unique, with "progressive death metal" being the starting point with a healthy folk influence and plenty of symphonic bombast, but this Massachusetts-based outfit outclasses the field. The songs are epic in both length and breadth but never feel over-indulgent, the soaring clean vocals are majestic with the harsh death vocals deftly interspersed provide a nice counterbalance of styles, and the musicianship and production are flawless. Soundalikes? Several seem to point to a cross between Opeth and Turisas, Ne Obliviscaris could be considered a kindred spirit and these ears even occasionally detect a hint of the once-mighty Bal-Sagoth, though taken to a different level. 2015's Sleep At The Edge Of The Earth (their second album) started the buzz, but the two followups in Veil Of Imagination and Epigone (the latter finally on a label after their first three efforts were independent) have kicked everything up a notch. Simply essential progressive metal listening.
