Karcius - The Fold (2018)


The fifth album from this band from Canada.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, mandolin, organ, piano, keyboards, synths, mellotron, loops and vocals.

This band went below my radar during their first three fusion albums before I caught up with them on their fourth album, the 2012 opus The First Day. I reviewed it ten years ago and quite liked it.

The band had by then changed genre and gone a bit more progressive metal. 

That is very much the case on The Fold.

There is also some neo-prog and some djent here with lots of growls.

Some of the music is really melodic with some pastoral melody lines.

The quality is not really impressive. There are some decent stuff here and some good stuff here. 

That is my gripe with this album.

2.5 points
