Can you take a band named Destiny Potato seriously? The answer is both yes and no. Yes, because they make high-quality and unique prog metal and no, because they are in truth a pop band and their music is supposed to be fun, not life-changing. Check your pretensions at the entrance before stepping into the potato world, these guys know their prog metal and can perform the shit out of their instruments, but the vocal melodies are not much different from those few good hits on the radio.

At this point, what can be said by way of introduction to Animals as Leaders and Tosin Abasi that hasn’t already been said at least a hundred times before? If you think about it, though, it is somewhat remarkable that an instrumental outfit that plays such challenging, progressive music enjoys such a relatively high profile in the metal world. I think part of the reason for that high profile is how consistent this band has been from album to album; The Joy of Motion, their recently released third album, is another very solid outing from the group.
