The Great Wall

In an effort to cover all the great recordings that came out in 2014, I've separated out the EPs from the full length recordings. To define what albums are EPs, I look at the total length of the album and the amount of songs. If the album is under 30 minutes and contains less than seven songs, I call it an EP. For example, Reign in Blood by Slayer is under 30 minutes but there are 10 songs, so I would not call it an EP. But these are my random rules, so whatever, here is my list:

The Great Wall’s sound is more like Intronaut-meets-mathcore with a few electronic elements thrown in for good measure, but with vocals that are almost crooned. The end result is a heavily textured take on alt-metal that’s both proggy and accessible. On paper it might seem a bit incongruous, but in practice it’s pretty damn wonderful. It’s also not really like anything I’ve ever heard before, which is saying something.
