Shardborne - Aeonian Sequence

Artwork and Layout by Ken Coleman

I read about Shardborne in a short review from the now defunct The Number of the Blog. Aeonian Sequence combines djent style progressive metal with competent fusion playing. All without the sterile production so typical of djent albums.

  1. This is actually eminently tolerable . . . surprising. Between the sample I've listened to and the review, I'm still not that interested in it. But they could be onto something if they added a decent vocalist (i.e., a vocalist that sounds like the exact opposite of Periphery's).

  2. "eminently tolerable" - I like that ;)

    I come from a background of listening to hard jazz fusion, stuff like early Brecker Brothers, so I don't miss the vocals much.

    Check out the insane soloing here, it makes Shardborne looks positively demure.
