Intervals – ‘A Voice Within’ [Review]

intervals a voice withinA note-one winner. Melodic tech-metal with elements of Periphery-influenced djent and (on opener Ephemeral) a fantastic Tom Morello stutter-guitar moment kept me set on staying put for this LP’s full running time. I do not regret that decision.

Intervals don’t just do metal better than an entire swathe of contemporaries; they also know how to fuse their influences into a tasteful and unique style. Bands as diverse as Killswitch Engage, Muse, Protest The Hero, Avenged Sevenfold, and Rage Against The Machine all get respectful nods – but inventive determination still reigns supreme on tracks like Moment Marauder (all tangential twists and turns and complex wide-interval guitar work) and the blissful pace and pop-gothic melodicism of Breathe. Dull moments? There are none.

Intervals’ forward-thinking vision and sheer unpredictability ensure a non-stop thrill ride that does the prog world proud. Applause, love, and respect – Intervals deserve it all, and much much more.
