Make no mistake, the sum total of Alpha Galates' quasi-debut album is quite heavy and crushing and note-dense beyond belief. All of that barely begins to describe the wide-angled hard rock complexity - as well as the surging, roiling intensity - one experiences as some of these Herculean tracks build toward fraught fruition. An immediate influence that comes to mind is Tool, but then it’s not hard to start feeling the progressive death metal of Opeth deep within the record’s dark, lush landscapes, as well as a certain Roger Waters solo vibe, perhaps Porcupine Tree, even, on occasion the blistering riffing of Megadeth.
