Noēsis - 2016 - The Current

Noēsis is a progressive metal band from Québec City, Québec, Canada. The Current is their debut LP. Noēsis play prog rock citing Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, Mastodon & System Of A Down as influences. The singer has great pipes that would equally be at home in a traditional power or speed metal band while the backup vocalists, both clean and growling, interplaying nicely. Instrumentally Noēsis switch from more straight forward, hard rocking modern heavy metal to the melodic, solo focused prog-rock elements.

If you are into thrash, progressive or old school metal you will find something here to dig your teeth into. Highlights include The Fall of Barca, Intoxicated & The Prey. If you're looking for some progressive but still thrashy metal Noēsis' The Current will serve well.
