Listen to Scarlet Phantom

The Pitch: Rollicking, djenty progressive metal from Russia's Scarlet Phantom. FFO: Mendel, Modern Day Babylon, Second To Sun

What I Like: There's so much to like with this record. First of all, it's remarkably consistent. Honestly, there's not a bland song on the album. Every track had me tapping my foot to the joint-damaging, mathy time signatures. The riffs are so meaty that I scarcely noticed the lack of vocals. An instrumental album lives and dies by it hooks, and Singleness lives life to its fullest. The guitars, drums, and bass all do their part above and beyond to prove that Scarlet Phantom are a tightly wound, well-oiled machine.

Critiques: I have very little negative to say about this album, but much like others in the genre it largely sticks to the usual script. Don't expect much in the way of surprises.

The Verdict: Singleness is, despite its familiar content, a highly enjoyable and consistent album that will have you banging your head and begging for more. Scarlet Phantom are a band to watch moving forward.
