Now that sound is being pushed even further on their sophomore album “An Ancient Prophecy” as the band has expanded their musical approach. Essentially, The Paradoxical Spiral has a very technical, riff and groove oriented method to how they execute their music. This was especially apparent on their previous release. But now they’re expanding upon that sound into realms of atmosphere, melody, and heightened creativity. They’ve even incorporated new instruments into their sound. All in all, it serves as welcome artistic growth from the group.
After giving it a listen, it’s clear that “An Ancient Prophecy” will bring about good events for your ears. Tracks like “New Age Warfare” and “An Ancient Prophecy” will melt faces while others such as “Voids In Rapture” and “Sacred Artifacts” will take you on aural journeys. Beyond these, there are more stand out tracks to be found. There’s a good mix of varying content on the record. You never really know what’s going to happen next.
To sum things up, Michael Dunn did a really good job here. On some fronts, I’d say he did a phenomenal job. There is a lot of talent and potential in The Paradoxical Spiral. Looking forward to seeing their line-up completed (let them know if you think you’re up to it!) and listening to their music as they continue to grow as musicians.
