Mendel is instrumental progressive shred with a neoclassical structure from the Netherlands. At first listen “Subliminal Colors” grabs you by the balls, but in a good way, like an attractive female doctor. The album features endless high end ventures over dark channels of rhythm.
This is some serious free music. Each track is a magnificently structured mammoth of metal shred. Speedy drumming plows a trail for the axes to pierce through cleanly. Visually, Mendel is a souped up Viking war ship slicing through black ocean.
“Subliminal Colors” is a massive 73 minute vivid collage of technical progressive metal. Even featured is a 25 minute…song? I guess its technically considered a “song” although I’ve seen less music called an album. Again, its amazing that owning this masterpiece only costs megabytes. For fans of The Human Abstract, Francesco Artusato, and Intervals. Go pick dat up on Bandcamp!
