(This is Vonlughlio’s review of the new second album by Ecliptic Vision, which was released on July 6th.)
This time around I have the opportunity to review the self-titled sophomore effort of Ecliptic Vision from Syracuse, New York. Prior to listening, I had no idea what the sound would be like, other than a description of the music as a mix of technical and brutal death metal, nor anything about the band, for that matter.
Now, the good thing about getting into this project with so little knowledge is that for me it was a pleasant surprise, to say the least. I won’t say the material is groundbreaking or something we haven’t heard before, but the musicians in the band are very talented, and the end result shows their skills and how well they work together.
