Formed in the year 2000 in Charleston, WV, Byzantine saw three albums released via Prosthetic Records before calling it a day in 2008. The since reformed quartet continue their power-prog meets groove metal onslaught with latest thrashsterpiece, the self-titled Byzantine.
It is immediately evident that the time away has not dampened their ability to create stunningly well-crafted songs. The nine tunes on the album cover all the bases you would expect from these guys – shred-heavy riffage, lush and melodic interludes, an interesting variety of time signatures and a wide range of vocal approaches. The musicianship is phenomenal, as with all of their previous work, and a crisp and lively production makes this record stand out. Highly recommended!
