If progressive metal is your thing then the new release from Caricature, The Sound Of One Man’s World Collapsing, is going to be right up your alley. This is a dense, unpredictable record with lots of intricate nuances. I was not really sure what to make of it the first time through, and to be honest wasn’t even sure I liked it all that much, but after a second listen I began to really appreciate what these guys have done.

The songs themselves are multi-layered and require a bit of time to absorb, at least for me, but once you get into them they become enjoyable and infectious. Despite all the busyness though, at the core of the record is some serious down-tuned, percussive metal. A good example of which can be found in the tune, “Burning Damnation Down.” I am real sucker for this type of thing especially when done right… as it is here. Bottom line, this is a record that is well worth hearing.
