Are you like Nicholas Sr., or me? Have you overloaded on the delicious meaty low-ends of djent and death metal? Do your ears now register dropped bass as television static? Well then do I have the band for you!
Sydney's Breaking Orbit are a refreshing take on Australia's particular brand of prog rock, not unlike The Butterfly Effect, Dead Letter Circus, or Karnivool. The big difference is that Breaking Orbit employ a much less pronounced low-end in favor of more eclectic instrumentation-- in that respect, if anything, they're much more early dredg, or even Kaura, the masters of sounding like Tool while also using a dulcimer and Asian bells and shit. Opening with a nine-minute song and closing with a seven, The Time Traveller is rife with big sprawling songs, extended percussion solos, engaging guitar work and soaring vocals. If you're down, get some.
