Descriptions du produit

The third full-length album from THE FACELESS is easily one of the most anticipated albums of the decade for the extreme progressive metal genre. This is the band s first release in over four years and for all intents and purposes it s going to be well worth the wait. This effort sees the group s leader, Michael Keene (guitars), enlist a new vocalist, bassist and additional guitarist to help him see his musical vision come to fruition and these new members have delivered tenfold. The new album, Autotheism, is a semi-conceptual record following a man s journey of self-discovery and transformation into the all-powerful God of his reality. It starts with his realization of the power he possesses and moves through every step of an ever-evolving reality that the future may have in store. Musically, Autotheism is expansive in all directions. It is a thought provoking roller coaster with the occasional sledge hammer to the skull and contains more dynamics and diversity than any offering presented by THE FACELESS to date. Look for THE FACELESS to tour the world extensively for this album cycle and prove that they are truly a band that can redefine a genre as their musical vision adheres to no boundaries. This is forward thinking music that is beyond the scope of anything currently out there.

HASH(0x8ce03aec) étoiles sur 5 Its not planetary duality but its NOT bad either. 26 août 2012

Format: CD Achat vérifié
The faceless definitely went on an artistic limb in the making of aototheism if you compare it to their older material, so with that your either going to have people that hate it because it's not the same as their last album and then their will be those who love it and listen to it with an un biased ear and an honest opinion of how musically appealing it really is while appreciating their growth as songwriters. Autotheism has added alot of softer vocals with more melodic breakdowns and segues while still delivering heavy technically executed death metal like we know them for. i'd wrap it up by saying autotheism obviously will not be for everyone but for me personally i was skeptical at first but after a few listens and reading the lyrics this new album is really growing on me and i find myself craving it more and more.

HASH(0x8ce0d354) étoiles sur 5 Amazing Album 15 août 2012
Par PhilipKane - Publié sur Amazon.com

The faceless have returned with a worthy follow up to Planetary Duality. I dig technical death metal and I also dig jazz, so Autotheism impressed the hell out of me. Autotheism has sick riffs, tasteful solos, brutal drumming and alot of depth. What is different about this album from their last is the vocals. Clean vocals with melody are now in The Faceless writing formula. The death metal vocals are still there, but there are just as much clean vocals. I usually shy away from "short hair metal" or deathcore because of the whining clean vocals mixed with death metal vocals. Yet, bands like Opeth or Voyager have powerful clean singing that doesnt rub me the wrong way at all. So which category does Autotheism fall in? Im pleased to say the vocals are done well and are metal. Michael's voice is not as refined as Mikael Akerfeldt, but very similar. The music is alot more progressive and includes alot of keyboards and even some saxaphone which give the sound more atmosphere and melody. Drums are top notch and bass playing as well. I recommend this album to anyone who loves Blotted Science, Obscura, Opeth, Necrophagist, Ihsahn or any type of music that is complex and challenging to create. If you strictly enjoy technical death metal and cant get into the clean vocals, perhaps Autotheism is not for you. Planetary Duality is still my favorite The Faceless album, but I am very pleased with everything that went into creating this bad ass album and will be bumpin it constantly. Cheers.

HASH(0x93afbb64) étoiles sur 5 With all the controversy, The Faceless release their strongest album to date 17 octobre 2012
Par Pete - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
If you're a fan of modern extreme music, chances are you heard of The Faceless. Their albums Akeldama and Planetary Duality have been both released to acclaim, despite wrongfully lumped in with the deathcore trend at the time. Since then, however, the band have gone through several member changes. Along with guitarist and main man Michael Keene (who is the only remaining original member), and drummer Lyle Cooper, the group was joined by bass virtuoso Evan Brewer (known for his work in Animosity and his pure bass solo project), guitarist Wes Hauch, and vocalist Geoffrey Ficco. Is the album a strong comeback, or does the four-year gap kill the hype? Read on to find out.

Autotheism is the group's first album since 2008's PD. The style in this album continues the progression that they've put out since their debut. Akeldama was more breakdown oriented than the future releases, and PD stripped away most of them for a much more technical, Necrophagist-esque approach. This album, however, strips away the breakdowns entirely, adds more melody, and incorporates a much bigger emphasis on Keene's clean vocals. This might alienate fans of the first two albums, but for fans of progressive metal (myself included), you will be in for a real treat.

Highlights:
Starting off the album is the Autotheist trilogy, broken up into three movements. The lyrics explore the concept of self-deification. "Movement I: Create" opens with an ominous orchestra coupled with pounding drums. Keene's vocals are clearly influenced by Opeth and Devin Townsend. They have had mixed reactions from fans, but I personally love his voice. "Movement II: Emancipate" turns up everything tenfold. Opening with blasting technical riffs in traditional Faceless fashion, it doesn't let up until it ends. Again, the influence by Opeth and Townsend are evident in the riffs and clean vocals. "Movement III: Deconsecrate" only adds to the quality. Starting with Mr. Bungle-esque sound effects followed by ominous singing from Keene, the song also features a saxophone (!) solo by Sergio Flores, who is known from the internet as Sexy Sax Man. The song trilogy is by far the greatest thing The Faceless have put out, and alone is worth the price of the album.

The album takes a mild nosedive with the follow tracks "Accelerated Evolution" and "The Eidolon Reality." Both tracks are more what you would expect with The Faceless: fast, technical, and brutal. Definitely not bad songs, but not quite up to the standard set by the opening suite.

It does pick up again with "Ten Billion Years," which combined the progression of "Autotheist" with the style of the first two albums. "Hail Science" is an interlude with a robotic voice that serves only as a segue to "Hymn of Sanity," a brief songs comparable to "Prison Born" from PD. The closer "In Solitude" contains massive Opeth influence with an acoustic opening, and maintains momentum until the outro.

The verdict? Autotheism is an excellent album, one of 2012's best releases. I enjoyed Akeldama and Planetary Duality, but I feel this is far and away the best album they have released to date. And if this is an indication of their future releases, I wholeheartedly await them with open arms.

Technical death metal purists might not enjoy this release. Otherwise, recommended for fans of tech-death, extreme music with melody, and/or even modern progressive metal.

Rating: 9.25/10

HASH(0x8ce0f558) étoiles sur 5 Sweet, merciful crap!! 28 juin 2013
Par A. Stutheit - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Four unexpectedly long years after releasing their sophomore outing in 2008's "Planetary Duality," Californian progressive death metal masters The Faceless return with a long-overdue junior effort in 2012's "Autotheism." This album flexes the band's progressive muscle even more than what was heard from them previously, and as anybody who has heard the group's prior two full-lengths would attest, that is REALLY saying something!

"Autotheism" is both familiar and experimental. It weaves in just the right amount of new-ish-sounding elements to make it a substantial creative and musical step forward for the band, while simultaneously being brutal and intense enough to satisfy old-school fans. The main experimental aspect of this album is that it is proof of the fact that Cattle Decapitation were not the only extreme metal-outfit to flirt with clean vocals in 2012. (Yes, you read that correctly -- there are several spots of clean singing heard throughout this forty-one minute playing time!) And plus, with the first three songs forming a trilogy of sorts (they all begin with the word "Autotheist"), and noteworthy lyrics (which are, in a large part, having to do with God and religion) present, this appears to be a concept album.

But don't get your knickers in a twist just yet, because despite these experimental touches, The Faceless still prove themselves to be masters of technical thrash riffing, triggered gravity blasts, brutal, Dying Fetus-ish vocals, and extremely melodic and crystalline-sounding solos that are nothing if not derived straight out of the progressive music playbook. (Think Necrophagist, Dream Theater, Journey, In Flames, and Iron Maiden, and you'll get the general gist as to what the solos sound like.)

The album begins on a calm note, with "Autotheist Movement 1: Create" being an ominous symphonic music intro piece accompanied by vocals that trade-off between clean singing and brutal death metal growls. It all makes for a very chilling and portentous opener, even if it is not an overly-exciting one. (Indeed, all things considered, "Create" is kind of boring, thus making it kind of surprising and curious that The Faceless would make it the album's very first song.) But what this track is lacking in energy, the succeeding "Emancipate" makes up for ten fold. It is one frenetic number, let me tells ya!, and is driven mainly by blistering, staccato riffing and jackhammer-fast percussion battery. It does weave in some nicely melodic vocals, and also dabbles with exotically jazzy guitar leads and solos; but for the most part, this is a brutal beast of a song. And this is evidenced by a positively airtight guitar-drum interplay throughout its epic, nearly seven-and-a-half minute-long playing time.

Later on, "Deconsecrate" (and much later, "In Solitude") both begin sounding not unlike an Opeth ballad, the former with accomplished clean vocals and the latter with a proggy, strings `n' all arrangement. But around the ninety second mark, both pieces morph into thunderous riffs and hyperspeed blast-laden chaos. "Accelerated Evolution" sounds overall quite similar, too, in that it is mainly centered around pummeling grindcore hyperblasts and Nile-esque riff chunks, but it is offset by some decent clean backing vocals. And "The Eidolon Reality" continues down this same road, with near Avenged Sevenfold-worthy crooning and soaring melodic leads making the track feel like an epic one, even if it is less than four minutes in length.

The final three songs that round out the album are all noteworthy, too. "Ten Billion Years" is a standout for being a completely mid-tempo venture with tasty guitar melodies, relatively slow and/or restrained riffs, and more Opeth-ian clean singing. Then comes "Hail Science," a terrifically trippy interlude that finds Steven Hawking's voice (or, at the very least, a spot-on impersonator) spouting noteworthy lyrics. And back on bludgeoning territory, "Hymn Of Sanity" is an extremely concise and compact, ninety-second-or-so long blast of more furious riffing and double bass drumming.

While the energy coursing throughout "Autotheism" is a little bit more on the live and organic side of the line (especially when compared to "Planetary Duality"), the band's instrumental-interplay in this album is still a little too tight to be believable. With that having been said, though, let it be known that The Faceless mostly bring the goods for "Autotheism." It is one that is experimental, viscerally satisfying, engaging, exciting, unpredictable, and bah-roo-tal record -- and what's not to like about any of that?!

HASH(0x8ce038b8) étoiles sur 5 Simply Beyond Amazing 20 novembre 2013
Par Jeremy Brackeen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
The Faceless are simply put one of the best modern progressive technical death metal bands out there today, even despite being wrongfully lumped in with the whole deathcore trend at the time when their 2006 debut release "Akeldama" and their 2008 sophomore release "Planetary Duality" were both released to critical and positive acclaim. Now fast forward to 2012, The Faceless have finally returned after four long years to release their long awaited third album entitled "Autotheism" and it is simply amazing in all aspects. The concept here on "Autotheism" thematically is about an individual's discovery that he is his own god. Another thing I'd like to point out that this album also marks a change in the band's lineup as well. Gone are vocalist Derek Rydquist, rhythm guitarist Steve Jones, and bassist Brandon Griffin, and in are vocalist Geoffery Ficco, rhythm guitarist Wes Hauch, and bassist Evan Brewer as they all join lead guitarist Michael Keene (the band's sole original member) and drummer Lyle Cooper (who played drums on 2008's "Planetary Duality").

Musically, "Autotheism" continues the progression that The Faceless have put out since their debut. While "Akeldama" was a more breakdown oriented album, their second album "Planetary Duality" would strip away most of them for a much more technical death metal approach. However here on "Autotheism" the band have stripped away the breakdowns entirely, and they have added more melody including the improvement of Keene's clean vocals which are clearly influenced by Devin Townsend and Opeth's Mikael Akerfeldt. Personally I really like Keene's clean vocals on here, and he along with Geoffery Ficco (who does the death vocals) both do an amazing job at contributing each others vocal styles throughout this album. The guitar work on here is incredible as always as both Keene and Wes Hauch thrash out vicious, blasting technical riffs and Keene's leads and solos are extremely melodic and flat out incredible and perfectly executed throughout this album. Elsewhere bassist Evan Brewer showcases his awesome bass playing skills, meanwhile Lyle Cooper shows his amazing talent behind the kit as he triggers perfectly executed gravity filled blast beats and slaughtering machine gun-like double bass kicking, and of course Geoffery Ficco does an excellent job at powering his way throughout with his savage, blistering death growls that will annihilate the listener's ears and everything else in it's path.

Kicking off "Autotheism" is the "Autotheist Movement" trilogy which of course is divided into three parts, and it is also the album's definitive highlight as well. The trilogy's first part "Create" begins with an ominous orchestral opening which is soon accompanied by a vocal trade-off between Keene's clean singing and Ficco's brutal death growls which makes for indeed a very chilling and atmospheric first part of the trilogy and it all leads right into part two "Emancipate" which immediately opens up tenfold with firing, blasting riffs, menacing death growls, and machine gun-like double bass slamming that just rip your head right off. Later around the 2 minute mark, some Townsend inspired clean vocals kick in accompanied by blast beats, and then later at 2:47 some Opeth-esque cleans come into play backed up by more blasting beats. Then later around 3:39 we have some catchy, infectious melodic lead sweeping accompanied by more battering machine gun-like double bass which are soon followed by an awesome melodic solo, and later around 5:13 some fiery sweep picking kicks in and soon followed by more Opeth influenced clean singing, and near the end we have a perfectly executed melodic sweep induced guitar solo. Part three "Deconsecrate" begins with an ominous organ accompanied by some clean lead guitar notes and Townsend influenced clean vocals, and then around 1:28 the heaviness kicks in with more battering riffs and double bass drumming plus some more death growls. Later on around 3:33, we're treated by an awesomely jazzy, spacey and atmospheric saxophone solo contributed by YouTube sensation Sergio Flores aka "The Sexy Sax Man", and later around 4:17 we're treated with yet another amazing Keene guitar solo that starts out very jazzy, spacey, and melodic and later on picks up with more sweeping. This song trilogy is without question, the greatest thing The Faceless have put out by far, and definitely worth the price of this album.

The album's following tracks "Accelerated Evolution" and "The Eidolon Reality" are both what you would expect from The Faceless: brutal, fast, and technical. Both are fantastic tracks especially "The Eidolon Reality" which anchors more ferocious growling, fiery technical riffs and leads, battering double bass percussion work, plus more epic clean singing and another awesome guitar solo near the end. Track six "Ten Billion Years" is another highlight on here that features more great Opeth-like clean singing from Keene, plus slow yet powerful restrained riffs and another great tasty melodic solo as well. Next up, we have "Hail Science" which is a short interlude track that features a cool robotic sounding voice which segues right into "Hymn of Sanity" which is a 1 minute, 34 second blaster that anchors more blasting drums and firing riffs, and the album's final track "In Solitude" which showcases a very strong Opeth influence especially during the acoustic guitar opening which also includes some clean vocals as well. After the intro, the song gains heavy momentum which continues on throughout until near the end of the song.

In conclusion, "Autotheism" is an absolutely amazing album from start to finish, and is also one of 2012's best metal albums as well. While I do love both "Akeldama" and "Planetary Duality" , but however I find "Autotheism" to be the best and strongest album that The Faceless have released to date by far. Now I know that a lot of technical death metal purists probably won't enjoy this album and that's all fine with me, but otherwise if you're a fan of technical death, progressive metal, and/or extreme metal music with touches of melody, you'll definitely love "Autotheism" since that it does contain a lot of melody and progressive influences yet while maintaining that technical death edge...Strongly Recommended!!!
