Tungsten - The Reservoir Review

back to reviews

Artist: Tungsten

Album: The Reservoir

Released: 2014

A mixture of styles and genres: Melodic Heavy Progressive Metal


Look, there's another band that may surprise you! Who knows about the new act Tungsten? Oh, do not worry, everything is played and replayed, and what newcomers are able to do? And they are able!
Music, represented on this debut album, is a melodic mix of Heavy and Progressive. And, believe, it is not Queensryche, Fates Warning or somebody else, it is much deeper. You know, I am confused to compare this band with somebody... Pink Floyd, Iron Maiden, Ayreon, Opeth, Erik Norlander, The Gathering?.. Besides, the female lead singer sounds very differently as if there are two lead singers: female and male.
The basis of Progressive album are keys, although you can't avoid Progressive-rhythm. The guitars are amazing, sometimes rough, sometimes atmospheric, but they are not trivial. Tunefulness is present not only in songs with Heavy-basis or on ballads tracks, even in complicated mix of Progressive music you can find plenty of harmony and excitement.
Music is a crafty thing, you never know in advance, what is hidden in its treasury, and Tungsten is the price that is won by chosen ones that are ready to listen to the new and unknown.
