Ora Nombro

Ora Nombro - Between Man and Machine (Independent)

I understand that a lot of people like prog metal, or at least the idea of prog metal. But at least two thirds of them are quick to follow that up with "but not that soulless wanky Dream Theater crap where they can play really well but can't write songs". And despite that being an inaccurate assessment of the band, I can understand why so many people hate them and everything they stand for. With that in mind, how shit would an album which is just "everything they stand for" be?

That's what we've got here - and the answer is "unlistenably shit".
