POMEGRANATE TIGER - All Input Is Error
Album : All Input Is Error
Genre: Instrumental Progmetal
Release Date: September 4th, 2023
Looking at the visual art of Canadian instrumental progmetal project POMEGRANATE TIGER, the attention to detail is immediately apparent, whether for the cover of their newest album “All Input Is Error” or the accompanying videos.
Telling the sci-fi story of a super advanced AI trying to convince the world’s brightest living philosopher to merge with itself in order to save civilization from collapse, the music picks up the concept seamlessly with a mix of mighty cyber metal shredding, highly complex rhythmic, and futuristic, electronic sounds.
The duo’s skills and playfulness are jaw dropping, taking us through 10 diverse and highly technical compositions with which they create a dark, dystopian atmosphere. While most of the album is heavy and pushing, they round off their work with some calmer yet not less intense pieces, making their input no error at all, but clearly one of this year’s highlights ffo sophisticated instrumental wizardry.
