A rare and raw twisting of jazzy progressive and death metal fabrics. Not as blended as a smoothie, more like a salad of styles. What it lacks in polish, it makes up for in creativity. The vocalist sounds like Mike DiSalvo.
Favorite track: Mathematics of Emotion.
Calculations of the Ancients is the debut full-length album from Canadian death metal experimenters, Super Massive Black Holes. Blending Prog, Jazz-fusion, and other styles into melody-laden Death Metal, the intent was to connect many types of music together into a fused sound.
