It seems as though there are more and more bands coming out with a similar vibe as Tesseract, Periphery where the music is very technical, vocals clean/unclean and overall heavy as fuck. Sometimes it is really hard to keep track of who is doing what in todays music industry. That is of course, until I heard Mexico City’s Excellion. While yes, Excellion is doing what most of the bands are doing, they are doing it exceptionally well. If you are looking for a quick listen to get you through a rough patch of your day check out Excellion‘s EP, Unsean.

Clocking in at just under a half hour, Excellion takes you through a little journey and while most of it isn’t quite original, the part that brings you in and keeps you listening is the impeccable clean vocals brought to you by Frozen Chava. With a mix of sounding unique and a bit like Coheed and Cambria‘s Claudio Sanchez, Chava’s vocals not only compliment bassist Adrian Vilbel’s screaming rather well, but it helps the band stand apart from the rest of the bands doing something similar. Throughout the album I notice a hint of atmospheric elements that, while they don’t necessarily belong in the song, they don’t detract from the sound they are going for either.

Overall if you are looking for a catchy, yet heavy album to start your day off right you will want to check out Excellion’s Unsean. As an independent release these guys are gonna be going places. Check out this album Spotify and these other locations:
