Alarum  


Hailing from Australia, Alarum has released a gem of an album in Fluid Motion, an intense progressive/thrash/fusion mixture that invites inevitable (and favorable) comparisons to bands such as Cynic and Atheist. Alarum is less death metal based than these two, as the vocals here are more often clean (though some harsher vocals are heard as well), but their riffs are equally twisted and complex, and there is a great deal of different shades and moods on display. There are occasions when the riffing is just a tad too complex, overshadowing the songs themselves, but this is a minor complaint. An excellent production, particularly impressive given this is a self-released album, rounds out the package. There is immense talent here, hopefully Fluid Motion is only the beginning of a stellar career.

A second album, Eventuality ..., was released in 2004.
