Degree Absolute  


Degree Absolute was formed by Aaron Bell, originally as a solo project (he recorded an initial demo by himself, before recruiting a proper band). Both he and drummer Doug Beary are part of the prog metal band Defyance, and while both that band and this one specialize in progressive metal, the similarities end there, as Degree Absolute (the 2006 self-titled debut) is a bit more exploratory, ranging from a heavier, prog/thrash approach (Exist) to a tech-metal approach (the instrumental “Pi”) to the odd but cool industrial tinge of “HalfManHalfBiscuit”. Really, over the course of ten songs there is quite a diversity of prog metal styles, refreshing in an age where many bands lock onto a single all-encompassing sound that never deviates from one song to the next. This is one of the best prog metal albums released this year, and a surefire recommendation for prog fans.
