Exivious  


Blending jazz/fusion with metal is not unheard of, but it isn't done frequently, and often the jazz influences are fleeting at best. Not so with the Dutch band Exivious, a group whose self-description of "fusion metal" is spot on. Featuring two members from the present-day Cynic lineup, this bands's self-titled, self-released 2009 effort is a jazz/metal lover's paradise. This truly is equal parts metal and jazz, with several of the numbers featuring free-form-sounding solos and fills typical of the fusion scene. No vocals here at all, another nod to their jazz side, and really vocals would not have made sense on an album like this. A must for the tech/prog/fusion metal fan. Unfortunately outside commitments from the band members prevented the group from carrying on, as they announced their breakup in May 2010.
