Platitude  


As evidenced on Nine (the second of three albums thus far), Platitude is squarely in the melodic progressive metal camp, going for a more relaxed style than some prog bands that tend to flaunt their musicianship a bit too much. Everything here is in place, though really there's nothing extraordinarly unique about this album. As Scandinavian prog bands go, Platitude are one of the better ones, though they could stand to branch out a bit on future releases.
