Existential Symmetry are a duo from Florida that plays an instrumental and progressive form of death metal and this is a review of their self titled and self released 2010 ep.
The ep starts out with some bass guitars and psychedelic sounds before adding in heavy and melodic sounding guitar riffs and drums along with some solos as well as a small amount of blast beats and synths and the music also adds in spoken word samples.
As the ep progresses it starts mixing in more brutal elements along with some Nintendo music which also add more strength to the progressive nature of the music and the music also adds in some powerful sounding bass guitars at times as well as some jazz influences and on the last song there is a brief use of acoustic guitars.
On these 5 songs that the band displays on this ep have a lot of variety to them, one minute the music will be very heavy sounding death metal one second, progressive guitar leads the next second and then the band goes into an avant garde jazz direction, with all of these musical styles mixed it makes it hard to put the band in a particular category.
Song themes cover Existentialism, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this ep as well as the last song being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Existential Symmetry are a very great sounding instrumental, progressive death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Imposed Nadir" and Teaching your Shadow to Be Still". 7/5 out of 10.
