Guest review by

Threshold is very well known in the progressive metal scene. They have a distinct sound, so you will not find another Dream Theater rip-off here. "Extinct Instinct" is their third album, and the second with Wilson on vocals. Musically this album is much more mature than "Psychedelicatessen". Yet, here you will find all the elements that made the two previous albums so good.

Rating: 9 This is probably Thresholds most unique album, at this point they hadn't really found their identity so you can hear a lot of different ideas and experimenting. It's a interesting listen from beginning to the end. Among their best albums.

Trying to make an impression on the world, like throwing rocks into the sea
