Instrumental Progressive Metal is one of the sub-sub-genres that's restricted to a small niche only, largely because for most bands they place a lot of emphasis on musicianship while the song writing is seldom ground breaking. Most of the time, it just sounds like some lengthy jam session with plenty of technicality and that's about it. Obviously, there's no vocals which makes the music lacking in the timbre department. Scale The Summit also play instrumental prog, but their latest album The Collective certainly differentiates them from the average instrumental wankery bands.

Same old, same old.

I disagree. This album has a different style than the ones before it. Its much more somber in tone, I'd say, while the others have been pretty upbeat.

Rating: 7 This album is different from CDC, seems more interesting (and metal-leaning) with some good ideas and less repetition. I like it better actually, more worthwhile after a few listens.

Yeah, that was after my first listen. I do admit that it was a hasty thing to say, as there are different elements at play here, and it's a little more somber like you said. Still doesn't change my rating though. Was not that impressed with this one.

It's still a very repetitive album. After a couple listens it had to be shut off.

Yeah, I enjoyed it the first few times, but it doesn't really have any lasting replay value for me.
