Some people say that Six Degrees Of Separation plays Doom Metal. Well, honestly the more I listen to this album, the less I believe them… There is nothing comparable to bands like Mourning Beloveth or Black Sabbath here, no Six Degrees Of Separation plays some kind of Dark Thrash / Death Metal and even if it's not really Doom (well maybe a bit sometime but that's not pure Doom) it's a good release and I'm sure that you'll like it.
"Chain-Driven Sunset" is a cool original album, really Six Degrees Of Separation is a surprising band. Their music is a nice mix of Neo Thrash (with strong riffs a la Gojira) with melodic Death Metal melodies and yes, sometime, some kind of mid-tempo songs which can remind you Doom Metal (but really fast Doom then)… It's dark in general but catchy with good riffs and strong catchy rhythms, "Chain-Driven Sunset" is a nice album of Dark Thrash with some great melodies and some songs like "Tekno-Prophet" or "Visionary" are real hits. Six Degrees Of Separation is a good band which plays a really original Metal and even if "Chain-Driven Sunset" is not a perfect album and maybe goes too many times in a dozen of directions (yes it can be weird to listen to a real Thrash song and something a bit more Heavy or even Doom on the next track) it's a correct and pleasant album.
I can tell you that the guys of Six Degrees Of Separation are good musicians and I really like the voice of Doctor who is probably not a great singer but who is able to give a lot of emotions when he sings/tells his lyrics. On the other hand the mixing of the album is a bit average and I find the music and the instruments a bit too loud sometime. It's not horrible though but that's a bit sad that Six Degrees Of Separation didn't find a way to have a perfect sound because they play a complex music which deserves it to be perfectly enjoyed.
Yes, even if it's a bit different of course, the new Six Degrees Of Separation will remind you the music of Gojira and that's not a bad thing don't you think? Maybe that the release is not perfect and too bad that the production is a bit average but still, Six Degrees Of Separation is a good and honest band and at least they know how to do original music. We're not in front of the album of the year but "Chain-Driven Sunset" so if you like dark Thrash Metal, have a look on this release and maybe that you'll find a new band which was created fo
