Every Monday we unearth three more underground metal bands that our readers may not have had the pleasure of hearing yet, and this week we’re looking another batch of acts that throw prog rock into the mix or otherwise break genre boundaries.
This is our third outing into the ever-changing waters of prog, and what’s interesting about this style is how many different sounds can be contained within the same overall genre title (even the term “prog” itself is somewhat contradictory – if a band falls into an easily identifiable genre label then is it really “progressive?”). For instance, compare Orphan Bloom’s over the top rock style from our last prog metal edition of Unearthing the Metal Underground with the mixture of soothing atmosphere and death metal mayhem found in Enochian Theory below. Both are “prog,” but both are vastly different in style and substance.
These three acts are a little less jazz and instrumental focused than the bands in our last prog lineup, and cover a wider range of ground, heading into power and symphonic territory as well.
U.S. act Ocean Architecture is a newer band on the scene, having just now finished and released online a first full-length album title “Animus.” Although the sound quality isn’t perfect (this is a debut from an unknown group after all), the album still has pretty much everything that a progressive metal fanatic craves: crazy electronic keyboard sounds, a strong prog rock feel, random gang shouts, and even some black/death metal bouts interspersed all throughout.
Topping it all off are some technical and showy bits, as well as interesting changes in tempo and vocal styles, such as the odd feeling of falling created during the “spiral downwards” section on the track “Plato’s Cave.” You can listen to the full “Animus” album through the Bandcamp player below.
Enochian Theory has issued the following announcement about streaming a new song online:
"You can now listen to 'This Aching Isolation' taken from the new album 'Life...And All It Entails,' released Monday March 12th. This track is exclusively on SoundCloud over this weekend so get on over there people and have yourself a listen...."
Enochian Theory has issued the following announcement about the "Life...And All It Entails" album being pushed back:
"'Life...And All It Entails' will be released on Monday 12th March 2012... Things have been put back a month due to things beyond our control, but this release date will not change anymore.
"For those of you who have already pre-ordered the new album, thank you very much for doing so. For those of you who have not pre-ordered yet, please do. The more albums we can sell 'Officially' to you lovely people the more touring we can do. The more places we can come to play for you all...
"In this hard industry, it all comes down to record sales. So we need your help... Please pre-order the new album from your local store, online, or wherever you can find it within your price range.
"Send emails and letters to your local venues asking them to book Enochian Theory and tell everyone you know about us. It really is down to you guys, as you're the ones who matter and can make the difference.
"Keep your eyes on our pages as there will be audio from the new album released online for you all to listen to very soon. More to come....." More...
Enochian Theory has checked in with the following announcement about the release of a new album:
"The new album titled 'LIFE...And All It Entails' has now been announced for release on Monday 13th February 2012. You can now pre-order the album at the Mascot Records online store here.
"13 months ago, the first demo was put down for this record...and now, 13 months later, it is nearing completion and we can share this you. Thank you for your patience and please share this news with everybody and anybody! More News & Music To Come...Keep Your Eyes On Us...." More...
Enochian Theory has issued the following announcement about entering the studio to record a new album:
"We have entered the studio to record our 2nd album following up from Evolution: Creatio Ex Nihilio. Things are going well and are all on schedule so far. Sam has recorded all the Drum work and Shaun has completed all his Bass duties. Work has now commenced on the guitars...
"The band is working with the fantastic and very knowledgeable Rob Aubrey for the recording and engineering of the record in the UK, with the mix being completed in Sweden by David Castillo again. Rob is well respected in the 'Prog' world having worked with many artists over the years including Translantic, IQ and Spock's Beard. David is still sharp from the last Katatonia album and ready to go as soon as we have finished all the recording work.
"Ben has been posting an updated Recording Diary in the official Forum and can be viewed at this location. The title of the new album is still undisclosed until further down the line with the release being planned for early 2012 on Mascot Records. More news to come...."

"It's been a great year for us by all stretches of the imagination. Getting settled into out new home with Mascot Records, visiting all the places we played like Ireland, Switzerland, Hungary, France, Germany, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia and more stretches around the U.K
