Note to all Progressive Metal bands: it isn’t necessary to pen long tracks with endless samples on them in order to impress people. In fact, it can end up leading to a complete, total train wreck. That’s what happens with Mechanical Organic’s latest release. Wait a second… can this really be considered a release? A question worth asking because there’s just one seventeen minute track here. Well, there’s also the radio-edit too, but including that almost seems to defeat the purpose of listening to the longer rendition.

“Into The Fangs of Lunacy” is the only song you’re gonna get. And it seems less like a song than it does an extra long sample backed by piercing guitars. The vocals are constantly shrouded by effects and are too low in the mix. The guitars are a consistent force, but not in a good way. They’re caught up in a never-ending solo that ends up being redundant. Occasionally, the music quiets down. When this happens, whoever’s running their mouth on the sample becomes even more apparent than before. It’s essentially a fanatic trying to rally people to his cause. After hearing him once, there’s no real reason to be interested in what he’s got to say.

For anyone trying to get a better grasp on this, imagine Evergrey’s “When the Walls Go Down”, but a lot longer and significantly less effective. It’s like they took the basic blueprint for that song, decided to overdo it on guitars, then throw lousy vocals into the mix, and to make it so long that it’d bore the living hell out of you. Obviously, the formula just doesn’t work. The radio-edit is tolerable, but in no way more exciting than the full-length. Even for diehard Progressive fans, there’s no need to check this one out. It’s little more than a sleeper and doesn’t merit more than a few spins.
