fantastic new album from this Seattle band that sounds like they came out of the depths of a Scandanavian forest!…Strongly reminiscent of Opeth but with a more aggressive, heavy sound along with ambient sections and even a wonderful full-on Baroque orchestral opener on “P.R.E.Y.” Easily one of the best albums this year!
Rhine is one of metal’s best kept secrets… but not for much longer.
Rhine play progressive heavy metal in the best sense of the word. With some progressive metal bands, there is often an over emphasis on the progressive over the heavy or vice-versa, but Rhine have got the balance just right.
An Outsider by Rhine has to be one of the most interesting and intriguing Metal albums that I have ever listened to. I have run through this album more times than the average album I review. The innovation and experimentation on this album is definitely what sets this album apart from any Most if not all Metal albums.
this is Seattle-based Rhine‘s sophomore release, and it’s pretty obvious that they had an absolute ball writing this, as it sounds like an interesting blend of Opeth, Between The Buried And Me, a touch of doom and more than a taste of symphonic metal.
This is an album that should be of great interest to fans of Opeth or Devin Townsend because of the quirky progressive nature or possibly even fans of Enslaved or Sadist as you will certainly feel the influence of these artists.
One thing is certain however, the first time you listen to ‘An Outsider’ it will be open mouthed in disbelief because it’s so utterly phenomenal and with every listen it just sounds even better.
I feel like we’ve discovered Dream Theater‘s long-lost cousin.
This death-prog outfit from Seattle, Washington takes inspiration from everywhere to write songs. What comes out is the beauty of Steve Wilson, the art of Pink Floyd, the jazz of The Yellowjackets, and the black metal of Immortal.
It’s psychedelic, it’s epic, it’s heavy, and it is full blast ballsy. Never in my life have I heard metal presented in such an amalgamated and boldly arranged fashion. Rich, lush, complex, and adroit, An Outsider is a masterful display of songwriting that harnesses idiosyncrasy with grace and aggression with integrity.
