ALL TOO HUMAN - JUGGERNAUT
Metal To Infinity
Too Human is a band from out of Texas/USA. I suppose itís no secret that lots
of first class American Metal bands are from that specific area. Just like the
coldness is inspiring the best Black Metal bands in the North of Europe I
suppose the sun has some special influence on the musicians in this part of the
we notice mister Gordon Tittsworth in this band. This vocalist is pretty busy
nowadays and we know him from Images Of Eden and Dread The Forsaken. From this
latest band you can find a review on our website too. We already know this man
contains a good clear voice and Progressive Metal is really his thing. In the
Dread The Forsaken review I wrote I heard Gordon Tittsworth better before and
hereís the proof I was right! On this record this man really impresses me. His
vocal sound is ideal for this kind of music and he lifts the band up to a higher
level. Well, a higher level might be a bad description because the listener is
really spoiled on this album. On this record you will hear first class
Progressive Power Metal from the beginning until the end.
of old Dream Theater and Fates Warning (of course), Arch/Mattheos, Non Fiction,
Auditory Imagery (why canít they re-unite?) but also the softer Progressive
bands like Rush (what a new album!) will for sure like this one. This kind of
progressive Metal is all the way melodic and yet not always that easy to adept.
The guitars are without any doubts extraordinary and Clint Wilson seems to be a
very talented musician, he knows perfectly how to pull the strings! I really
adore this kind of guitar players, the kind that makes something complicated
sound so easy, so beautiful and all the way so overhwelming! That's what we call
talent, natural talent as only the best guitarist contains! He knows perfectly
how to mix power, sensity and his overdose off skills!
band obliges the listener to keep on spinning this disc, the more the better! I
donít dare to make any predictions anymore but in my opinion this band should
grow fast and strong in this specific genre. All Too Human has the perfect
songs, the musicians and the front man for it! This album was produced by Eric
Zimmermann (Fates Warning, Deftones, Suicidal Tendencies, Images of Eden,Ö).
If a band is able to let a Grammy-nominated producer to master their album
theyíre either very rich or either very convincing. I donít know if All Too
Human is rich but convincing they are!
is the third effort of the band and I suppose I must google again so I can add
this one to my collection although it seems only mp3-formats are available. This
superb Progressive Metal with outstanding vocals, great guitars and keyboards
and fantastic arrangements really deserves a place in my personal CD-rack. I
would pity (read: be pissed off) the fact if this one can't be found on an
official silver disc. Outstanding release you will find more about at http://www.alltoohuman.net.
