Album Review: Neorhythm – Terrastory (Self Released)

Russian metal duo Neorythym will is set to release it’s newest album, Terrastory, on March 20th 2020. Featuring 11 tracks of dark, progressive groove, Terrastory is a concept album with themes covering the 4.5 billion year history of planet Earth.

The band elaborates on the concepts behind Terrastory:

Terrastory is a conceptual album that reviews and describes the history of planet Earth from the origin of the star to the present day, the history and evolution of Mankind and Civilizations, and even tries to look into the Future. With our new songs, we penetrated the temporal space from the Archean Eon to Art Nouveau, explored various cultures and tried to convey not only lyrically, but also musically the development of our father’s home, from the protobacterial world to perfect technological progress. For History is a treasury of human deeds, a witness to the past, an example and a lesson for the present and a warning for the future.

Huge in scope, huge in imagination, huge in thought…Neorythym is an epic in more than one sense. Firstly, its concept is incredibly wide-ranging while also being condensed into 11 tracks. The history of planet Earth distilled through a thought-provoking metal lens. Secondly, there is the progressive side to the band that makes each track a tantalising experience. Never quite going in the direction one might expect but also not so wild and uncontrollable that it’s unbearable or unlistenable.

Of course, to convey such a wide and encompassing theme requires a deft touch and Neorythym have it. It’s incredibly detailed with an evolving style that fits each and every twist and turn. As Terrastory changes and grows, it reflects the directions humanity has gone through.

The feeling of hurtling through space, desperately clinging on as we drain this world of all its resources is delivered with composure. However, aside from all that Neorythym deliver a bombastic set of head-bangers that are filled with some serious gravitas while never coming across pretentious.
