THE FACELESS ARE ON THEIR WAY TO BECOMING PROG METAL GREATS
Last Saturday’s performance by The Faceless in New York City was special — it’s not often you get to see a band perform an entire album, let alone a NEW band perform an entire [relatively] NEW album. That The Faceless were bold enough to attempt it and able enough to execute it should speak volumes about the band. They’re total pros, even at such a young age, and they’re absolutely at the top of the proggy tech-death pack.
Here’s a video from the show that I found on YouTube of the band performing “Sons of Belial” and “Legion of the Serpent.” Having been shot from above in the back of the room, some of the energy seems absent… but down on the floor, even towards the back where I stood, there was an amazing feeling throughout the audience. The show was positively mesmerizing. And not for nothin’, Dying Fetus absolutely killed it before The Faceless; if not for their decidedly un-PC band name, I’m certain Fetus would be just as popular as Cannibal Corpse.
