I’m not a big music reviewer, I buy CDs occasionally, some are OK some aren’t. It’s been a while since I played one over and over as soon as I bought it. Only two in the last year or so – Leftism (Leftfield) and Otherworld (Sonic Attack). Alaska is Metal – bits sound straight Death Metal – but this one has prog overtones which gives it a unique twist. There’s haunting bits, tuneful bits, and all interspersing the usual Death Metal type vocals that sound great. There’s bits that echo Fripp, Pink Floyd and Latin music. Altogether indefinable (unless you want to start creating your own labels, like Pomo Prog Metal or something). I’ve had this a week and already couldn’t be without it.
