No limitations must be this band´s motto when they write music, Quebec based The Prestige can be as heavy as a death metal band if they want to be but also very catchy with a contemporary sound. They´re standing with one foot in the post hardcore genre while the other takes a firm step in the melodic death metal scene of Gothenburg, a cool thing about their new album "Ecotone" are the singalong choruses in the best 30 Seconds To Mars style.
The riffs will cut through asphalt like a machete through the rainforest, except for the electronic oriented "The diamonds" where the band shows yet again that there are no limitations for how far they can go.
If you´re a fan of modern pop metal like Dead By April and think this album sounds like a tasty bit, don´t bother because The Prestige are way more aggressive and will make DBA look like Backstreet Boys.
