When I first gave the Digital Resistance album a chance, I didn't know what to think. It had this weird Jethro Tull/Queen/Rush vibe...but with a harder Metal edge. What the fuck was this? It didn't fit into my mold of what Metal should sound like, and I wasn't sure that I really liked it...but it was intriguing enough to make me want to check it out again.
As it was slightly odd and different, it took me a while to get my head around the songs on this album. Now that I'm digging it, I'm really loving this. I can't think of another Metal band that has this sound. Refreshing.
Apparently the band have been around since the mid-90's, at times going under the name The Lord Weird Slough Feg, and Digital Resistance is their ninth studio album, but this is the only album of theirs that I'm familiar with. I can tell that I'm going to have to check out some of their earlier material soon.
