False Coda’s trademarks are heavy, harmonically inventive chords, knockout jazz fusion-inspired guitar lines, inventive rhythms and, in what maybe sets this band apart from other progressive style bands, some pretty goddamn great melodic hooks. CLOSER TO THE EDGE’s got its own musical identity and is the result of the progressive evolution that Dream Theater Psychotic Waltz and Fates Warning have been undertaken since over two decades and ever after.
Let’s take a closer look at the album’s content and context. The album is very well thought out – with just the right mixture of heaviness and lightness. Clean vocals and heavy guitar riffs and melodic tunes everywhere. The middle of the album has a large portion of powerful “near power metal” touches. There are also quiet reflective moments throughout the entire album that might be kind of risky in less skilled hands but to me are the perfect offset to the heavier and more intense parts. I have to say that I do like very much the Deep Purple-laden parts in keyboards “Room of Panic” and the great “Paranoid’s” riff in “Blood On Eyes”.
