Taskaha’s sound is as often heavy as it is delicate. The band will take you through a journey of varied soundscapes unapologetically, without ever descending into gratuitous odd time signatures or technical showcasing that so frequently infest this genre of Metal. Borrowing from musical styles as diverse as Fusion Jazz, Blues Rock, and Classical, there’s something here for everyone to love.
There are plenty of straight rock-out moments with a touch of blues like in the first track “Mind Date” that never entirely abandon Prog territory but dare paint outside the lines, not unlike Dream Theater’s last collaboration with an outside producer in Falling Into Infinity. But there’s always very fragile moments, like in the 13-minute epic “The Climb,” and gloomy, Doom Metal inspired self-reflection in Daylight’s Fading. The band’s exploration of other styles runs deep, as showcased in “Eden” which delves into Art Rock with its Classical Music style arpeggios almost as if made for being played in a concert hall on a classical acoustic.
