All great albums. Chaos Divine - The Human Connection is up there as one of my favourite albums ever. Their other work doesnt appeal as much although Legacies was pretty good.

I would add Ne Obliviscaris - Portal of I (2012). As far as progressive extreme metal goes it is up there. Definitely has a unique sound - influenced by many diverse genres.

Off the top of my head I really like:

Sydonia - 'Given to Destroyers' (2012)
Breaking Orbit - The Time Traveller (2012)
Hashshashin - Badakhshan (2019)
Twelve Foot Ninja - Silent Machine (2012)
Osaka Punch - Voodoo Love Machine (2012)

Agreed with HC. I played it so much I wore out the CD haha.

Nothing they released afterwards came close to recapturing the magic of that record

Agree completely. Lyrically and instrumentally it had so much depth and i dont think they will or can replicate it. You can feel the massive amount of passion and energy put into it. Legacies was still a pretty good album in its own right i think but it doesnt come close to HC. The riffs are there and there are some great moments from all band members and some songs are great but it still doesnt come close in my opinion. In saying that, i was very happy with Legacies. It was Colliding Skies that i never got into, i thought that album was mainly filler. All together i think they are a great band and the HC holds a special place in my heart.

i guess i'm thinking circa 90's though some of the more recent bands do tickle me


more popular overseas than in australia




kind of defies description but horace himself tags it prog metal amongst other things and there is some opeth similarities. renaissance man. is probably chugging beer while browsing bigfooty, thinking of violin and piano melodies for songs.

Alchemist were a great band. Unique sound for sure. I wish i was old enough to see them when they were around.
