The Metal Spotlight I just discovered Fountainhead recently through Obscura and I'm so glad i have. This EP really covers a lot of ground and does so in an extremely sophisticated way. Everything feels seamless, from super chill to tech explosion it all works beautifully. I really recommend picking this one up. Favorite track: I Do And I Will.

Christopher Musial Interesting stuff. Not particularly shreddy, just spacey/out there flights of fancy. Djent influenced rhythms with Vai-like melodies on top. This track especially has a grand, sweeping quality to it that is very appealing. Try! Favorite track: I Do And I Will.
