Excellion – Unsean

Excellion - Unsean

Exotic riffs, anthemic songwriting, and progressive touches here and there comprise what Excellion’s sound is about. The showcase to the music always remains the voice of singer here. Atop prog-djentic riffs and fairly formulaic (albeit effective) musicianship, the vocalist (listed here as Frozen Chava) defines the band and their modern sound. The songwriting of Unsean relies mostly on keen melodies and guitar grooves, but the showcase is generally on their vocalist, who is easily the strongest aspect of this group’s performance.

To space out the generally strong songwriting are often stylistic changes, or addition of different elements, to be precise. This adds a sort of cohesion to the music. The two real strengths to Excellion however do really stand out in their music. The first of these is that it does really feel as if Excellion is taking steps with their music that crown them as innovators. Even more importantly is the production and performance on the album. All members of the band are evidently fairly good with their respective instruments, but what is more important is that the music doesn’t lack any organic texture to it. This is especially evident in the rhythm guitar, but the lead guitar solos do get some flair going for them.

Excellion has made a good EP here. The band’s strongest suit is certainly their songwriting, so a fantastic release could be in the future for them.
