The Faceless plays super-technical, super-fast death metal with industrial tinges and a vicious progressive streak. The members of The Faceless are all accomplished players for their young ages. Planetary Duality is prog in the same sense as Dream Theater but it’s undeniably death-fucking-metal. I can’t think of an album that has combined the two this well since Focus by Cynic.
The keyboardist is also the back-up robo-vocalist. Beyond that, I’m not sure what he does in the band, and I’ve seen them live twice. Anyway, there’s a keyboard on Planetary Duality somewhere (allegedly).
Speaking of live, The Faceless wrote an entertaining blog during the band’s recent tour with Meshuggah and Cynic. Check it out.
