Review: Scale The Summit – Carving Desert Canyons [2009]

amazon-scale-the-summitScale the Summit’s captivating alliance of guitar wizardry with adventurous musical compositions sounds like a cross between the forward-thinking The Fucking Champs and the cathartic charge of Pelican on their second effort CARVING DESERT CANYONS. This invigorating unit’s jostling eight-track excursion is an instrumental metal fan’s dream come true, as this technically proficient quartet put on a veritable musician’s clinic to disc (“Glacial Planet”) while skillfully investing the listener emotionally without assistance from any vocals (“City in the Sky”). Rousing and rocking, Scale the Summit lack of stuffiness is what helps them excel so well in getting their point across, as this band doesn’t just blow your face off with flurries of flawless runs and fills but writes heartfelt and hearty progressive rock jams bursting with the aforementioned for a multi-faceted assault not just restricted to the progressive sect. -Mike SOS
