Hailing from Port Elizabeth, South Africa, Mezzanine Floor are a progressive metal project with hard rock influences. The band’s sophisticated arrangements and great musicianship come through in their recent work, Architecture of Aeons.
This album is chockfull of songs that are all about building intricate layers and textures, as the instruments within the mix blend in with the rhythm section to create stunning melodic patterns and powerful walls of sound that are at the core of the project’s vision. The progressive contamination element is a big part of the meal ticket, and songs such as “Behold! The Temple of Light” or “Trading Gallows For The Sun” do a great job conveying the spirt of the band into a new, personal musicality. There is a spark within every single song, a blend of energy that glues it all together and that could be described as an aggressive edge that is deceptively hidden by the beauty of the arrangements and their sophistication.
