Review: The Faceless - Autotheism

Review: The Faceless - Autotheism
Rated:4/5

Ya gotta admire a band that believes in itself. With its third album, the Faceless unveil a new lineup and a bigger, more ambitious sound, one that pushes their technical approach into the realm of full-blown prog. Given the album’s overall concept—“autotheism” means self-deification, and the album opens with the appropriately-titled “Creation”—the occasional dips into semi-symphonic grandeur definitely fit the mood, as do the Greg Lake-ish vocals on “Solitude.” Still, what drives the music is the tightly synched interplay between drums and guitars, and that, particularly as sharpened by Wes Hauch’s surgically precise lead work, definitely deserves a Hallelujah!
