There’s some serious musicianship in these songs of solitary suffering by prog-metal duo Project Sapiens. Hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark, their songs offer up a whole prog-platter of goodies for the faithful. Hardcore metalheads, in fact, will go for “Here We Are” with its Avenged Sevenfold/Killswitch vocals and existential lyrics. A very well-put-together scream-along song. Leaning to the mainstream (and more original vocally) are the songs “Anger” and “My Prison Cell” with its ‘90s-era whispers. Musicianship is impressive throughout while the drum tracking is solid. The lack of any trace of an accent in Mads Rahback’s lead vocals is a definite plus for this Project’s commercial prospects in the US.
