elebrating ten years of what has been dubbed progressive death metal and has earned them a cult following, Finland's six-piece outfit Barren Earth have released their fourth full length album, A Complex Of Cages. Each band member - Jón Aldará (vocals), Janne Perttilä (guitar), Sami Yli-Sirniö (guitar), Olli-Pekka Laine (bass), Antti Myllynen (keyboards), and Marko Tarvonen (drums) - possesses their own musical background, but the one unifying aspect among them since day one has been the appreciation of '70s progressive rock bands, an appreciation they readily admit trickles down into their songwriting. And while the "progressive" tag could be seen as locking Barren Earth into a box, they wear it proudly in the context of heavy metal even though their sound is so much more dynamic and multi-dimensional than the technical performances so often attributed to progressive metal. Look no further than A Complex Of Cages for proof.
