Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars The third and final (?) release from Theory in Practice is a good technical death metal album. I wouldn┤t call it excellent but it is absolutely worth purchasing.

There have been some changes since their last album The Armageddon Theories. The music has become a bit more accesible without ever touching the commercial though. The Armageddon Theories was a technical Death Metal tour de force with brilliant melodic solos and a fierce vocal delivery. The ever changing rythm patterns and time changes kept that one very interessting througout. I am not as impressed with Colonizing the Sun. It┤s pretty good though.

Theory in Practice have incorporated more melodic playing into their style and the technical time changes are kept more simple ( well simple compared to their previous efforts, not simple in other contexts), which means they sound more like a normal melodic swedish death metal band now. To some listeners this will be a good thing, but it kind of turns me off. I liked their more unaccesible sound. One more thing about the album is the vocals. They have a very processed sound, and that is too bad since I really loved Henrik Ohlsson┤s extremely fierce vocals on The Armageddon Theories. I guess he got tired of spitting blood after each rehearsal and concert.

I have to note that the production is very clean and nice this time around. The Armageddon Theories didn┤t have the best sound, but Colonizing the Sun has a very professional sounding production.

All in all this is a good technical death metal album. Theory in Practice is still a very agressive band and the technical playing on the album should satisfy most fans of the genre. I just don┤t feel it┤s genre defining or above average. 3 stars.
