EXCEED (Malaysia)
Quantum Destiny
Demo 2002
I was just about to print this zine and fortunately while I am doing my last checking on this zine, I found out that I miss out few releases for review. It is a loss for all of us if this band is not featured in this review. Why? Because they are the only band from the local underground scene playing this kind of music. While others playing black/death or nu-metal (the band in this style is increasing...), EXCEED plays progressive metal/rock. Having said this, you will hear cool guitars riff, effect, etc but in a 'muddy' sound like most of the local bands, which is a turn-off. Their next release will be a something that I urge everyone to check, if they can improve the sound and also find the suitable vocals for the tracks.
