Don't be fooled by Ukrainian 5R6's debut album 'Islands', since it starts with a calm 2-minute song called 'The Ledge'. After that "intro", 'Islands' bursts into a style of prog metal that owes some of its more intense moments to thrash, but is no less comfortable proffering post-grunge harmonies. This debut is the type of album that grows on you with each listen. Full of wonder and eeriness, it is quite the experience to behold and one worth taking. Turn off the lights, close your eyes, and let the music take you away to another world.
