Conforza; where technical and creative meet

See also

I don't care for super technical metal, every rule has an exception, and to the aforementioned rule Conforza is that exception. Hailing from the southern New Hampshire/ northern Massachusetts region of New England Conforza has reinvigorated my interest in the technical side of metal, something that hasn't happened since I first heard Between the Buried and Me. My issue with overly technical metal, or any music for that matter, is that music is an art form not a skills competition. Creativity is what I care about, and bands that lean heavily on their technical skills are usually compensating for their lack of creative song writing. Such is not the case for this progressive death metal outfit.

As I progressed through the tracks on their Facebook Page I found myself growingly excited, this was not just another generic metal band. The song composition, the epic melodies, and the fast and furious intensity are a standard to all other local metal bands. My personal favorite has to be "The annexation of Puerto Rico". From the almost menacing and haunting opening melody to the frantic and abrasive moments that crash into fist pumping rhythms all topped off with the appropriate amount of technical showmanship. However the quality is not limited to this one track, as a whole Conforza is a band you do not want to sleep on. Make sure you check back here for an exclusive interview with lead singer Mykel Boisvert.
