Butterfly Trajectory’s music represents exactly why I continue to write here. There are musicians all over the world doing brilliant work and they send it to me. I love it.

Butterfly Trajectory represent a more metal approach to post-rock. It’s actually quite a bit more metal, given the vocals. Pitor from Butterfly Trajectory is delivering straight up death metal vocals, very much in the tradition of Pitor from Vader. Being a huge Vader fan, the similarity in stylistic approach immediately won me over. The band’s approach to the post-rock progressive sound varies from going at it in a straight up metal approach to backing off for very quiet moments of beauty. It’s more of a calm before the storm thing; a very successful melding of elements from both genres that you don’t hear pulled off with this much skill very often.

I’m really looking forward to whatever these guys do next.
