Music is 100% a Universal language. In almost every corner of the world, there is a band attempting to create music in the hopes of getting it out there to the world. Every brand, no matter how much integrity they think they have, wants to make it. It may not be your main goal and focus while making your music, but it is always in the back of your mind, “maybe someday.” And it’s not unreasonable to have that ambition. The music industry is so fickle you just never know when it is your time to shine. That’s where people like myself and my compatriots hopefully come in and do due diligence and expose you, the faithful reader, to bands you may otherwise miss.

This time I am shining my meager light on a band out of Austria called Elephants In Paradise. I was initially almost dissuaded from even listening to it as it had Modern Metal in the email. It’s not my typical thing, but I’ve been out of the review game for a while, and I’m eager to try out some new stuff, so I gave it a shot. I see why they went with Modern Metal, but it does them a disservice, frankly. Probably the catch-all Progressive would’ve been better, as their music hits that definition better because it explores realms of music that are a bit outside of the typical. The album is entitled Extinction Trilogy, and it is just that, it is a compilation of 3 EPs that had been released digitally as a trilogy compiled for the first time as a single physical release. There are so many elements throughout this album that bring together so many different tastes of music, that combine to make their sound refreshing, yet somehow familiar at the same time. Vocalist Cara Cole has a super powerful voice, able to tackle damn near any dynamic tossed her way by the band.

I wouldn’t sleep on Elephants In Paradise Extinction Trilogy. I rather liked this, and I feel like it would appeal to a wide variety of Metal fans, except for the elitist type that only listens to one type. There’s some good stuff here. Glad I didn’t let a couple of words talk me out of giving it a chance.
