New Eden: Solving for X
New Eden - Solving for X Review

New Eden: Solving for X

Power/Thrash Metal
3.0/5.0

New Eden's latest, Solving for X, their fourth album, may be equally difficult to grasp as to enjoy. What's difficult to grasp is the near formulaic predictability of the album, which revolves around Horacio Colmenares' traditional metal guitar work.

New Eden: shipwrecked.

Mostly, Solving for X is torrid heavier power metal bordering on thrash, at times. Excepting the quizzical closer, the soft Three Words, each song bristles with speed and heaviness, a heaviness almost nearing the harshness of modern metal. Of course, this could be by design. Everything eventually leads to a Colmenares guitar solo, which may be the real highlight here. However, there are two songs, The Not Self and possibly Watcher, that seem to moderate the feverish heaviness, feeling more like traditional melodic power metal.

Otherwise, Solving for X is simply a roaring speed machine of heavier power, and sometimes thrash, metal, with little variation. Buckle up dudes.
