THINE picture
One of the most powerful forces in the goth metal underground, Thine stepped into the spotlight in the late '90s and continued to make waves throughout the next few years. It all started in 1996 when singer Alan, guitarist Paul, and drummer Dan came together due to their love of heavy music. Putting together the rough Journey's demo later that year, a member of Black Tears Records' staff heard the record and recommended them to be signed. Journey's was released as an EP and immediately began racking up positive opinions from metal zines. The band went into a furious writing stage and recorded a tape for their friends to get some of the material out of their heads. Even though it was limited to a small group of people, the album still spread into the tape-trading underground and began prompting responses from more labels.

Re-animate the metal...

Genre: progressive/avant-garde goth metal

This stuff is pretty weird. It is also pretty cool. It is progressive and avant-garde, but not in the usual technical manner of excessive instrument-wankery. Thine draw more on the psychedelia and genre transgression of 70s progressive rock and blend it in with a dark gothic athmosphere (not gothic in the sense of Paradise Lost and Type O Negative type of gothic metal, but more in the spirit of post punk goth rock). "A Town Like This" certainly is an arty and more intellectually appealling effort.

Although it draw a lot on genres outside of metal, I think Thine (at least on this album) are still a metal band, since they do draw extensively on sludge metal and new metal (maybe they're a post metal band - I don't know).

"A Town Like This" is perhaps a challenging listen, but I think that fans of psychedelic progressive metal and dark rock might like it. In any case, you will have to give it a couple of spins, I think, to get used to it.
