UMUR
"Vanishing Celestial Bodies" is an EP release by Polish metal act Neurothing. The EP was independently released in June 2005. Neurothing formed in 2004 and "Vanishing Celestial Bodies" is their first release. The EP features 4 tracks and a full playing time of 17:13 minutes.

Stylistically the music on the EP is a technical extreme metal style, which is obviously influenced by the angular chugging style of Meshuggah. While Neurothing don´t quite reach the intense polyrhythmic assault or the high number of challenging time-signatures of the Swedes, they do deliver quite the impressive technical attack. The vocals are predominantly aggressive hardcore oriented screaming (which again isn´t too far from the vocals on Meshuggah´s music), but there are some clean male vocals in the EP too. Neurothing should probably not have included the clean vocals though, as they aren´t very well sounding. The material is othwewise well composed, powerful, and effective.

"Vanishing Celestial Bodies" is relatively well produced, featuring a powerful, clear, and detailed sound production and paired with the potent material, and the high level musicianship, it´s a good quality EP and a promising first release by Neurothing. The band don´t have that many original ideas though and that´s a minor issue, so they probably need a little more time to develop their sound and find their own unique take on the style of music they´ve chosen to play. A 3 - 3.5 (65%) rating is warranted.
