Euclid One of the best pieces of music I've ever heard!! It's such a great fusion of jazz with metal, and a huge display of talent and style Favorite track: Outer-space Lost Shrine.

Cherubian Easily among top three or five in a horde of all generic solo djentlemans out there. Absolutely love the structure of whole album and production is just amazing (that bass!). Awesome use of sax btw.

Josh Aidan Amazingly thoughtful djent with a lot of jazz flavor. Favorite track: Grove finally grown through the emptiness of this place.

Paul Shuler Amazing instrumental! One track has vocals, but is also repeated as an instrumental track. Some good surprises here. Nice work of blending styles from this french metaller. Cross genre would be a great way to term this artist. Saxophone is probably one of the coolest parts about this album. Check it out.

Dorthal France

I'm a 24 years old bassist (since september 2007) and guitarist (since august 2009), I love metal, and every groovy thing !

I received my Line6 UX1 on February 2010, and since that moment, I couldn't stop recording things, and trying to get better at mixing.

Dorthal is my solo project, which, maybe one day, will grow as a band.

Track Name: Verdure
A torrent of life :
flawlessly growing beneath the surface...
As DNA create new helixes,
merging one with each other.

Engineering at his finest, souvenir of an ancient time,
when it all begins billions years ago.

I reached the perfection, none can admire
the beauty of this...
Rising, the lush green verdure comes.

To create, one must first destroy.
From the aridness, the life can finally flow once more.

Divide, split, astonishing dance through the micro-entity.
Everything fits together like clockworks.
The great mecanism growing at light speed.
A torrent of life :
but still the end is to write.
From the ocean, to the mighty mountain,
I've create this blue landscape.
