The Unravelling

Master Drone (digital single)

Review by Gary Hill

This clearly isn’t progressive rock in the classic old school definition. It’s definitely progressive music, though. It’s quite cool, too. I’d love to hear more from this act, as this has me intrigued.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2015  Volume 4 at

Track by Track Review
Master Drone

This comes in dark and mysterious. It’s rather ambient at the start. Waves of sound that lean toward shoegaze are heard. That’s tempered with a real heavy industrial metal type sound. The vocals bring in a rather extreme epic metal sound. This piece is extremely heavy. It’s also very diverse and creative. It rocks like crazy. It’s dark and imposing. It’s also especially effective. There is a theatrical, progressive edge to it in some ways.That and just the general creativity here land this in prog rather than metal to me.

(Editor's Note - Music Street Journal is set up for the allocation of albums, not singles - particularly not one-song singles. So, in the instances, like this one, where we've covered single song releases, we've had to make some adaptations for formatting. In the case of this one, just imagine both track review and overall review reading as one set of copy. )
