Tera Melos

You would not believe how overjoyed I was when I learned that two of my favorite bands, the Fall of Troy and Portugal. the Man, were embarking on a nationwide tour together. Naturally, with such an amazing tour, there would have to be great openers. Tera Melos, the first of two supporting acts, fits the bill perfectly. Tera Melos does the seemingly impossible, and combines the melodic sweetness of American Football and Braid with the wanton aggression of bands such as Heavy Heavy Low Low and the Number 12 Looks Like You. The instrumental four-piece pulls it off perfectly – “Song for Flowers (Melody 7)” fools you with a sweet introduction that later falls into a cataclysmic breakdown, a transition that only the most talented of experimental bands can accomplish. “Melody 4” does the same but focuses more on the melodic side. These guys are a unique, refreshing take on the experimental prog-core genre, and I’m really hoping their live show is just as impressive as their recorded material.
