By: Jordyn Meade-Baxter

Album – Just the Tip
Download Link – 
Release Date – June 24, 2014
Genre – Progressive Thrash Metal

The multi genre Vacouver band, Expain, has recently released their newest album called “Just the Tip”. The album I find definitely shows how their influences come together in their music and makes them really multi genre. You can hear the different kinds of music through their notes that they play in some parts, guitar scales and in many other ways.

Jazz makes in into this album through the sound of the music coming together and the underlay of the more emphasized sound, making the album sound complete. It is an odd combination to have, jazz and metal, but this band makes it work.

Their single that they had pre-released for this album is definitely one of my favourites. “Aggression Progression” has the clean underlay and keeps the album upbeat.

If you’re a metal fan, I highly suggest this album.

Rating: 4/5
