THE NEMESIS THEORY
"Hypnopaedia" (Independent; 2006)
Reviewed by Snidermann
The Nemesis Theory and their release "Hypnopaedia" emit a uniquely strange sound that I found fully entertaining. I've heard this type of music called "art metal." On their website, the band suggests "Metaphysicore-Post-Progressive-HardRock-Psychedelic Metal." Whatever, the music is totally unpredictable and travels in wide, perplexing ways that remind me of a meandering science fiction novel.
The range of emotions and musical expression here goes from the strange to the very weird and then back again. What else would you expect from a CD with artwork like this? The good news is that The Nemesis Theory can spin a yarn better than most, although sometimes their overall strangeness gets in the way. Still, when you get past that, you find that this band can rock hard and that's what we're looking for, right?

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
