This next album obviously falls into the “good” section (I wouldn’t be writing about it otherwise!). After searching Bandcamp for new material, I came across the band Miroist, a solo project from London. Spanning from progressive metal, to djent, ambient rock, post-metal, and even electronica, their latest album “Curve” is different from many of the albums I’ve already reviewed.
