Imagine a progressive metal band that had all the norms of progressive metal and does it all in their own special little way, but had vocals that seem very much those of Manowar. That was the defining factor for me liking the album because I love Manowar and have honestly always wondered what would happened if you took some of their signatures, like the vocals, and put them in different genres of metal. Well, if you haven’t guessed already, that’s what Mad Parish did for their latest album “Procession”. Now, before some people start getting mad, I’m not calling Mad Parish as good as Manowar. However, “Procession” is a solid album for what it is and certainly worth a listen to if you’re want an easy listen to whether you want to get into some kind of metal or maybe just progressive metal itself. It has a really good sound to it that is something that I would personally listen to casually whenever I needed something different to fill my ears, and Mad Parish is perfect for that for me. For other’s this is something you’d jam to all day every day simply because you think it is the absolute shit. But either way, “Procession” is definitely a noteworthy album to check out if you’re looking for something different and interesting.
