The Clearing Path came to existence as a brainchild and the oldest project of Gabriele Gramaglia. After releasing one full length album in 2015., The Clearing Path is back with its newest album to go forth in the new dimensions of music.
The music, as they say has no boundaries and also the creativity behind the art in this band has no boundaries. The album contains four songs of extreme music which can not be placed in any usual box, meaning subgenre of metal. I believe thats exactly what was intended with this album. There is a black metal base there, and that being technical black metal in the vein of Emperor, but there are also many layers thrown upon that base, layers of technical death metal, psychodelia, haunting keyboard melodies and I must admit, that made it a bit too chaotic listening for my experience. I must take hats off to the man for the idea and also for the realization, but that is just too many pieces of everything and that made it not so enjoyable for me. But, do not be discouraged, this is still a fine piece of metal record, so give it a go. You never know, you might like it and it might become one of your favourite bands.
