Axiom – Believe Song Review – Metalhead Community
Today we are featuring another remarkable prog-rock band; Axiom, from the UK. We have reviewed their game changer song; Believe, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Axiom is another promising experimental/instrumental/jazz-rock/progressive rock band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about two months ago with this song; Believe, off from their debut EP; Metathesis which was released in 2019. First things first, Axiom is one of the very few jaw-dropping progressive rock bands I have listened to lately. Hands down. Imagine a band at the same musicality level with the phenomenal musicians out there such as; Guthrie Govan, Marco Minnemann, Mike Portnoy, Marco Sfogli, John Petrucci, John Myung, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Billy Sheehan and so on… They immediately reminded me of Harlem Globetrotters. Well, let me give you some more insight into what makes Axiom special below.
They immediately shock you with their exceptional sound quality and production. The song has top-class technical standards as well as the musical and composing. This is one of the greatest prog-rock mixes I have heard for a very long time. The band is showing incredible potential with their composing skills, creativity and with their advanced musicianship. Believe is a remarkable piece of work which should be thought of as a lesson in every school. They have prog, jazz, fusion here on this one composition here and it’s truly impressive. I call it; intelligent songwriting. Guys, believe me, not everybody can write music like this. This requires advanced musical knowledge, theory, and practice. Not sure if someone has kicked out these three British gentlemen from Berkeley or something?
This kind of music style has been growing since the Liquid Tension Experiment project of virtuoso musicians; Mike Portnoy, John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess, and Tony Levin. And here we are on this day can see the results of their phenomenal work at that time. Axiom is one of the greatest examples of their inspirations. Couldn’t be more grateful indeed!
Although Metathesis is only the debut release of Axiom, they are at the level with the top artists/bands from their specific genre. I don’t want to say Dream Theater here, Axiom is much more free, much more experimental and have room for improvisations, maybe more like G3 or Animals as Leaders. Honestly, hearing such professionalism from a new band is shockingly impressive indeed. If we were playing a video game like Diablo or something here, I’d start the game with the hardest difficulty possible for them. I mean, look at these guys. When you think about it, it’s more likely that this song belongs to Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, and Marco Sfogli than to Axiom. I am just being honest here guys.
Technically, not much to say. Everything from the top to bottom, top-class job. An exceptional piece of work by musicians as well as their producer. I don’t know if they worked with a professional or produced the album by themselves here but who cares for such an outcome?
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am simply blown away by every single thing about Axiom. Their music is so advanced, if I had a label I’d sign them in a blink of an eye. And I’d probably give them a lifetime contract. Axiom has done a remarkable thing here with this album and I am sure we will be hearing their name a lot in the future! I’d love to see them playing live one day and I am sure that day will come!
