Prototype - _Seed_
by: Adrian Bromley (3 out of 5)
This Los Angeles-based quartet has got the right thing going on here. With a very defined thrash metal sound, sounding much like the newer/slicker version of Megadeth in some spots and still incorporating some old school thrash metal elements, not to mention progressive metal styles of Damn the Machine and Fates Warning at times too, L.A.'s Prototype are aiming towards bringing variety and uniqueness back to music to some extent. What happens with the _Seed_ demo is that the band leads us through a sample of their music roster: "Seed", "Shine", and "Dead of Jericho" - songs that while similar in some spots, radiate variety and craftsmanship. This band consists of great musicians and do nothing wrong in making us believe those qualities exist, it is just that even though the music on this demo is well executed, it seems to lack a notion of integrity and feeling. The music sounds great (don't get me wrong), it is just that after a few listens I am left with little of any impression of what the band has delivered to me musically. Sound is one thing but also is reaching out to the audience and shaking them a bit. A mixed review nonetheless.
