As much as I feel like I should like them, I just can't get into Polyphia. I mean, I love other instrumental prog groups, especially similar work like Chon, AaL, Angel Vivaldi, etc. That being said, Polyphia always seemed like that cringe-filled meme prog band, and their music just feels so pointless, it very rarely goes anywhere special, and the solos lose their flare quickly.
August Burns Red Parkway Drive Periphery Stick to Your Guns Architects Thy Art is Murder
ABR and PWD have been constantly re-releasing the same album since 2010ish. I couldn't name a single song off of any Periphery album after the first one despite listening to all of them multiple times. Stick to Your Guns is annoying and their vocalist needs to shut the fuck up, but at least the new album doesn't have any soundbites of Ben Kingsley from Gandhi or whatever they were doing on The Hope Division. Architects and Thy Art are generally fine except most of their recent stuff sounds identical to me.
