Musical Masterpiece

What’s better than Aaron Marshall? Combining both Aaron and percussive genius, Travis Orbin on the drums.
To be concise and up front: This album is the look she gives you after you suggest “Djent and chill.”
You can slay dragons to this music, you can travel the stars to this music, and you can relax and have a smoke to this music.

Let me break it down for you:
I’ve listened to all the songs released on YouTube carefully. This album is so many things: It’s djenty jazzy dreams, it’s progressive powerhouse pieces, it’s masterfully melodic, and it’s a goddamn piece of ART.

If you’re looking for “metal with burning churches and screaming bloody murder,” then do NOT buy this album.
HOWEVER… if you’re a musician, a mathematician, an artist whose brushstrokes come from the soul, or just a fan of technically appeasing, yet relaxing instru-metal, then THIS… is your new favorite album.

It’s a Metal Opus. It’s driving down the highway with the cool breeze in your hair. It’s a glass of wine, or your favorite brand of brew in a six-pack after a long hard day at work.

Like I said earlier: This album is the look she gives you after you suggest “Djent and chill.”
You can slay dragons to this music, you can travel the stars to this music, and you can relax and have a smoke to this music.

Think I’m going to go and write the Great American Novel with this as my soundtrack.
Yeah, it’s that good.

Complete tonal mastery.

Aaron Marshall and friends provide a masterful and insightful record here. The Shape of Colour demonstrates the brilliance, maturity, and complete tonal control of instrumental music composition. There are many progressive vituosos out there, but this record has set the bar at a new level for others to aim for. With such greats as Grumusic, Plini (who appears on the record), Govan, and others making historically amazing music, Aaron has earned a spot with, if not above, the offerings of these artists with this record. I would walk past any G3 venue to see an Intervals show. Explosions and restraint, skill and careful expression, mystery and joy all with amazing production and flawless mastering. Well done guys, well done.

An absolute masterpiece!

This is Aaron’s most mature and refined release to date. There is something for everybody on this record. It is a departure from his previous instrumental releases, as he is still growing and evolving as a musician, but all of the aspects of his playing that we have been in love with from the beginning are present and better than ever. The composition is world class, the licks are as tasty, and the hooks are catchy. Buy this record and show it to your friends!
