WITHIN Y - EXTENDED MENTAL DIMENSIONS - KARMAGEDDON/CANDLELIGHT
It is often said that music should be less about the mechanics and more about stimulation. If that is true Within Y should enjoy a good response to its debut album Extended Mental Dimensions. The enthusiast could put aside questions such as "what does the band's moniker mean?" or wonder less about "how Within Y resembles At The Gates" and focus more on how the newcomer Swedes deliver intensely fast and heavy thrash metal. Moreover, the band has made sure that the CD is graced with a powerful sound production and that the arrangements are tight and advanced. Sure, originality factors nowhere into it, but if it is less about philosophy and more about banging heads all that one needs can be found within the circle of Y. - Ali "The Metallian"
