High Council's second offering is five tracks of uncompromising epic majesty. From the melancholy opening of 'Samsul's Blizzard' to the heart-bursting finale of 'Apocolyosyntosis', Motion Denied is stuffed thick with memorable vocal harmonies, shredding dual leads, and pounding yet unconventional rhythms. High Council once again showcases their wide range of moods and talents, this time with longer, fully fleshed compositions of extraordinary magnitude. Lyrically, each song is a self contained story brought to life by powerful intertwining vocal lines that soar over a monstrous metal attack. Overall, Motion Denied represents the next stage in evolution for High Council.
