This is one of those albums where I’m sure people will disagree with it landing under progressive rock. The thing is, if you think modern Radiohead or Porcupine Tree are prog, then this is prog. A lot of it lands pretty close to the territory occupied by those acts. Still other music here leans even more into progressive rock like modern King Crimson. No matter how you categorize this, though, it’s quite an entertaining set and I like it a lot.
Great write-up in Horror Society Magazine:
While writing music for others is fine and dandy, for most songwriters, it’s just not the same as when you get to perform your own material, as well. And this appears to be the case for Matt Montgomery and Gregory Howe, who have co-formed a new outfit, Neomythics, after penning tunes for other artists signed to Howe’s label, Wide Hive Records.
Interestingly, the style that Neomythics specialize in is not reflective of the style that the Wide Hive label usually specializes in (which is supposedly jazz and funk). Instead vintage post-punk is brought to mind throughout their twelve-track debut full-length, New Corporate Resistance, released via Ex-Fed Records.
