Realm - Theseus and the Minotaur (4:19-ish)
You want to know what a fucking cool band is? Realm is a fucking cool band and completely off the hook. This was on one of their demos but where I heard it was at the back of the reissue of Endless War (totally boss sleeve art on that one). Nice lead work at the start which is a highlight of any Realm song but then again, the everyone in this band is a highlight. (0:48) Vocals are in the high range but it's nothing like Toxik whom I guess are a pretty close comparison. Nothing beats that out. There's bass all over this and the solos (2:59-3:24 and the little one near the beginning) just do it for me. Oddly this song doesn't sound as 'nervous' as the other songs on Endless War if that's what you could say about it.
