Scale the Summit - "Whales"

With the release of their third full length, Collective (nothing do to with animals), instrumental shredders Scale the Summit have kicked off an awesome month for metal. Check out the track "Whales", posted below. These guys are one of the few technical metal bands out there that always write with a keen ear for melody. Their music weaves through time signature changes and complex rhythms without ever giving into self indulgence. "Whales" starts off with a dark, Pelican-esque intro before surging forward through Chris Letchford's excellently phrased lead guitar lines. Make sure you pay close attention to the serenely spiraling arpeggios around the 4:20 mark.
