Progressive metal formation LestWeForget presents the group’s impressive technical and songwriting capabilities with “Zero Won” – an organic and cohesive product, which provides a spectacular tonally and stylistically diverse composition that clearly showcases the work of a skilled, mature and self-assured band with already developed self-assessment of its qualities, abilities and artistic vision. Incorporating encompassing influences subtly into a progressive metal setting, “Zero Won” provides a comforting alternative tone, in between the bursts of technical insanity, with strong melody and technical precision, as it is constructed by multiple magnificent pieces (comprised of heavy riffing, a mixture of clean and harsh vocals, versatile drumming and a flawless intuition for song development) that don’t waste a single note or lose focus, or the listener’s attention, for a single moment.

It should be a weird mess but it’s an absolute banger.
