Looking at the influences of Light Pupil Dilate, you cannot help to raise an eyebrow. Rough Metal bands like Slayer or Sepultura, progressive acts like Yes and King Crimson and alternative music like Fugazi, Hot Water Music - everything seems to be there. And therefore the finished product isn´t astounding: The US trio plays racing Thrash attacks as well as calm dreamy melancholic parts. This wide range challenges the listener but also is a reason why Snake Wine isn´t boring at all. We want more!
