WLM Reviews: Ayreon – The Theory of Everything

Everything is a HUGE concept.  Philosophically, thinking about everything is essentially impossible and discussing everything is a human folly.  Think about it – what is everything?  How does one theorize about – EVERYTHING?  Well, Arjen Anthony Lucassen gives it a go with his latest Ayreon offering, The Theory of Everything on InsideOut Music.

WLM Reviews: Prospekt – The Colourless Sunrise

There have been a number of impressive debut albums released this year that I’ve had the chance to review, quite a few of them in the realm of Progressive/Power Metal.  Here we have another one – British band Prospekt’s initial offering on Sensory Records, The Colourless Sunrise (I knew they were Brits because of the ‘u’!).

WLM Reviews: Lalu – Atomic Ark

Atomic Ark is the latest from French Progressive Metal composer and keyboardist Vivien Lalu on Sensory Records.  As with a lot of albums I get here for review, I was not sure what to expect.  I thought the band name was a bit different so decided to give it a chance.

WLM Reviews: Touchstone – Oceans Of Time

I was introduced to a band I had never heard of, for I have heard of many, many rock, hard rock, and metal acts. UK Progressive Rockers/Metallers, Touchstone, have just released their latest album entitled, Oceans Of Time. Now, what would one think of with that title? Unique solos? Addicting tunes? Long songs?

WLM Reviews: Withem – The Point of You

First off, the album cover for Withem’s The Point of You is kind of disturbing, but completely awesome.  One of the best this year.  When I first saw it, I was very much looking forward to hearing what was behind the artwork.  Luckily, the quality Progressive/Power Metal contained within is quite good.

Album Review: Krimh – Explore

Krimh is the solo project Karen “Krimh” Lechner who is most well-known for his short appearance in polish death metal masters Decapitated.

WLM Reviews: Epica – Requiem For the Indifferent

One thing I have learned about the metal world, don’t underestimate a band until you’ve heard them. Image is one important aspect about a band, but for me, its really more the musical material that counts. I could care less what a band looks like, its talent that’s relevant.

WLM Reviews: Thought Chamber – Psykerion

Psykerion is the second album from California Progressive Metal band Thought Chamber, although with 60% personnel turnover since 2007’s Angular Perceptions.  This particular album, on InsideOut Music, is clearly in the Progressive vein, sometimes Metal, sometimes Rock.
