How does one go about reviewing a 2 hour album? It’s often difficult enough to make it through one that’s just 45 minutes long. Dream Theater has challenged with their latest album The Astonishing on Roadrunner Records.
I hadn’t heard of “supergroup” Headspace before getting the promo for their latest. When I saw that Damian Wilson (Threshold) was holding down vocal duties, how could I resist checking out All That You Fear is Gone from InsideOut?
One of my all time favorite and severely under appreciated bands is back with a shot of Canadian progressive sci-fi Metal. Voivod has once again made a significant personnel change, but its effect is little noticed on Post Society from Century Media Records.
The name Cloudscape conjours up images of placid, flowing, new agey pablum – however, that is not at all what this Swedish Prog/Power Metal band is about. Their latest, Voice of Reason on Dead End Exit Records might take you into the clouds, but it will be a Metal ride.
I had the chance to sit down with the members of Dissona prior to their album release show for Paleopneumatic in Chicago. The plan was for coffee, but we couldn’t find a place so we ended up in Chipotle.
Much like this year’s other fantastic Prog Metal release (Dissona‘s Paleopneumatic), Seattle’s Rhine throws together a mix of seemingly disparate parts and realizes a brilliant work on the other side with their sophomore album An Outsider, a self released effort.
Chicago Prog Metal band Dissona has been getting some much deserved love from me around here lately. Their new album, Paleopneumatic, is fantastic and I had the chance to catch the band at their album release show.
Sophomore albums often tell us what a band is truly made of, since they had forever to write the debut, but only a relatively short amount of time for the second. How does Chronos Zero fare on Hollowlands – The Tears Path: Chapter One?
