Fantastic double live disc that features the entire "A Change Of Seasons" suite as well as a nice sampling of material from "Images & Words" through "Falling Into Infinity". Derek Sherinian is very good but John Petrucci really dominates (in a good way).

  • "Chicago metal legends TROUBLE return with their first album since 'Simple Mind Condition', released in 2007. The album entitled 'The Distortion Field' features 13 tracks and will be released by FRW Music in North America on July 16th 2013 and in Europe on July 26th, 2013.'The Distortion Field' makes history in the TROUBLE camp through the band's acquisition of a new lead vocalist, Kyle Thomas of Exorder and Floodgate fame.Commenting on new vocalist Thomas, TROUBLE founder and guitarist Rick Wartell says, "Kyle is one of the most impressive singers I've ever heard, and by far the most extraordinary singer I've ever had the pleasure of working with. He's got incredible range, incredible power, and an incredible knowledge of TROUBLE, as he's been a fan for 20-something years. We've known him forever, and he innately understands what TROUBLE is about. He's like the perfect guy to come in and do this job. It's awesome."Veteran Music Producer Bill Metoyer is once again lending his expertise, having previously worked with the band on 'The Skull' and 'Trouble', both Metal Blade releases."Musically, I think this album is a true TROUBLE record.", states Wartell. "In the early days, we used to just write what we felt and didn't really care about what anyone said. We just wrote heavy riffs and played our music our way. But outside influences can kind of get a hold of you and start telling you what to do. When we were writing this album, the thinking was, we don't care what anybody thinks. We're going to write what we write. So this is basically a return to our roots, while combining some reflections of our band's long history as well. With the two different music writers, Bruce and myself, we have a slight variation in our writing; Bruce has more of a '70s groove to his writing, and I'm more the old school doomy metal thing. And when you put it together, you get TROUBLE.""

  • When seven Greek charlatans get together, the musical visions that springs from their minds, can only be described as a true freakshow.Back in late 2004 the idea of a band that could develop a theatrical attitude and combine different musical elements with the dynamics of metal and rock sound, brought DAKRYA to life ....Following the usual demos and local live shows, the band released its debut album "Monumento" in the spring of 2008. Receiving great reviews and good support from both the media and the fans in and around Greece, DAKRYA started touring on a broader scale, supporting such bands as MOONSPELL.In 2009 the band began to work on new material; the main goal was to put even more emphasis on the 'theatrical' style of DAKRYA, and in January 2010 the band entered the studio with engineer George Bokos (Rotting Christ) to record their sophomore album, "Crime Scene".Come March 2010 the band find themselves sitting in a studio in Sweden mixing the album together with Pelle Saether (Diablo Swing Orchestra, Draconian, Madder Morten), followed by a trip to other Swedish sound-guru Göran Finnberg (Opeth, Dark Tranquillity, In Flames, Arch Enemy) for the mastering of the disc.CRIME SCENE is actually a metaphor about the world we live in. So simple and so complicated at the same time. A person has to change so many faces in order to obtain a “socialized” and “normal” image, that if you think about it a little bit… we all look psychotic. In CRIME SCENE we improvise against reality! Snapshots taken from our everyday lives.From the opener "The Charlatans", over the obvious hit of "The Urban Tribe" to the final notes of the closing soundscape "A Dreadful Sidescene", the album is a one-of-a-kind musical experience. Ranging from the psychotic and cinematic melodrama heard in bands like Diablo Swing Orchestra and Unexpect to the orchestrated gothic metal comparable to Therion and Theatre Of Tragedy, DAKRYA paints their mark all over the canvas.

  • Who would have believed that Greece has one of the strongest and most fervent markets for heavy metal in the World. Not only is it a required destination for any band touring Europe but many home grown bands achieve attention from fans and the local metal media. It is from this hot bed that Wastefall emerged to create two superb progressive metal albums for the Greek label Sleaszy Rider Records. Sensory Records has now signed Wastefall world wide for the release of their third album Self Exile.While Wastefall has often been compared to Swedens Pain Of Salvation their music is much more aggressive and dynamic. The bands desire to take their music to the next level led them to Denmark to work with noted producer Tommy Hansen (Helloween, Pretty Maids, Wuthering Heights). The results are quite evident Self Exile retains all of the bands trademarks but the music is heavier and more immediate. When you hear Self Exile Pain Of Salvation will instantly spring to mind but also Pantera, vintage Metallica, and Nevermore as well. This is an album that has more than enough complexity and passion for the prog fan but is also heavy enough for any metal fan.Wastefall will be making their North American debut appearance at the world renowned ProgPower USA festival on September 16, 2006 in Atlanta, Georgia.

  • Although the material is a bit more concise it is equally as effective as No Pussyfooting. There are some drop dead gorgeous tracks here that are soul-stirring. An important forerunner in the field of ambient music. Essential. New edition in a digipak featuring 24 bit mastering.

  • "They re back at it! Flying Colors launched in 2012 following a formation that began with a simple idea: virtuoso musicians and a pop singer joining together to make new-fashioned music the old fashioned way. Refreshing, classic, old and new, the recordings are saturated with the many styles, tones and hues of the players who in becoming a band delivered a unique fusion of vintage craftsmanship and contemporary music. Flying Colors is Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater), Dave LaRue (Joe Satriani) Neal Morse (Spock s Beard), Casey McPherson (Alpha Rev), and Steve Morse (Deep Purple).Live In Europe captures the quintet in Tilberg, Holland performing at 013 on September 20, 2012.  The show presents the entire studio album along with popular favorites by individual members."

  • "Labyrinth released one great prog power metal album that everyone talks about in Return to Heaven Denied, and yes, it was awesome. I'm not very familiar with their career in between that album and this one, but I like this one a lot. 6 Days to Nowhere is one of the more extreme examples of a former power metal band going in an entirely new, strange direction, as this is basically a cross between subdued melodic metal and Radiohead-esque mellow coffee shop soft rock, and it's great.I know, I know – that probably doesn't sound good. But the band really sells it, and they do the style up with genuine emotional and heartfelt songwriting. There are a lot of songs on here and they're all fairly simple, with little adornments outside of rhythmic guitars and cool, light keyboard sprinklings and catchy vocal lines – they're very to-the-point and it works, because it takes talent to make simplistic songs this engaging. Vocalist Rob Tiranti reins in his high pitched wailing for a more controlled performance, which is fitting for the album – not every singer needs to wail his head off to sound great.So really there's no obstacles between the listener and the raw emotion on display – the raw feelings of loneliness and isolation and being trapped; no boundaries of technicality and musical adornments to distract from the outpouring sorrow and unrest from Tiranti's silky vocal cords and those svelte, slick guitar riffs. On songs like “Crossroads” and “Just One Day” they sound the most metal, with rattling guitar riffing and galloping tempos – albeit with a much more pensive attitude than most of their contemporaries would go for. “Lost” is a brilliant song, transitioning much better than anyone could rightfully expect between charging speed and mellow, jazzy despair and “What???” is a bizarre slice of chugging, idiosyncratic prog that ends up one of the album's more deft, clever moments overall.Most of the album foregoes the metal in favor of more laid back rock music. “Mother Earth” is a bluesy old school 70s rock track with mellow leads and a wailing vocal set and songs like “Waiting Tomorrow,” “Coldness” and “Rusted Nail,” which see the band embracing stodgy rock riffs and plain, amiable vocals perhaps more friendly to the inside of an indie rock show. “Wolves'n'Lambs” is perhaps one of the album's weirdest moments with a lurching chorus section bookended by electronic rhythms, and closing ballad “Smoke and Dreams” is a perfect soundtrack to wandering the city streets under the moon in a city you've never been to before.Despite the variety on display, lyrically is where the album really comes together, as all these songs are tied together with themes of feeling displaced and out of touch and alone. It's not happy music, and the vibe is a very detached and chilled kind of malaise, which makes it unique compared to the angst you might expect upon reading some of the lyrics with no music. But it works, and I think it's really relatable and easy to get into. Who can't remember a time they felt that way – alone and scared and shut off from humanity? The band sells the lyrics with a genuine honesty, and the album comes out affecting and personal as a real artistic statement. I dig this and you should check it out if you like individual, emotionally resonant music – very highly recommended." - The Metal Archives

  • "Devin Townsend - fully 30 records into an astonishing career - has now just raised the stakes in the form of a new double album combining Ziltoid The Omniscient’s triumphant return and the follow-up to the critically acclaimed “Epicloud!” Feasting upon Z2 is akin to immersing oneself in the arcane creases of the DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT catalog, bludgeoning heaviness and angelic melodies living under the cathedral of Devin’s more contemplative solo vision. The effect is lush, full- range, cinematic, and expressive. Addressing the creative tension between the two discs, Devin explains “...it’s DTP...the ‘humans’ against Ziltoid, and it’s a battle of sorts...The DTP and Ziltoid side of my writing has evolved to where this statement was necessary and undoubtedly inevitable. The battle between the two seems like a great way to priced to the next chapter of my work. It’s a backdrop for something that hopefully engaging for people. I hope that the point that I’m trying to make with Ziltoid and the metaphor behind it, isn’t lost in just a sea of absurdity.” Guest musicians include Anneke Van Giersbergen (solo artist, ex-THE GATHERING) and Chris Jericho (WWE star, FOZZY) as Captain Spectacular! Also featuring the "Universal Choir", 2000 voices strong, the biggest choir on a metal record ever!"Limited edition 3CD digipak with bonus disc and special artwork.

  • This one has been out of print forever and has now been properly remastered by EMI. At this point the band experimented with a more direct sound bordering on metal at times. I always loved that great Rodney Matthews cover.Please note this disc incorporates EMI copy control technology which seems to allow you to do whatever it is you would normally do with a CD but you can't rip it. Bummer.
