  • This is what the ancient bearded one has to say:"Morgan Ågren is one of the great drummers of our time. Best known for his work with Mats/Morgan Band, he's also a fine composer and musical thinker.Since the mid 2000s, one of his interests have been to combine the intense jazz/rock stylings of the Mats/Morgan's earlier work with more contemporary technology, stylings and sounds (think 'beats' and 'electronica'); while those words might scare some folks reading this away, if you liked the sound of "Thanks For Flying With Us" and "[schack tati]", you've heard what I am talking about.He's been working on this album for the last number of years and it's very much a companion to "[schack tati]" stylistically, some of it completely solo (but not solo drums by any means) and some of it with Mats, as well as Devin Townsend, Fredrik Thordendal, Jimmy Ågren, Simon Steensland and others. Highly recommended! Released only in Japan, in a elegant, mini-lp sleeve!"

  • Quite melodic, would actually appeal to fans of Stratovarius, etc.

  • AlieNatura is the second album from this superb band playing in the classic "rock progressivo italiano" style.  The band is led by keyboardist Elisa Montaldo, who is as impressive on the ears as she is on the eyes (pardon the sexist comment).  One of the strong points of the band's debut was the inclusion in the lineup of former Museo Rosenbach vocalist Lupi Galifi.  With MR reforming he's left Il Tempio Delle Clessidre.  The obvious concern is who could fill his shoes?  Apparently the unknown Francesco Ciapica.  Truth is he does a fine job.  The guy can sing.  He has that expressive style that fits this music so perfectly.  Beautiful symphonic keyboards, liquid guitar runs, phat Moog solos - this band has the sound down pat.  The Italian scene seems to be burgeoning with new RPI bands and I would classify Il Tempio Delle Clessidre right up there with La Maschera Di Cera.  That's saying something.  BUY OR DIE!

  • Dial is the new project put together by Kristoffer Gildenlow upon his departure from Pain Of Salvation. His partners are Liselotte Hegt and Rommert van der Meer, formerly of Dutch prog metal band Cirrha Niva. The music has a modern feel with emphasis on mood and textures. I'm reminded a bit of Kate Bush. Some nice male/female harmonies. The band is rounded out by Elegy drummer Dirk Bruinenberg with contributions on vocals by Devon Graves (Dead Soul Tribe). Certainly a bit different and nothing at all like PoS.

  • James LaBrie once again that there is life outside of Dream Theater.  His solo band features a stable lineup consisting of Matt Guillory (keyboards), Marco Sfogli (guitars), Ray Riendeau (bass), Peter Wildoer (drums, death vox).  Jens Bogren once again mixed. An interesting twist to the mix is the inclusion of Soilwork's Peter Wichers who contributes some guitarwork and also collaborated on songwriting with LaBrie.While the music is square on prog metal and all in all not too dissimilar to Dream Theater its different enough to have its own vibe.  Wildoer's coarse vocal approach offers an interesting counterbalance to LaBrie's upper midrange clean voice.  The limited digipak edition comes with two bonus tracks.  Highly recommended.

  • “The Atomized Dream” is the fourth full length release from this Georgia based instrumental metal band. With a new expanded lineup, the Canvas Solaris “sound” continues to evolve.The band has shown tremendous growth since their beginnings in 1999, evolving out of the death metal/mathcore scene. Dropping their vocalist along the way the band decided to emphasize intricate arrangements, creating compositions that only the most adept musicians could play. Canvas Solaris’ music resonated equally with fans of technical metal co-horts Behold The Arctopus and Spastic Ink as well as bands like Don Caballero and Dillinger Escape Plan.Following the recording of their third album, Cortical Tectonics, the lineup saw a radical change. Band founders Nathan Sapp (guitars) and Hunter Ginn (drums) replaced departing guitarist/bassist Ben Simpkins with 3 new members. Joining are Chris Rushing (guitars), Donnie Smith (analog synth), and Gael Pirlot (bass). While the core sound has remained these new members have clearly made their mark. Keyboards now play a more prominent role, while the twin guitar interplay is mesmerizing. The band continues to contrast hyper-technical metal passages with spacey and quiet acoustic based interludes.A recent tour with Behold The Arctopus and Dyshrythmia brought attention to the band and they plan on continuing the momentum with additional shows in 2008.The band is always interested in presenting their work with interesting graphics. They are honored to have noted low brow artist Mars-1 provide the cover art. Once again the album was produced by Jamie King (Between The Buried and Me) and mastered by Grammy winning engineer Bob Katz.

  • In their brief existence, Haken are already highly respected within the British metal community, and their unique and imaginative genre-bending approach to music has garnered praise from all corners of the globe.Haken’s debut “Aquarius” was well-received by world wide media including Classic Rock Presents Prog, Outburn, Decibel, Progression as well as webzines. Their new release, “Visions” is yet another conceptual work encompassing sci-fi themes. Haken seamlessly meld metal with progressive rock, drawing influences from contemporary bands like Dream Theater and IQ as well as “old school” icons Genesis and Queen. Often bombastic and over the top, “Visions” features the addition of a string section and audiophile production from Spacelab Studios in Germany.During the past year, the band has toured extensively in Europe highlighted by an appearance in Germany at the prestigous Night Of The Prog festival in support of Dream Theater. The band made its US debut at ProgPower USA in September 2011.

  • "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

  • Limited edition digipak comes with a bonus track - a cover of The Tea Party's "Temptation".First studio album in five years from this revered band. Like a fine wine, Nevermore keeps getting better with age, improving their game along the way. For my personal taste they are the best of the US power metal bands going and probably the heaviest. This album was produced by Peter Wichers and Andy Sneap mixed.

  • Limited edition digipak features the band's new album plus a bonus track. The DVD (PAL format) features video clips, "making of" documentary, interviews and live footage."Eluveitie are a folk metal act based in Winterthur, Switzerland, with strong Celtic influences. Helvetios is their fifth full-length studio album and first concept release. Most of their lyrics are in Gaulish, officially an extinct language. Eluveitie maintain a revolving line-up of anywhere between eight and ten musicians, performing live with a variety of folk instruments, including tin whistles, bagpipes and hurdy-gurdies. Violin is also featured prominently in their sound. The narrative of Helvetios chronicles the history of the Helvetians and their role in the Gaulish War, which took place in Europe between 58 to 50 B.C., during the height of the Roman Empire. The Helvetians where a Celtic tribe that occupied the Swiss plateau and they were ultimately defeated when the Romans finally invaded and conquered Gaul. The band's moniker, Eluveitie, is the Gaulish word for Helvetian, so it's clear that they're attempting to dig deeper into the culture that inspires their music and songwriting. The historically rooted story arc of the album is gripping, capturing the listener right from the spoken word intro, "Prologue." The narrative is one of struggle and defeat, standing up to a much more powerful enemy, and the soaring, inspiring instrumentation is the perfect accompaniment. "The Uprising" is incredibly powerful and it's easy to get swept along by its compelling imagery. These are songs of war, of resistance, rebellion, strength and loss. The defiance is balanced with regret and the emotional pitch of the album is spot on. This is unquestionably Eluveitie's strongest release, and an exceptional piece of folk metal as well." - Exclaim

  • Umm...this band is insane.  I mean that in a good way.  Miserium is a quartet from Hungary.  This is one of those off kilter releases that is constantly challenging you.  There is a strong similarity to Leprous and early Pain of Salvation.  As far as a comparison, while I think that Leprous closest hits the mark the band does acknowledge the PoS influence by dedicating a song to Daniel Gildenlow.Mostly clean vocals but with occasional growlies.  There is an agressive quality to the music but everything is constantly shifting in tempos and mood.  Toss in sound samples taken from movie soundtracks and you'll really be scratching your head.  Its one of those albums where you don't know what's coming next but you have to listen carefully so you don't miss anything.This is what progressive metal is all about.  BUY OR DIE!
