Album Review: Seventh Dimension – Recognition

I’m really starting to believe that this is going to be the year for lesser-known bands to make their mark in the prog metal scene. While last year saw some fantastic albums by some of the most well-known bands in the genre (Evergrey, Threshold, Vanden Plas, Opeth, Haken, Cynic, Devin Townsend, etc.), this year has […] 

Prog Metal New Releases: Feb 24, 2015

New prog metal albums for the last week of February include some excellent melodic prog metal from the U.K. post-metal band Code, new U.S. band Ashen Waves and the cool post-rock/metal sounds of Dutch band Izah.  Fans of harder edged music should check out new French djent band Amber Sea as well as German progressive […] 

Prog Metal New Releases: Feb 17, 2015

More new prog metal albums for this week and we’ve got a pretty even mixture of melodic prog and heavy/doom metal with some wild tech metal thrown in for good measure!  Melodic metal fans have some awesome choices this week including the welcome return of Swedish melodic metal masters Seventh Dimension along with new albums from […] 

Album Review: Subterranean Masquerade – The Great Bazaar

As I keep saying, one of the BEST things about running a music webzine for a genre that I’m passionate about is that I get to become familiar with not only with all of the albums coming out these days but also the great ones that I somehow missed. Last week we mentioned the Australian […] 

Interview With Dan Swanö

Now this is a real dream come true! Getting to interview one of your musical heroes is such a treat and I recently got the chance to ask some questions from the legendary Swedish songwriter, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and sound engineer Dan Swanö.  I don’t have the time or space to list the man’s voluminous album credits but he’s […]

Equinox is a French Progressive Metal band who came to their debut with the well-received album The Cry of Gaia.  Even before hearing any of the music, some of you might already be intrigued by the visceral album title: Gaia is the spirit of the Earth, the glue that holds everything we know together – […]

Not a lot of albums this week, but some definite genre highlights – especially if you like modern sounding darker edged prog rock and metal.  Melodic metal fans can check out the amazing new album by Danish melodic metal meets djent band Vola, along with the debut of Indian band Defyd, Italian prog power band […] 

Album Review: The Evenfall – The Waiting Room

It’s not often that I get the chance to listen to music from Argentina, and I think this is the absolute first time that I’ve across an Argentinian progressive metal band! Admittedly, I don’t know much, if anything, of the local music scene, so when I am writing about The Evenfall, I can only relate […] 

The Tea Club – Tumbleweeds Acoustic Video

The Tea Club is a New Jersey based progressive alternative rock band that has been around since the mid-2000’s and have been producing some seriously excellent, intricately composed and produced music on their three released albums.  If you haven’t heard this band before, they’re one of the best modern American prog rock bands with a […] 

Album Review: Seven Year Storm – Aion I

Sean Lang is one busy dude! Not only does the Vancouver based metal drummer run a successful online drum instruction business, he apparently got the bug to start producing his own instrumental project under the moniker Seven Year Storm. Apparently the story goes that he created some music to go along with his drum instructions […]
