Lost In Thought - Renascence

Hi Everyone, I was given the distinct privilege of being the first to review the new, long-awaited return of UK prog metal band, Lost In Thought. 'Renascence' is a brilliant return and I hope my review piques your interest and/or brings them a few new fans! https://manofmuchmetal.com/2018/11/02/lost...

Re: New Seventh Wonder tune

So far, I'm on the fence with this. I like some of the songs, others through just seem to spoil the flow. The production isn't great either, so I'm seriously torn. Review to follow as soon as possible now that I've bought a copy - I've had to wait because I can't be dealing with stream only promos!

Ghost Ship Octavius - Delirium

Hi Everyone, Question: why is this band not more popular? Ok, so I know the answer sadly, but it's still insane - Matthew Wicklund on guitar, Van Williams on drums for heaven's sake & a killer vocalist in Adon Fanion...madness, I tell you. The new album, 'Delirium', is absolutely superb too - ch...
