Yeah - Excellent stuff! Singer was on the recent DreamChild release and still has quite a Dio vibe going on.

Re: another new Darkwater song.... A New Beginning

80 minutes is a long time to demand your attention.


I'd have to go with the more for your money theory here. Also, if it's truly prog metal it should demand your attention and probably needs to be listened to with headphones to absorb all the intricacies.

Re: another new Darkwater song.... A New Beginning

Definitely another excellent song! I look forward to hearing 70+ minutes from them. It's funny to see discussions about a Prog Metal release being too long :? . Typically when a band is prog - songs are longer because they do not follow the standard song formula. Loved the comment from T'ski on your...

Re: 2018 top however many (I'm too lazy to count)

Between the Buried and Me - Automata A fantastic followup to Coma Ecliptic indeed. I love all the quirky pieces so much.
Haken - Vector My only quibble is the length, which could be a bit more substantial.


My thoughts exactly on these two.

Re: My Top 10+

Nice list! We agree on 7 of the top 13. Hago was fighting for top 10 with me, but ended up 13.

Checking out your #2. Waiting for something major I missed. This might be it.

Funny I love the last Maestrick and skimmed the new one and never explored further. Might have to now.

Always enjoy your list and comments. Looks like 5/11 the same for us. 6/12 for Larry and I. Awaiting lists from Todd S and Tom C which also seem to check out quite a bit of the same stuff.

I will agree with the comments that the singer should not go into high range, nor try to sustain same .......but that's kept to a minimum.


Blah! Other than maybe the melody line for track 4 which is all high - the singers high range is fine. :roll:

While I've only listened to the new Haken once, it didn't hit me quite as strong as I had hoped. This one blew me away from the first listen. Much prefer it over their last release which I ended up liking, but Affinity was a major disappointment IMO compared to the Mountain and Vector. Right now I ...
