Re: I've just found an excellent obscure prog metal band of the 90s...

It's not prog metal - more of a prog rock style, but it's well done and worth being in a collection. Sometimes it's difficult the trace the line between prog rock and prog metal... The band is listed on https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Xerxes/833 So I guess it's not that far to prog metal if it...

I've just found an excellent obscure prog metal band of the 90s...

The band is called Xerxes from Switzerland. Albums: Beyond My Imagination (1993) Falling Leaves (1997) Falling Leaves is actually a promo CD for I guess a future official album that never saw the light of the day. Probably some people here already know them. Me, it's the first time I hear of them. I...

Re: Search found 0 matches: Huis

I now have their 2 CDs and I like this! I would say the first album is very good and the second is excellent but not as good as Mystery - Delusion Rain.
Some passages of the second album reminds me the album Sparrows by The Barstool Philosophers.

Re: Carisma / 1825 - revisited.

I agree that 1825 is their best but Larry you are a bit severe about the "In A Moonland" EP. To me, this is very good hard rock. It doesn't have the metal and the progressive touch of 1825 but I still like it very much. My car is a 2009 and it can read CD-RW disc of mp3. With a software, I...

2. I'm really stumped that the last Wolverine made nary a splash of noise around here - especially compared to Communication Lost. I waaaaay prefer it to CL.

To me, CG isn't a really heavy band but more of a melodic metal one with big prog influences. Doesn't mean it's not awesome though. :) It's true in general, but this particular song (Red Sharks) is more heavy than their other songs. But even this song is maybe not that heavy compare to these days h...

The best album of the 10s candidate (2010-2019)

So far, I have to go with Wolverine - "Communication Lost" (2011)
Very close is IQ - "The Road Of Bones" (2014), the music is as good, but for the connection with the lyrics, I have to go with Wolverine - CL.
