Re: The Forgotten Heroes of Prog Metal Thread

The SANVOISEN post from last week really got me thinking about all those amazing prog metal bands that were the basis for all our discussions here - those bands without whom most of us wouldn't care so deeply for the genre.

Digital Ruin - Listen I just went back and listened to that disc. That was a disc that I really loved back then. However, listening to it now didn't really go over that well - in fact it sounds "old". We've obviously come a long way in terms of production since then :) I also feel that th...

Re: New Riverside in September....

Pretty different as you'd expect. The heavy section at about 3 minutes in is killer, although the somewhat technical solo is going to be hard to acclimate to. You can definitely feel Grudzien isn't there anymore and time will tell whether the world can overlook that. Pretty much my exact thoughts a...

I could not picture in my head what this would sound like. The description is on the money. Lol Musically it’s pretty cool, but the vocals ruin it for me.
