Re: Time, the Valuator - How Fleeting How Fragile

Took me 60 seconds to sample and go buy it at their bandcamp page. Thanks for the heads up! Did their bandcamp vanish or do I just suck at the internet today? The single posted before was quite good. I can't wait to try out the full album. You suck. :P https://timethevaluator.bandcamp.com/releases ...

USPS finally found my package and delivered it today. This is on my listening list for tomorrow. Based on the glowing reviews so far I should be in for a treat.

Re: MICHAEL ROMEO - War Of The Worlds Pt. 1

I'd just like to add that "Believe" is fucking awesome. It could have fit seamlessly on "V." It's old school SX at it's finest. Having just received my copy and after getting through the solo of Believe I have to say yeah...definitely could've been V material. It's got that clas...

Re: New Plini EP - Sunhead

I think the first two songs on Handmade Cities are some of the best jazz-fusion prog you'll ever hear, and a good deal of the remaining album is of a similar standard. Sunhead is a very good follow-up, and despite what some people say is still plenty hefty enough for me. "Kind" is my favo...

New Plini EP - Sunhead

Absolutely incredible. Super jazzy with plenty of shreddy chops on display. I don't think Plini knows how to make non-amazing music.

Re: Have we already talked about the neo-prog band Anubis from Australia?

Everyone seems to confuse this band with the Danish Anubis Gate who sound totally different! A Tower of Silence is among PA's highest ranked neo-prog albums ever. I really enjoyed that disc and their more recent one The Second Hand is also fantastic. You may know the guitarist as Douglas Skene of H...

Re: Distorted Harmony - A Way Out

Thinking about it a little more there's a lot on this album that feels like nods to greater and lesser known tech and prog bands of the last 20 years or so. I hear a myriad of sections that feel immediately familiar...but in someone else's context. The aforementioned Nevermore on Room 11, pieces of ...

Re: Distorted Harmony - A Way Out

Have had the album for several days and a handful of playthroughs now...it's really good. They've got a fairly wide range of styles going on, and they're all well delivered. Room 11 has a kind of Dreaming Neon Black vibe to it with the haunting sliding vocal delivery that really makes me smile.

You don't like thrash? Do you like death metal? Black metal? Old stuff like Sepultura? Even Metallica? I'm curious... The only thrash I actually like is Megadeth.
