Re: Glynn Morgan returns to THRESHOLD!

The status quo for Threshold is still really good music. The "realize this and make adjustments" issue I have with the song is that it basically doesn't showcase Glynn's originality and other strengths at all. The album was evidently designed for Damian instead and the only real glimpses ...

Sadly, the genre is indeed dying ............ either that or we haven't dug deep enough to dig out some of these bands that haven't seen the light of day yet. But I doubt that's the case. Once After Forever called it quits, it seems that the life went out of the genre completely and it just stopped ...
