Re: New Seventh Wonder tune

Yes it''s tough to dismiss something as good as SW because of production issues....... and listening for what it is, is certainly the right way to go ......... and it's also true, who the hell makes music like this anymore, and is this good at it ? So I think it's the glass half full concept instead...

Re: Brainstorm / Midnight Ghost........

I don't think many here are too into Brainstorm anymore......

Re: Polyphia - New Levels New Devils

****Claus - I'm curious - what are you listening on ? Reason I ask is because I'm hearing the bass issues on the SW (or lack of), but some people aren't .....

Re: Polyphia - New Levels New Devils

So taking into account a somewhat refreshed distinction between "P" and "p" progressive...here's one that's absolutely in the latter. The new Polyphia is arguably more groove jazz than metal, but damn is it a stellar slab of music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_gkpYORQLU htt...

EDIT: John Mitchell produced it and does a guest spot. Cool. *** That explains why it sounds so good ....... this has a monster production.
