Re: Some smaller releases I missed from last year.....

While I know all of those styles aren't exactly board favorites, I'm surprised that some of them didn't generate any discussion at all. Either I'm out of touch or this board just doesn't give a shit about the little guys anymore. XpressivE, Seven Thorns, Sancrosanct, & Nine Miles Down are all qu...

Re: Checking out people's 2018 lists of favorites...

The problem for me was the vocalist quit before it was even released. That sucked the wind right out of the sails.

Re: Apparently Warkings wasn’t enough ...

I see a big difference here. Warkings is a serious attempt at jumping on the popularity of the masked/power metal genre. They are pushing it, touring, etc. I didn't care for it, but I don't think the label views this as a joke. Cash grab, sure. The other is just Christopher getting really drunk and ...

Digital Ruin did a 4 song demo for Dwelling in the Out when they were shopping for a label. Those versions destroyed the final versions on the album.

Re: New Evergrey album

I enjoy Nos' writing and his reviews. He sticks to his guns and is brutally honest in what he feels. You just have to keep his tastes in perspective. I pay attention when he critiques pop and melodic rock. That's his wheelhouse and he is spot on. However, with prog and power, he's basically the anti...

Dilemma- Random Acts of Liberation

This one is more for the Larry D/wuss kind of crowd. It's melodic prog rock that fits somewhere between Enchant and Porcupine Tree.

I'm with SEK. It's not Kingcrow production perfection, but it's not St. Anger Part 2 either. I enjoy it for what it is as opposed to what it is not. If there was a prolific amount of this type of music being made currently, perhaps I'd be more Clausian with my listens.

Speaking of Poets....

If prog fans heard this song without knowing who it was or any preconceived notions, I'd bet my left nut that many would welcome it with open arms as an amazing unknown prog band.
