Re: The Forgotten Heroes of Prog Metal Thread

The Barstool Philosophers - Sparrows (2009) Fantastic debut from this Dutch band, then they just disappeared for years. They did have a second release with a variety of vocalists but I just couldn't bring myself to get it after the original vocalist, Leon Brouwer, left the band. Maybe someone's hea...

Re: Little haul in from The Lasers Edge .......

I’m really enjoying the Hekz too! Some of the music is a bit more straightforward at times and they seemed to make a conscious effort to focus on the melodies. The second track and some parts of the album seem more commercial in a way, but at the same time the complexity and performances are turned ...

Inner Space - prog metal fusion instrumental

Wish they had some more samples available, but it's an interesting concept and an international project. One participant is the keyboardist from Icefish.

Worth checking out if you like instrumental stuff.

Animal Drive - an Ark Burn the Sun vibe going on

...at least in the chorus 8) Their bio says they have some progressive rock leanings...hmmm...not too sure, but only this one track from the new album is available thus far. Kick ass Jorn/Coverdale sounding vocalist. Really young band from Croatia on Frontiers label...release date in February. https...

Jono - “Life” - great vocalist

I saw a comment that the vocalist has some Midnight similarities and I agree. I also hear some Dio-esque phrasing and even some Freddie Mercury on the earlier Jono albums on Spotify. If the whole new album “Life” is like this track should be a promising release. https://youtu.be/tf4dQonWuIM?list=RDt...

Dark Avenger - The Beloved Bones: Hell

Cool stuff from Dark Avenger. I only had their previous album, "Tales of Avalon: The Lament" which was solid but this new one is a step up in heaviness. Has shades of Crimson Glory and early Anubis Gate at times in the music. This is part 1 of a 2 part concept. Excellent vocalist. Cool alb...

Re: Shawn Ames - Bishops and Thieves

I search for information on this guy ( and Lord Bane/Morpheus ) from time-to-time and I guess he finally resurfaced. In the early 00's Shawn Ames started a new solo-project, Morpheous, and recorded what was supposed to be a new album, titled 'The Needle's Eye', that however was not released. Newest...
