OPPOSITE EARTH were a progressive metal band well ahead of their time, as even a few publications that reviewed the album upon its initial release dubbed it “Cyber Metal”.
OE blended elements from Dream Theater, Rush, Metallica, Sabbath and Tool (unusual for the time) to create a gloomy, spacy, crunchy, and, complex style of metal all their own. If you jump ahead a few years (“Headspace” was issued in September of 1997 in the US through Progressive Arts Music & InsideOut Music in Europe) and you hear bands such as Dream Theater, Fates Warning, Threshold and others now blending doomy grooves a phrygian styled riffs/melodies into their music, elements that much of the prog-metal community could not stomach at the time.
