Psychotic Waltz

Formed in El Cajon, California back in 1986, Psychotic Waltz were at the forefront of the original progressive metal movement. Taking influence in equal doses from metal and classic rock, the band stormed onto the scene with the release of their debut album A Social Grace in 1990. Highly praised in Europe, and named Album Of The Month by magazines such as Rock Hard and Metal Hammer, the album quickly put the band on the map.

Formed in El Cajon, California back in 1986, Psychotic Waltz were at the forefront of the original progressive metal movement. Taking influence in equal doses from metal and classic rock, the band stormed onto the scene with the release of their debut album A Social Grace in 1990. Highly praised in Europe, and named Album Of The Month by magazines such as Rock Hard and Metal Hammer, the album quickly put the band on the map.

Over the next 6 years the band would release 3 more albums (Into The Everflow, Mosquito and Bleeding), tour Europe numerous times, and built up quite a solid fanbase. Their trademarked dual guitar harmonies and leads were held down by a rock-solid rhythm section, and distinctive vocals. The band split up not long after the release of their last record, and the members took on other interests (vocalist Buddy Lackey, then known as Devon Graves, released several records with his band Dead Soul Tribe, and recently debuted his new band The Shadow Theory).After enough urging from all sides and a demand from the public, the band decided to reform earlier in 2010. All 5 original members (Devon Graves, guitarists Dan Rock and Brian McAlpin, bassist Ward Evans and drummer Norm Leggio) agreed to take part in the reunion, and enormous interest landed the band the middle slot on the Power Of Metal tour, supporting Nevermore and Symphony X, which surpassed even the band’s expectations. The band play Bang Your Head and Zwarte Cross festivals in July, and later in 2011 will begin writing a new studio album, for which several international labels have already submitted offers.
