Threshold

Threshold formed as a Progressive Metal band from the UK in 1988, initially playing covers of metal groups like Ratt and Testament. As they continued playing together, they began to write their own songs, and eventually stopped playing covers all together. In 1992, they signed their first record deal, and after adding vocalist Damian Wilson to the group alongside guitarists Karl Groom and Nick Midson, bassist Jon Jeary and drummer Tony Grinham, produced their first recording. Shortly afterwards, keyboardist Richard West joined the band.

Threshold formed as a Progressive Metal band from the UK in 1988, initially playing covers of metal groups like Ratt and Testament. As they continued playing together, they began to write their own songs, and eventually stopped playing covers all together. In 1992, they signed their first record deal, and after adding vocalist Damian Wilson to the group alongside guitarists Karl Groom and Nick Midson, bassist Jon Jeary and drummer Tony Grinham, produced their first recording. Shortly afterwards, keyboardist Richard West joined the band.

The band's debut album, Wounded Land, was released in 1993, taking its name and some thematic elements from Stephen R. Donaldson's novel of the same name. Wilson was unavailable to join the band for the followup tour, and so Glynn Morgan was recruited to replace him. He sang on the band's 1994 recording, Psychedelicatessen, which spawned the band's first music video for the song "Innocent". The following year, Morgan and the band toured Europe and recorded some of their performances for the short live album, Livedelica.

Before their next effort, Morgan and then-drummer Jay Micciche left the band. Rather than finding an unknown singer to replace him, the band turned again to Damian Wilson, and together they recorded 1997's Extinct Instinct. Wilson was unavailable for their next album, so vocalist Andrew "Mac" McDermott, joined to record Clone and would remain with them until 2007.

In 2001, Threshold released Hypothetical, which saw Johanne James firmly cemented as the band's permanent drummer. Another lineup change occurred in 2003, when bassist Jon Jeary left and was replaced by Steve Anderson.

In 2006, Threshold joined Nuclear blast records and released Dead Reckoning, which spawned a music video for the song 'Pilot In The SkyOf Dreams'. In July 2007 vocalist Mac left the band and original singer Damian Wilson returned as Threshold's frontman.

Recently, the band released the best of compilation "The Ravages of Time" (2007) and a limited edition eight-disc singles box set,including rare songs entitled "Paradox".

Threshold is.
