Psychotic Waltz is Back
2010-09-17 by Trey Spencer STAFF | 11 Comments
Psychotic Waltz, the progressive metal band from San Diego, California, has officially reunited.

The band features the entire original line-up except for guitarist Dan Rock. In his place is guitarist Steve Cox, who has toured with the band in the past.



Psychotic Waltz 2010:

- Devon Graves (a.k.a. Buddy Lackey) - Vocals
- Brian McAlpin - Guitar
- Steve Cox - Guitar
- Ward Evans - Bass
- Norman Leggio - Drums

Psychotic Waltz's last studio album, Bleeding, was released in 1996. After a short tour that ended in a closed down single-room bar/club, the band split.

Dan Rock recorded two psychedelic/progressive instrumental albums under the name Darkstar with keyboardist Siggi Blasey.

Norm Leggio and Steve Cox started the band, Teabag. Teabag started out as a hardcore/progressive hybrid before changing directions and moving towards a more traditional progressive route.

Buddy Lackey formed Deadsoul Tribe and has released several albums over the years.

They should do something about the band's official site as well, although this is not a priority at the moment.

Getting an album to the streets is the thing right now.


@ Trey i've been looking for that Teabag album, but it seems that it's completely erased from this planet.

Have you listened to it?

I actually had both versions of the album, the hardcore style one and the progressive metal one. I personally liked the one with the version with the harsh shouts better. The progressive vocalist on the second version came from a Judas Priest cover band and I could never get into it as much. Anyway, when I moved back to the US from England both copies disappeared.

^ Brian McAlpin has been working at a Guitar Center in the SD area for years.

And yeah, this is great news. Infinitely more exciting than when it was announced without Devon included. It will be interesting to see what direction the music takes. Hopefully, it's more technical/progressive like the first two albums rather than continuing where Bleeding left off. Not that I don't like that stuff too. Most the members' post-PW material leaned that direction so it wouldn't be necessary to reform the old band just to make the same type of music. We'll see.

I do hope Devon's Shadow Theory project is still in the works though.

I didn't know he worked there. I can tell you that the new song that they played at the very last show before they split was heavier than the stuff on Bleeding. It was like Bleeding meets Politics of Ecstasy.

This song or was there more new stuff at the last show? - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zOeW4m8BxY


Wouldn't be opposed to hearing more of that. Either way, I doubt they'll still be in the place musically as they were 12 years ago. I'm sure I'll love whatever comes out. They haven't failed yet.

I don't know if that's the song I heard or not. I remember it being more aggressive but it's been a long time and the concert is obviously going to be more intense than a YouTube video.
