  • Snowdog808 Thanks a lot Omair! I heard about this band's new album before, and I will certainly have to listen to Congregation completely very soon. This single sounds cool for sure!
    May 29 10:52 AM
  • NeroCorleone80 Ive heard Bilateral a few times. Havent been in a prog metal mood (or any prog mood for that matter) for a while though.
    May 29 06:47 AM
  • PistolPete And where the hell is Spag at, he's MIA in the thread. Has he seriously not listened to it yet? Man the anticipation would break me by now.
    May 28 11:04 PM
  • PistolPete Yeah I agree, not enough hype. But then again Leprous isn't the most well known band here. I mean the only reason I heard about them is because you recommended them to me. I don't remember seeing a featured review for "Coal" in 2013 when that came out. Whatever though, those who are listening to it seem to enjoy it.
    May 28 11:03 PM
  • SitarHero Haha! I'm gonna jam the album while I work, gimme a few minutes to get the lyrics right.
    May 28 07:31 PM
  • NeroCorleone80 Jam Eyehategod. The definitive sludge band
    May 28 02:42 PM
  • Geadom It's decent. Generally speaking it's a good song, but for SYM X standards i am not impressed.
    May 28 10:26 AM
  • PistolPete "The Cloak" has gotta be one of my favorites, that chorus is heavenly. Some female vocalists couldn't even hit that note.
    May 27 11:56 PM
  • dbizzles Nice. I'll check it out. Thanks for the direction.
    May 27 05:13 PM
  • dbizzles So, I think I like Coal more than Bilateral so far. How is the debut?
    May 27 03:47 PM
  • PistolPete Agreed, most of the music I've liked over the past year have been albums I had to get to know a bit and have them grow on me, more rewarding that way. Has your opinion on it changed since you wrote the review?
    May 27 02:42 PM
  • Parallels hey man nice to see you too :) yeah i cant stand that album. one of the worst prog albums ever imo. if this site had a 0 rating i would still rate it a 1 tho cause theres a few ok moments
    May 27 12:04 AM
  • PistolPete I love the album overall but the final songs are a tad weak. The more I listen though the more variety I hear which I didn't get at first. Not the easiest album to digest but so worth it. The entire first half of the album rips me a new one every time.
    May 26 11:26 PM
  • Spag I think Einar's lying. I picture him verbally abusing his band mates and saying "I am the band!'
    May 26 11:11 PM
  • Spag I'm reading right now! Very good questions you asked.
    May 26 08:32 PM
  • Mythodea I haven't given Symphony X any decent attention yet. Spock's Beard and the other one you mentioned, I don't know about them (what kind of prog fan am I???) You've told me Votum would release a new album this year, but I couldn't find any info. Riverside of course, I can't wait 4 more months! Have you listened to Pure Reason Revolution's debut album? It's excellent.
    May 26 05:35 PM
  • theChickenCow Thanks for the welcome! Will know where to post from now on :PGratz for the front page review as well.
    May 26 03:37 PM
  • PistolPete Oh yeah I know! Been dissecting the album all morning while at work. Over an hour of new Leprous songs, very pumped. Good review btw, I have a feeling I'll have a similar reaction to it.
    May 26 12:24 PM
  • Mythodea Hey, Omair, long time no see (write,to be precise!) Now, the new Leprous album needs time. And no matter how much I love some of the songs, it feels much restrained and a bit too much on the synth side. I wouldn't like a Bilateral ptII, but Coal was not that either and I liked it a lot. Anyhow, there are times I want to give it a 4 and others I think I should leave it were it is. It's a tough album, that's for sure. I hope it's rewarding as well! On other news, what's up?
    May 26 05:12 AM
  • Spag Yeah, Chris Salinas is a huge Queensryche fans so it makes sense. He did an incredible job with Zero Hour too.Congrats on the feature man, you deserve it. One of these days I want to write a review but chances are it will suck ass.
    May 25 10:32 PM
  • Spag Oh nice. Power of Omens are fantastic. Eyes of the Oracle is one of my favorite prog metal albums ever. :]
    May 25 10:15 PM
  • Frippertronics will do
    May 25 09:43 PM
  • Frippertronics featured brotha
    May 25 09:39 PM
  • Frippertronics they do, it just takes time
    May 25 09:38 PM
  • Frippertronics no problemo
    May 25 08:46 PM
  • Frippertronics yeah and yes

    May 25 08:37 PM
  • Spag give yours a read though* bloody hell I can't type!
    May 25 07:58 PM
  • Spag Oh nice. I say post it whenever you feel like it, no rush. I'll definitely gives your read though.
    May 25 07:57 PM
  • Spag I assumed wanted to check the leak lol. It's all good! I'm still ashamed that I spoiled the new Arcturus for myself. I only heard 2 new Leprous tracks and I have 10 more to go. Gonna order from Amazon and hope I get all 12. (They don't have anything listed as 'special edition' at the moment.)
    May 24 06:51 AM
  • Snowdog808 Yeah I miss the keyboards being in the spotlight a whole lot, and I think more of the band members should work on the compositions than just Romeo. I liked Iconoclast but agree with you that it was rather one-dimensional by their standards, considering their later 90s releases and early 2000s albums. The single definitely reminded me of Paradise Lost way more than the Odyssey as well, even though LePond has said in an interview that Underworld will sound a lot like a mix of the two.
    May 23 03:46 PM
  • Snowdog808 Thanks a lot for the link Omair! Honestly I really liked the new single after I looked it up last night. I'm so excited for what Romeo and company have in store for us for the rest of the album.
    May 23 09:27 AM
  • Spag I'll try and find time to give it a full listen, there's some other stuff I want to check out before though. :)Disillusion, Orphaned Land etc.
    May 22 09:00 PM
  • Spag Listening to it now, sounds good so far.
    May 22 08:53 PM
  • Spag I checked just to see if it was. I was dying to see Pixel's track length (5:15). The whole album is 70mins!
    May 21 02:29 AM
  • Spag Getmetal.org has the new Leprous album, it leaked! I'm gonna wait to buy it though of course. :]
    May 21 12:24 AM
  • Spag Yeah! I'm gonna order it soon. I'll buy the new Arcturus eventually too. :]
    May 18 07:54 PM
  • Spag http://www.amazon.co.uk/Congregation-Leprous/dp/B00X2VWK7K/ref=sr_1_1_twi_2_mus?ie=UTF8
    May 17 10:01 PM
  • Spag That was great. Very excited for the album. I have a feeling it'll be 4-4.5 for me. :]
    May 7 05:28 AM
  • NeroCorleone80 You in a sludge mood? I've heard it all
    May 6 07:36 AM
  • Friday13th Leprous is cool yeah, I still haven't heard a whole album but they're definitely on the to-listen list.
    May 6 12:19 AM
  • NeroCorleone80 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlbunmCbTBA
    May 5 08:48 PM
  • Robinanimate I see from your ratings that we pretty much agree on the leprous albums. All I can say about "The Congregation" was that it felt like "Coal - Part". I was expecting something fresh, being that all the previous albums are so different from each other. For those who loved "Coal" the new album will surely rule. Me, I'd rather give "Bilateral" a new spin. That one never gets old. By the way, the new Arcturus album is my favorite of the year so far. Highly recommendable.
    May 5 03:10 AM
  • Spag Also, I was disappointed with mostly everything in 2014. This year has been great so far for me. There's going to be a new Ihsahn soon I believe, along with a Borknagar and if the new Cynthesis comes out later this year I will have a heart attack. Nobody loves that band like do. Seriously.
    May 4 03:07 AM
  • Spag I found the whole track of Rewind to be great. That section at 3:46 gets me every time :)Baard is a beast, he's such a great addition to the band. He plays for Borknagar too I believe (who are also having a new album).
    May 4 03:06 AM
  • Spag Aw hell :(
    May 4 12:20 AM
  • Spag Well damn. I actually preferred Coal over TPS (both are great however) and I totally dig the new songs. But the other 10 tracks? Who knows what's in there... In a way I guess you can say (judging from The Price) that they may be playing it a little safe. :P But s***, I don't wanna jump to conclusions just yet. Nothing will stop me from digging this album. I'm pretty happy with music atm seeing how I just listened to the new Arcturus last night and it was awesome. Possibly my AOTY.
    May 3 11:33 PM
  • Spag Ahhh. I did notice that but I'm such a fanboy I don't think they could go wrong here. Really liked the addition of Baard on the album. And I know they won't top Bilateral ever... it's too perfect! :)
    May 2 11:21 PM
  • Spag Rewind is so good.
    May 1 03:43 PM
  • Spag Lol. I'm more worried about Arcturus honestly. 2 weeks until it releases and these dl links are laughing at me.
    May 1 06:44 AM
  • CosmicPie Ah, just life... pulling in all directions. I get on from time to time.
    April 29 09:16 PM
  • CosmicPie Yo, long time... you still cruising these domains?
    April 26 12:54 AM
  • Spag Oh yeah, Thor told me he was interviewing them. I don't consider a simpler approach to be a bad thing but I know they might never top Bilateral. I'm still really excited for this.
    April 23 08:24 PM
  • Spag https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-falVbVNeE Power of Omens maaaaan!
    April 23 03:15 AM
  • Spag Last fm is where I found the track times. :]
    April 23 03:13 AM
  • Spag Hey I saw the times on the new Leprous tracklist. There's isn't a single song over 8 minutes, interesting :o
    April 21 05:16 AM
  • Mythodea Hey mate, bored of the same ol' prog rock and prog metal? Not interested in the new prog scene? Want something new to try, which engulfes the old elements, tries new things and is proggy as hell? Want atmosphere? Want emotion? Want technicality? Try Anglagard - Viljans Oga, excellent Swedish Prog Rock. There's the whole album on YT. Tell me what you think of it.
    April 19 06:07 PM
  • Spag This is awesome. Gonna watch the whole thing right now. :)
    April 15 07:22 PM
  • Geadom Nice, i hope the new album is not as sucky as the last one (Sym X)
    April 15 02:04 PM
  • Spag Also dude I have a list of ****ing awesome s***. YOU REALLY NEED TO LISTEN TO DRAWN AND POWER OF OMENS. http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?memberid=725980
    April 9 06:25 PM
  • Spag Yeah. Einar's ego must be superb! I AM THE BAND! I downloaded the song will listen to it on repeat now. :)
    April 7 09:46 PM
  • Spag Yooo don't worry, remember singles are always SAFE. It's a safe song, the other tracks will make you diarrhea everywhere lol. :) This album is over 65 minutes which is the longest they've done too.
    April 7 08:37 PM
  • Spag https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0G9Qd_84YZsI COULDN'T JUST ****ING WAIT.
    April 7 07:42 PM
  • LilLioness Well, that is at least partially because I let the reviews themselves digest over a period of at least a week. I think Eisbrecher was my quickest reviews so far and the version I posted took several hours. And as far as my stories, there was an entire month between the second and third. And it has been over a month since the third and the fourth is still not done.
    April 2 11:53 PM
  • Spag Lol yeah. This is going to be the biggest challenge of my life. :]
    April 2 11:29 PM
  • LilLioness You are welcome to reciprocate (if you haven't) ;P I shall keep my eyes open for it. And yeah, I figure part of the problem is that I don't engage sput enough and it is only fair to read my friends' reviews.
    April 2 11:25 PM
  • LilLioness Thank you. Yeah, that seems to be the consensus. As far as better known stuff goes, I am considering reviewing Sol Invictus and new Leprous when they come out. Besides those, I will stick to under appreciated stuff.
    April 2 10:36 PM
  • LilLioness Ah, so you don't dig? That is okay. Just be sure to check out my non-porn stuff as it comes out. :D I do very much enjoy writing it. It is a playground to learn what I can and can't do. And I love floating the line between ****ed up and acceptable. How about mah reviews?
    April 2 12:32 AM
  • LilLioness So what did you think?
    April 1 10:45 PM
  • Spag Lol yeah, it's gonna be hard to do. I couldn't do it for Arcturus. But I'm determined! The wipe is because I haven't listened to certain albums in a long time and I'm not sure how to rate others. I'm going to rate what I'm certain would be my score. :) I'm attacking typical stupid staff core so they wipe my s***.
    March 30 08:08 PM
  • Spag Why the hell would that experimental tag be removed? :\
    March 30 07:00 PM
  • Spag I'm eager as all hell. I know I won't love it like Bilateral, but I'm sure it'll be a 9/10. I want to buy it without hearing a single song though. Think I could do it? lol. :] Also I'm 1ing a bunch of albums so my ratings get wiped again. I figured Converge and Death Grips would be best to launch my assault!
    March 30 06:46 PM
  • Spag That Leprous album has 12 tracks. A bonus track is on there. Holy s***!

  • TheSpaceMan haha no worries, just thought you'd appreciate that album more then you do... and yeah holy diver is obvious s***, its a joke rating (;
    March 24 06:51 PM
  • TheSpaceMan 3 for innerspeaker? D:
    March 24 01:22 AM
  • Mythodea Soen are a bit weird at first but some of their moments are really rewarding. They need time and they suffer from the same desease as Votum: the voice needs time. Anyway, I jammed their albums a lot a month ago, but I can't remember much, I think it says something. I was asking about where you live because I thought you lived in Pakistan.
    March 22 06:14 AM
  • Torontonian ya, unfortunately he's only half god.
    March 21 11:14 PM
  • LilLioness Well, it is not easy. It requires a lot of backtracking as I find a lot of what I write is irrelevant or untrue upon further inspection. I wrote a large chunk of my first April review this morning and had to half of it because what I was saying was outright false. Fiction writing can be equally frustrating.
    March 21 10:59 PM
  • Mythodea Almost forgot. I was on youtube,nwatching video footage from Leprous recording Bilateral and found your account. Do you live in Toronto?
    March 21 04:59 AM
  • Mythodea Wow, you flooded me with info! Hah, well, gray and dark blue would be interesting, but the image of feverish red and sick yellow with black scattered all over has stuck in my mind. Guess we'll find out soon, haha. Votum's a thing, first time I didn't like them much, now I find them to be good, on the third listen maybe I'll love them, who knows? Have you heard Soen? They're a blend of Tool and Opeth on their debut but their second one is quite good.
    March 21 04:58 AM
  • Mythodea Votum's Harvest Moon is better than I remembered it to be. Still not taken by storm, though the song ''Steps in the Gloom'' is soooo good! When did you say their new album is coming out?
    March 20 05:55 PM
  • Torontonian agreed. I think he just needs to do something as long as its in collaboration. Everything that goes up must go down at some point i guess. I still think he's one of the most talented musicians out there.
    March 20 03:52 PM
  • Mythodea Riverside won't disappoint (fingers crossed). I think they'll return to a SLS style, but a bit mellower. Anyway, I want them to be progressive, not progressive rock in particular. Also, for a reason, I imagine the cover of the new album to be Red and black with a bit yellow. Weird?
    March 20 05:40 AM
  • LilLioness Thank you! It is good to hear that my reviews haven't fallen on deaf ears. :) The next will be at the end of the month and I want to continue the 3 a month thing for as long as I can push myself to do it.
    March 19 06:53 PM
  • LilLioness You wanna read? :3 Should we exchange emails, because I don't know if I can drop links to NSFW sites on here.
    March 19 06:51 PM
  • Torontonian ya,i agree wholeheartedly. i think Wilson has kind of hit a creative slump. Who can blame him though, he's released so much damn material its unreal. Collaborating as a group instead of doing everything himself would do him some good. Plus i think PT has much better musicians tbh. I've never been much of a fan of Guthrie Guvens style. And no one beats Edwin on the bass or harrison on the drums either in my opinion.
    March 19 05:03 PM
  • Torontonian ya dude, 2015 looks promising indeed. Looking forward to riverside in particular. And i don't think H.C.E was bad either, i just think he's done much much better. That medulla rating is spot on btw.
    March 19 04:19 PM
  • Mythodea I was listening to Leprous today, the last two albums. Good stuff. Wait to see their next step, I believe it's going to be great. But for me, this year exists only for Riverside.
    March 19 02:04 PM
  • Geadom Curiously enough, yesterday i was jamming The Oddysey and Paradise Lost
    March 19 12:59 PM
  • LilLioness Been focusing on writing. You may have noticed I have written 2 reviews lately. If you haven't, I intend to do reviews three times a month with them posted on Sundays. Most of my writing time, however, has been spent on my erotic fiction and cultivating an audience.
    March 19 12:10 AM
  • Torontonian Positive ratings*... Damn phone
    March 18 10:17 PM
  • Torontonian Either*
    March 18 10:16 PM
  • Torontonian Damn, nit many positivtins lately. I agree with the H.C.E one tho, wasn't too impressed eithee
    March 18 10:15 PM
  • Mythodea didn't do much to you, did it? well, it's okay, I can't argue with you, so... Besides, the prog genre awaits trememndous releases this year, Riverside, Leprous and Votum! I hope for the Pain Of Salvation, but alas!, I know it's going to take time.
    March 18 07:54 PM
  • LilLioness Heyo
    March 18 06:40 PM
  • beefshoes I liked it a lot compared to his last album, but I totally get where you're coming from. I hope he starts taking some risks with his music in the future because I loved the atmosphere on the new record. It's just really predictable.

    March 2 03:34 PM
  • LunaticSoul Yeah I swear I will! I'm not in a huge prog phase at the moment, but since I plan to see them live this october I will deffo take them up again!
    February 27 06:01 AM
  • LunaticSoul yeah you got me ahah. I heard it when it came out and I probably wasn't open-minded enough to fully enjoy it. I've always wanted to come back to them, I even bought Bilateral when it came out and after 4 years it's still packaged!!! lol
    February 27 05:35 AM
  • Spag http://en.prophecy.de/shop/arcturus-arcturian.htmlI HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS SINCE 2011. ****ING YES
    February 26 06:57 PM
  • LunaticSoul Mmh the second is more of my thing and there is no riverside influence. Eeeeeh man there's a lot of modern prog metal that's actually pretty good, with amazing musicians in it. Disperse, David Maxim Micic, Plini, Skyharbor, Tesseract.. You'd probably enjoy some if not all of these bands. ;)

    February 22 02:37 PM
  • LunaticSoul Their second disc is much more groove-ish than the first one and definitely more experimental. I mean I like Mariusz but his presence on the first made it a sort of Riverside side project. Don't enjoy djent? I was sort of forced to listen to it due to my girlfriend's love (and my general despisal of) s***ty metalcore bands. Some of the bands labelled under 'djent' it's a decent fusion of the two worlds (tech and core) but there's also some other great jazz/fusion influenced stuff that's great
    February 22 06:51 AM
  • Mythodea they definitely have potentials. The voice put me off a little, but the instrumentation was very good. Other than that, I haven't delved into them much, I had so many recs after the list I made, I had to ignore them a bit.....
    February 21 03:32 PM
  • Torontonian hows your job hunt going? still living in Toronto?
    February 21 11:57 AM
  • Torontonian haha ya i actually got quite a lot of s*** for it haha. and things are good! happy and healthy! I'm tired of where i live though, which is a suburb 30 min away from Indianapolis. Nothing to do and the fact that its a cultural wasteland doesn't help. But otherwise i really am good! thats why i want to study out of state whn i go to college, just gotta find out what i want to study hehe.
    February 21 11:56 AM
  • R6Rider lol indeed
    February 21 09:59 AM
  • LunaticSoul Yeaaaah I know Votum by name but haven't ever listened to a full disc for no valid reason. Btw yeah poland metal in general is pretty amazing. Some of the best prog-groove comes from there as well (Progmah-c and Indukti's second are a must) if you ever want to jump on the right side of the """"""djent"""""" world (both came out in 2008-9 when Periphery and their clones were still in their bedrooms) ps: we almost have the same number of ratings :D
    February 21 06:28 AM
  • Torontonian Awesome! And wow an idiot for that.
    February 20 11:52 PM
  • R6Rider Thanks Omair. Both of my profile pics were done by Ethan McCarthy of Primitive Man and Vermin Womb. That dude comes up with some f*cked up imagery.
    February 20 11:39 PM
  • Torontonian sup omair, check my jazz list. i think you'll be happy to see dixie dregds on there ;).
    February 20 10:55 PM
  • SitarHero Yup I'm gonna be here a while longer. One more semester to figure out the real world. Ugh. Not my favourite part for damn sure. What about you? And yeah the song's a bit...happier...than what I usually write, but I think some of the best riffs I've written.
    February 20 10:12 PM
  • SitarHero Yo yo! Life's aight. School is kicking my ass, but somehow I keep forgetting about that and going back. It's like a bad relationship, ya know? But I had a long break so I got to do a little riffing. Check it out! https://soundcloud.com/quantum-mystic/fight
    February 20 03:28 PM
  • Mythodea I knew he's done electronic music before, it's just that, now, that's not what's expected from him, under his official band. Anyway, I wait till the album comes out.. Have you heard Saor? Discovered them recently and they seem to hide interesting material, albeit their cunning resemblance to Opeth and Tool at times.
    February 20 03:01 PM
  • LunaticSoul nope, I'm Italian but I tend to like a lot of polish bands. And I also look polish but I speak like an italian. :v
    February 20 02:42 PM
  • makrand Did you apply for contrib promos?
    February 20 01:49 PM
  • Mythodea You're right,the song is quite different and I believe that, for once, he's stepped out of his comfort zone, making an albumunder his official band, without making a project one. Even if I'm not that keen on this kind of music I expect great things from him. Besides, in 2013 he put me into prog with TRTRTS, so maybe now I'll have the motive to check electronic and brit-pop!
    February 20 03:35 AM
  • Spag Aaah I see. Once the new Leprous, Ihsahn, Arcturus and Cynthesis (this one not might even be out 'til '16) all release... my life will be complete!
    February 20 03:05 AM
  • Spag Thanks for the heads up Omair. I'm so anxious about this album lol. In the next 2 weeks I have the new Code and Enslaved to check out too.
    February 19 08:31 PM
  • bloc LS never did much for me. I think that project is really boring. Ah true, you just reminded I need to give Leprous another go ;)

    February 18 09:24 PM
  • bloc A few months only? Isn't it coming out around August? But I actually don't mind if they abandon the hard rock stuff completely, because they really kill it when it comes to smooth and slow stuff. Of course they kill it when they heavy as well, but ugh Celebrity Touch left a really bad taste in my mouth...
    February 18 08:46 PM
  • denislg Hello there! It's been a very long time since you've established first contact with me and recommended me some Riverside and Leprous at that time. I'd just like to do justice to your kindness and thank you for that. Have a nice week man!
    February 18 01:39 PM
  • Spag The first track he heard was Bilateral just like me. But on that cold ass night in Nov '11 when I first heard it, I knew I needed to hear the whole album the next night and so I did. Was faaantastic. :D
    February 13 08:19 PM
  • aggelosm I've stopped using last.fm a long time ago. so these riverside tracks are ooooold :P
    February 12 09:17 AM
  • Spag One of my friends heard Bilateral recently and loves it lol. I was telling him! He heard both that and Devin Townsend's "Ocean Machine" ... I always said "best things ever" without joking lol. :P
    February 11 09:12 PM
  • cb123 Will do man!! I had no idea they released a follow up to Metafiction! haha bit slack on my part
    February 11 07:21 PM
  • Mythodea Yeah, definitely, having good things to wait for is always nice.
    February 11 01:26 PM
  • Titan Out of the ones you mentioned, Riverside and Leprous. Steven Wilson is done. And i wish I had hair that could blow in that wind :D
    February 11 11:17 AM
  • Torontonian Ya riverside should be good!
    February 11 08:51 AM
  • Titan Palm trees and 65 degree winters. I'm applying to jobs down there bro.
    February 10 06:07 PM
  • Mythodea At least we'll have something to long for. Your statement reminds me when, in March 2012, I was thinking, ''Damn, Kamelot's next album comes in October. How am I going to wait for so long??'' Now two years have passed by and I feel kinda weird:/ Time flies, as SW says. So, unfortunately (?) the albums will be out in no time. Bah, don't know what's up with me, bad night, I suppose!!
    February 10 05:22 PM
  • aggelosm yeap yeap yeap... and I'm digging vulnicura by the goddess
    February 10 10:01 AM
  • Torontonian haha, no big deal, i'm sure you'll be fine. you're a smart guy. You looking forward to the new steve wilson? i really can't say i am, i REALLY disliked the t/t. plus the whole concept kinda seems like a thick as a brick knockoff, just slightly more modern...
    February 9 06:15 PM
  • Spag I saw on facebook lol. Looking forward to this as well as the new Enslaved, Arcturus, Abnormal Thought Patterns, God of Atheists, Atheist, Borknagar...and a some others lol. Last year was a disappointment for me but this year is looking better for me music wise.
    February 9 05:44 PM
  • Titan ahh yes, getting hired is usually the hardest part. keep your foot on that gas pedal baby! as for me, i want to move to Florida :D
    February 9 01:42 PM
  • Mythodea I'm concerened about SW's release but I think whatever he does, whatever direction he takes, it'll be quality work. DT have become the retards of prog. Nobody in here expects much, but,hey, at least we can say another DT is out. Don't worry about Riverside. I think that Mariusz was kidding, either way though, they deserve our trust. Closing, LEPROUS! m/ m/ This LP will def slay.
    February 9 01:01 PM
  • Titan things are good bro, glad everything is ok with you......done with school?
    February 9 08:04 AM
  • Mythodea Well I was concerned because you were gone for two whole months, without warning. I thought, maybe an accident, maybe an illness. It could be minor, or it could be major! Anyway, good to have you back. Now, as for prog releases this year, it's going to be a good year, indeed. SW's new album will be a challenge and the same goes with DT. As for the others, I have great expectations!

    February 8 08:47 PM
  • Titan at least i now know where i stand on the totem pole :(
    February 8 08:16 PM
  • Torontonian haha my bad. so you got a job and everything already?
    February 8 06:34 PM
  • TheSpaceMan sounds like a dream, its obviously just the CD master but the warmth from the grooves and needle really help with atmosphere of the album, makes it feel more vintage sounding if you know what i mean
    February 8 06:19 PM
  • Torontonian i've been pretty well. been slacking hard in school though haha, and its my junior year which is the most important, but whatevs, luckily i can do alright without much effort. R u done with college yet dude?
    February 8 05:54 PM
  • Frippertronics I wonder where Micah is now...
    February 8 05:51 PM
  • Torontonian And nice grouper rating, that bitch is so over hyped.

  • Torontonian How have u been?
    February 8 05:47 PM
  • Torontonian Nm man been listening to alot of genesis and hackettWhere the hell did u go?

  • TalonsOfFire People were wondering where you were in Riverside threads and someone made a list asking where you were a little while ago haha
    February 8 04:28 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Where you been?
    February 3 04:57 PM
  • Mythodea Hello once again, OmairSh!Where have you been, my friend? I'm a bit worried, you should know.
    January 29 02:45 AM

    December 4 09:36 PM
  • KjSwantko Haha no shame in that bro. A lot of real cool themes and feelings of darkness on that record.
    December 1 09:40 PM
  • Shuyin we grow strong and trve
    December 1 04:57 PM
  • KjSwantko *echoing bend*.......love that song. "Don't have the right, but say they dooooo........the shocking truuuuuuuuuuuuuuth"
    November 30 06:31 PM
  • KjSwantko Yeah agreed, both vids have definitely garnered them some new exposure
    November 28 07:22 PM
  • KjSwantko Song def rules hard but I'm disappointed with the video. Its basically the same shots from King of Errors just rearranged lol. A few shots even are the exact same.
    November 28 07:40 AM
  • CaptainDooRight Pre legit nig
    November 28 03:54 AM
  • EvoHavok Oh, cool video. Also nice they did one for a longer track.
    November 26 01:34 PM
  • undertakerpt But what about 6,8,9 and 10?????!
    November 25 10:24 AM
  • CaptainDooRight Will def check nig once I get back from this camp trip
    November 25 03:09 AM
  • Mad. Looks s1k bro will try and check some of em out
    November 24 05:37 AM
  • Onirium I kind of really really liked ADToE when it came out, and although it has grown off me a lot over the years, I still think it was their best since 6Deg to be honest. So yeah, they might still have great stuff to give us. I think, maybe, someday they'll get the feeling that it's the end, they'll give everything they have to make the greatest album they can and do an epic final world tour. But for now, at this very moment, they're probably just jamming in the studio over some s***ty wankery riff;)
    November 23 09:32 PM
  • p4p aight i'll check it out
    November 23 09:26 PM
  • p4p dude i've been meaning to get into Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan but don't know where to start
    November 23 12:02 AM
  • Torontonian https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rLxN41avhY
    November 22 09:35 PM
  • Jethro42 Thanks for the interview, I'm gonna read it later, it's long enough! And the song featuring Khan and Eddie Vedder was sweet!
    November 22 03:09 PM
  • AStableReference I feel pretentious, but one of the songs I structured thematically around the lyrics which were supposed to be about the cycle civilization goes through with a sort of rise, fall and repeat with no clear end in sight. Trying to make everything work out without being cheesy.
    November 22 03:06 PM
  • AStableReference I had moods and themes in mind when writing the songs, but I often times feel silly when I try to talk about anything serious. Generally it's about stuff that was going on with me back in late 2010 through 2011. Basically about existential angst and then getting over it and moving on. Various themes based around that without feeling melodramatic or whiny. A more hopeful attitude.
    November 22 03:03 PM
  • NeroCorleone80 lol the last 3 albums I listened to weren't even metal. Anyway is everything on that list different- what styles does it contain
    November 22 01:20 PM
  • p4p wazsup
    November 22 10:23 AM
  • AStableReference Finally getting myself to sit down and force out some lyrics so that I can take vocal duties in to my own hands. Lyrics have been the biggest road block for me for ages. (And yes, I really need to invest in a decent winter coat like I never do)
    November 22 01:07 AM
  • MrSirLordGentleman You definitely got some interesting stuff here dude
    November 22 12:52 AM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Dude, Moray Naina sounds SOOOO good
    November 22 12:08 AM
  • Onirium Ugh... I think I read once, in my DT fanboyism years :p, that they got an album out every two years by "respect for their fans" and that they owed them that and blah blah blah. Retrospectively, I would have rather liked to see them accepting Portnoy's proposition, and have a badass comeback album this year or something. I just realized that their downfall could actually to be connected with that resolution of releasing an album every two years; they're doing that since Train of Thought...
    November 22 12:05 AM
  • Jethro42 Was Khan a witness of it all? Also I edited my last comment in case you haven't see.
    November 21 11:09 PM
  • Onirium Thanks, I saw your list earlier, I'll definitely check some of the stuff on there, most of it sounds really interesting. As for PT, if they ever reunite, I obviously hope they wouldn't play it too safe. The idea of a kind of more space-prog sound, like a more modern sounding version of their 90s style just came to my mind and I think it could be awesome to hear. And yeah, that Bowness album is really great; as you like No-Man, you'll definitely dig it.
    November 21 11:05 PM
  • Jethro42 It's flattering, thanks! Wow!!! Incredible performance by Jeff Buckley! Oh man! For a guy that doesnt know what he's actually singing. And he hits the notes as usual!... Funny enough, I noticed earlier that Buckley was named on Khan's Wikipedia. Buckley cited Khan as a major influence, saying of him ''He's my Elvis''. Cool coincidence! And yet another legend who left our world, isn't it.
    November 21 10:49 PM
  • Jethro42 *humor...Ah me and my broken English :(
    November 21 09:24 PM
  • Jethro42 Yes, Passion is emotionally intense added by that performance by Khan. And it suits the music very well. Also thanks for sharing ''Signal to Noise'' which is mesmerizing me. Also Gabriel's 'In your eyes'' where he is very well surrounded. I tried to identify all his guests and I'm not good at it. Maybe I just recognized Alanis Morissette (even not sure haha). Also I visited your youtube. You look like a funny guy, full of humour. It shows on Sputnik you're a nice guy so...
