This album is growing on me!



Ok, so it didn't initially do it for me. I gave it a couple more listens whilst working yesterday and now I'm hooked! Already been through the album twice today. The new vocalist is really good and I can hear the Anubis Gate influences in the music.

To abuse the oft-used Steam rating system:

11/10 Would confuse melodic metal bands again

Pirate wrote:I just had to write down this thought as I play through the Waken Eyes album:
I so appreciate that most prog-metal bands see the importance of a well mixed and produced album. So much good music is ruined by horrible production. Just a couple of examples from the top of my head:
Cage - Supremacy of Steel (LOVE this band but cant stand listening through a single song as the sound abuses my ears). Their newest album kicks bum though!
Once Dead - Visions of Hell (one of the worst sounding albums I have ever listened to)


Well, not only prog-metal, but music in general. I love a well-produced album and it really is the downfall of most bands. As much as I love Theocracy (refrain from comments, I know everyone loves them secretly), their first self-titled album is a chore to listen to due to the production. Even the re-release with proper drumming sounds flat in all areas other than the drumming. It's such a shame.

So, @Pirate, any other new prog bands you can recommend? Preferably stuff with positive-to-Christian lyrics - I'd hate to cloud my mind with negativity whilst working. My current playlist is pretty much (in no specific order):

  • Circus Maximus - Nine
  • Teramaze - Esoteric Symbolism
  • Teramaze - Her Halo
  • Anubis Gate (Self-titled)
  • Anubis Gate - Horizons
  • Waken Eyes - Exodus
  • Pyramaze - Disciples of the Sun
I need MAOR music like that to while away the hours when working!

I often feel the need to work in some Symphony X and Stratovarius when I get bored of spinning those records...

I've been through them all. They're OK, but the vocals get on my nerves after a while.

I think I have mentioned all the prog-metal bands I listen to, but I will for sure report back if I stumble upon something worthwhile:)

I'm probably never gonna see any of my prog legends live... I would love a show with:

- Anubis Gate
- Teramaze
- Waken Eyes
- The Paralydium Project
- Circus Maximus
...and just for the hell of it:
- Symphony X

Man, that's what prog wet dreams are made of. *drools*

Sign me up! I would very much like to add Pyramaze (with a play-through of the latest album from start to finish) to that list though.

So when should we start working on this prog-metal festival?

Agreed agreed AGREED on new Pyramaze! Amazing album that...

How does one go about arranging a festival of this magnitude? And where should it be held? Probably in Sweden / Denmark / Norway, as most of the bands in the lineup come from there anyway... Might be my chance to FINALLY see and experience Scandinavia (and Europe).

Awwwww man, now you've got me worked up!
