The interesting melodies and shift in rhythms have always been something that made the band stand out on their own and on this new upcoming album the formula keeps ticking like an old school clock who just refuses to die. Armed with lead singer Brian Allen they found a pure raw and capable vocalist that fits the mold of the band like butter.
There is way too much to digest just on a few spins on this immense project, I am sure that I missed probably more then half of the meanings of each song and it’s little idiosyncrasies, but hey it’s never easy to digest progressive metal let alone something tackling the secrets of the universe okay, so cut me some slack.
My writing has given me so much satisfaction in my life. Not necessarily the writing itself, but certainly most of the events leading up to it, and some aspects that have remained with me forever.
