TOEHIDER is an Australian project between singer/multi-instrumentalist MIKE MILLS and graphic designer ANDREW SALTHMARSH, and I Have Little To No Memory Of These Memories is their 5th full length album so far. Mike did everything on his own, and I must say it sounds really amazing from start to finish, sounding like a huge band or project, but as already mentioned he did it almost all on his own. Andrew is responsible for the album artwork, and if we have to describe TOEHIDER it is a pure epic progressive rock/prog metal journey that is based around catchy Rock Opera melodies and instrumental prog breaks.

This new album is actually one long song that last 47 minutes and 47 seconds, and from start to finish it is a sensational ride where the massive QUEEN/VALENTINE alike vocal harmonies and Progressive Rock/Metal Opera breaks a la DREAM THEATER come together perfectly multiple times throughout the song, and there is a lot more to discover because inside this long song are actually separate songs that also show TOEHIDER’s love for SAVATAGE, RUSH, TRIUMPH, BLACK SABBATH, DIO and such classic rock and metal, while even a pure 80s instrumental VINCE DECOLA kinda Rocky 4 synthwave part is featured, so a lot of diversity is going on here (like a trip down memory lane of music history!).

This is definitely a highly recommended album for sure, and an enjoyable ride each and every second!
