NEW DISTRO TITLES!

DEFYANCE "REINCARNATION"

Reincarnation is a revisitation of what the band has always done...was happening in the genre in 1990, it's melodic, harmonic vocals, it's got dual leads, it has well crafted powerful songs, if you're missing that sound than look no farther, its' here again.

ANURYZM "ALL IS NOT FOR ALL"

ANURYZM is a progressive thrash metal band consisting of six members from different cultural backgrounds and is based in the United Arab Emirates.

HIGHLY recommended, an amazing album few will know anything about.

DARKOLOGY "FATED TO BURN"

Fated To Burn" is filled with great songwriting, powerhouse performances and amazing vocals courtesy of Carpenter, who has recently been seen tearing it up across the world stages with FIREWIND. Likewise, the amazing Harris brothers have again put their indelible stamp on these songs.

ODIN'S COURT "TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN"

Turtles All the Way Down is a concept album that deals with ideas and questions relating to the entire universe - how did it start, where is it going, what makes it tick, what is its purpose, etc. - from the point of view of the individual's mind.

DISTORTED HARMONY "Chain Reaction"

If you like Progressive Metal that stretches the boundaries of music, and takes you on a ride, where you have no idea where your final destination is, then by all means give Distorted Harmony a chance.

CEA SERIN "The Vibrant Sound of Bliss and Decay"

The long wait is finally over: Cea Serin return with a worthy follow-up to their 2004 debut Where Memories Combine! The CD comes with a 12-page booklet containing the lyrics to all songs and Jay Lamm's comments on them.

HEMINA "NEBULAE"

The album continues to develop the band's melodic sound and use of various vocal timbres and four-part harmonies, whilst bringing the crushing groove of djent and the pop sensibilities of new-wave and modern rock.

A SOUND OF THUNDER "THE LESSER KEY OF SOLOMON"

The heavy riff-laden songs are complex yet instantly catchy, featuring razor-sharp musicianship and the lung-busting performances of powerhouse classically-trained vocalist Nina Osegueda.

AEON ZEN "EPHEMERA"

This year, Aeon Zen reveal their most ambitious effort to date, showcasing the band at their hitherto most progressive, and most aggressive. ‘EPHEMERA’ delivers on the potential of one of the UK’s most promising progressive metal acts, and picks up, musically and thematically, where ‘Enigma’ left off. Highly Recommended!

QANTICE "THE PHANTONAUTS"

These French metallers recruited Norwegian vocal sensation "Pellek" for this, their second album, his last solo album charted #2 on iTunes Norway. The band calls their style of music "Movie Metal" because of his cinematic feel, Nightmare calls it Vaudevillian Progressive Metal because it just seems to fit. Those looking for something over the top should check this out, Recommended.

 

MECHANICAL ORGANIC "THIS GLOBAL HIVE PART TWO"

Now here is a killer prog metal release from Australia.  Mechanical Organic is a new band led by former Vauxdivhl keyboardist Eddie Katz and ex-Neue Regel/Fracture vocalist David Bellion.  This Global Hive is an incredible marriage of different aspects of prog.  The result is a band that has created a sound that sounds like a mash up of Zero Hour and very early Queensryche.  Its the second part of a conceptual work...NMR has both titles in a bundle deal. 

4TH DIMENSION "DISPELLING THE VEIL OF ILLUSIONS"

With "Dispelling The Veil Of Illusions" 4TH DIMENSION manages to make a significant step forward. The songwriting is just more sophisticated, the arrangement are more balanced, the melodies are more catchy and the whole production has received a more adult touch with the decisive step of more professionalism.

Voyager "V"

The Aussie's return with their highly anticipated fifth album, arguably their best to date, playing what they call progressive groove metal. We call it impressive, lot's of melody, stellar production, brilliant guitars and vocals. Absolutely required for Progressive metal fans! 

T&N

T&N "Slave to the Empire"

FEATURING "THE BIG 3" FROM DOKKEN! T&N reunites George Lynch, Jeff Pilson and “Wild” Mick Brown – aka “The Big Three” from Dokken - for this brand new 12 song disk that will surely be referred to as a classic in years to come!

My Soliloquy

My Soliloquy "The Interpreter"

Brought to us by THRESHOLD guitarist Pete Morten, The Interpreter is sure to spark the interest of Threshold's fans and they wont be disappointed once they hear My Soliloquy's excellent modern progressive metal, something special, this release is more diverse throughout than Threshold's most recent offering.

Now the time has come to convince Europe of their quality and playfulness.
