Pathos And Logos Unleash “Mergers And Acquisitions”

Instrumental Progressive Metal Duo Pathos And Logos unleashed a killer track upon us unworthy earthlings.  “Mergers And Acquisitions” brings a great well rounded sound to the table with not just lots of heavy sections, but lots of mood and phenomenal guitar melodies provided by Kyle.  Paul’s drumming perfectly compliments […]

Dave’s Best of 2018 Awards!

Hello folks! I am back with my second “Best Of” Awards article…..but with more sections to spice things up. Newcomer Vick wrote hers and I’m here with my valued or unvalued opinion with some possible bias. The numbers aren’t important in my article I DO NOT RANK I just list […]

Marc Durkee- Remain In Stasis

Marc Durkee is releasing his album “Remain In Stasis” January 18th of 2019 and it’s a great progressive rock treat! You can also check out a guitar play through of the song “The Dark Dimension” above this sentence.  He is a wealth of talent writing not just all of […]

Buffalo’s fine tech death/prog/experimental trio INERTIA has released a fucking monstrous full length that isn’t Weaponex. Both bands have released my two favorite offerings this year from Buffalo bands and shit is it a treat.  Let’s dive balls deep into this wild […]

Thoren- Gwarth 1

My Thoren buddies are at it again, but with a much more straightforward and equally as fucked up and wild follow up to Brennenburg.  They’re an instrumental project with a shit ton of dissonance, weird rhythms and some jazz influences here and there.  “Gwarth 1” is a wild ride of that, […]
