Grant The Sun- Simmar Ur Bild

  Grant The Sun is an Instrumental Prog/Math metal band out of Norway that is releasing its second EP “Simmar Ur Bild” this Friday November 30th.  The four song EP was a groovy, wild rhythmic display of musicianship with some sweet melodic guitar leads here and there. Think […]

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, […]

Trigger- The Harbor

  Trigger is a solo instrumental project by Michael Trio out of Nashville.  Tonight on Halloween I give you a SCARY good fucking album.  Trigo did all the music and arrangements on this beast and shit is it ever a masterpiece.  It’s a prog-tactic adventure through the cosmic […]

Samuli Federley- Lifestream

Instrumental Prog guitarist Samuli Federley released “Lifestream” July 20th through Inverse Records.  I am so glad I checked this out.  Anyone that is into melodic, experimental guitarists that don’t overdo it and create great soundscapes (IE Graham Young).  Federley also seems to have a flair for the dramatic and […]

Divinex June/July 2018 Interview

  I had a great opportunity to interview my Divinex homeboys and it’s quite the detailed interview! Everyone knows my obsession with them, and really hit home with me seeing another band’s perspective, writing style, process, and other areas of what makes them truly unique.  I have been to at […]
