4 stars Watchtower have the honor of releasing the first progressive metal album... in 1985, Energetic Disassembly saw the first light of day along with a sound never been heard before... however, it had a very poor production....

Four years later, Control And Resistance came and set things right... extremely heavy, psychotic, complex, with continuously high pitched vocals spitting pinko manifests...

with one foot to prog metal and the other to tech thrash, Watchtower tested our nerves with their superb skills and crabby song structures but in the end they won the bet...

the complexity of their music and the time they released their LPs deprived them of becoming the new hot name of prog metal... but they will always have a soft spot in our hearts...
