Linear Sphere biography
LINEAR SPHERE was formed in 2002 in West London, UK. The band's unique approach has already earned them cult status with listeners worldwide. Featuring artistic, highly intricate and sometimes epic compositions that demonstrate the very highest level of musicianship, LINEAR SPHERE are setting a new standard with their diverse blend of progressive metal, jazz-fusion and a subtle dose of technical death metal. One of the first bands of its kind and almost incomparable to any other, LINEAR SPHERE were formed by some of some of UK's finest musicians, three of them teachers at one of Europe's leading music colleges (The Guitar Institute). Featuring Martin Goulding and Charlie Griffiths on guitars; Dave Marks on bass; Nick Lowczowski on drums and Jos Geron on vocals, LINEAR SPHERE have just released the amazing debut "Reality Dysfunction" which has already created quite a stir amongst reviewers. After the recording of "Reality Dysfunction", Dave Marks was replaced by Steve Woodcock.

Highly recommended to fans of complex,technical progressive metal that mixes influences from quite a few different musical genres.

4 stars Killer release from start to finish

Second album named Manvantara issued in sommer of 2012 of this little known prog metal band from UK Linear Shere is for me a killer one in any aspect. I know aswell their debute and I was so so surprised, the instrumental sections were quite intresting but the voice was dreadfull. With this second offer things changed in better for sure, they had also almost 7 years to come with this second album. Some line up change, the bass player is replaced with Steve Woodcock in 2006 and aswell the second guitarist is gone Charlie Griffiths in 2008 to formed one of the leading abd well known bands from today haken. Linear Sphere gathered all the strenght he got and all the good ideas from all these silenced years since their debute from 2005 and puted in their best work so far and one of the best prog metal albums of last years for sure, at least for me Manvantara. What we have here is technical prog metal of the highest calibre with jazz fusion elements added in their sound, the result is killer, belive me, the musicianship is absolutly stunning not else. The voice aswell is much much better here then on first album, Jos Geron here sounds very confident in his vocal capabilities and has some really fantastic and powerful moments, in total contrast with what he offered on the dubute that robotic distorted vocal parts. The instrumental sections are killer, I like a lot the guitar of Martin Goulding how sounds , very fusion, very technical prog metal but keeping the sense of melody all through the album. Busy drums all the way, complex chops, excellent bass and chapman Stick lines, good atmospheric keyboards and good vocal arrangements, all in all a total winner in my book this kind of prog metal. Forte pieces, all, not a weak moment, but with a plus on opening track Origin, Cycle of Ages and Reset Realign, killer pieces. Something to add is that this is a concept album , in few words is about and is based around hindu astronomical period calendar. So finaly, all prog metal listners must discover this album and band, definetly one of the best in last years in this field, solid, catchy , technical, inventive and with all ingredinets to become something big in this filed for sure. Recommended and 4 stars for sure, maybe 4.5 stars in places, really awesome, totaly impressed by Manvantara. A combination between old Cynic, old Dream Theater and Spiral Architecht the result is Linear Sphere.

3 stars Linear Sphere is a progressive metal band from UK. Is a young band with potential but something is not working as I want on this single album from 2005. The music is ok with god and mediocre passages, morea re good one's , showing that the guitar duo is good , wirh nice shifts from heavier side to a more mellow aproach. The bass is good, the drums did a good job, but now, the voice of Jos Geron are simply horrible. I don't know if this is a joke of a voice or they want it to sound like that. Man, is one of the most unpleasent and unenjoyble vocal parts I ever heared from any genre,any band any period of time, this guy sings like he is underwater 200 feet, really I'm not joking, he has no voice, and above that on some parts, more like on whole parts the vocal parts sound like a band who plays industrial music, robotic with to many scraches or whatever thay are. The music is ok in parts is even great, the duo guitars did the best job here, but the voice ruins everything that is good here, really, she drags the album to be a 2 stars for me. As a whole is not a bad album, and if this Reality dysfunction were an instrumental album, than for sure I would give a higher rate. Anyway, I don't think they desearve one star, because the instrumental passages are good. 2 star is ok.
