Pomegranate Tiger biography
POMEGRANATE TIGER is a Canadian instrumental progressive metal band formed by multi-instrumentalist Martin ANDRES in 2010 while attending the University of Windsor. Prior to the formation of the current lineup, the project's initial roster back in 2008 included Martin ANDRES and Chase BRYANT. In 2009 guitarist Matthew SHAHEEN joined the band, originally called, ROCK-A-SAURUS REX. In 2010, drummer Phil GATTI joined and soon thereafter the band name POMEGRANATE TIGER was decided on whilst looking through Salvador DALI paintings. Keith WILKINSON joined in 2012 after Chase BRYANT left to pursue further studies in music.

The band wrote and recorded their debut full-length album "Entities" between 2010-2011. The album was release on January 31st 2013, featuring instrumental metal that's firmly rooted in the progressive metal territory.

Pomegranate Tiger Progressive Metal

Review by Wolfhound

5 stars I don't listen to much metal anymore nor do I listen to much prog metal, but this is one helluva a progressive metal album and a very impressive debut from this Canadian group. The level of musicianship is outstanding and the complexity of the arrangements is impressive as well. The guitar work really stands out on this album, but the drums and bass are really excellent to boot (although they work more to frame the guitar work and drive the songs than trying to compete for attention with the guitars). There is plenty of chugging, pounding and grinding riffage in this music as well as totally gonzo guitar pyrotechnics and acrobatics. The technical quality of the guitar work is superb, yet maintains a melodic edge throughout the shredding and riffing that really stops the music from feeling mechanical. Lots of changes to rhythms, tempos, time signatures and such that gives it that progressive feel and keeps it quite interesting. Nothing is dragged out and the pacing of the music is great. There is a bit of piano and/or synth work added in to break things up a bit, but it is few and far between and for the most part this is intense, masterful prog metal. Pomegranate Tiger is reminiscent of stuff like Chimp Spanner, Animals As Leaders, Scale the Summit with touches of Dream Theater.

This might not be 5 stars for some listeners because the metal can get pretty intense on this, but I am on my third play through in the last 24 hours and thoroughly enjoying it from start to finish so it is a 5 star release to me.

Thanks to Rune2000 for the artist addition.
