Taylor Watson biography
Taylor WATSON grew up in Muskoka, Ontario, Canada, where he started playing guitar and writing music. He was largely influenced by his father Dean WATSON, who listened to music that was predominantly 'guitar heavy'. After moving to Toronto and going to school for Music Production, Taylor started listening to a wide variety of genres from metal, to hip hop, to electronica. ''[A]synchronous'' is his first release in 2014, and incorporates elements from all of Taylor's influences.

Taylor's music can be best descrined as instrumental progressive metal, taking influence from both the 'traditional' guitar-heavy aspect of the genre and the 'djent' movement.

Taylor Watson Progressive Metal

Review by BrufordFreak
Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars A remarkable debut record from son of Fusion legend Dean Watson, this music has a fusion going on of its own: There are many times that I feel that I'm hearing the walls of sound of DEVIN TOWNSEND's guitar-heavy work or TOOL. But I also hear many melodic moments, variations, and I can access much more of the individual instruments' work here. All-instrumental, Taylor weaves some very interesting themes and riffs together in a singular and fresh way--which is why I can tolerate this type of metal/extreme metal better than I can Devin's. The music is complex and the musicianship virtuosic (with some great engineering tricks) but not over-the-top nor sacrificing quirk or engaging melodies. I also find myself reminded of one of my all-time favorite albums, PROGHMA-C's Bar-do Travel while listening to manny parts of this album. If this is where young Mr. Watson is starting then, watch out world! We're going to see (and hear) great things in the future from this musical wiz-kid.

5 star songs: "(A)Synchronous" (6:00) (9/10), "Moments" (6:36) (10/10), and "Tarnished Rendition" (7:05) (9/10).

The rest are all solid four star compositions. A very solid four star album. Kudos, Taylor!

Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition.
