Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/theharvestcolour. Definitely prog, with enough of a metal content for the blacksmiths to be interested, so yeah - this belongs in Prog Metal for me, despite the more 'acoustic' interludes it also contains. Thumbs Up No info on facebook again though (or bandcamp for that matter)...Why do so many new bands NOT include a bio these days? It just makes it that much more difficult for sites like this to give them a leg up, and get them some additional exposure. Ermm

And a pretty swift response from them to a request for more information via said facebook: 

"The Harvest Colour blends characteristics of acoustic songwriting with modern progressive rock, creating a refreshing and unique sonic environment. The group formed in Pittsburgh, PA in the fall of 2015, when front man Gabe Mangold had written several songs that weren't appropriate for his metal band Delusions of Grandeur. He had known and performed with his good friends Ron Rekowski (bass) and Paul Campbell (percussion) for several years prior and asked them to join his new musical endeavor, feeling that they would be the perfect fit. Their contributions helped complete the sound of THC's debut LP 'Chrysalis', released 1/5/16. They released a music video for 'Spring To Come', a 7 minute sonic roller coaster that begins with percussive acoustic techniques a la Andy Mckee, followed by brooding melodies and lyrics that flow into its trademark chorus and emotive guitar solo. The video tallied over 10,000 views in its first week, which surprised and humbled the young group, feeling grateful for the overwhelming positive response. The remainder of Chrysalis also portrays this dark, emotional, broody sound; Mangold speaks of heartbreak, dissatisfaction with life, avarice, death, and more. 
Excited after the positive reception of their first release, THC is extremely eager to begin performing in the Pittsburgh area and to branch out to surrounding cities. Their performance, like their sound, is also unique, featuring steady use of acoustic and electric guitars.
"We want to make people feel something, as that's what good music does, invoke emotion," states Mangold. "I do my best to sonically depict what I'm feeling, and to have these feelings reflect on the listener in an accessible, relatable fashion."

And that should do quite nicely for starters, I reckon! Approve  Thumbs Up

Edit: And here they are on progfreak, all ready to go: http://progfreak.com/The-Harvest-Colour-165397.html Smile
