On my opinion Zero Hour is amazing... yet they take a lot of elements and i mean lots of elements out of Dream Theater including the style of the vocals( Even though there is no matching to James LaBrie's style) and they combined these with other elements, though they appear original they should come up with their own style so that we can differentiate them from other Dream Theater 2.0 version and enjoy them freely with lot more attention than they have right now Thumbs%20Up

Their new one grew on me quite a bit, even though their new singer is such a shameless Geoff Tate clone that I'm sometimes still a little put off.  They're seriously one of the tightest bands ever... regardless of how stunningly complex they can be, their pieces never lose any kind of flow.

I got their latest CD  its a mixed bag as far as I`m concerned  .. some brilliant melodicstuff on it that reminds me of fates "a pleasant shade of grey" for some strange reason ? but theres also plenty of  heavy stuff  too which I`m not so thrilled about  , this band are great when they don`t get too heavy I believe !  Smile

Towers of Avarice is my favorite,but the new album with the ex-vocalist from Power of Omens(I think his name is Chris Salinas),is also excellent.They blend technicality and complexity without being "showy" about it,and they always find a nice balance between heaviness and melodicism.

Now you have me wanting to listen to some Zero Hour......

I've only heard (and own) Metamorphosis... I'm sad to say that it didn't work for me. I gave it 1 star. That was like my third review ever so I did it just after three listens, but i remember that i couldn't remember anything of the music..Confused... it was too chaotic and un-melodic, with no coherent structure. Soon I'll be hearing it again and maybe I'll find out I was too harsh, but maybe I wasn't. With Fates Warning i've changed my mind but I never accused them of having no coherence, it was Ray Alder's voice the barrier in my liking FW, and I went over it (actually, in Redemption the guy sounds great!Clap); in the case of Zero Hour, it was the music, the whole package. So I guess I don't like them. But it's not a definitive position, and also, i haven't heard their latest.

DEMISE AND VESTIGE is one of the greatest progressive metal songs ever.

I have all three of their albums and I like them a lot, but I feel they can get a bit repetitive at the best of times.  They're great at what they do, but they're not quite refreshing enough.  Great band though.

Brilliant band. I only own Metamorphosis though, but I will check out the rest of their disography, I really like their style. Will get Towers of Avarice next, can't wait!Big%20smile

I'm sorry to say that I haven't heard of this band. I am very interested in looking into them though, because by the sounds of it they sound like they are very good.
I am keen to hear them.

Love them!! Especially Towers Of Avarice. I wish they hadn't lost Erik Rosvold on vocals. He had incredible power while staying within his range. Great VERY complex prog metalThumbs Up

I got their albums awhile ago. Quite okay prog metal band, especially Towers of Averice is good, though for some reason I have listened more their latest Fragile Mind more (I like the harder edge of Tower of Avarice). Metamorphosis was a bit dull.

I like them quite a bit and have Towers of Averice, A Fragile Mind, and Metamorphosis.  Actually they are probably my favorite technical prog metal band behind Fates Warning.  Towers of Averice is an awesome release and I find their style quite original and refreshing when compared with all the Dream Theater wannabies.  I'm still picking at their newest release, A Fragile Mind.  Yes, great band!!!!!!!

I liked them a bit but found them a bit dull after a while... somehow I don't hear much variety in their music.
