    Posted: December 28 2010 at 06:59
Disconnect is an American prog duo consisting of:

Erich O'Dell (me):  guitars, bass, keyboards, voices
Brian Eschrich:  drums, percussion

We've played music together for nearly 20 years and Disconnect is the latest incarnation of our collaborative efforts.  We officially formed in December 2009 and, since that time, have written & recorded two full-length albums as well as an EP.

Our first album ("Radio Hostile") is a concept album and was released in May, 2010.  In August we released an EP entitled "Fragments", which consisted of songs we recorded during the sessions for "Radio Hostile" that we opted to drop from the final mix.  We cut these songs as we felt they did not totally fit the concept of "Radio Hostile".  The songs on "Fragments" are also decidedly more mainstream and straightforward than our other material. 

We released our follow-up album "Obscuros" in November 2010, which is being reviewed in Progression Magazine's upcoming issue (issue #61).  "Obscuros" is also in playing rotation on Aural Moon and ProgRockRadio.

We've recently been added as a Crossover Prog artist here at PA and would love to get feedback on all of our recordings from the forum.

The songs from "Radio Hostile" and "Obscuros" are streamed here at PA on our artist page:

As the material from "Fragments" has not been uploaded to PA for streaming audio, you may download "Fragments" in its entirety here at Mediafire:

hey folks, brian (the other half of disconnect) here. considering the fact that most of the music i listen to is either listed here or i found here, i'm wondering why it took me so long to create a profile. thank you to everyone who has taken the time to listen to our music and offer their thoughts and constructive criticism - it is most appreciated!

speaking of which, methinks i'll start doing some reviews as well...

Well both 'Obscuros' and 'Radio Hostile' are available as streaming audio here at PA on our artist page, also at our MySpace page (http://www.myspace.com/disconnecttheband).

....And of course they are available for downloadable purchase at iTunes, Amazon.com, etc.  LOL 

However if you're not able to stream the live audio feeds for some reason, we can provide you a download link for the albums.  Just let us know.

Thanks!

On Monday, January 10th at 9pm Eastern, the new Disconnect album "Obscuros" will be one of the featured albums played/reviewed on the 'New Moon On Monday' show on Aural Moon.   (for those who aren't familiar, Aural Moon is one of the best-known prog rock internet radio sites out there).

http://auralmoon.com/

I believe Disconnect's "Obscuros" will be first up in the show.  I'll be doing a live chat with the host for the duration of our time slot.  Hopefully some of our PA comrades can join the fun.

The show will be re-broadcast again at the following dates/times:

Wednesday, January 12th @ 1:00pm Eastern
Friday, January 14th @ 5:00am Eastern

Just as a side note, it is STRONGLY recommended that when you listen to our albums you should start with either "Obscuros" or "Radio Hostile", as these are true prog albums.  

"Fragments", on the other hand, is an EP made up of songs that were cut from the "Radio Hostile" album.  The songs on "Fragments" are more or less straightforward 'rock' songs with few prog moments (hence the reason these songs were cut from "Radio Hostile"!).

of course, feel free to listen to "Fragments" AFTER you've checked out our other stuff...  Big smile

thanks for listening...
