Earthbound Papas is a new band created by game music composer & keyboardist Nobuo Uematsu. Just like his previous band called The Black Mages (already on PA), Earthbound Papas plays prog-metal (but with many symphonic influences and wild organ runs) versions of Nobuo Uematsu's game soundtracks + few new songs. Their only album released in 2011 is called "Octave Theory ".
 
line-up:
 
Nobuo Uematsu (Organ, Keys) / Michio Okamiya (Guitar) / Tsutomu Narita (Keys, Guitar)
Yosh*taka Hirota (Bass) / Arata Hanyuda (Drums)

Good stuff!
I alerted the PM team, and at the rate that they're going, they might actually be added pretty quickly!

Sorry but the available (29sec) samples are not sufficient to make a decision.
No myspace? no bandcamp?

After I provided you link (few days ago), now it has a better chance to be included on PA? Would be nice.

IDK what's the heavy prog stance on the band, but I don't see they being added in prog metal any time soon . . .

Wow, that's surprising. I got the album and it sounds like picture perfect HP, although I haven't listened to it in a while.

PA is paradoxal. Just to give you a hint on that, Ayreon was added first than Pink Floyd or Yes. LOL Wink Shocked

Also, that album title has tentacle pawrn written all over it.

I'm pleased that this one's been added - it's a very enjoyable album with a fair mixture of styles on it, but I can't say that I hear much prog metal tbf.

If it's Prog and there's a scrap of metal on it we will annex it Smile

A very commendable approach, having thought about it!!...It reduces the number of "tricky to classify" albums such as this that might otherwise end up being rejected from the site completely.Thumbs Up
