1. Thoracic Park
2. Welcome to the Edge
3. Obsession
4. It Can't Be So
5. Obsidian
6. Batovich
7. Bio-Freez
8. For All Time

 

Stated Influences:

King Crimson
Planet X

Members Of Band:

What I've heard so far sounds very good indeed. If we had some full samples for the teams to use for evaluation, I reckon this band would be a dead cert for addition to the site.  Thumbs Up

We actually did send a copy of the full disc to Tom Gagliardi; is there some other address I should follow up to?
Thanks - Phil, Carpe Nota

Not sure if Tom has a username on here - he probably does, but I'm not familiar with it. The best place to start if you want your stuff evaluated is to send a link to some mp3 samples of the album to Andy Webb, who pre-evaluates all the new bands and artists suggested on here. He would then pass the link on to the members of the sub genre team who he thought was most appropriate, and they would then check it out (and hopefully add you to the site). Just send a private message to Andy with the link included, and he will do the rest.  Thumbs Up

Noted, Phil Smile now that you officially have released a full-fledged album you're not unsigned anymore regarding our policy
the samples sound promising, prog music in any case, I will forward a submission to the heavy prog team ...

Hello there. I'm a bit inclined to point this band to the Neo Prog team. There a lot of heavy, but there's also a lot of synths and Neo tricks.

Sometimes it is even Crossover (but not enough).

There's a point where "avant-garde" and "experimental" becomes "terrible" and "pointless,"

Even my cat believes that :-)

I heard this album online, and then ordered it straight away it - or rather, it's waiting in my latest batch of stuff that I have to finalise with Greg Walker and Syn-phonic Records!

It's a terrific album, very addictive, the tracks go in all sorts of directions! Endless killer guitar and keyboard solos, never too heavy as to actually be full metal, but the album has a real kick to it! At the same time it's also very melodic, accessible and easy to get in to.

Great effort from this band! I'll likely submit a very positive review for it once it's up on the archives.

Thanks so much to ABB and everyone for the props! Much appreciated..We just opened for Knight Area on the 10th at the Sellersville Theater in PA and were very well received. Hope to see any/all of you out there soon!
( Note to High Voltage Festival organizers - any way you could advance us our hotel/airfare?!! )
