Permian Incident biography
The band was founded in Hamar Norway in 2012 by Stig "Six" PETERSHEIM (keyboards) and Torbjorn DYBSAND (Drums). They were joined by singer Johannas HULLEBERG, Kim Daniel TAALESEN (guitars) and bass player Stian DALSLAEN. The members were playing in other bands from different styles like Hard Rock, Heavy Metal and Prog. The music is a good combination of good melodies and groove with epic songs containing many twists and turns. The singer will remind you of Ian Gillan of DEEP PURPLE. But the music is more adventurous that this classic rock band with a lot more extensive instrumental passages. The band was in the battle of bands for the Sweden Rock Festival promoting their new album released in 2015 "Songs of Solitude & Sorrow".

Review by Matti
Prog Reviewer

— First review of this album —
4 stars In my listening history the only "heavy" band I have a longer and closer relationship with is URIAH HEEP. So, it feels a bit funny that it's me who writes the first review for this Norwegian Heavy Prog band. More than a year ago the members of the Neo Prog team (including myself) were sent the CD+DVD release of BLIND ORPHANS, a band originating from the late 80's, stylistically between Neo and Heavy. Probably just as a kind PR gesture we were given also the debut of a new band that features the same drummer as the mentioned group, even though it had almost nothing to do with Neo Prog. Must confess that right now I'm listening to it only for the third time ever, as my eye caught the CD on my shelf and I happened to check out if the band has been added here. Least I should do is try and say something worthy about this music for which I have very minimal subjective ties. For starters, the cover design is pretty good!

The term Heavy Prog is 100% appropriate. This is heavy rock -- not Speed/Doom/Tech/Post/etc. Metal -- and the compositions are progressively extended. Doubtlessly a connoisseur of the heavy genre could right away drop several household names to describe the style. In the band bio the vocals of Johannes Hulleberg are compared to Ian Gillan. The sound of the standard line-up of guitarist, keyboardist, bassist and drummer is meaty and well balanced. In fact, I can use the word pleasant too. If I ever will take the world of Heavy/Metal Rock truly into my heart (in the age of 46 that's not very plausible anymore...), this would definitely be among the albums "to open up the flood gates", if you know what I mean. The usual negative feelings of listening to music not within the comfort zone or taste (ie. the personal listening history) are absent.

Of course I'd need to listen to this albums many times in order to learn the individual tracks and give a deeper analysis, but already now there are some highlights to catch my attention. 'True or False' (13:36) progresses impressively from the more regular heavy, with powerful chords of electric guitar and Hammond, into a A Script of the Jester's Tear era Marillion-like theatricality and passion finished with emotional vocals and instrumental solos. But sadly in the end, the composition doesn't come anywhere near the hair-raising drama of songs such as 'Script...', 'The Web' or 'Forgotten Sons'.

Another fine track is 'Troubled Straits' that has slightly Marillionish keyboard sounds in the background. For the whole 78-minute album I can't completely avoid of sense of tiredness, but I guess getting to know the album better would help in that matter. 3 stars rounded up: if it's not quite an excellent addition to any Heavy Prog collection, it surely is a strong and well-working one.

Thanks to rdtprog for the artist addition.
