    Hey everyone, I've written an album's worth of instrumental material (think Periphery, Architects, Northlane, that kind of stuff) and I'm looking for vocalists to do some guest spots on the songs to finish them off. If anyone's interested, drop me a message. I like to think the music is pretty...

    Yep. Satriani is on the new Ayreon Record and he sounds tremendous! I love it. He sounds great and like his younger-self. Clip below. I'm looking forward to this new Ayreon record because it sounds pretty chaotic in a good way. There's even a 25 page comic book coming with it too.

    I cannot say I'm the biggest Arch/Matheos fan. Because I'm not the craziest about John Arch's vocals unless I just need to get "used to it" more. However, I am loving it on this album. Really enjoying it. Christian Muezner (Obscura, Necrophagist) recommended listening and said it was very...

    Been listing to the new DarkWater album titled human non stop the last week. Its made up of members from the power metal band Harmony and Pain of Salvation. They are more unknown, probably due to the fact that they don't release albums often. But very highly under rated IMO. If you like power /...

    This guy sound really good, I haven't heard of him before, just came up randomly on youtube: Hes got a really good right hand finger technique, good phrasing also.

    I love this new Dream Theater song and they have not released a new song in a while where I felt in love. However, this is very SDOT, Ocatavarium. Everything sounds great and Petrucci's solo is glorious. So good. His best solo out of all the ones recently. Labrie's vocals are spot-on, reminds...

    Okay, title is a little click-baity but question is semi legitimate. I was having a talk with someone about what's the best Metallica album, where they fell apart, etc. We were talking about stuff they did 'different' over time and how far they got away from the sound of the first albums, etc...

    Actually, the album's been out since August, but I've been late to share it. Namely due to the fact that I have no idea how to promote what is ostensibly an album, but it's really just 4 songs (with 1 intro and 1 cover) so it's really just 2 new songs. :lol: But what the hell, here's the new...

    You guys might enjoy this. Our bassist just recently filmed a playthrough of one of our new tracks. I recorded him with a SansAmp Bass Driver DI into a Universal Audio 1176 Legendary Plugin. I'll happily send a shot of the settings to anyone who wants them, just PM me :)

    Earlier this year, I got a session job to play bass for a guitarist planning to release a prog rock album. It started off with only bass duties but since it was produced by the singer of my other prog band, whom also co-produced my solo album with me, I ended up adding some additional guitars...

    They came towards the tail end of the prog scene, and there's a lot of, varied set of influences in here (Yes, Gentle Giant, Queen, Steely Dan, ELP, Beach Boys), but they've got some cool ideas of their own, too.
  13. Music: Recording Studio
    I agreed to mix a Prog Metal band's first release and holy shit these songs are long. Too long. Anyway, here's a 1:00 clip... this song is like 8 fucking minutes total. :noway: Feel free to give any critique, sorry it's kind of a short clip but I don't feel like bouncing this whole track at the...

    Incase anybody wasn't following this already, Marco Minnemann and a couple of assorted people from the prog scene (Jimmy Pitts, Fountainhead and Jerry Twyford) have been working on a project and it looks like they're going to be releasing the finished product in a the next week. Some of what...

    Hey dudes! I saw their drummer post a facebook update about recording a new album and I lost my shit! A classic! Badass newer song! (Live studio recording)

    I'm not big on prog metal, but these guys have been a favorite for a long time. Busting out their records again. There's a ton of flavors in there. Psychotic Waltz/Faith No More/etc. They deserve to be way bigger, and both of their records are insanely good.

    I know self promo stuff doesn't always go down well here but I want to post it up somewhere here! After taking a good while recording our stuff my band Shardborne are finally getting our first full length album out. We're an instrumental 4 piece from Ireland that play prog metal. Our album is...

    I'm looking for something different to Spotify at work tonight. An evil prog if there is such a thing. I dont need e-chugga time-sig prog, but I'm looking for something that gets adventurous with both rhythm and melody/harmony. An evil steve vai for example. It doesnt have to have a virtuoso...

    Oh my goodness!!! I am freaking out guys! I cannot believe Kiko (Angra) is in Megadeth! From a technique, versatility and writing standpoint, he is the best guitarist Megadeth could have! This is insane! :flex::agreed::cool...
