Melodic Progressive Metal | Country: Greece | Label: Pride & Joy Music

Progressive rock/metal bands have never been ones to shy away from atmosphere and ‘out-there’ sounds, and FLOATING WORLDS is no exception. First track "Oceania" starts off with about a minute of ethereal, calming ocean sounds, and when the riffing starts, it is soon joined by overlaid symphonic keys, lending a transcendent air to the track. It is an instrumental intro, though there is some chorus ‘ahhing’ added in for effect. Continuing the ocean theme, "Sailing in History" opens similarly, but this time a plaintive flute-y melody accompanies the maritime atmosphere. The vocals are similarly plaintive at first, and they move in perfect tandem with the underlying keys. Percussion doesn’t kick in until past the 3-minute mark, and guitars follow soon after. The vocals remain soaring, and the heavy chugging is fairly straightforward; the melodic work is still being handled by the symphonic instruments. There is a bare-bones lead towards the end, showing that this is a band more concerned with musicality than being impressive.

"I know where I'm headed, but I don't know what it is," says Devin Townsend in the initial episode of the seven-part documentary that prefaced the release of Empath, his first solo album since dissolving the Devin Townsend Project in 2017. For nearly 30 years, Townsend has erased artificial boundaries between genres. He has continually juxtaposed tracks ranging from extreme metal to progressive rock, classical, new age, ambient music, and even Americana on the same album. Here he goes much further: He grants listeners – and himself – witness to the jarring totality of his musical identity as he collides, explodes, and re-combines genres and sonic stratagems within songs.

Wings of Time is the second DGM album, released in 1999. The sound becomes much more elaborate but it remains very powerful and fast. Fabio Costantino joins the drums, replacing Gianfranco Tassella, who we find here as a producer. It is a more mature album than the previous ‘Change Direction’ and it begins to outline a more mature sound. Wingd of Time is is the last album that sees Luciano Regoli at the voice with DGM and he will leave at the end of the tour.

Umpfel was formed in 2011 in Norway by Anund Vikingstad (guitar, bass) and Andreas Skorpe Sjoen (drums, keyboards, vocals). In 2015, they released their first full length album named "Cactus". Four years later, they have finally released their 2nd album called "As the Waters Cover the Sea". They have recruited a total of eight guests to help them out with this album, and among those musicians we have violinists and cellists along with additional guitarists. The album consists of 11 tracks that have a total run time of just over an hour, most tracks being around the 4-5 minute mark, but with a few on the last half of the album extending past that mark, up to just over 8 minutes…

In March 2016 the band signed a multi-deal album with Frontiers Records and their now releasing their 9th full lenght of their career: The Passage. It is the culmination of almost 20 years of hard work that started back in 1997 with the release of their self-produced mini-album, Random Access Zone. The band went through several incarnations and lineup changes during the years, but since singer Mark Basile joined the group in 2007, DGM evolved and developed their sound into what they have now become..

Although they may not go by the Savatage moniker, Jon Oliva's Pain reflects the aforementioned band's knack for anthemic metal with a heavy progressive edge. Also, comparisons to Savatage are inevitable when you have the group's longest-tenured singer, Jon Oliva, at the helm. Their third full-length overall, 2006's Maniacal Renderings, brings to mind an era when metalheads favored skin-tight jeans, white high-top sneakers, and leather jackets (ahem, the late '80s, in case you didn't know). But unlike most metal bands that lean towards the proggier side of things, Oliva doesn't utilize oft-annoying, over-the-top operatic vocal shtick…

Never has a more apt title for a release been used. Arcturus have looked at the rule book, and although they haven't actually ripped it up and started again, they have taken its core, twisted, manipulated and totally transformed the damn thing. Okay, other bands have tried this, most of whom have fallen flat on their arses in the process, which is where Arcturus differ dramatically. This is sensational stuff. Dipping in and out of elegant dreamy sound scapes that fit perfectly into the mix. Nothing sounds out of place, although in turn nothing sounds like anything before it. Comparisons shouldn't really be identified in any review because to be honest there isn't really anything relevant in the current scene. This is original, majestic and a true piece of modern day art…

Having carried on the spirit of Savatage in the wake of the band's unfortunate hiatus, Jon Oliva's Pain has come out with what may be their most ambitious effort to date. This album isn't quite as aggressive as the previously released "Maniacal Renderings" was, but it manages to showcase the band's more experimental side and helps bring in some of the theatrics that made the Oliva brothers' original baby as unique as it was.

After the breakthrough success and worldwide respect that Queensrÿche gained from their conceptual masterpiece Operation: Mindcrime, it was a fair assumption that they couldn't possibly outdo or perhaps even match themselves. Empire, released just two years after that watermark, reveals that Queensrÿche reinvented themselves (though certainly not for the last time). While many fans were clamoring for a conceptual sequel, the band offers a song-oriented approach that is more art rock and less metal (though Empire does rock hard in places)…
