Hot damn, but I am excited for the new Skyharbor release! Dan Tompkins is one of my all time favorite singers and a blog favorite. While a new TesseracT album with him looms on the horizon, one must not forget the quite different Skyharbor that is coming our way. Now, the band have released a new track from the release, titled ‘Patience’, backed by a video. Check it out below!

best-of-prog-black

Hello, hello and welcome to the sixth part in our ongoing series of Heavy Blog Is Heavy’s “Best Of” selections where we explore a genre of music and each of our dedicated authors picks a favorite album to share a personal experience with. Breaking away from genre limitations, we present to you the “Way, Way Different” list. This list focuses on albums that were a clean break in an artist’s or band’s career, whether they spawned follow ups in their likeness or were one-off occasions.

Progression itself is important but not a sole value and thus, we didn’t simply select albums that were just different but albums that were different in a brilliant way. All these releases not only marked a distinct change in a sound or style, but also elevated the music and direction of the artists in question to whole new levels, whether technically or emotionally. This list also has a good chance to spark controversery, as it includes various genres but mostly because one man’s stroke of genius is another man’s selling out. Therefore, let us remind you once again: it’s OK to not like thing! Sound off below with your own suggestions for albums that were Way, Way Different. See you there!

Voices From the Fuselage

When Ashe O’Hara joined TesseracT, his other project Voices from the Fuselage was put on hold. They did not disband, stating that he was still the vocalist for the band and that they would still make music. Considering that he parted ways with TesseracT, I’m glad that they decided to stay together. I definitely wanted to hear more of his incredible vocal talent and now we have just that! The band released a demo of a song called ‘A Principle God’, which you can check out after the jump.

Hey! Listen to Kettlespider!

Kettlespider
It’s come to the point where even my promise to not talk about the Australian metal scene in the post itself is overused. That’s how much good music we’ve had in the recent months from there and more is on the way. Meanwhile, let’s put our Aussie goggles on and focus in on Kettlespider. With their debut release behind them way back in 2012, the band are looking towards of their promising career. Why promising you ask? Instead of referring you to the solid debut that is Avadante, and leaving you to puzzle out its interesting concept before you truly dig into the band, let me refer you to a video they’ve just released next week. Perhaps drawing inspiration from the famous TesseracT live studio sessions, the young gents have entered Black Pearl Studios to give us a live rendition of one of their tracks, “Evolution”. Head on over the jump to hear it in full!
