This week we're doing something different as well. Instead of covering the news (there wasn't a lot) we're just going to do a "starter kit" on progressive power metal (despite my objections)! Basically, why anyone would want to listen to the genre (no idea) and if so, what bands should they start with (none of them)? Eden and I both discuss some classics. Names mentioned include Blind Guardian, Angra, Therion, Pagan's Mind, Kamelot, Teramaze and Fractal Cypher. Then, we do an in-depth spoiler discussion on the excellent Blade Runner 2049. Enjoy!
The power metal streak I have been on is showing no signs of slowing down. But, lest you fear that I have forgotten my progressive roots, I've decided to splice it with more varied influences.
