It’s been eight long years since Sweden’s Progressive Metal veterans Seventh Wonder released an album. That’s a long time to be out of the game, but fortunately, fans have rabidly been awaiting this release and it doesn’t seem to have affected the band’s fan base. Indeed, quite the opposite. People have been lining up and waiting for this release for some time now. “Arrival” is a short keyboard opening piece, setting an ominous tone for what it to come. It segues into “The Everones,” which opens with a somber and intense guitar riff, leading to vocal harmonies and some Proggy time meters. A big chorus ensues, with plenty of emotions, where vocalist Tommy really stretches out, followed by a keyboard solo that will really get your juices flowing…

Dreaming of Sleep is the fourth album by progressive rock band Tetrafusion. The album was first streamed online on April 24th on Bandcamp, and the full album was released independently on April 28th. It features influences of Dream Theater, Pink Floyd, Between The Buried And Me, Monuments, Cynic, Opeth, Frank Zappa, Weather Report, King Crimson, TesseracT. This post-metal gem, featuring two ex-members of "Scale The Summit" on bass and drums, shines with various kinds of impressing guitar sounds, usually screeching in thorough distortion, frequently ponding pleasantly djenty. The heavy bass, sometimes slapped with amazing virtuosity, constitutes a solid base, and the excellent vocals and occasional keyboards complete the picture, yielding an overwhelming wall of sound that lasts for almost an hour.

Sisare are a Finnish experimental progressive rock/metal quartet from Finland, originally formed in 2008.

Fuzzy guitar walls, lyrical leads and jazzy rhythmic details create a unique blend of beauty and power.

Progressive Metal | Label : Dark Essence Records

“Marrow” is a complex album, covering a wide register of genres and expressions – from folk/prog moments to avant garde, from pretty and ballady to challenging modernistic tonality and harshness. With Agnete M. Kirkevaag’s dynamic and powerful vocals on top, as always. Lyricwise, the album is about sticking to the essence of yourself. Your ideas, your thoughts, your values. To stay true to your roots – your Marrow. Their most doomy album to date, and at times both heavier and catchier than it’s predecessor “Red in Tooth and Claw”, “Marrow” is a perfect album for those thunderous Autumn storms. Produced by BP M. Kirkevaag & Madder Mortem, mastered by Peter In de Betou at Tailor Maid.

Hard Rock, Metal, Rock | Label: Metal Blade Records

When writing about A New Kind Of Horror in the record's liner notes, Anaal Nathrakh vocalist Dave Hunt is succinct in his description: "This is not a happy album, it is bitter, vengeful, sarcastic, sardonic, violent, terrified and horrified, terrifying and horrifying in equal measure. Above all, it is human, and all that that entails. It's as sincere as we could make it." Those exposed to the ten tracks comprising the band's tenth full-length will be unable to deny the truth to these words, for lyrically, musically and sonically it is a punishing listen mired in darkness and seething with raw emotion. With multi-instrumentalist Mick Kenney pushing their distinctive hybrid of symphonic black metal, death metal, industrial and grindcore ever forward, Hunt draws lyrical inspiration primarily from the horrors of the First World War, contemporary politics, and the letters of D.H. Lawrence, creating one of the most powerful, timely and unique releases of 2018. "There's a lot that goes into our albums, of course, but it all comes about as a natural result of who we are, and for 'A New Kind of Horror' we felt early on that it was clearly its own thing. It doesn't have to stand in comparison with anything, because to us it's in a class of its own."

Concentric Circles is the 72 minute debut album by progressive UK band Oraton. Featuring a natural, honest production without use of correctional software and sample-replaced drums, the album undoubtably captures a human element that is so lacking in most genres of the current music scene, whilst still sounding tight, rehearsed and energised. With hints of grunge, rock and metal accompanying the progressive roots, the album contains 11 tracks of a sensible length (including a brief introductory track) before concluding with the 22 minute title track that closes in a fitting eponymous, lyrical fashion.

Taking the mythical themes of heavy metal from Led Zeppelin and Iron Maiden, the Japanese band Onmyo-Za goes a step further. The performers, though playing fairly straightforward metal in the vein of an Iron Maiden or Judas Priest, do so in full traditional costume like characters out of a Heian pantheon. Songs deal with matters of yin and yang, elemental powers, mythological and historical themes, with the antique impression bolstered by the use of obscure literary kanji. Musically, the band breaks a bit of ground, with leader and bassist Matatabi taking up a dual vocal line with female singer Kuroneko ("Black Cat"), often showcased in a yin and yang format, and dueling guitarists Maneki and Karukan taking a similar approach to duality.
