Patrick Saad’s Top Releases of September 2014
Evergrey – Hymns For The Broken
Recommended tracks: King of Errors.
For those who don’t know, Evergrey is one of those good yet not “famous” Prog bands that have a good career and a unique style. “Hymns for the Broken” is their 9th release and a cool modern take on the “standard” Evergrey sound. Expect great riffs, cool symphonic parts (of course with piano) and the trademark vocals of frontman Tom S. Englund (who happens to be a kickass guitarist)! This is Evergrey’s comeback!
For fans of: Symphonic Prog, Swedish Metal.
The Contortionist – Language
Recommended tracks: Language I: Intuition.
Here’s a cool new find for you Prog/Experimental fans. Cynic fans will love this album, the vocals are chill, the music itself is very fresh sounding with focus on harmony, melody and song composing! Heavy Metal fans keep out, this is for patient music listeners who enjoy moods, ambient/atmospheric and amazing buildups.
“Language” could be a contender for my top releases of 2014.
For fans of: Cynic, Progressive Metal, Post Metal.
