Week 7 – Art Rock – An Error of Judgement

Deze week pakken we uit met Spiral Key, een band uit het Verenigd Koninkrijk. De Britse band speelt donkere maar ook melodieuze progressieve metal van de betere soort.

Prog Archives review: ” It’s early in 2018, yet Spiral key have already put a stake in the ground for progressive metal album of the year: it is going to take something quite special to be better than this. Formed in 2012, this is the second release by the band, but their first for Pride & Joy. The band features the distinctive voice and intricate guitarwork of David McCabe and the bass of Ken Wynne (Cut the Wire). (…)

When I first started playing this my immediate thought was Threshold, and each time I played it I came to the same conclusion. But, that is more to do with the music and the style being performed, as when it comes to the vocal melodies they are undoubtedly quite different. But given how long Threshold have been at the peak of the prog metal scene in the UK it isn’t surprising that another band from the same country has been influenced by them.

The songs are hard, heavy, and always incredibly melodic and I found myself continuously being drawn back to this album. It is interesting to see John Mitchell being involved, as it shows just how much melody that the band are providing as his name isn’t one that would normally come to mind when discussing this style of music.”

Naast Spiral Key met An Error of Judgement hebben we deze week: Dream Theater (Train Of Thought), TesseracT (Polaris), Porcupine Tree (In Absentia), Everon (North) & Sanguine Hum (Now We Have Light).
