"Tasting The Tears" is the ninth studio album from prog metal outfit Eldritch, and its due out on February 17th. The following press release was also issued about the album:

"This time the whole band worked together as a team, writing 11 brand new tracks melting each member’s influences into one direction.

"The result is 100% Eldritch: powerful guitars, melodic tunes and technical instrumental parts perfectly blended into a classic progressive album with hard rock influences, thrashy and dark at intervals but, most importantly, remarkable in its own, unique way.

"The lyrics talk about love. Not standard love between two partners, but love in all its forms. Something the band have never done before.

"Tasting The Tears was produced by Eugene Simone at ES Studios in Livorno, Italy. Mixing and mastering duties were handled by Simone Mularoni (DGM) at Domination Studios in San Marino, Italy." More...

ProgPower USA XII: Day One

Friday began early in the day for the ProgPower crowd when US-based Creation’s End took the stage at around 2:40. Italian Guitarist Marco Sfogli got the crowd warmed up with some serious movement on his fretboard. Rhythm guitarist Rudy Albert and bassist Joe Black pulled on their best game faces for the early crowd. Vocalist Mike DiMeo had a nice stage presence and belted it out there. The set was a bit short, but as an opener, it had to be. Nevertheless, the band opened the day well without a hitch.

After the band wrapped its set, the reunited US band Sanctuary, featuring Warrell Dane and Jim Sheppard from Nevermore, was immediately in the lobby for a signing. Unfortunately, the band schedule and the signing schedule (both published in the very cool ProgPower program book given to attendees) did not see eye to eye. The bands reached a half-hour to forty-five minutes behind schedule throughout the day, so the signing sessions often took place during a band’s set. This made for tough decisions like: “Do I stay through the end of Voyager’s set or do I go get Ihsahn’s autograph?”

Darkwater had taken the stage shortly after. The Swedish group was well-received and performed their variety of progressive melodic metal to a crowd that obviously appreciated, judging by their reaction to Evergrey the night before. The band had an aesthetic that begged to be watched closely as the purple lights fell on them for certain songs. Just after, I met with Red Circuit’s keyboardist, Marcus Teske, for an interview in the adjacent club, Vinyl. For the ProgPower show, Vinyl was converted into a merchandise room with everything a progressive fan could want. I was to go broke a few hours later because of this. More...
