Interview

Threshold Guitarist Karl Bloom And Bassist Steve Anderson Explain "Legends Of The Shires"

After an initial cult status, progressive metal has grown to become one of the more popular sub-genres for headbanger's these days. The likes of Anathema, Queensryche and especially Dream Theater have all found critical and commercial success and are often viewed as the "thinking man's metal." Hailing from Surrey, Threshold has become one of the most respected and challenging bands in all of progressive music since the release of their debut, "Wounded Land" twenty five years ago.

Now with former vocalist Glynn Morgan back in the fold and their latest record, the double concept album, "Legends Of The Shires" being hailed by many fans as their best, the future looks even brighter than their respected past for the English quintet. At their recent show in London, I had the pleasure of speaking with guitarist Karl Bloom and bass player Steve Anderson to discuss the story, ideas and nature of "Legends Of The Shire," the parallels between man and country, Brexit and more. You can watch the interview in full below.
