Bazillion Points Publishing has announced details regarding its forthcoming release of Jeff Wagner's progressive metal book, titled "Mean Deviation." "Mean Deviation" includes a forward written by progressive rock mastermind and founder of Porcupine Tree Steven Wilson.
Author Jeff Wagner commented by saying:
"'Mean Deviation' highlights many impossibly scattered bands and movements that widened the scope of the heavy metal genre. To some, progressive metal starts with Dream Theater and ends with an interminable stream of bands that sound like Dream Theater. By my interpretation, the term ‘progressive metal’ allows for consideration of cosmic post-black metal band In the Woods, avant-garde metal surrealists Thought Industry, and those obscure purveyors of corrupted Swedish death metal, Carbonized-along with more obvious entries such as Fates Warning, Opeth, and, of course, Dream Theater."
