Details On New Album "Wasting Time" Unveiled By Six Minute Century

Houston power rock/metal act Six Minute Century will release the new album "Wasting Time" on October 15th via Nightmare Records. Formed in the summer of 2004, the band has become one of the top power/prog bands in the area. Lead by guitarist Don LaFon (Krucible/Mystic Cross/Logan), the band fuses interesting rhythms with the grooves of more southern style metal and the soaring vocal melodies of Chuck Williams. Which in the end give you something sounding in the vein of Savatage/Dio/Kamelot, with the vocal style of Fates Warning/Dream Theater/TNT.

While all members of S.M.C. are technically proficient, the band does not fit the category of a band trying to impress with how many notes they can play. Rather Six Minute Century prefers to write songs with melody and most of all passion! Which has helped them garner a wider audience than many of today’s prog-metal bands.

Chuck Williams writes many lyrics about historical events that accompany Don LaFon’s musical orchestrations. Six Minute Century’s 2008 debut release "Time Capsules" brought many rave reviews from metal’s underground worldwide. With "Wasting Time" the band aims to build on top of that foundation and continue to climb the ladder of success out of the obscure.

Nightmare Records plans to build awareness about the band in the North American market at ProgPowerUSA festival in Atlanta in two weeks.
