    Animals as Leaders are rightly considered the perennial instrumental prog metal band as of this moment. However, it’s hard to escape the fact that their songs are showcases and not really songs.

  • Hostage Calm: Die On Stage

    Hostage-Calm-2014

    I believe that for a record to be considered timeless, it must be properly timed.

    It’s hard to say what sort of musical outlet Maitland is and give an accurate description. I’ve seen the band take on a varying number of people on stage, but every time I’m captivated by the gorgeous music they make. I recently had a chance to chat with singer, guitarist, and songwriter Josh Hines to…

    Constructing a worthy record is always difficult after being absent from the music community for a prolonged period of time. Whenever a fan base hears their old favorite band is reuniting, hopes and expectations shoot through the roof, putting a tremendous amount of pressure on the band members to deliver a top-notch album. Death From…
