Course Of Fate is a newcomer that comes from Norway and was originally founded in 2015, even though an unofficial version of the band existed years before. This sextet seems to be influenced by various prog metal bands, such as Queensrÿche, Evegrey, Fates Warning, Dream Theater and Circus Maximus among others. I do not usually refer to a band’s influences, but in this occasion I wanted to give you an idea of what to expect.
Continuing our ongoing quest to release albums by the most inventive and exciting prog musicians we can find, Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the addition of Sweden’s Paralydium to the label. It’s fair to say that there are few bands that can or will match Paralydium’s delivery of melodic, rhythmical, and powerful songs. Their debut album, “Worlds Beyond” will showcase this very claim.

Course Of Fate have set to release their first full length album “Mindweaver”, on May 15th, 2020, via ROAR! Rock of Angels Records!
This 45 min conceptual piece of music was born back in 2014, when Kenneth Henriksen started making new songs right after the release of the band’s “Cognizance” EP. After finishing a few songs it became obvious that the band wanted the album to have a red line throughout, inspired by albums like “The Wall”, “Scenes From A Memory” and “Operation Mindcrime”.
Dyscordia are a Belgian bunch, who probably make a bit more fuss and do a bit more namedropping about themselves and their collaborations than what would seem logical and right. They’ve been going on for the better part of the past decade and in that time they’ve released another two albums preceded by an EP, all overseen by Jens Borgen (Opeth, Paradise Lost, Katatonia, etc.), supported bigger bands locally and performed at many smaller festivals.
I thought the debut of Sons Of Apollo was a pretty decent prog metal album, from a supergroup that felt a little disjointed, despite all of the people involved in it being awesome players. “MMXX” comes a short time after, with a tour under the band’s collective belt and a Jeff Scott Soto that seems to be working throughout the year on different projects, yet is able to afford the material fairly spirited promotions.
