Sons Of Apollo - MMXX

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.
 

Chiasmata release music video for new single “Foreboding”

Progressive metal quartet Chiasmata have released the video for their latest single “Foreboding”, the third taste of their forthcoming release. 

The video for “Foreboding” explores the song title in a fitting manner.

Unable to shake the feeling that something is wrong, it becomes abundantly clear that this release deals with a struggle of powerlessness.
