Fates Warning - Long Day Good Night

I must admit that if I like Fates Warning for any reason, over any of the other popular prog bands, ie Dream Theater and Queensryche, not to disregard some less popular, but equally artistic contemporaries of theirs is that they somehow always progressed, never resting on their laurels (for too long), or released a patently bad record. They might have experienced slower periods, times when they changed their sound rather drastically, but they always seemed to be artistically driven.

Psychotic Waltz - The God-Shaped Void

It’s quite hard to realize what expectations might be for Psy-Waltz’s return after an absence of more than two decades. Back in the day the released some four albums in quick succession and then, well Buddy Lackey turned into Devon Graves and continued after a weird and lo fi solo, with Dead Soul Tribe and Shadow Theory, exploring different musical landscapes, but not entirely alien at the same time.
