Dream Theater - Dream Theater

Usually a band will dub an opus eponymously when they believe it to be their grand masterpiece and defining moment. For Dream Theater to have done so, in 2013, this probably comes 21 years too late, as they did peak way to early, but also appears to be like, such a pretentious thing to do… as if they have to prove something... to anyone...

Ne Obliviscaris sign with Season of Mist

Season of Mist is proud to announce the signing of Australian progressive, extreme metal outfit NE OBLIVISCARIS! The band stand on their own by infusing their metal with western art music, jazz, and flamenco. With adventurous, progressive and nuanced compositions often exceeding ten minutes in length, NE OBLIVISCARIS add profound depth to a musical proficiency which reaches the highest levels.

The Advent Equation - Limitless Life Reflections

Were I to guess which country this band is coming from, arbitrating by its music style I would probably choose Europe and specifically Scandinavia. I was rather surprised when I found out that The Advent Equation are hailing from Mexico. They have been around since 2008 but they only released an EP on the same year, entitled “Sounds from Within”. Having worked more on their style and especially on combining various things from the music genres they love the most, the time has finally come to present their debut album worldwide.


Hi Mehran. I’m glad we have the chance to talk for your new album “Subrerranea”. It is really an original and state-of-the-art work.
M: Thanks very much and I appreciate the chance to get to talk to you about my new work.
Firstly, do tell us how you decided to form this project. When did it all start?


Hi Robert… I’m sure you feel fine this time period, since the band seems to be in great shape in every part, right?

The Fusion Syndicate - The Fusion Syndicate

Billy Sherwood must be a very busy man lately. For those who are not aware of Billy, I have to tell that he is a producer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and engineer that has played with several bands (Yes, CIRCA:, Lodgic, World Trade, Conspiracy, Yoso, solo) and has also participated in numerous albums. He’s into progressive music, while he likes to blend rock, jazz and fusion parts together.
