Psychotic Waltz were one of the most underrated progressive metal bands of their era. While most of the group's early-'90s peers (primarily Queensrÿche, Fates Warning, and Dream Theater) were still performing traditional heavy metal with more cerebral lyrics, technical expertise, and a '70s prog rock aesthetic, Psychotic Waltz and a few other, mostly lesser-known outfits were actually, truly engaged in "progressing" the state of heavy metal into altogether novel stylistic combinations. Alas, as is often the case with such groundbreaking pioneers, the band proved a little too intractable for the mainstream music marketplace and met with a premature demise after years of meager financial and critical reward.

Drawn together by a shared love of heavy metal and progressive rock, Riverside emerged in the early 2000s in Warsaw, Poland. Founded by mutual friends who intended to use their backgrounds in metal to explore new territory in prog rock along the lines of Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, and Tool, the quartet began creating spacious and experimental music with a metal edge on their 2003 debut, Out of Myself. They hit their stride in the late 2000s, topping the Polish charts in 2009 with their fourth full-length outing, Anno Domini High Definition. The untimely death of guitarist Piotr Grudziński in 2016 put the band's future in jeopardy, but they reconvened in 2018 as a trio for the studio LP Wasteland…

Written and recorded during the ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic, “Escape Of The Phoenix“ came to life according to plans that had been laid out in 2019. Englund and drummer Jonas Ekdahl began composing the songs in January, creating a foundation for the album before EVERGREY gathered together and arranged the songs as a group. Unlike a typical creative process, which is often interrupted by appointments, travelling and one-off shows, lockdown requirements gave the band much needed time to work unhindered. The result is 11 songs that embody everything EVERGREY fans have to expect, albeit “a more metal version of “The Atlantic”, with songs that are more direct” according to Englund and producer Jacob Hansen. “Escape Of The Phoenix” continues to showcase Englund as a powerful lyricist as he once again digs deep into himself, only this time he wasn't restricted by the story developed and told over the previous three albums. With this new freedom he was able to write about whatever came to mind, with subjects ranging from intensely personal, his view of the world, mankind, and personal relationships.

HYPNO5E have forged the term “cinematic metal” with their truly epic- scope compositions, oftentimes exceeding not only the 10- but the 20-minutes mark, merging elements of contemporary metal with latin folk and soundtrack-score like sonic landscapes. After the acoustic special album “Alba - Les Ombres Errantes” (2018), the Southern French quartet are now returning with a more “typical” HYPNO5E record, if there is such a thing: their 5th album, “A Distant (Dark) Source”, is the second part of a diptych album project. Each part will be released separately, starting with the second one.

Released in 1997, Violent Machine is the 10th recording by virtuoso guitarist/keyboardist Tony MacAlpine. This record was a musical departure for MacAlpine, as he explored a different direction, incorporating more of a fusion jazz sound into his metal/neo-classical contexts, but all the while capturing his trademark guitar style. Anyone who has heard MacAlpine play live knows what an incredible keyboardist he is – and this is the first record that Tony has released that displays his virtuosity on what is his primary instrument. The CD was recorded in the summer of 1996 in Los Angeles and features Mike Teranna on Drums (Yngwie Malmsteen, Rage), Kevin Chown on bass and MacAlpine on guitar and keyboards.
