Biography

There are at least 6 artists with the name Redemption:

1) Redemption is at the forefront of the US progressive metal scene. Founded by guitarist / songwriter Nick Van Dyk, Redemption features legendary vocalist Ray Alder of Fates Warning, guitarist Bernie Versailles of Agent Steel, bassist Sean Andrews and drummer Chris Quirartewho is also in the progressive metal band Prymary.

After releasing their eponymously titled debut release in 2003 on Sensory Records (a release which featured guest appearances from Mark Zonder of Fates Warning and Jason Rullo and Michael Romeo from Symphony X), van Dyk made a significang statement with 2005’s follow-up, The Fullness of Time, the first CD featuring Alder as a full-time band member and featuring the production of Tommy Newton (UFO, Conception, Helloween). Garnering acclaim from the press and the public, The Fullness of Time cemented Redemption position as an up-and-coming force in progressive metal.

In 2006 the band signed a multi-album worldwide deal with Inside Out Music, and in 2007 released its third CD, The Origins Of Ruin, again produced by Newton. After headlining the Headway Festival in Amsterdam, the band embarked on a five-week North American tour as direct support for Dream Theater. Playing for thousands of fans a night and establishing a reputation as a compelling live act in addition to a top studio group, Redemption’s momentum is building.

    @comicsnut I can always admire the simplicity in their musical structure while complexity is laid underneath in a way that makes the music totally enjoyable listening to. Unlike recent Dream Theater Nick Van Dyk and the other guys never come up with unrelated instrumental parts and effortless tries to make music long. Nick Van Dyk just knows where to go and man, he does it excellently. Music seems to be floating in his mind while he makes them a solid powerful progressive metal. He's one of the best music arrangers and composers i've ever known!

    Seriously....When. When. When. When will these guys come to the Boston area? I NEED to see these guys live.

    #aaamiri Agreed. The torch has been passed from DT to these guys. No vocalist in the world can convey the emotion behind these lyrics like Alder.

    Everyday you build the wall and I'm trying to break through. Brick by brick I'll tear it down until I reach the other side of you.
