Progressive metal

Progressive metal is a subgenre of heavy metal, which blends the powerful, guitar-driven sound of metal with the complex compositional structures, odd time signatures, and intricate instrumental playing of progressive rock. Progressive metal is guitar-driven and often features varying (and sometimes sudden) changes in time signatures. The genre is also known for lending itself to complex and extended guitar solos. Consequently, progressive metal songs can become relatively long. Read more…|Edit this Artist photo: The Ocean

    Hey all -- former Gordian Knot guitarist Glenn Snelwar here. I thought you all might be interested in the new disc. It's called Circadian Rhythm Disorder, and it's written entirely to a 51-minute drum track Marco Minnemann had recorded in one take (his 'Normalizer 2' project). The entire 51 minutes is intended to be played without any breaks in between the tracks. Despite it being a drum 'solo', I tried to compose a cohesive set of tracks that follow the premise of the 'At War With Self' project - multiple styles, instrumentation and moods across the span of the tracks. The disc is available on cdbaby, iTunes and amazon. It's also up on Soundcloud to stream in it's entirety if you want to take a listen (and, on lastFM soon...) More info on this At War With Self disc and other releases available at my site Thanks! Glenn
