The Real Now
Melodic, accessible moderm american metal. Good grooves, a little edge and melodic.
This was originally self released in July then pulled back as they got signed to M-Theory Audio… now it’s out for the masses… Their first album with their new female singer… music is the same heavy progressive death metal type stuff they’ve done, haven’t skipped a beat (they were ahead of their time anyway!)… Stu Block has some big vocal shoes to fill and this Amanda Kiernan fills them perfect with a mix of harsh and clean vox. Great stuff!
