Blitz/Portnoy/Menghi/Demmel… some american metal legends hung out in Portnoy’s basement one weekend and made a covers album! While staying close to the original sound, they all put their own touches on each song and kind of metal-ifyed them a bit. Cool stuff!

Already had one song, but now the full… yes. these guys are pushing the prog metal, keeping it chill in parts, going full metal in others, and just 100% prog. Glad to have this band!

A black metal attitude, but music is a bit more downtempo, a little cold feeling, but not all shrieky and blast beats, a kind of gloom/doomy feel.
