  1. Well, allow me to be first, if I may, since NWOBHM seems somewhat neglected. Saracen, while also being from Matlock (a true biker haunt which is naturally going to appeal to me, as a biker), are a band who truly pushed boundaries and as far back as 1981 (when the album I link to below was released, their first - 42 years ago!!!) was already a true masterpiece that no one who was "into music" knew what to do with. Steve Bettney (vocals) proved not only to have that rocker/heavy metal attitude, but man, he could actually SING. Sure, it may have been like listening to one of your friends being a badass (and not quite knowing how) but he pumped out such energy and enthusiasm that if, even like me, as a lover of the fast and hard thrash, you can overcome the slower pace, but still appreciate the energy and will to experiment and fuck with the norm, you can then surely appreciate Saracen. They were formed in 1976 and released their first album (again, linked below) followed by their second in 1984 (Change of Heart). A third album would require a nearly 20 year wait as it didn't come along until 2003 (Red Sky). Ironically, despite their sound, they would release only two albums in the 1980s and five in the 2000s, possibly attesting to their loyal, if small, fanbase. Many people have opinions about Saracen, and they have also been compared to many bands (my favourite of which, being Yes, which I feel is at least somewhat accurate), but whatever you think, give them a try - they are worth at least a one off listen for the great singing and the heartily interesting and thought-provoking lyrics.

  5. Hey guys,So, after a few years working on my album, it is finally ready to be released, and so released it is! Went through quite a few hiccups in the recording of it, to the point where this last version is actually the third iteration of it. I scrapped four songs from this definitive version, which I will release at some point as “b-sides.”Bandcamp:https://avandra.bandcamp.com/album/tymoraSo, what’s Avandra?Avandra is a one-man (soon to change) progressive metal/progressive rock band from San Juan, PR - a place not thought of as being a mecca of progressive metal and progressive rock. But this is exactly one of the reasons that inspired me to create this album. I hope that my project sparks the curiosity of the metal community in general about the things going on down here.Influences: I have what I call the Holy Trinity: Opeth, Porcupine Tree (SW), and Kevin Moore-era Dream Theater. There are many, many bands that come and go in terms of quick influences (like Russian Circles, which was the band that actually got me to start recording this album in the first place), but those three bands are foundational to my music, and just to who I am in general.The Purpose: Avandra was always kind of a vessel between concepts and imagery that have influenced me throughout my life, and their realization through a musical journey. That’s why I try to stray a bit from the uber-technical side of things, and concentrate much more on all the instruments working together to create ambient pieces that appeal to your emotional and reasonable sides.Did you upload album in mp3?No. I did not. Mp3s tend to kill the quality of the music, so decided to upload it in wav format, for a fuller experience. You can, of course, convert it to mp3 using any of the available online resources, like http://media.io/To understand why I am reluctant to upload my music in mp3 format, see this article:http://www.emusician.com/how-to/1334...on-blues/43156I like the music, but dude, I kinda dislike the vocals!Not a problem! When you buy the digital or physical album, you’ll also get to download the instrumental versions of the songs as well!Can I get the stems for one of your songs? Try to re-mix them?With the purchase of the digital or physical album, PM me and I’ll make sure to get the stems or the song of your choosing to you!And the artwork?You can download the pdf for it, which includes the booklet with the lyrics, yes!Why no FFO (For Fans Of)?When demoing out the songs to a few buddies of mine, they all heard something different: from a “modern version” of Pink Floyd, to the more obvious Dream Theater influences, to obscure ones which I can’t recall at the moment. So, you hear what you wanna hear!What’s next?Besides getting a band together and playing live, the second album is already 90% done. It’ll be released on May 5, 2018 (trying to go Beatles-esque and release two albums a year would kill me). I will try to release a small EP for the end of this year, though.And what's next right now? Probably Fallout 4 or TW3...www.facebook.com/avandrapr
  6. Hey everyone!! Would like to present you my band SILUETLESS. We are from Lithuania and play music which probably can fit into progressive rock/metal genre, but actually it has influences of many other music genres. It's rich in atmospheric synth passages, melodic and dark vocals, heavy riffs and overall dark mood. Our latest album is called DRIFTING, released in October '16. Full album available on youtube (I will attach a video), but you can also check it on many digital platforms. The easiest way to explore the album is probably bandcamp https://siluetless.bandcamp.com/ Enjoy!! And please leave your comments! Thanks!!
