    ...did he really? That's an interesting combination. I've heard his solo shit off of Terria and loved it, not much like S-X though. He's actually a pretty incredible musician all around, very talented; I love his solo stuff - don't really care for SYL though, saw the live w/ Soilwork a few years back and was just a little too crazy for me personally...

    The first link I must have skipped...LOVED this band dude. This vocalist is pretty badass...a nice lower tone w/ some nice raspy growls...lovin' it! Getting the newest album now! ..and this is Barlow singing in this band? Because what Iced Earth I've heard is NOTHING like this...but this dude is the closest to Allen I have heard yet, he's got a nice growly powerful voice...its excellent.
    Same thing with Seventh Wonder...great vocals with some power, never knew they existed - thank god I asked for help lol.

    estYMaj - Thank you for suggesting Myrath...didn't get a chance to catch this one until now and I must say they kick complete ass..cannot believe this is their first album. They sound a LOT like S-X which is of course, amazing for what I'm looking for at the moment. Great suggestion!

    Hell yes, Barlow is my favorite vocalist. Deep singing tone, growly/scary when he has to be, and can hit the fifth register with ease.
    Check out the Iced Earth albums Dark Saga, Something Wicked, Horror Show, Crucible of Man, and of course! Alive In Athens. The band really shines live.

    Have you heard of Pandora? www.pandora.com Its given me some cool reccomendations. The only dumb thing about it is that it only allows you to skip 3 or 4 songs an hour.

    I think they changed singers after the cd was recorded so I can't wait to hear the new singer on the upcoming cd, I think he's the one we see in some Youtube live videos.

    I'm not sure if they were mentioned before, but Adagio reminds me of Symphony X quite alot, their new album Archangels in Black has been hit or miss with alot of people with the addition of black metal elements, but their older stuff is alot like Symphony X.



    That is their song fire forever

    I can't listen to these new prog metal groups, they all just sound the same to me. All pretentiousness and very little originality. DT sucks nowadays, so the only prog metal band I still am hopeful about is SX.;)

    (Sorry this is so long But I thought some would find this interesting
    The second message answers your question about the singer)

    Just in case your still interested In these guys I wrote there manager to ask a few questions heres the 2 reply's i got
    Email 1

    Thank you for your message
    I'm sorry that the release of DESERT CALL(Myrath new album) is delayed but I hope that your understand that it's beyond the band control
    here is what happed:
    the recoding of the album was completed in November 2008
    because our producer(kevin codfert was busy with the release of Adagio album (he is their keyboard player and co-producer )he could not start mixing the album until March 2009
    mixing of the album was completed in may 2009 and mastering in June 2009
    because of summer vacation and summer festival s we had to wait till they are over to release the album
    in the meantime we have received several proposals from various labels(including Brennus music our current label)

    We are currently evaluating. All the offers and Hopefully we will sign with one of them during this month and release the album sometime in October 2009
    We are very frustrated that it has taken so long but the music industry is a very slow process and we want to make sure to sign with the right label
    I will keep you updated as soon as I have further details and trust that you understand the reasons which led to this delay
    Thank you for your friendship and support

    Best Regards
    Ahmed Ben Arbia
    Myrath manager

    email 2

    In the album HOPE the lead singer is Elyes Bouchoucha who is also the keyboards player (thats him on the streaming audio on myspace)

    Since august 2007 we have a new lead singer his name is zaher zorgati (he is the one who sings in the video you can watch in Myrath Myspace)

    Zaher zorgati is abvviously the lead singer on the new album- he added the melodic touch we were looking for but then of course it will all come down to personal taste some (mainly American fans) may prefer elyes type of singing probably because he reminds Russel Allen (he is still an important member of the band ,he does the back vocals and plays the keyboards)

    It was never our intention to get a new singer However we had to think of the live performances so we needed a front man especially that elyes can no longer fully concentrate on keyboards, sing and make the show at the same time so when zaher became available we all agreed to ask him to join the band.(zaher being the most respected metal singer in Tunisia)

    Elyes will continue though to sing a couple of songs from the hope album and do the backing vocals in all Myrath concerts

    Zaher style of singing is a lot more melodic and suits better the new approach to metal we were looking for which consists in mixing western metal with traditional Arabic tunes

    To this respect we have tried to come up with our own style by staying away from the symphony x influence mainly on the vocals side even though we are aware that most people like HOPE because it reminds them of symphony x ,(in a couple of tracks of the new album the symphonyx influence is still present)

    like any other emerging band,we had to move on knowing that desert call (the follow up album to HOPE, the debut album) is always difficult in terms of fans expectations we may desapponit some fans but we are confident that we will win a lot more especially that the album is very balanced and is still in line with HOPE but much better in all aspects

    I trust that it will meet your expectations

    Well, I am going to hit you up with some moodier and more experimental music: Ulver and Kwoon. These bands are not similar, except in the sense that they have a very unique musical vision. (BTW, the Kwoon video is amazing and you should give it a watch even if you hate the music.)

    Kwoon were really good, thanks for the tip. Wonderful video. Ulver are great but I prefer Arcturus.


    Kalisia released an ace album called Cybion.

    This is the first song after the intro.

    That's a pretty good tune. The synth work is great - I dig it.

    adagio has been mentioned but there really an amazing band, definitely one that reminds me the most of SX

    i have all their cd's but i think archangels in black, the new one and dominate are their two best.
