Sorry I haven't been posting so much lately, but here's a few new bands for y'all to check out: Behold... the Arctopus http://www.beholdthearctopus.com Awesome awesome new instrumental tech metal band from New York. They only got 2 songs recorded so far, but you absolutely have to hear them. They originally posted the songs under the name "Drummer Needed", but they now have real drums instead of a drum machine and the production is much better. Canvas Solaris http://www.canvassolaris.com Another excellent instrumental tech metal band from South Carolina. Their site is under construction, but you can hear them at http://www.tribunalrecords.net/mp3/Canvas_Solaris__Camera_Obscura.mp3. There is another Canvas Solaris on mp3.com from Georgia, so I'm downloading them now (they are listed as progressive metal, but I think it's a different band because they list a vocalist). Ohm http://www.chrispoland.com Chris Poland's new intrumental fusion trio. It ain't metallic, but I sure love their debut. Bone http://www.doctornerve.org Side project for the guitarist from Doctor Nerve. Sounds very promising from the samples, that is, if you like Doctor Nerve. He also has a couple other side projects listed there "Body Parts" and "Binky Boy" which sound pretty cool (Binky Boy is 4 guitars and nothing else). Hypnotheticall - http://www.hypnotheticall.com Excellent tech band from Italy. They use clean, death, and black vox, if memory serves. I'm thinking about ordering their discs. There's more for later, but those are all worth your time to check out.
