07. The Claustrophobia Of Time

Starting out as a yet another neo-prog rock album, it goes into full-fledged folk-prog in the second track, and moves on to tackle prog metal for the rest of the album, even taking a stroll in the Symphony X territories. Who are these guys? I've no idea - every one of them a pseudonym. But at some point it's either Russell Allen singing, or someone does a really good impersonation of him. A fun and a good record, albeit a bit disjointed one.

Sample a teaser at ReverbNation.

I don't think it much like Symphony X, but still very energetic, creative, and fun non-metal prog.

And I see the blade fall down upon the head of lord in heaven
And Darkness falls upon the end of history
While I drink the milk of the Black Goddess and cry over the mankind

Black Moses is my name...

Man, this album really has everything a prog fan would love.

It has touches of classic prog, modern prog, prog metal, folk prog, neoclassical...
You can just feel the soul, artistry, technicality and well... just the overall fun of the album!

I never thought I would take to liking this album so quickly, but after only a few listens to, this album has blown me right away!

Fright Pig, whoever you guys are, if you keep making music like this, then I will follow you until the butcher finally gets you!
Sometimes you just need to roll the dice and look away.

Top 5 of the year for me, including every single genre. Really great music they put together here.

The only track i dislike is Re:Creation, really the instrumental tracks are just out of the charts.

Hits total: 4412 | This month: 40
