"Ashes", the brand new song from UK legendary progressive band Threshold can be heard below. This single is a radio-edit version while the one that will be featured on the album offers an additional two minutes of play time. "Ashes" comes off the band's new album March Of Progress, which will be available on August 24th via Nuclear Blast. More album details here.
First listen impression: Damian's range and depth is much more impressive than Mac's (R.I.P), whereas Mac's high-range was the better of the two. One can tell that Damian is having a bit more trouble with the higher range. With that in mind, I do get the sense that Damian's singing style here is reminiscent to Mac's, rather than his Extinct sound. Extinct didn't grow on me quickly, this did however. The range Damian brings is just what I was lacking in Dead Reckoning.
The musicianship is top notch, as always, no need to elaborate on that naturally
The file's compression ruins it a bit, can't wait for it to come out. Switching to headphones for further awesomeness.
I just noticed this is a "radio edit" song. I wonder if it's one of those epic 9 minute songs. Would be nice since I love long songs, and despite being somewhat reticent about Damian's return, I really like this one. Really hoping to enjoy the album as much as I enjoyed them when Mac was still around.
