Guest review by
If there is an album that deserves more of a shout or recognition in the progressive metal/rock genre, then you must look to a random American band in the quaint, calm state of Utah, USA, called Hourglass. They have gone through many member changes, but Brick Williams keeps producing some of the best prog metal I've ever heard, especially when Cody Walker's (ex-2007) powerful voice was at the helm during Subconscious. Everyone, everywhere will always state the same favourite progressive metal/rock bands like Dream Theater, Opeth, Tool, Symphony X, Rush, Devin Townsend, Porcupine Tree, Yes, Pink Floyd, Genesis, King Crimson, and others. I always say that is nice, but you need to expand and go beyond the box of these bands...true that there is a ton of awful or boring prog out there, but Hourglass, especially Subconscious, is a band that at least deserves a listen.
