A friend of mine is a drummer. Not just a drummer in fact but one of the most talented musicians around. And I'm not just saying that because he's a friend.
Anyway, he's been writing with an excellent guitarist and they've got an album in the offing. There are some demo tracks here.
I did ask what the first track was about as it sounds like a xylophone and got something about it being a good sound effect in return. The other three demos sound really good. It's prog rock/metal and has a bit of a Dream Theater sound about it. Reminds me of the Metropolis Part 1 album.
Anyway, pop along, have a listen and maybe send them some constructive comments.
