Earthside – A Dream in Static


Earthside is a new band in the prog-metal scene, featuring talented musicians that came together to create something they call “cinematic rock”. This term perfectly captures the sound that the band is going for. The band blends symphonic, soundtrack-like atmospheres with the heaviness and technical difficulty of progressive music.
It’s evident in the first track that this isn’t just casual progressive metal. The tone that’s set in the first track ‘The Closest I’ve Come’ is what the whole album is about. The great thing about this album is that there’s a lot of variety, without overdoing it.
