Wow! I heard these guys were coming to town and did a little listening at their myspace page over the past few days.

Exceptional progressive metal, take a listen. Try Sun of nothing- brutality followed by a sweet spacey section reminiscent of floyd or perhaps PT. Really unique.

I'm a fan. I think I made a best of the year post here and Colors made it in my top 10. Alaska is amazing too.

Well the verdict has been reached and this disc kicks major ass.

Must be heard to be fully appreciated but I would describe it as blend of the Image and words era of dream theater, pantera, Devin townsend and heaping pile of originality and off the wall playing. While there is a ton of really heavy playing and growling, they shift effortlessly into insane progressive jams with lighter vocals in most songs.

Lots of strong songs but my favorite is Ants of the sky.

Colors just may be the best disc of the year and certainly in the top 5...

I just recently bought The Anatomy Of and Colors due to this thread.  The cover album is kind of uneven IMO (I love "Blackened" and "Us and Them", but can hardly stand "Bicycle Race"), but Colors is very good, and is growing on me the more I listen to it.  Thanks to the original poster for starting this thread. smile.gif

Well that was one hell of a show. I hope someone else caught this tour as it was unfucking beleivable. They played most of Colors, Mordecai, a cover by Sepultura and what may have been Selkies ( not sure on that one )

Great players. They will be opening along with 3 for Dream Theater and Opeth this spring.

My drum teacher played me a few snippets of some tracks from Colors tonight. Very interesting stuff. Extremely heavy bass, and a really neat drum solo in one of the songs. I wasn't fond of the growling though... may have to ask for this for Christmas.. wink.gif

Yeah, the drummer is top notch. This is the first group I like that growls for what its worth.  All the lighter vocals came across very well too live. The energy they put out collectively as a group was pretty f@cking intense, ...can't say enough good things about this disc.

Their name is taken from a line in some Counting Crows song??

I may download it first to see if I really like it and then ask for it... not sure. Should I just go out and get it? I haven't heard much that's been labeled prog-metal besides DT and some Fates Warning.

Anyway, yeah, their name is from a Counting Crows lyric line apparently:

From Wikipedia:


The band's name is derived from a section of lyrics in Counting Crows’ song "Ghost Train": "Took the cannonball down to the ocean/Across the desert from the sea to shining sea/I rode a ladder that climbed across the nation/Fifty million feet of earth between the buried and me."

Nice, thanks for digging that info up!  trink39.gif  Not sure what to tell you, about downloadig versus buying it outright but the disc Colors has definitely clicked for me and about half of it is there on their myspace page.

They are pretty bad ass. I can't wait for Prog Nation '08, to see them with DT and Opeth.

Do you not like Opeth Tangy? Strapping Young Lad? Amon Amarth?

What about some of the vocals on Buckethead and Friends?

I do like Devin Townsend and I have heard some growls out of him but what I have heard by Devin thus far is not as "growly" as BTBAM. Then again I only own one Devin disc- Synchestra. Only have heard a few songs by SYL including U Suck. I have heard some Opeth but never really got into what few songs I heard. Maybe I should pick up  one of their Steve Wilson produced discs and give it a shot In terms of Amon Amarth, I've heard the name but never any music. Unfortunately I don't have Buckethead and friends yet. Maybe I should hurry up and get it as I hear its becoming hard to find.

I guess I am starting to appreciate the growling as a outlet but its the music that does it for me with BTBAM.

A part of me just thinks the growling is funny, like when the singer for August Burns Red was warming up in stage I could not resist a chuckle.

Colors is really solid. I've been hearing rumors they might tour with DT and Opeth this spring.
