16:00 - Verdun_sc @ flight - I know the lass who sings and plays guitar, and vaguely know the bassist. Both of 'em say there are bits of the album that are also heavier than anything they've done (though we'll see what that means).
15:55 - Redn1ght It's funny how nobody has tried to mimic or play like Kansas for years, while on topic of Prog Rock.
15:47 - Apothecary I wouldn't mind that at all, actually, they do their prog rock thing quite well. As long as it's more along the lines of 70s King Crimson, Yes, etc., and not some djenty bullshit, I'm good
15:41 - flightoficarus Soooo...it seems that Dreadnought completely abandoned their metal elements this album.
15:19 - Apothecary And more awesome psychedelic funeral doom that was actually mastered by Greg Chandler [link]
15:16 - Apothecary Nah, you be trippin, Red. The Maniacal Vale is definitely one of the few albums out there that deserves about every bit of praise it gets
15:05 - Redn1ght Meh, not really that interesting.
