Looking for some epic instrumental metal, replete with big grooves and just the right amount of technicality, to keep your Sunday afternoon going? How about your belated Saturday evening? I've got you covered either way.
The band is Vancouver's Seven Year Storm, brainchild of drummer Sean Lang, and the song I'm starting you with is "Cognition I: Blue Car Syndrome" from Seven Year Storm's EP Aion I. Sean provides the foundation for the aforementioned big grooves, while some of that tasteful technicality comes courtesy of fellow Vancouverite and Archspire guitarist Dean Lamb. Fans of instrumental prog should definitely give these guys a listen.
