Synaesthesia: Change support band for The Bedford gig.

New progressive rock band Synaesthesia have made the following announcement:

ANNOUNCEMENT - We are amending our recent gig announcement.
We are still performing at The Bedford in Balham, London but unfortunately, no longer with The Gift. Instead, we will now be headlining and Fuzzy Nautilus will be supporting us. We're really looking forward to this as it will be our first headlining show. On top of this, our second 'proper gig' since supporting IQ at De Boerderij in Holland for their Christmas Show last year as we have only done festival slots since.
We will be performing our headlining show in The Globe Theatre room at The Bedford on the 30th of November later this year. We welcome everyone to join us and enjoy themselves as much as we'll enjoy performing. Due to the small nature of the venue, it will be intimate and interactive. Those who attended Resonance Festival will be familiar with this stage as it was the Prog Stage over the course of the festival.
We will announce further details such as ticket prices in the near future. In the meanwhile, please do spread the word and keep the date in your diaries. It would mean the world for us to see and meet you guys at our first headlining show.
Stay tuned!

Xerath: Review of new album III posted.

ThisIsNotAScene have posted a review of Xerath's new album III. It was written by Wade Reitz and below id an extract:

Xerath has always been in to creating a big sound on their records. If you are familiar with the band’s previous albums, “I” and “II,” you will know what I am talking about. Press play and prepare to get your hair blown back. Richard Thomson‘s vocal acrobatics are something to behold on “III.” He emanates guttural growls, mid-range blasts, glorious clean melodies, and shrieks that could rival the mighty Devin Townsend himself. You can imagine he looks much like the form depicted on the album cover; arms out stretched, face to the sky, with the world crumbling around him when he sings. It is like the power of his voice and the rest of Xerath are what is causing the destruction. Bassist Christopher Clark lays down heavy grooves underneath these powerful vocals and synth melodies on tracks like opener ‘I Hold Dominion’ and ‘Ironclad.’ New guitarist Conor McGouran rips. He can groove with Clark like on ‘I Hunt for the Weak’ and ‘Demigod Doctrine,’ plow through some vicious riffs like on tracks ‘2053’ and ‘Autonomous,’ or a sweet solo like on ‘Sentinels.’ Pittman’s work behind the drum kit is superb. His ability to follow the ebb and flow of the dynamics from track to track is the glue that keeps everything from flying apart. ‘Passenger’ is a great example of his handiwork.

Xerath “III” is like the blast from an atomic bomb; powerful, majestic, beautiful, and destructive. Excellent production quality puts a razor edge on an already sharp collection of quality metal. “III” takes all that Xerath has done before to the next level. This isXerath at 11 and they don’t seem like they are planning on turning it down.
