Like sitting in a garage in 1971 listening to your guitarmony addicted uncle's band practice before they found their singer.
An organic, flowing style of progressive metal with bold rock buildups, which also merges into the realms of epic, classic doom. Comprised of vocalist/bassist Sean Bolton, lead guitarist Lydia Giordano and drummer Ruston Grosse (former Rumpelstiltskin Grinder, Woe, and touring drummer for Master).
Described as visceral beautifully-executed prog metal Surgeon inhabit a rare space that could attract rock radio attention as well as a good share of the trve among us. Surgeon is set to release their second album, Chemical Reign, in May 19th 2013.
The album mixes hooks with intricate melodies that help in crafting each song as an individual piece of art, creating a consistent album that is ambitious and bold. The album captures the raw energy that the band unleashes live; as the three seasoned musicians have become known throughout the Philadelphia region.
"I don’t know how we got to this point. Maybe a bunch of dudes in
Washington, D.C., with Van Halen posters on their walls and crushed
Coors cans on the floor said, “Screw it. This will always be Ian
MacKaye’s town. Let’s just shred." Thus, Midnight Eye, the hybridized
power-NWOBHM-progressive-thrash metal band with modded Jackson guitars
(probably), a penchant for King Diamond-style wails and Evil Chuck
switchbacks, plus a severely wry sense of humor. Pure shred escapism."
-Lars Gotrich (NPR Music)
This is a diverse band , they incorporate Thrash, Death, and Black metal into their style. This makes for a somewhat bizarre, experimental form of Extreme metal, that is still brutal and very memorable. This is a pure headbanging satisfaction!
