So this is the live show that “got away”. This is an album good enough that I was going to go to Germany to see performed as a musical but I switched jobs and had no vacation time to see it.

If you doubt my high rating for this album consider the fact that this debut album by the amazingly talented Andy Kuntz was able to run in Germany for a 8 week run. Totally unprecedented achievement.

This album which was a cathartic project by Andy due to losing his father and two friends in a very short time, is an album that should be heard by all progressive metal fans. For those of you who don’t skew to liking progressive metal it is still worth a listen as this is an album that is very melodic as well. Think the heaviest porcupine tree album with a heavy metal voice on top of it.

So here we are one of my favorite voice in prog with a wonderful melodic and heavy piece of work. Go check out the DVD or the CD.

The DVD does have a catchy showtune added to it and a lot of German speaking with English subtitles. Really wonderful either one.
