This week on the PROGTALKS we are talking to the musicians from the Norwegian band Laughing Stock about their recent album “Zero, acts 1&2”. We speak a little about the highly relevant concept of the album, and what the future holds for the band.

Bruit_TheMachineIsBurning

Bruit ≤ – The machine is burning and now everyone knows it could happen again

This is one of the best debut albums you’re going to listen to, and while still too early, it will not be surprising if it gets “best of the year” nominations.

The Spectre Beneath – The New Identity of Sidney Stone

What we have here, is a very enjoyable hour of multi genre, multi-faceted, captivating progressive power metal. A modern metal epic that maintains the best aspects of each style and component.
