The End is begun
Style: Progressive Rock
Release date: July 20th 2007

If you define your progressive rock by bands like Coheed and Cambria, Tool and Porcupine Tree then make sure you take a long and hard listen to this American band the next time you visit your local record shop.

Three could easily go as Coheed and Cambria's illegitimate child conceived while Tool was blasting out of the stereo. They create the same kind of atmosphere, creating big soundscapes with a fine balance between the E-guitar and the acoustic guitar and have just like the before mentioned bands a very charismatic vocalist, who uses his voice with great variation.

Three belongs in the same segment as those bands, but have carved their own little niche and sounds fresh and innovative. They represent a very interesting wave of new and upcoming progressive rock acts that breathe new and fresh air into the scene...

Quite a refreshing experience and a nice surprise for me, it's always nice to be caught a bit off guard by something new and positive.

Good one!
