So I met this guy at work and discovered he is a local musician. As my faithful readers know, I am a huge hard rock and metal fan and love to dig into different things. Chad Novell is in a band called Fibonacci Sequence, as well as a Netherlands-based band called Mercy Isle (also worth a listen!) Feel free to look up the term if you don’t know what it means (I have yet to hear the story behind how the band came to name the group such an intriguing name).
All I know right now is that this is some pretty good stuff. Great musicianship, high-end production, wonderfully flowing melodies, and very cool package consisting of double vinyl with booklet and phenomenal artwork and photography. Top notch!
The music defines itself far better than I ever could so stop by the website and sample the epic pieces then buy the CD or vinyl. Best thing I bought this year outside of Maiden’s The Book of Souls. This is some very tasty prog rock in the vein of Savatage and Trans Siberian Orchestra, with a splash of vintage European prog rock.
I also know these guys have played in the WMSE studio and you all know my affinity for Tom Crawford and crew over at WMSE.
You never know, one of these tasty tunes just might end up on one of my future WMSE shows!
Thanks for dropping by!
