Neumeister and Curley spent nearly three years perfecting and recording the album that would become The Myth of Sisyphus. In that time, they went from jamming in a dingy basement, playing under-produced avant-metal, to being expert purveyors of highbrow progressive compositions. They also got the chance to be working with the likes of legendary mixer Jim Morris (Iced Earth, Savatage, Crimson Glory) and mastering engineer Maor Appelbaum (Cynic, Halford, Therion), who quotes “If you take the style ‘Prog Metal‘ and change the word Prog to Drama you will get ‘Drama Metal‘ and that’s what this music sounds like – It’s changing every few seconds and it throws you to different places - ups, downs and sideways”
"The Myth of Sisyphus" has finally been released! The CD is in retail stores across Europe and available via online retailers, as well as digitally through iTunes and other download services worldwide!
We are proud to announce that the video for “Rising Tides in Still Water” off of the forthcoming “The Myth of Sisyphus” is nearing completion! The video is sure to raise some eyebrows as it weaves a tale of suspense and drama that is most appropriate for a Theater of the Absurd track. Official premiere information will follow soon.
