Hot New Band: Earthside
Earthside’s big ideas are pushing them to the top of the prog metal pile.
An extraordinary labour of love more than two-and-a-half years in the making, Earthside’s debut album, A Dream In Static, screams its creators’ prog metal ambition from the rooftops.
With notable assistance from the Moscow Studio Symphony Orchestra – check out the band’s Mob Mentality video for proof – and guest appearances by Soilwork’s Björn Strid and Lajon Witherspoon of Sevendust, this is a record that thinks big and delivers bigger.
“We’ve always been ambitious,” explains keyboard player Frank Sacramone. “But this album became much more ambitious than we’d planned! The hardest part was not being able to release any music for three years. Now that it’s been released, I’m starting to see a reward from our efforts when people tell us that they’ve made a connection with our music.”
