Painted In Exile: "We're a metal band, but we're inspired by jazz and blues"
Expect the unexpected when Painted In Exile get their prog on
There was a time, not so long ago, when ‘prog’ was a dirty word. These days, bands like NYC’s Painted In Exile are not just reasserting the enriching, imaginative power of progressive music, but audibly pushing it into uncharted territory. The band’s debut album, The Ordeal, is a staggering piece of work that gives the likes of Between The Buried And Me and The Faceless a run for their money while gleefully hurling all manner of unexpected elements into the band’s dizzying maze of riffs and rhythms.
