Headspace: All That You Fear Is Gone
Headspace? Mindfuck, more like. The second album from this prog-metal powerhouse is a very taxing listen, thanks in no small part to guitarist Pete Rinaldi’s unnerving, cluster-bomb playing style. Hard to believe he was a member of Justin Hawkins’ comedy band, Hot Leg. But he’s not the only star of the show. Step forward Threshold’s Damian Wilson, with his booming, theatrical voice (no wonder he once played the lead in Les Misérables) and Adam Wakeman, son of Rick, a true dervish of the keyboards.
