1945 is a four piece progressive metal band from Dallas, Texas. Pulling influence from all styles and genres of music, 1945 creates a dynamic, intricate approach to progressive technical metal. The bands first release, "Restless," provides intense, aggressive passages as well as soft, clean parts and everything in between. Dynamics, melody and harmony are consistent and strong throughout, "Restless."
"Just three guys- a singer, a drummer and a guitarist-- 1945 nevertheless manages to produce one helluva racket. The reluctant star is guitarist Andrew McMillan, who doesn't just play an eight-string but owns it, tapping, pulling off, straiking harmonics, rocking jazz chords, basically, conjuring up his own metallic orchestra with every move."

"1945 is loud and heavy- and amazing to watch in person. Young Andrew McMillan's mercurial prestidigitation on the eight-string guitar will flip your wig."
