ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This EP is also available on Concrete Prophet's official website (and less expensive too!).

This release has bonus CD-ROM features which include video interviews, live footage and lyrics.

Concrete Prophet spawned from the desire to blend progressive metal with a modern perspective. By fueling their live show with tight performances and memorable songs, Concrete Prophet establishes itself as a compelling group not to be missed.

“We make stripped-down progressive metal,” says singer Mike Newberry. “We balance musical literacy with widespread appeal.”

Though their image, like their music, differs from a typical ‘heavy band,’ a live show contains what you’d expect from influences like Iron Maiden and Dream Theater: tight performances enhanced by a charismatic frontman and a jolt of energy from start to finish.

“We make a large effort to alert the online community about what we have to offer," adds bassist Michael Passen. "Our passion is exposing people to good, melodic, heavy rock.”

Inspiration comes from the fact that most people are unaware the intensity of progressive music can be enjoyed by the casual listener. “We aim to blend the two,” says guitarist Kevin Boenning.

Despite the array of musical experience, compared to their goal, they’re just getting started. “Our purpose involves creating something bigger than the four of us,” says drummer Brian Dobbs. “To develop an entity that has a life of it's own.”

I want more
yes , that's right. I want more from these guys. These three songs are killer and if they have any more songs in them they need to get them out for our consumption soon.

A "Must Have" CD For Progressive Metal Rock fans!
Concrete Prophet rocks! A tight, well done production that will leave you wanting more. I hope this is only a taste of more to come from this fine band. Give yourself and ears a treat, buy this pure "ear candy" CD!

A runaway thrill ride
I'm not sure if I'm more impressed with this thinking-man's metal musical attack or with the band itself. Yes, I've heard these talented guys live and have had the pleasure to chat with them. This is not your typical heavy metal band. These guys are not only progressive musicians, but they're also progressive thinkers. Sort of like Ozzy gets a brain transplant. Enough about the band, let's talk about The Conquest, a song that has replaced White Zombie's More Human Than Human as my favorite heavy metal song. Close your eyes and imagine you're on a out-of control, run-away roller coaster. The Conquest begins with Kevin Boenning's opening riff with bassist Michael Passen thumping along for the ride. Drummer extraordinaire Brian Dobbs then kicks things into overdrive. Just as you think the ride is slowing down, vocalist Mike Newberry lets you know there will be no such nonsense. Newberry's growls and howls re-energize the ride,sending us on a relentless head-pounding journey. Again, you think the ride is ending until Passen's bass bottoms it up a notch. Guitarist Boenning jumps in with some amazing fuzz tones, and off we go again. Remember, this is a run-away ride ... there's no geetin' off! This musical coaster is running full-throttle, twisting and turning with no end in sight.
Give it a listen. But remember to buckle up first!
