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.”
