Read "Ad Perpetuum" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Following suit with his previous solo outing Occultus Tramitis (Unicorn, 2013) he aligns his significant wares with highly revered artists, providing the level of support required, not only to pull off the tricky time signatures, but to also add various ...

Read "Occultus Tramitis" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Spaced Out: Spaced Out

Read "Spaced Out" reviewed by Todd S. Jenkins


Spaced Out is a powerful prog-fusion band from Montreal. Formed in '98 by bassist Antoine Fafard, the group draws influences from Steve Vai, Allan Holdsworth and Bruford, but manage to craft their own unique sound in the end. This album could be the soundtrack to a sci-fi epic not yet written. One can imagine the transports ...
