Influences And Recollections of a Musical Mind

Although AVATAR have been a band since 2001, they have only crossed my radar fairly recently. I jumped right in and ordered their last 4 cds and saw them literally destroy a packed house at an intimate club earlier this evening, so although I can’t say they are a long term influence yet, they certainly will be. I could have chosen any of the 4 recordings I purchased, but Hail The Apocalypse is a fine place to start. Every member of this progressive metal powerhouse is pulling his weight with spot-on musicianship, and the incomparable Johannes Eckerström on lead vocals out in front. I haven’t been this excited about a band in a long, long time. Check them out with a quickness, you’ll be glad you did!
