In Metal Evolution's finale sneak, Sam sits with Michael Giles of King Crimson and gets feedback from Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett on why the group was influential.
Where is doom and black metal? Way more prominent in the evolution of metal than any band associated with "nu metal". Black Sabbath's bluesy riffs correlate directly to bands like Pentagram and Sleep which were just a few bands at the emerging doom/stoner metal culture.
Wait, did he just say Mastodon wrote the first concept prog metal album of the new millennium ? Sam truly knows nothing about PROG METAL if he honestly believes that. there were so many bands coming out with great concept albums before. Pain of Salvation released the perfect element, Remedy Lane and BE all before Mastadon's album.
too much time on rush. should of had an opeth interview!
You forgot some extremely important bands Fates Warning & King's X. Also the history of Savatage and how their producer Paul O'Neill created Trans Siberian Orchestra. TSO sells out arena's and have taken progressive music in a very different direction, getting back to King's X there amazing musicianship, unique sound and beautiful melodies & Fates Warning interlocking samples and electric drum sounds into the equation with Mark Zonder.
Great episode on progressive metal but I think that King's X deserved some attention.
The progressive metal episode was great but I couldn't help but notice the glaring omission of King's X.They deserved at least a mention
This was a great episode! Kudos for allowing Steve Hackett to show the rest of the non
Genesis world that he influenced many with his tapping technique, LONG before Eddie Van Halen.
DAY-AM...............this is a TRULY AWESOME <)

Great to see them paying respects to bands like king crimson who were rock pioneers. Maybe they can open some people's minds and ears to something outside the commercial norm that kills the music industry.
Awesome! I love the fact that they are paying some respect to bands like king crimson who were rock pioneers. Maybe they can get just a few people to at least think outside the commercial norm that kills the music industry.
At first I thought this episode would be a bunch of boring Dream Theater stuff, but then I remembered how much I do love some of the early prog rock bands - giving props to King Crimson - hell yeah! I can't wait for this one!
