Prog rock has played an important role in our most beloved bands. Take a look at Judas Priest’s “Rocka Rolla”, and Scorpions’ first albums, only to mention a few. Bruce Dickinson, for instance, is a huge fan of Jethro Tull. Just as a reminder, Jethro Tull was nominated, and awarded, best metal band in 1987 by the Grammy! I’m not kidding, guys! Check it out! That’s the reason why we are showing you a piece of prog rock at its finest.
Evership is not only a musical project. There’s a big, and close story behind it. That’s why we feel so cozy listening to the songs. Shane and his buddies achieved something very difficult, which is blending fine musical technique with heart and soul. Strongly influenced by 1970s prog rock bands, Evership reminds us of that time without sounding like a mere and obvious copy. “A Slow Descent Into Reality” shows us much of that. I could sense so disparate bands like Yes, Kansas, and Queen. To be more specific Yes for the keyboards, Kansas for the melodic parts, and Queen for the vocals. Jeff Beck was there too with the guitars. That is what makes Evership so pleasant. The warmth of the 1970’s music mixed with 21st reality.
The self-tittled album is composed of six tracks. Each one tells a different story with different emotions. They are the product of a craftsman who worked them slowly piece by piece, paying attention to each detail, to each way it should sound, caring for each part until he’s satisfied with the final product. That’s why it took so long to be done, such a rare thing to be found in our fast and careless days. “Evermore” shows us all that care to each detail.
So, guys, if you’re looking for something out of the box, but with high quality, Evership is the answer to your questions.
