welcome to my collection of prog and power metal bands!
My name is Heidi, I am 42 years old and I discovered progressive metal for me only five years ago. It all started with Symphony X … or rather, it started with a guy walking into my studio …
I am a sound engeneer, own a recording and rehearsal studio in Austria, Vienna – you can look at it here: Room 66
and I also do some light band promotion on the side. One day this guy walked into my studio looking for a collaboration on his album. He was about my age, dressed in a flawless business suit, talked BBC English, and then went on to play me his songs. Pure progressive metal. It just blew me away.
I’d never heard anything like this before. Or rather, I had heard Dream Theater, but it had never impressed me. Now this guy started talking about his influences and the way he wanted his album to sound, and when he went away I started digging out the bands he had mentioned.
Symphony X, Kamelot, Royal Hunt … and I was like, wow. This is what I been looking for all my life. Or so it seemed. I went on and on always keen on discovering new bands, more music, more and ever more. Insatiable … 🙂
I created this page to share my findings, introduce new bands, give out some news, share music, resources and more. It’s all about the music really.
I not only am a recording engeneer but also an active musician, I play the bass, at the moment I jam around with some friends, no serious band. I also lay down bass tracks on some recordings from time to time.
What else? I love my cats, like my summers hot, like to go swimming and cycling.
I hope you enjoy your stay here, find some great stuff,
and I’d just love to hear your comments, suggestions, feedback and stories!
