Instrumental progressive metal
has always been a fringe market, with a select few
bands plying their trade in the shadows of the masses.
One of the best 2013 entries in this genre is the
debut album from Ontario's Pomegranate Tiger.
The band strikes a perfect balance between flashy technicality, solid riffs,
and real headbanging crunch, the latter of which is often lacking
in tech bands like this.
Frequent comparisons are made to two other impressive instru-prog bands,
