Teabag  


Teabag is one of several post-Psychotic Waltz bands, here featuring drummer Norm Leggio and guitarist Steve Cox, who played with PW during the last days of that band's tenure. An early demo CD of Teabag showed the band opting for a stripped-down modern metal approach, but by the time of their debut self-financed CD in 2001 they had returned to the progressive metal field, though they don't particularly sound like Psychotic Waltz at all, as they are neither as chaotic as early PW nor as spacey as their later period. Instead, they retain a fair bit of the aggression of their demo (check out closer "Projections" for an example of this), coupled with the expected excellent technical drumming of Leggio and and a bit of progressive tendencies in the songwriting department. Vocalist Ron Lerma has a unique voice, singing in a melodic style that sometimes works quite well though at other times he sounds a bit strained. This is a pretty original release, as Teabag really doesn't sound like anyone else, as their style of progressive metal with a distinct aggressive slant makes for an intriguing listen.
