Formed in 1993, Detroit's Tiles has built a solid
reputation as a premier prog band.
Musically, there is the occasional nod to mid-period
(one of several connections to Geddy's gang --
Rush producer Terry Brown and cover artist Hugh Syme
both perform similar roles here),
maybe a bit of
in the vocal department, along with Tiles' own unique
stamp of originality.
As with any good prog band, the musicianship is high
but the players manage to show their chops without
being overly indulgent or too flashy.
Not a true progressive metal band, but perhaps more of
a prog rock/metal band instead, Tiles is one of the more
mature, professional bands making the rounds these days.
