    ProgRock's album of the month
    First let me say those of you who passed on Evolve IV missed a good album at a good price last month. I liked the album a lot.

    Here's March's offering: http://www.progrockrecords.com/shop/view.php?id=143

    A Chinese Firedrill "circles" is a solo project from veteran
    bassist/producer Joey Vera. Joey has been in the music business since
    1981 having been involved in many groups including Armored Saint,
    Fates Warning (both of which he is still a current member), Anthrax,
    OSI, Tribe After Tribe, Chroma Key, Seven Witches and Engine to name a few.

    A Chinese Firedrill "circles" was written, recorded and performed by
    Joey from May 2005 to June 2006. Truly a solo project, Joey performs
    all of the instruments and vocals with the exception of the drum
    tracks which were performed by a local friend. The music on "circles"
    was conceived out of a desire to pull influences from the past and
    subject the writing process to an experiment in arrangements and
    instrumentation. To put the necessary label on the type of music on
    this record, Joey is calling it Prog/Art Rock. The record draws from
    his early influences such as Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, Rush, and
    from more recent influences such as Tool, Porcupine Tree, Kings X and OSI.

    Specially priced during the month of March at just $5 at

    The samples sound pretty good to me but I wish there were more.
