UNIFIED PAST: “Spots” Released Today
The brand new studio album from the US progressive rockers Unified Past is officially out, released via Melodic Revolution Records.
“Spots” is the sixth release by Unified Past and their second release for Melodic Revolution Records. Guitarist / vocalist Stephen Speelman and drummer Victor Tassone are augmented on this recording by bassist Dave Mickelson. Mickelson is a seasoned professional and together with Tassone they lay a solid hard rocking foundation to support the progressive lines of the guitar and keyboards. The band is joined by several guest keyboardists as well. With the addition of Mickelson, Unified Past was able to record the foundation of the songs together live in the studio.
Featuring artwork by internationally acclaimed artist Ed Unitsky, “Spots” is the most ambitious release in the Unified Past catalogue. It is a musical concept whose aim is to take the listener on a journey to various musical spots across the progressive rock landscape. Starting with the opening track, “Blank”, Unified Past delivers a powerful statement and quickly catches the listeners attention. From there, the band takes you on the journey – exploring various styles of progressive rock including progressive metal, fusion, and classic 70’s influenced prog, highlighted by the Pink Floyd meets Genesis influenced closer, “The Final”.
“Spots” is a deep and structured release and is best absorbed when listened to in its entirety, yet any song can stand on it’s own, giving the listener the ability to pick their own favorite spots along this aural adventure.
