Threshold are England’s foremost Progressive Metal band. Their eighth studio album Dead Reckoning was hailed as a masterpiece by Uk rock magazine Fireworks, the album was written and produced by Karl Groom and Richard West, who have been with the band since Thresholds debut release Wounded Land. What I like about Threshold’s approach is that instead of going the show-off wanky approach that a lot of so-called progressive bands take, they work and route of careful arrangement of all facets of the music, and in the end crafts an album of wonderfully catchy-yet deceptively complex, deep songs. The tunes are in possession of all the prog elements in terms of good musicianship, convoluted song structures and the band excel at making things tasteful. Sort of the way Savatage made their piano based and ballad stuff tasteful – not that I’m comparing the bands in any other way. Dead Reckoning is what I’d consider objectively good art made with intelligence.
