Scale The Summit

I used the search bar and couldn't find a thread so here it is, the Scale The Summit thread.

I saw them at Prog Nation, and found them really cool, so I checked out Monument and Carving Desert Canyons, and fell in love.

What do you guys think ?

Can you handle Chris' Letchford's insane 8 string guitar skills ?

awesome, CDC is a really good album to listen to on those lazy mornings when you don't want to wake up.

If only they'd perform in Holland

"wipe the floor" i think is being overdramatic, but Animals as Leaders are a great find, thanks for posting.

I disagree. STS is far more melodic and song oriented, despite the immense technicality. AaL is sometimes too much too fast.


This band is amazing.

I saw them on Prog Nation as well in Minnesota and they were amazing. I didn't have the cash to get their CD at the show because I bought a Dream Theater and a Zappa shirt, but the next day I was at my local record shop the second it opened to buy both of their CD's.

I got to meet them too, they're pretty cool guys.

I saw them with Protest the Hero and Misery Signals (i know, weird line up) and thought they were great. Also, they're from Houston so that's a nice plus for me

I just found out that this band is from the same suburb that I live in. The guy at our local GameStop said they literally lived "three streets away" and that one of his friends used to play for them.

They're a fantastic band, I just hope they can achieve the recognition they deserve without a singer.

I love these guys. I bought their tab book, and got a bunch of stickers, a bottle opener, and a handwritten message from the band! Pretty awesome.

A lot of people say that they should get a singer, but I completely disagree. I think it would kind of ruin them, seeing as how the guitar does all the singing

Yeah I'm listening to them now and I don't know how a singer would fit into it without changing the whole style.

ok I haven't heard this band before. I'd like to check 'em out, but to save myself the wasted bandwidth - I think Dream Theater currently is a cancerous lesion on the face of music, and I think the Umphrey's McGee are currently the real successors to "progressive rock" music. I still love Porcupine Tree's older albums to death.

And I think Rusty Cooley is the reason why there is still genocide in this world.

Should be I listening to this band? Now that I've somewhat contextualized a part of my musical taste.
