TRANSATLANTIC REUNION

Post by yeshead 777 » Thu Apr 16, 2009 6:29 am

Great news! The rumours are true! the PROG supergroup are reuniting and are currently working on a new disc to be released by the end of the year. Now lets hope for a US tour! Detials on the PE and mike portnoy's sites.

First heard on Portnoy's forum earlier.

I only own their first album, but I loved it and I'm very excited for this.

Their second "Bridge across forever" is even better and includes their best epic "Stranger in your soul."

If you love Transatlantic so much why don't you marry them?? :P :twisted:

Just kidding. They're gooderns. I overall tend to like them more than any of the members bands on their own...

Tommorrow should be the day. But actually I think I'd rather marry Karmakanic right now, cause they are my current favs, and GH is spoken for!

how good is 'who's the boss'!
was just listening to it yesterday in fact, its definitely very good - it was worth waiting two years for. i like the tracks 'send a message' & 'two blocks from the edge'.

It's great!!Believe it or not i was underwhelmed at first, but its grown on me alot. I don't like the vocalist's voice on this one as much-sounds too much like Roine Stolt-which makes em sound too Flower Kingy.

goran edman sang on the previous album though ... or are you referring to the production/mixing of his vocals on this album? i really loved 'wheel of life' when it came out. such a great piece of work.

No, its really more the sound of his voice. Its just not as distinct or something as it is on wheel of life-which is still my fav of theirs.I still love his voice, and this whole band, "Wheel of Life" is an almost perfect prog disc IMHO.Jonas and Zoltan are monsters and heroes.

definitely. they are so tight as the rhythm section, fabulous stuff to listen to ... and of the clips i've seen on youtube, they have heaps of fun playing the stuff live too!

I'd love to see them live, or at least the rhythm section. Their stuff recently though is a whole lot fresher and more exciting than recent Flower Kings.

Well, if you live in NY, CT or VT you can probably make a legal case for marrying a whole band!
