RIDE THE SKY
NEW PROTECTION
NUCLEAR BLAST

Swedish journeyman troupe Ride the Sky fuse prog metal pomp, album oriented rock hooks, and Swedish metal guitar heroics on their debut 12-track endeavor. With an ear for melody, this quintet, who boast an impressive amount of musical experience, create a plethora of uplifting keyboard-led power metal tunes like the Dream Theater-esque "Silent War" and "A Crack in the Wall" and while showcasing a slew of metallic theatrics on songs such as the Styx meets Gamma Ray ready for Broadway "A Smile From Heaven's Eye". If you are a sucker for contrasting dynamic shifts under a double bass beat and a power metal backdrop, then NEW PROTECTION will suit your big rock textured needs just right.
