UNIFIED PAST-Shifting The Equilibrium

up1I like Progressive Rock. I like Yes. I like King Crimson, Flash & Gentle Giant. There is now a new band on the list. Unified Past, with their album Shifting The Equilibrium, is Progressive Rock the way I remember it.

The vocals are ethereal, delivering melody lines and lyrics that are seductively sublime. Pay particular attention to “Today Is The Day“. The bass lines come at you from places I have never been, just check out “Peace Remains In up3This World“, and the drumming is devastatingly powerful. The guitar work is brilliant, with riffs that surprise and excite, and the synthesizer rocks, particularly on “Smile“. The album is wonderfully melodic. There are exceptional changes, and some way cool harmonics on “Deviation From A Theme“.  Favorite track: “Etched In Stone“, with its sweet, acoustic guitar, and a wonderfully orchestrated medieval theme.

up2Shifting The Equilibrium has an amazing amount of stuff going on. Each listen allows you to hear more and more. Unified Past has the ability to construct tracks that come full circle, while taking you down several roads between beginning and end. And the CD comes with a lyric booklet!! This is some of the best Progressive Rock I have heard in a long while. Check it out for yourself here. Sit back, put on your headphones, crank up the volume, and prepare to be amazed! The only thing missing is the dry ice.
