News from Listenable Records

Listenable Records is proud to introduce prog metal mongers THE OMEGA  EXPERIMENT. Very few young bands have shown so much enthusiasm and passion for the music they enjoy listening and playing with so much professionalism and we fully support that.

Michigan's THE OMEGA EXPERIMENT, founded by duo Dan Wieten and Ryan Aldridge, describes their sound as '"heavy guitars, euphoric synths and rich layered vocals come together to create a wall of progressive rock lushness.'"

Like their  fellow modern prog artists,  THE OMEGA EXPERIMENT create a massive sound with home equipment and have no fear of experimentation and rule breaking.

The guitars are big and technical and layered with keyboard sounds reminiscent of Dream Theater and Queensryche. The vocals range from powerful lead lines, big harmonies and demonic screams in the vein of Devin Townsend and Mike Patton.

The band's inspiration comes from guitarist/vocalist Dan addressing the last 10 years of his life, focusing on his excess and drug abuse which took him to a dark place and his determination to move onto a brighter future.

THE OMEGA EXPERIMENT has been lucky enough to receive public praise from Devin Townsend on multiple occasions, most notably on his Twitter account the night they unleashed their Karma EP to the masses for free on Bandcamp. Townsend was quoted as saying, "Actually listening now...great great work man! Seriously great stuff Dan, I fully back it and appreciate the effort you've invested I wish all luck!" The EP later went on to receive over 2000 downloads.

The band released their self-titled debut album was mastered by Acle Kahney (TESSERACT) and made available digitally via bandcamp, itunes  to much critical acclaim.

THE OMEGA EXPERIMENT  will see the re-release of their self-titled debut album in late February in Europe and March in the U.S. on Listenable .

The band is currently at work writing their next album and look forward to getting back out and touring, with a strong hope to be able to reach their fans in other countries.

CENTURIAN Debut New Song - "Judas Among Twelve"

Dutch death metal mongers CENTURIAN have debuted a new track from their forthcoming third album, Contra Rationem.

The song, entitled "Judas Among Twelve," has been posted as a promo video view here :

This is CENTURIAN's first offering of new material in 11 years. Contra Rationem is slated for a 2013 release via Listenable Records.

Main songwriter Rob Oorthuis commented on his vision about the authenticity, core and strength of the new album :

"Contra Rationem is an adversive record in the broadest sense of the word. It lacks all the ethics of contemporary productions. Leaving only the dynamic range of decay and rats exploring your skeleton. Through the rattle of bones...One might even hear flesh on instruments. We keep our death metal under-produced. All songs were nailed with conviction, without hesitation, in one take. Guided only by tongues of fire descending upon our heads. Uncorrected. As real as we are not."

Thou Shalt Bleed for the Lord thy God

Feast of the Cross
Judas Among Twelve
The Will of the Torch
