I picked up Tears to Dust a week ago. It pales in comparison to the run of Anhedonia, Esoteric Symbolism, and Her Halo. Almost like a different band. Not sure who the hell sings on Tears to Dust either. It's not their "classic" singer who did vocals on Anhedonia and Esoteric (who is also back and doing vocals on the next one) or the guy on Her Halo.

My suggestion would be just get Anhedonia, Esoteric and Her Halo, and that's really all you need. Three really great records. Looking forward to the next one.

Yeah, I wasn't particularly impressed by Tears to Dust or Doxology myself. Once the band essentially "rebooted" itself with Anhedonia though, they've been on one hell of a run between that album, Esoteric Symbolism and Her Halo. Heck, the multitude of small samples the band's been posting on Facebook for the next album all sound fantastic too!

Woohoo, managed to get a copy of this today. Can't wait to listen.

Have fun, man! :tup

Discovered this fantastic band with Anhedonia and was instantly blown away. Glad they got the original singer back and a new release is in the making! (prefer Anhedonia over Esoteric Symbolism though, just a bit more relatable to me. Her Halo.....not exactly my thing.  :metal

Yeah, it's exciting that Brett's back. Hopefully we'll get a taste of the new album soon. :metal

For fans of Her Halo, Nathan also recently joined another band called Trigger! :metal

AUSTRALIAN PROG ROCK BAND TERAMAZE ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM AND RELEASE VIDEO
 
New album: ‘Are We Soldiers’
Released: 21 June 2019
Music Theories Recordings / Mascot Label Group
 
Watch The Video For First New Track “Weight of Humanity”

April 24, 2019 – Today prog rock band, Teramaze announced that their new album Are We Soldiers will be released on 21 June 2019 via Mascot Label Group. To celebrate the announcement the Australian band also released a new video for their song “Weight Of Humanity” which was directed by Wayne Joyner. The track is the first music released from their upcoming album, which you can preorder

http://smarturl.it/Teramaze?utm_source=Benelux+%2B+ROW+Press&utm_campaign=40ec1bbd29-TERAMAZE-ARE-WE-SOLDIERS-20190424&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_91fb212bf1-40ec1bbd29-297380137&mc_cid=40ec1bbd29&mc_eid=8a18f55944

Teramaze founder, guitarist and producer Dean Wells said of the video “Weight of Humanity" was one of the first songs we wrote for this album and I really believe it captures the true essence of what Teramaze is artistically and lyrically.
The song touches on the pressures of living in our times and what we choose to believe and accept what is true or lies.
It’s one of my favorite songs from the album and Wayne did an amazing job of creating something visually stimulating that blends well with the theme of the song”
 
“Australian prog has been around for a while mate,” said Wells on the recent explosion of progressive-minded rock bands from Australia, of which Melbourne’s Teramaze are surely at the forefront. “It was kick started with bands like Cog, Karnivool, and now there’s stuff like Voyager and Caligula’s Horse and Plini and things like that.”
 
“Funnily enough I don’t really feel that we’re really a part of that,” he continues. The thing with Teramaze is we’re a progressive band but we’re closer to progressive metal and not progressive rock. But sometimes it’s not progressive rock at all, it’s more like metal with big pop choruses. I mean I like progressive metal because it gives me the chance to write anything under the banner of Teramaze. But sometimes I like writing pop songs. And it does leak into Teramaze, it always has. A song like ‘Her Halo’ itself for example.”
 
‘Her Halo’, Teramaze’s 2015 album, and their first for Mascot Records, saw the band take a big step up from previous albums ‘Anhedonia’ (2012) and ‘Esoteric Symbolism’ (2014), with the UK’s Prog Magazine calling the album “Exceptional” and stating it was “one of the finest prog metal releases of recent years.” Four years later and Wells and Teramaze are back with a new album, ‘Are We Soldiers’, another step up for the Australian band. It’s still Teramaze – all huge choruses, crashing guitar chords, intricate time changes and swooping melodies – but it’s a bigger, brighter and even better Teramaze.
 
There’s change beyond the music for Teramaze with ‘Are We Soldiers’, with original vocalist Brett Rerekura returning to the fold, replacing Nathan Peachey, who’d sung on ‘Her Halo’.
 
With ‘Are We Soldiers’, Dean Wells and Teramaze have delivered another excellent piece of modern progressive metal. One that will inevitably build upon the progress achieved by ‘Her Halo’. With plans afoot for European and UK live dates for later in the year, Teramaze are a band that are going to be occupying a lot of your time in 2019 and beyond.
 
“’Are We Soldiers’ is a bit more weighty, and it’s a long album,” smiles a proud Wells. “But I make no apologies for that. I enjoy it, and I just hope other people do too.”

Missing the last singer, but at least they went back and got the guy from the albums prior.  I love this band.

Ditto..........decent song but prefer the vocals on Her Halo.  I don't like lyric videos unless the lyrics are really top notch and I don't think they are here.  I really liked the mid section and from there I thought the song improved.

Still very much looking forward to the album and good to see Chris in the band - lives around the corner from me - great player and great guy   :)

I didn't think that song was all that special.  Probably a grower though.  Sounds kind of like newer Pyramaze to me a bit.  Will check out.
