WIN Epic Tantrum's Abandoned in the Strangers Room
For those not in the know, one of prog rock’s most promising new bands, Epic Tantrum (which is now one of my most favorite band names ever!) have just-released (January 20th, 2020) their quite brilliant debut double CD, Abandoned in the Stranger's Room.
Containing elements of prog rock, jazz, and heavy metal, Epic Tantrum’s debut double disc offering is a double dip assortment of wonderment, that's for sure.
Epic Tantrum is comprised of members Peter - guitar, vox; Paul - guitar, vox; Greg - bass, vox; and Z - drums and the origins of the band started in 2007 when Peter and Paul began recording instrumental classical guitar pieces.
They enjoyed working together and decided to write and record original material in Paul's studio, known as The Strangers Room.
It was there that the two wrote songs and tinkered with them until they were satisfied, at which point they brought in friends to round out their recording sessions.
They named this collaboration Epic Tantrum, and recorded a demo entitled ‘31st’ and ‘Mary.'
Over the next few years, with several starts and stops, they continued to write and record material - but the goal of a full band remained elusive.
In 2016 Greg joined the band as bassist and the hard work of finishing their debut album kicked into full gear.
On the first CD of this debut album, entitled Abandoned, it features studio recordings of previously unreleased material. Whereas the second CD, entitled The Stranger’s Room features live versions of songs from Abandoned as well as material that appeared on previously released demos.
