It appears as though no matter what the "flavor of the month" may be on radio or MTV, there will always be a die-hard cult fan base for progressive metal. Popularized by the likes of Dream Theater, the style incorporates the tricky bits of such groups as Yes along with the metallic muscle of Iron Maiden. The top Finnish export is Stratovarius. 2005 saw the release of a self-titled studio album, which shows that the group is still following their original musical path. While the album will undoubtedly please those already converted, to others outside the group's fanatical circle, you can't help but smirk a bit at such Spinal Tap-worthy song titles as "Maniac Dance," "Fight!!!," and "The Land of Ice and Snow," or singer Timo Kotipelto's equal parts Bruce Dickinson and Sebastian Bach vocals. That said, Stratovarius is one of the few prog metal acts that actually puts songwriting ahead of mere shredding and noodling, as evidenced by quite a few tracks on Stratovarius -- including "Just Carry On." ~ Greg Prato

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit, even forty-five years after its release.

Alice Cooper doesn’t run from danger

More than anything, Alice Cooper’s life is an extraordinary case of split personality. Much like in “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde”, singer Vincent Furnier abandoned himself to the dominance of the showman Alice Cooper. But by his own admission, despite always speaking of Alice in the third person in interviews, he is still a simple, normal man in private, far from the stage where he is all about excess and provocation. Throughout his fifty-four-year career, he’s also demonstrated a touch of schizophrenia that can be found in his numerous style changes. While he is credited for inventing shock rock, he did try his hand at – almost – everything, with more or less success, from pop to early hard rock, as well as heavy metal, new wave, industrial…
