Earthside Is Cinematic Rock

The band Earthside describes their debut album A Dream In Static (not yet released) as "a story of purposeful sacrifice and existential yearning told across sweeping instrumental movements fashioning an ever-changing sound." To help promote the album, drummer Ben Shanbrom recorded this exclusive playthrough video of the track "The Closest I've Come". As you find out he can shred and is ridiculously accurate. The first time he hit those mini Tama timbales in the intro was magical. You detail oriented types should look out for that odd hi-hat/china crossover action he does right before that short pause near the end. Do we even need to discuss the optimal climax Ben executes like a machine? Fans of progressive metal who like listening to music that sounds like it shouldn't have come from planet earth will like Earthside.
