What makes PetroDragonic Apocalypse elite and sit atop OHMs Peak?

  • How does perhaps the most prolific band of the century keep things so fresh and layered within each release? The only answer to this we can think of is that they are just fucking genius musicians with insane chemistry

  • The Australian juggernaut, as we write this perspective today, have released 25 studio albums, 16 live albums, 7 compilation/remix/extended albums, 59 singles and 60+ music videos

  • PetroDragonic Apocalypse is perhaps the bands most consistently heavy album with a core progressive metal tilt. What distinguishes this album from the many others is the fact that the percussion arrangements hit euphoric heights. Our minds wander into homage for Danny Carey territory as each track contains jaw-dropping angles. Michael Cavanagh has a percussive technique that feels flawless all while maintaining the intensity and complexity of the elite drummers of our time

  • While the album has tremendous consistency, it is ‘Flamethrower’ that becomes the most engrossing track of this elite album. The song features some of the most comfortingly aggressive moments and should be earmarked as a test track when looking to upgrade your speakers. Do they pass sonic capture of what is 'Flamethrower'? 'Jambi' used to be our test track until now
