Threshold - Wounded Land
In 1993 the Britons of THRESHOLD released their debut and already then it had been heralded as milestone of Progressive Metal. Crowned by a fantastic artwork it contained quite demanding, very intelligently arranged pieces, which, contrary to many other Prog Metal-bands, always remained accessible, the song clearly stood in the foreground, there was no need for superfluous solo-show-offs.

Songs like "Consume To Live", "Mother Earth" or "Siege Of Baghdad" clearly show the experience that the Gentlemen Groom, West und Co. had gathered before, no frills, only effective high-class song-material, which feature the keyboards in a important role, but still the guitars always are in the foreground. Additionally Damian Wilson excels on the microphone...

Without doubt one of the most influential albums of the Progressive Metal-scene, for genre-fans a must!
