"Entities" (Self-produced; 2013)
Reviewed by Jeff Rogers
Pomegranate Tiger are instrumental, experimental,
progressive metal and I'll wager that you haven't heard music this great in a
long time. From the first second to the last, you'll hear incredible guitar
work, drums that will pound away but never damage and piano that would make
Jordan Rudess ask about getting his hands on the notes (he'd ask for a friend of
course). These guys play some great music. It's progressive, it's experimental
and it's all instrumental -- no vocals, no kidding.
Since there aren't any vocals, the music does all the talking. These four awesome musicians will blow you away with their progressive prowess. I cued this disc up and didn't move for the full hour and six minutes that it played. Each song has superb riffs and solos that, well ... I can't really say anything to do it justice. You need to hear it for yourself. These guys did a cover version of Frank Zappa's "The Black Page," a notoriously hard piece of music to write and much less cover. Fans of Zappa would be impressed.
Pomegranate Tiger: Martin Andres - Lead Guitar; Matt Shaheen - Guitar; Keith Wilkinson - Bass; Phil Gatti - Drums.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
