Greg Fox's career—both as a drummer in metal and jazz groups, and as a solo artist—has been leading to this moment. Not just to this album, but to the possibilities it affords him as an artist with unparalleled skill performing on the instrument in the back of the bandstand. Though he does have contributors on his second solo album The Gradual Progression, the sound of the album is Fox's alone.
As an instrumentalist, Greg Fox is nothing if not fearless. His drumming style in and out of his best-known projects Liturgy and Guardian Alien has always been an intriguing and, dare I say it, unique prospect. A mixture of black metal fury and jazz fusion pyrotechnics for sure, but there.
