Flying colors: the virtue of melody


I have always admired Mike Portnoy. Not only he is one of the greatest drummers of his generation, but also he is overwhelmingly restless. He has not stopped working on numerous projects, even after his painful departure from the band he founded and gave him notoriety in the progressive metal scene: Dream Theater. It’s even absurd trying to list all of the projects he is currently involved with. However, if I had to pinpoint the most relevant, that would definitely be Flying Colors, a band that includes guitar legend Steve Morse -among other luminaries- and what I consider the true revelation: vocalist Casey McPherson. What McPherson brings to the table is some sort of freshness, I would even say naïveté, which is what makes Flying Colors (2012) such a thrilling record. You will find plenty of instrumental proficiency, that’s a given –but you will also encounter various melodic treats.

This is the EPK for the album
