QC Songwriter: Kronos Resistor
I heard of Kronos Resistor because of Billy Gardner. He played in a great band called Katalina. Having watched them a hundred times in the back of Lumpy's, I knew he was a great guitar player. Then I heard he was doing some Progressive/Math Metal style band and was super intrigued. Luckily, this stuff doesn't disappoint.
I'm usually not into "progressive" music. A lot of it seems to wander places for no real reason other than to show off chops.
"Check out this run I can do!" "Oh, yeah..well, check out this fill" "Blah blah blah"
But Kronos Resistor is not your normal metal band nor progressive blowhards. Maybe it's the "Math" influence they throw in that ties it all together. It gives it depth and meaning. The licks come with purpose...fury too...but most importantly purpose.
