Pearltrees. Veto. Technical & Progressive Thrash Metal thread - Page 3. Here's another album I think needs to be looked into; Leviathen "Onward Through The Fog" (1993).
NOT the Colorado Progressive Metal band that was signed to Century Media. This band is more in line with 'prog-thrash' genre, with a little Power Metal as well. I think they're very good and the production's not too bad either, for '93.

Canada has produced but a scant few (that I know of) bands in the USPM tradition, but they are of the utmost highest caliber. More on those bands later but right now let me tell you some T.A.L.E.S. of Zions Abyss. They are one of these bands, they hail from the mighty city of Edmonton and play a classy style of power metal with a touch of prog.
