TUNGSTEN - "The Reservoir"
Imagine combining the psychadelica of 70's Pink Floyd with the blistering guitar harmonies of 80's Iron Maiden. Update those classic sounds with the modern progressiveness of Opeth and Mastodon, top the blend with the intense vocals of one of Philadelphia's most talented front-women, and you get Tungsten. Hailing from Philadelphia, Tungsten has spent the last two years performing its own brand of progressive metal to captivated audiences in Philadelphia and New York City. Having honed their sound through explosive live performances, Tungsten took to the studio in Summer of 2013 to record their material. The result is The Reservoir, the band's debut LP, an album that captures the band's signature sound: progressive metal that is dark, innovative, and creative, but still bursting at the seams with classic metal attitude that makes you want to pump your fist in the air. Drawing on influences both timeless (Iron Maiden, Rush, Pink Floyd) and modern (Opeth, Mastodon), The Reservoir features inventive riffs, soaring guitar harmonies, bombastic drumming, and the commanding vocals of Philly's most intense frontwoman.
