Alchemy X  


Alchemy X is a progressive metal band in the tradition of Dream Theater and Fates Warning, with the latter band probably the closer reference point. Their debut album, 1999's A Delicate Balance, hits all the right prog metal notes, with a familiar style yet with a degree of originality as well. They are slightly heavier than some of their contemporaries, due in part to featuring two guitarists rather than the more common one guitarist/one keyboardist setup. The album suffers slightly in the production department, as it lacks the pristine feel often afforded such bands, though this is a minor criticism at best. The band recruited noted vocalist Bob Mitchell (formerly, and once again, of Attacker, among others) for their second album, 11:59:59. Mitchell has amicably parted ways with the band, who are now seeking a new vocalist for their next album.
