Gracepoint  


Minnesota's Gracepoint produced a solid debut album in 2000 entitled Science Of Discontent. Rooted strongly in the power/progressive metal field, with complex riffs that at times border on technical metal (without being too busy), the band avoids being overly melodic (a fate that plagues many so-called progressive bands), both in terms of the dark tone of the songs and and the gruff but clear mid-range vocals of Matt Tennessen, who often is quite reminiscient of John Bush from Armored Saint and Anthrax. Factor in a fine independent production (by the band themselves) and the result is a quality metal album. Very promising, and very recommended. Though it's been several years since the album's release, the band is still alive, and plan to record in the summer of 2007.
