Escapethecult stream debut All You Want To

International prog outfit Escapethecult have streamed debut album All You Want To via Prog.

It’s the brainchild of Siberian bassist Peter G Shallmin, who brought in Primus and A Perfect Circle drummer Tim Alexander, Uneven Structure vocalist Matthieu Romarin and guitarist Mike Wead of King Diamond.

Shallmin aims to combine audio and visual experiences to deliver a unique progressive metal concept. He says: “It was a dynamic and exciting start, with blood, sweat and tears shed throughout the process and a long exhausted preparation for the attack.

“Every day was worth it to make it real. We were sincere in the ideas that are embodied in our debut.”

Escape The Cult are featured in the current edition of Prog, on sale now. (opens in new tab)

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
