New Interview with Boston-based Progressive Metallers Protean Collective!
1/9/2015 2:28:23 PM by Frank H.

Formed in 2005, Boston-based progressive metallers Protean Collective have gradually built a name for themselves, issuing a series of self-released CD's and gigging extensively. This year has seen them open local shows for respected prog names such as Cynic and Pain of Salvation, and their latest release, "The Red and the Grey" takes their sound to a new level with the aid of Sweden's reputed Fascination Street Studios (whose services have been employed by Opeth, Kreator, Devin Townsend, Soilwork and Paradise Lost, among others), where the album was mixed and mastered. Maximum Metal's Vinaya Saksena recently met up with the band- vocalist/ guitarist Graham Bacher, guitarist Stephanie Goyer, bassist Daniel Ehramjian and drummer Matt Zappa- for a discussion that took in everything from depression to dynamics (both musical and personal) to one member's unfortunate introduction to the music of Metallica.
