Big choruses and hard-driving guitar riffs combine to create something truly special on the new album from alternative metal/rock band, Four Trips Ahead. Their new album, …And The Fire Within, is a truly dynamic style of music that is best described (not easily, though) as the meeting point of alt-metal, 70’s hard rock, and progressive rock. You could liken this album to a more streamlined version of mid to late period Porcupine Tree, and given that band’s prodigious discography, that’s a massive compliment. The band described themselves in a recent interview as “Melodic loud hard rock with harmonies and a heavy backbeat that’s not afraid to incorporate and explore elements of metal, prog and pop”.
