Cloudscape

Cloudscape (known as “Doctor Weird” until 2001) is a progressive metal band from Helsingborg, Sweden. Played at ProgPower Europe in 2005 and 2007, Sweden Rock Festival in 2006, Prog Metal Fest in Oslo and Bloodstock Open Air in 2008. So far they have released 4 full length albums.
Cloudscape arose from a locally known band called “Doctor Weird” after their appearance at the Sweden Rock Festival in 2000. During 2003, several demo reviews were published in different magazines and webzines, giving them increasing recognition in the underground metal scene. The debut 12-track self-titled album was  released in late 2004 (Asia) and early 2005 (Europe). After releasing their second album they played various shows in the United States. The song “Will We Remain” features guest vocals from Anette Olzon (then vocalist of “Alyson Avenue”).

Creation’s End

Creation’s End is the vision of New York City’s Rudolph Albert (guitar – ex-Zandelle) and Dario Rodriguez (drums).

Rudy  met John Macaluso (drummer of James LaBrie Band, Fool’s Game, ex-Ark, ex-TNT, ex-Yngwie Malsteen) and hired him as producer for their first studio album. They were joined by Mike Dimeo, (ex-Masterplan, ex-Riot), Marco Sfogli (James LaBrie Band), and Joe Black (Chris Caffery, ex-Zandelle).

In Summer of 2010 the band decided to have world known engineer Neil Kernon (Queensryche, Yes, Nile, Cannibal Corpse etc) mix the album, that was released in 2010:  melodic, touches of prog, a strong sense of groove, and brutally heavy and dark. A US tour, including a date at ProgPower USA, took place in August and September of 2011.

In May 2012 the band announced they had started work on the next album.
