Song of the Day

June 20, 2014
Destiny Calls
Seventh Wonder
Mercy Falls (2008)

I like this song because of its quintessential prog-metally-ness.  Prog rock can encapsulate a huge breadth of styles and sounds, but prog metal to me usually implies technically proficient guitar riffs with changing, unusual rhythms, melodic vocals, and varying moods, which this song has in spades.  Without these things, the genre comes incredibly close to simply sounding like power metal or plain old symphonic metal, which a lot of Seventh Wonder songs can.  But it's songs like these that solidify them as a prog metal band to the fullest of that title.
