Pre-order for the CD, on its own, or with a shirt is available at PROSTHETIC’s official webstore. Last week, the band unveiled a sneak peak at the “Level 2” video game, inspired by the album. Check out the footage now. The band is currently on a Canadian tour and will join Atheist for dates in early March. They will also be appearing at this year’s New England Metal and Hardcore Festival.
LAST CHANCE TO REASON teamed up with producer Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me) to create a modern take on the classic progressive concept album. Drawing influence from the 70’s prog of King Crimson and Yes, composers Steve Reich and Schoenberg as well as prog-metal masters Opeth, Dream Theater and Cynic, LCTR’s “Level 2” takes the band in awe-inspiring new directions.
Set in a Tron-like virtual world, the album’s concept revolves around the relationship between man and technology, our move from physical reality to virtual spaces and what these changes mean to our lives and our art. The lyrics are expressed from the point of view of an artificial intelligence facing the violent reality of a videogame world.
