More information: AFFECTOR are the highly skilled, new international band consisting of German guitar-player Daniel Fries, Dutch drummer Collin Leijenaar (NEAL MORSE, DILEMMA) as well bass player Mike LePond (SYMPHONY X) and vocalist Ted Leonard (SPOCK'S BEARD, ENCHANT, THOUGHT CHAMBER), both from the United States.
"Harmagedon" features heavy riffs and lightning fast solos, but also softer and more fragile moments with soulful vocal harmonies, coming across like an open marriage between progressive rock/metal and orchestral minimalism. For fans of Dream Theater, A.C.T., Symphony X, Darkwater, Queen or Rush.
