New Scale the Summit Album!

Scale the Summit are in the studio working and a new album, The Collective.  Their last album, Carving Desert Canyons, is a wonder barrage of heavy guitar riffs, tasty shred licks, and clean tapped passages.  You can immediately tell the Dream Theater influence; I also detect Don Caballero influence in their tapping segues.
Though sometimes corny and obviously really major/mixolydian sounding at times, these guys are really talented and I have not been disappointed. When dealing with instrumental music, there is a fine line to walk between being listen-able and interesting.  I think Scale the Summit mixes a pretty good blend.
The new album ships march 1.
