This week, we’re talking with local musicians Adam Tremblett and Jacob McSheffrey. Together, with drummer Bryant McNamara, they form the instrumental prog-metal trio The Dead Centuries. Their album release party for debut album Race Against Time on January 26 at Live! On Elgin has sold out.
“It’s the musicality of it,” says Tremblett when asked what draws him to the prog sound. “It’s not really straight ahead. There’s always something fresh and new to be heard in the kind of music we like to listen to. I like the creativity of that, applying techniques in new and innovative ways.”
We ask them how the band got started, their thoughts on the prog-metal genre, and whether or not they have a deep-rooted fear of mutants.
