Terminal Degree is the brainchild of drummer/composer Mike Barnett. The band’s second album, BREED, marks a continuation of the unique conception of progressive metal/jazz/classical fusion that is Terminal Degree.
Terminal Degree shatters the metal archetype and the compositions display a musical depth that is rare by any rock/metal standard. The band is comprised of musicians with highly diverse backgrounds and consummate musical skill, and the pristine production fully captures the magnitude of each performance. Consisting of purely instrumental music, BREED is faithful to the listener who is committed to the art of listening and who believes that music is more than just sonic wallpaper.
Timeless, intelligent and frighteningly original, this is the stuff that cult classics are made of.
