Annual Donation Drive Postponed
With everything going on in the world right now, people have more important
concerns and priorities to deal with, so I am postponing the annual Heavy Harmonies
Donation Drive until later in 2020. Stay safe everyone! -Dan

|The best release yet from the prog metal masters. "Sheltering Sky" and "Keep My Head" are the standout songs on this excellent CD. Highly recommended!!

|Yep, yep, yep!! I decided to add them here just because they are so fucking good. People who know me know that as a general rule I despise prog; too self-indulgent and self-absorbed... ya just can't sing to the shit. Threshold, on the other hand, I can listen to for hours and never get tired of them. They've become more melodic over time; their choruses are downright AOR-ish at times. This album is the best of the bunch. The chorus on "Ravages of Time" is just a monster. I've got the "Live in Paris" and "Extinct Instinct" en route, so I'll ad them when I get them. There's supposedly going to be a fanclub-only acoustic album coming out shortly... *POUNCE*

|Brilliant album, definately their strongest so far, although Clone and Critical Mass are very good aswell. Not one weak track on this cd Get the Ltd Edition version as there is an awesome acoustic version of Life Flow ( worth it for the cd alone). Definately one of The highlights of 2001.

|Finally decided to listen to this DISC - and I can tell you absolutely BRILLIANT. I am so hyped to listen to all their other stuff. McDermott's voice sounds familiar but I can't think of who I would compare to - it doesn't ring a bell. Anyways - just awesome and highly recommeded.

|Hypothetical is a prime example of the way progressive metal should be played: heavy guitar riffs (Groom and Midson rule!), fancy melodies, many solos from the guitars and Richard West on the keyboards, amazing and surprising tempo changes, without losing that originality they always had.

|These guys make you forget all about that other band Dream something. See what I mean

|Not 100% for sure but I believe Andrew Mcdermott was the lead singer for Sargent Fury "STILL WANT MORE",and "LITTLE FISH" both awesome releases.If you look at those releases on here,it says the lead vocals is MAC which I guess would make sense.If he isnt him,then he is a clone,(no pun intended on another Threshold release.).

|Knuckles - spot on about Mac and Sargent Fury - they are indeed the same bloke -a mighty fine vocalist he is aswell..

|I'm starting to ask questions about this band. I heard rumours they were good, but now I see the vocalist from a huge favourite band of mine is at the helm here. I hate prog rock with a passion, but do the fans of this band think a melodic hard rocker who loves Sargant Fury, especially the KILLER debut would like this one?

|Hey Geoff-Like you I don't have much time for prog but Threshold are uniformly excellent from Clone onwards. Mac has made the difference IMO. The Dble Live CD is simply killer-Take a chance I did and have never regretted it.

|Geoff,take it from me,I cant believe you like Sargent Fury's first release any more than me.My first release I heard from these guys was Psychedelicatessen.I was flat out blown away.To this day,I personally think it is their best release however having said that,all of thier releases are like victoria secret models,sure you have your favorite,but that sure dont make the others ugly.

|Andrew McDermott,ex-Sargant Fury,is such a talent and great singer who always can come up with great singing melodies.This just makes something ordinary to higher stages.Visually he is totally a different person but still has a great voice.

|For me this is nothing but a prog metal masterclass. Just listen to the middle 3 tracks - 'Sheltering Sky', 'Oceanbound' and 'Long Way Home'...as Dan mentions above, choruses bordering on AOR! Just fantastic soaring melodies coupled with huge (almost Metallica style) riffs. Elsewhere, Ravages of Time is relentless in pace...Narcissus again presents a wonderful chorus. Even if you are not into prog you should check this album - you might be surprised! Easily 9.5/10. Essential.

|Dan said it perfect earlier, i couldn't agree more with him! Most stuff i listen from other progressive metal bands are just or too damn complex or with no refrains.Threshold is THE best mix between melody and complexity with melodies varying from dark mood to mid-happy and back, Karl Groom's guitar is just masterpiece, with often heavy riffs and then melodic acoustic and solos, not to mention one of the BEST vocal ever Mr.Mac who's vocal seem to make you dreamy.This album is just GREAT! 9.99/10
