UK progressive metal quintet THRESHOLD released their colossal double concept album »Legends Of The Shires« last week via Nuclear Blast. The 11th studio album by the band features old / new vocalist Glynn Morgan, who lent his vocals to the band's 1994 release, »Psychedelicatessen«. In contrast to the more straight-ahead heaviness and traditional structures of 2014's »For The Journey«, the new album is an admirable exercise in flexing creative muscles and revelling in exploratory flair. In the final trailer covering the new album, Richard West discusses his and the band's musical influences: Speaking about the band's influences, Richard comments: "I think when we come together as THRESHOLD, we all know what THRESHOLD is. We know it's going to be a combination of progressive and metal, with catchy pop elements as well. It's kinda what we've always done."
