ARCH ECHO are a collective of young virtuoso musicians whose meeting in 2016 at the Berklee College of Music kickstarted one of the most exciting projects the progressive music world has seen this decade. Taking influence from jazz, prog rock, metal, contemporary classical and everything in between, their refined and intelligent take on instrumental prog is as fresh and challenging as it gets.
ARCH ECHO’s initial videos, “Earthshine” and “Hip Dipper”, were an instant hit in the progressive community and have already racked up a combined 100k views on YouTube, prompting the band to write and record their debut full-length.
Instrumental Prog guitarist Chris Schiermann is a central figure in the US Tech-metal scene who released his debut album in December 2017.
The SCHIERMANN self-titled debut is a journey of adventurous, infectious melodies and intelligent grooves topped off with a large dose virtuoso lead work inspired by many players across the decades. Chris’ first love Randy Rhoads’ style is very present, along with the grit of Van Halen, finesse of Steve Vai and the inventiveness of Tosin Abasi.
