ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Metro Society is a melodic progressive rock/metal project group from the mind of guitarist/songwriter Chris Mangold. Chris teamed up with bassist Ian Ringler (In The Machine, Magnitude 9) to collaborate on writing the music for a new project.

During the writing sessions an idea surfaced to combine the songs with a conceptual storyline based on the Paris Metro system. The duo brought in poet Chris Cree to help with converting the words of the story into lyrics for the music.

After recording the guitars, bass, and keys the group took on new life when other musicians were invited to record the remaining parts. Vocalist, Corey Brown, was asked to perform the vocals for the entire album and delivered a world class performance.

The project turned into a family effort as both Doug Brown, Corey's nephew, and Bill Mangold, Chris' father, stepped in to record the drum tracks. Final recording, production, and mixing took place at Royal Recordings Studio with the assistance from the extremely talented Bill Douglass.

Taken from Metal Invader


The band has put extra care in the concept story of the album which takes part in the Parisian metro and has as main characters a man and a woman. In here you can enjoy mostly melancholic compositions with an excellent vocal performance by Corey Brown (Balance of Power). There are a few scattered metal explosions that spice up the album, but the majority of the songs are hypotonic and atmospheric. The piano – voice “Within a Moment” song reminded me of Labyrinth`s similar magnificent efforts. “A Journey in Paris” is not an innovative record that will change the course of progressive, it moves in safe paths. It is a nice, honest and enjoyable release that has things to offer to the listener. The music is strongly attached to the story and punctuates the sequence of the emotions produced by it. Let`s hope that a company would come up and sign them. They are surely better than many wannabes that have huge contracts.

Taken from The Laser's Edge

Prime prog metal
This is prime prog metal a bit in the vein of Redemption, Prymary and even some Rush. The highlight is the sprawling 18 minute "Lost In Paris". Plenty of good crunch that seems to build through out. A promising start for a new band.

Taken from Sea of Tranquility

This is pretty heavy, technical, and progressive stuff
The one great thing about Metro Society is that they don't really sound like any other band on the prog-metal scene, so don't expect any Dream Theater, Symphony X, or Vanden Plas moments here for the most part. Other than some dark aspects that might fall in line with latter day Fates Warning, this is very original sounding. Singer Brown has a voice that fits the brooding style of the music perfectly, whether he is hitting some soaring falsetto's or the occasional mid-range gruff passage, in which he fluctuates between the two on the kick ass opener "King of His Own World". The bands more melodic and catchy side surfaces on "Welcome Hope" featuring Brown's tender vocals and some tasty guitar work from Chris Mangold. Hard hitting progressive metal, with beefy guitar and stabbing synths, is heard on "Hills Will Roll", and the band really lay down the crunch factor on "Metro", a killer instrumental with intricate bass lines, heavy riffs, wild synths, and flailing drum work. Brown almost hits Dio territory on the Medieval and progressive sounding "Purgatory", and the band launches into multi-part, prog-metal of epic proportions on the near 19-minute "Lost in Paris". This one features plenty of great textures and instrumental bits, as the band moves from acoustic sections to progressive passages to out and out metal.
