Enemy Remains - No Faith in Humanity

Enemy Within, Enemy Remains, Enemy Of Reality… seriously, where’s the love people? Why all this hate and polemic?!
 
Apparently, Enemy Remains is a band that was formed in 2005 by original Fates Warning drummer, Steve Zimmerman, and guitarist Tommy Blardo. They have released an album so far and done some local touring, but largely have not achieved to make any considerable mark in the international music scene and I hardly thing that their sophomore album “No Faith in Humanity” might take them a long way towards realizing their goal.

Enemy Remains to release new studio album “No Faith In Humanity” on January 20th 2017

Global Music Award-winning heavy metal group Enemy Remains was formed in 2005 by original Fates Warning drummer, Steve Zimmerman, and guitarist Tommy Blardo. By 2014 - after releasing their first full-length album, “Two Faces Two Minds”, sharing the stage with rock luminaries such as Alice Cooper, Queensrÿche and Heaven & Hell, being the first local artist invited to perform at Hartford, CT's new 20,000 capacity stadium, XL Center, and having their song “Live For Today” featured on Rock Band for Xbox - the band had solidified themselves as a talent to be reckoned with in the northeastern US.
 

Source - Return to Nothing

Source is a Colorado based band that’s weird to put it bluntly. They have a modern sound, their performances can be rather meandering and intricate at times, but overall their arrangements are not always as complex, so you would be hard pressed not to call them prog… rock? Probably rock, because they’re not really metal, but there’s also something very contemporary American “rock” about their riffs and overall sound.
