DREAD FASCINATION is a brainchild of American musician/producer Graham Butler. Fortunately, that does not mean his endless self-indulgence, 'hey listen to me' egotistical meanderings. :) Instead, a bunch of counterparts provide very strong support for their chairman who complements the full sound rather than simply trying to rule process. Kevin Pollack impersonates the lead singer (sort of a cross between Nick D'Virgilio and Neal Morse), Bill Franco (ex-Pavlov's Dog) is around for guitar performance, Brandon Covelli with Jeroen Hendrix can be heard on additional keyboards, John Hegner and Peter Calo add piano and guitar respectively, Sarah Breidenbach delivers some backing vox. I'd describe the general approach like a slice of distinctive progressive credentials. In terms of structure, the musical content has apparent Spock's Beard resemblance, time after time interrupted by edgy riffs a'la Porcupine Tree. All accents are superbly executed, thus giving each song its own identity that's catchy, dense and sensitive.  8)
