‘The Prelude’ is a Debut E.P from ‘Fire garden’ (A progressive rock band from Chicago). The Album contains 3 tracks up-to 19 minutes of music showing their vast influences and musicianship skills. ‘The Prelude’ takes a listener to journey to experience thematic lyrics, skull crushing riffs, grand epic hemes, powerful vocals and much more.


The opening track ‘Time Machine’ is truly represents what Fire Garden is all about its opens with a grand theme and up beat verse and some crazy solos later on, ‘Far from Grace’ shows the mellow side of the band and ‘Forsaken’ demonstrates the experimental side with a mix of acoustic guitar passages and heavy guitar riffs.


To conclude ‘The Prelude’ is an album which gives you different taste with every listen, it contains the choruses you can sing along, guitar and keyboard solos you can remember by heart, bass lines and drum beats you can groove on and the lyrics you can get along with it.
