FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

The composer and performer of progressive heavy metal known as J.S. Tolar has released his latest LP album, titled, “The Continuum.” The album is comprised of 10 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of a full hour. While technically representing Tolar's third foray into recording an official long-playing record, “The Continuum” still stands as his most prominent and polished collection of songs as a solo music artist, and in many ways may be considered his triumphant and long-awaited debut.

A shadowy, brooding record with measured amounts of aggression and intellectuality, “The Continuum” will deeply slake the thirst of a wide variety of music fans. Its blend of pianos, violins, pounding drums, chugging electric guitars and digital instrumentation is precisely orchestrated and masterfully produced, with a result that challenges the listener to thrill, to imagine and to reflect.

“The Continuum is a concept album,” writes J.S. Tolar, “that focuses on a 'sleeper's' experience of a nightmarish world where his darkness within haunts him. There is an underlying theme of hope centered around a shining light seen within this world. The sleeper is drawn closer to the light with the hope that once he reaches it, he will awaken.”

Tolar cites as main artistic influences Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, Pineapple Thief and Blackfield, all of whom would make fine sonic pairings with music from “The Continuum.”

Speaking of the tones and themes of his record, Tolar writes, “I wanted to capture a feeling of darkness, but also mixed with a strong feeling of hope. I wanted the album to have different song styles for all types of listeners while still sticking to the story and feeling of what was going on in the sleeper's world.”

In constructing his songs in a broad array of styles, Tolar has clearly succeeded. “The Continuum” is a complex, richly textured world of listening for the audiophile to sink into, yet its narrative pace remains consistent. One can feel the tale unraveling in waves of sound as the story unfolds. It's a trip any fan of remarkable music should take.

“The Continuum” by J.S. Tolar is available online worldwide. Get in early.
