Scale The Summit

The origins of instrumental heavy metal group Scale the Summit date to 2004, when guitarists Chris Letchford and Travis LeVrier met as students at the Los Angeles Musicians Institute, then came into contact with fellow scholar and drummer Pat Skeffington, before completing their lineup with bassist Jordan Eberhardt several months later. Two years of rehearsal and sonic self-discovery followed until, at the end of 2006, all of the musicians relocated to Letchford's hometown of Houston, Texas and finished sculpting their exceptionally technical brand of "adventure metal," as they like to call it, for release on a self-financed debut album, immodestly named Monument. Turns out their confidence was largely justified by the impressive amalgam of progressive exploration (think Cynic, Dream Theater, Kong) and sheer virtuosity (reminiscent of instrumental guitar heroes like Joe Satriani and Steve Vai), and it wasn't long before Scale the Summit were racking up accolades from some of the world's most respected heavy metal magazines. This also earned them a contract with L.A.'s Prosthetic Records, and a return to the studio for the recording of the group's eagerly anticipated sophomore album, Carving Desert Canyons, which was released at the start of 2009. The band returned in 2011 with its third album of technical guitar wizardry, The Collective. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi

so very melodic in the leads.....wo u l d have loved to see them live. Its always the test...and inside event for acoustic reasons. Some of the best bands that play in an outside arena venue doesn't always jive with the sound

My first encounter with StS was when I saw them open for the Progressive Nation Tour in 2009 and they absolutely blew me away. Like other commenters, I also got to meet them afterwards and they were really cool.

Now I always make it a point to see the opening band at every show I go to. These guys absolutely held their own with Dream Theater and Zappa Plays Zappa.

Could you just imagine how the world would be if it looked like the album cover for Migration and the band's music was always played in the background? I would live in that world in a heart beat if I could.

I love this band, and managed to meet them after a show in LA. Great guys, very friendly. Got a photo and all my merch signed - happy to support guys as talented and down to earth as they are. Each album is better than the last - I'll always be a fan.

I had the pleasure of meeting these talented individuals in Little Rock! They put on a fantastic show. I'm a fan!

Try the artist Animals As Leaders! It's a single with the guitarist Tosin Abasi. Some of his songs such as Tempting Time and On Impulse are much like this band tone.

Good music for background AND foreground. Their harmonic content is doubled by beautiful phrases mixed with aggressive rhythmic grooves. What's not to like about this band?
