Prog-Rockers Syzygy Return With a New Prog-Rock-Titled CD

Posted By on Thu, Jul 30, 2009 at 2:32 PM


Local prog-rockers Syzygy celebrate the release of their new album, Realms of Eternity, with a show at the Beachland Ballroom at 8 p.m. Saturday.

The group released its first album, Cosmos and Chaos, as Witsend in the early ’90s. After a lengthy hiatus, they returned with a name change and a new album, The Allegory of Light, in 2003.

The band includes guitarist Carl Baldassarre, keyboardist Sam Giunta, drummer Paul Mihacevich and bassist Al Rolik. Although all the band members sing, on Realms of Eternity, Mark Boals — known for his work with Yngwie Malmsteen and Uli John Roth — gave the band a vocals boast. The album, a series of musical reflections on the afterlife, was recorded by veteran local producer/engineer Chris Keffer, who recently joined the staff at Ante Up Audio.

To cap off their celebration, Syzygy travel to Pittsburgh next weekend to perform at the Three Rivers Prog festival at the Pepsi Roadhouse on a bill with veteran prog-rockers Crack the Sky and King’s X. —Anastasia Pantsios
