Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Today, the UK’s masters of progressive metal Threshold have finally released their 12th studio album. “Dividing Lines” marks the second album since the return of former vocalist Glynn Morgan, who reunited with the band on their previous effort “Legends Of The Shires”(2017). A darker album than its predecessor, the band have described “Dividing Lines” as Legends’ darker, moodier older brother”.

Guitarist Karl Groom comments: “We’re really excited to finally get the new Threshold album out. Dividing Lines is an album we are proud of and the band cannot wait to get back to touring.”

To celebrate the album’s release, the band offers a mesmerizing lyric video for the album’s opening track “Haunted”. Watch it now below.

While “Legends Of The Shires” presented a self-contained narrative that enabled THRESHOLD to let their imaginations run wild, “Dividing Lines” eschews the conceptual approach in favor of a more traditional group of songs, linked by a hazy but unmistakable common theme. A collection of emotionally potent monuments to humanity’s eternal turmoil, “Dividing Lines” may be a dark record for dark times, but at its heart lies a message of hope for better times.

If the future of this planet looks bleak, at least the soundtrack will be spectacular. “Dividing Lines” is an album of shadows and light, of despair and hope; the human experience, rendered in dazzling, widescreen colors and performed with all the intensity and passion that has typified THRESHOLD’s more than three decades of active service. The UK’s kings of prog-metal are back, and ready to conquer the world all over again.

Formed in leafy Surrey in the late ‘80s, THRESHOLD truly blossomed in the following decade, and swiftly established themselves as the UK’s chief progressive metal standard bearers. From 1993’s “Wounded Land” debut onwards, the enduring creative core of guitarist Karl Groom and keyboard maestro Richard West constructed a unique new strain of heavy, progressive music, combining incisive melodies, thought-provoking lyrics and intricate but thunderous arrangements. Whether fronted by current vocalist Glynn Morgan, who first sang with THRESHOLD on 1994’s “Psychedelicatessen,” the late, great Andrew ‘Mac’ McDermott (a member from 1998 to 2007), or three-time alumnus Damian Wilson, THRESHOLD have marched inexorably forward across three decades of creative fervor, arguably hitting a new peak of potency on the conceptual and musical splurge of 2017’s “Legends Of The Shires.” With Glynn Morgan back in the fold, the Brits’ enduring line-up of Groom, West, drummer Johanne James and bassist Steve Anderson somehow pushed themselves to new heights, receiving widespread acclaim and finding themselves in more demand than ever before. Despite the unavoidable setback of a global pandemic, THRESHOLD arrive in 2022 in the best of health.
