"Foreseen - Powerquest Comp. review"

"Powerquest-The Awakening" This release claims to feature the best new U.S. bands in power, melodic, prog and true metal. I’d say that is an accurate description, and I must admit that the overall level is extremely high. The likes of Twilight Kingdom, Digital Ruin,Reading Zero, Soundscape, Aztec Jade, FORESEEN and Delusion are to be categorized as progressive metal, while Monarque, Cage and Mystic-Force are more power inspired. Midevil are power with thrash influences, while Ion Vein are rather melodic & progressive. Industrial Eden is a mix of progressive with some power, while Winter's Bane and Empyria are both true metal, with progressive touches. Absolute highlights include Monarque (featuring ex Kamelot vocalist Mark Vanderbilt), FORESEEN, Mystic Force, but like I mentioned earlier, the overall level is excellent, no average stuff here! I’d rate "Powerquest - The Awakening" among the best metal compilations released in recent years. - Den Of Iniquity Magazine


“Great show last night. It was quite a blast.” - Michael Bonnici (fan)

"FORESEEN - Die Zukunft Beginnt Jetzt!"

"FORESEEN - Die Zukunft Beginnt Jetzt! The great disc "Prophet's Dream" is a must for each and every fan of Power-Progressive-Music, that's a fact! It's full of emotions, intense melodies and fantastic musical ideas. I've made the following interview with Michael (see you some day!), voice of Foreseen. Read what he said about Underground music, the US-Scene, Germany and much much more! ENJOY!! "

Appearing from out of Pensacola, FL, the band climbed into the 1997 global progressive metal scene with their debut album, "Prophet's Dream". They established themselves once more in 2001 with their sophomore release, "Soulless Age". The band combines a myriad of unique influences to create one melodically aggressive sound, which can only be described as Foreseen. Each song is a culmination of talents from Gavin Meagher, Gary Humphrey, Michael Lukers and Joe Hammond. The songwriting process joins together inspiring vocals with undeniable signature sound, to produce body-moving grooves and thought provoking subjects. With standout tracks like "Prophet's Dream, Twilight Winter and Soulless Age" under their collective belt and future crowd pleasers as "Only The Wicked, So Far Gone and Mr. Hyde", don't be surprised to find Foreseen on a stage in your city very soon!

Creating vocal melodies since the age of seventeen, Gavin actually began experimenting with music at a younger age, by playing guitar. Then something magical happened. As he stared through the looking glass of such vocalists as Rob Halford, Layne Staley and Ian Gillan, he started setting his sights on rock stardom. Finding his way into the musical fold of Foreseen as current vocalist, Gavin is stretching out his broad range and expressing a diverse collection of emotional boundaries. Whether Gavin is using his voice soaring high or devastatingly low, he captures the meaning and intensity of every lyric to create memorable melodies. "I get off on the live feedback of every person we perform for and in return, that interaction between us makes for an electric performance."

Playing stringed instruments since the age of eight, music has always been present in Gary's life. Having a strong love for the live performance, he has been playing gigs since sixteen. Though Gary is able to break a song down to its subtle elements, his true nature in playing is all out, energy driven riffs. The tendency for most guitar players is to over play. Surround yourself with great players, and you can create something great with more understandable elements. To me its better to feed off the energy of the group around me.

Michael has performed many styles of music since he began this journey. Some of Lukers' inspirations come from influential artists such as Myron Grombacher, Johan Langell, Snowy Shaw, Vik Foxx, Shannon Larkin and Mark Zonder (to name drop just a few). Michael has the ability to push Foreseen's intricately powerful music while also letting the "experience" breathe. "I love being one of the four driving and visual entities in our band. Playing my kit is a feeling that pumps through my blood every day. We try to entertain as one big machine. When that happens, this band can move the crowd with high energy. That's when it's a good show.

JOE HAMMOND: Bass Guitar
The slamming low-end frequencies found in Foreseen's music are produced by bassist extraordinaire Joe Hammond. Playing his instrument since the age of ten, Joe found his home as the monster bassist of Foreseen. Possessing an extreme talent for finding inside grooves, he also ventures into the spotlight without taking away from the overall song structure. Joe's interpretations of bass guitar come from studying such performers as Steve Harris, Geezer Butler and John Entwistle. Joe's experience on the instrument gives him a confident aura and wild inner strength. A man on a mission to entertain you on stage and in the studio...
