"Role of the Observer, Quantum State"

ROTO is an American prog-rock band from Atlanta, Georgia. Nick Leach and Tyler Rhodes formed the band in 2008. They were then joined by Matt Beane and Nate Epperson.
Influenced by Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, King crimson, Opeth and Mastodon, the first album ROTO released was in 2012. Upon recording it they relised they had enough material for a quick second album 'Quantum State'.
70 minutes of music over 13 tracks, all full of instrumental passages and thoughtful vocals that remind of Opeth and Muse. Sometimes dark and very mysterious but stuck with it and you soon will be lapping it up.
ROTO will be touring South eastern USA in support of Quantum State for the rest of this year and hope to expand to the rest of the world sometime soon. - (Classic) Rock Society

Role of the Observer is an American progressive rock band from Atlanta, Georgia, United States. The band’s line-up includes Nick Leach (lead guitar, vocals, piano), Tyler Rhodes (guitar, vocals), Max Leach (drums, percussion) and Nate Epperson (bass guitar, samples.) 
Founded in 2012, the group has been known to take a conceptual approach to their writing. With influences ranging from classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, King Crimson to newer progressive bands like Porcupine Tree, Tool, Mastodon, and Opeth, their sound is nothing out of the ordinary. Their exceptional musicianship brings the listener across all ranges of rhythms and their shows are an audible special that is sure to keep the listener on their feet.
Role of the Observer has released two full length concept albums which are now available on iTunes and for free download at . In early 2014 Max Leach joined the group on drums. Since, the groups sound has developed in exciting ways and they plan to release a third album in 2015.
