From Blue To Gray, formed in 2008 by founding members Tim Drexler (guitar), Jordan Myers (bass), Dan Graham (drums), and Dale Fewless (vocals), quickly gained a reputation locally for highly energetic and utterly unpredictable performances. Their blend of technical and equally devastating riffs is complemented by a conscious effort to not overlook neither melody nor interesting transitions. National Rock Review says, “From Blue To Gray literally blew me away, they unleashed the hell hounds, screaming blood soaked words of unrelenting suffering. This band is tight, technical, and just my cup of fucking tea.” ABSTENTION OF INTERFERENCE, a concept record about the extent of human suffering and the slavery of the thinking mind is a blistering mix of heavy metal styles, but also features a wide range of other musical styles including progressive rock, swing, jazz and blues. Tim says of the eclectic nature of the record, “We all kind of went through our own personal trials and tribulations during the making of this recording which really bonded us as a band. We wanted to make sure that the music as well as the lyrics reflected how we were feeling, and we made a conscious effort to convey the massive amounts of emotion and passion to the listener. Most importantly, we also wanted people to know that we meant every fucking word of it. We needed them to feel that”. PRODUCER JAMIE KING added, “One of the things that made this band interesting to me right off the bat was their attention to transitions in their songwriting. Add that to their already catchy riffing, and I really think they have something marketable, which is as awesome as it is important. This is a masterpiece of marketable progressive metal”.
