Threshold's single Pilot In The Sky Of Dreams won the CRS Song Of The Year award and is featured on the 2008 Hollywood soundtrack In The Name Of The King. With their highly aclaimed eighth album Dead Reckoning out now on Nuclear Blast Records, Background magazine strongly proclaims that "the kings of British prog metal are back!" Formed in the south of England in the late 1980s, Threshold combined their influences of heavy metal and progressive rock to craft their own unique sound which was a far cry from the commercial sound of the time. Wounded Land was released on GEP Records in 1993, and was hailed as the year's best debut album of the year. The following five years brought three more albums Psychedelicatessen, Extinct Instinct and Clone, and tours with bands such as Dream Theater, Psychotic Waltz and Pain Of Salvation. Threshold's original vocalist Damian Wilson featured on the first and third albums, while Glynn Morgan took over the role for the second album. By the end of the decade Threshold were signed to Inside Out Music and were fronted by vocalist Andrew McDermott. Two more studio albums Hypothetical and Critical Mass followed, bringing long-awaited chart success for the band. Threshold performed their first US show at the end of 2002 which proved to be the final concert for long-time bassist Jon Jeary. The following year Critical Energy was recorded to document Threshold's live show on DVD for the first time. A new studio albumSubsurface followed, scooping fifteen "Album Of The Month" awards to confirm it as one of the essential rock albums of 2004. The tour that followed marked the farewell of long-time guitarist Nick Midson. Threshold moved to Nuclear Blast Records and released their eighth studio album Dead Reckoning in 2007, bringing further European chart success for the band. Shortly after the release of the album, Threshold's original vocalist Damian Wilson returned for the band's longest run of Threshold shows including numerous festival headline appearances, a European tour supported by Communic, Machine Men and Serenity, and the inaugural Essence Of Progression tour in 2009 supported by Serenity and Spheric Universe Experience. To celebrate Threshold's twenty year anniversary the band released an eight disc collector's box set Paradox (The Singles Collection) at the end of 2009. Threshold are currently recording their ninth studio album due for release through Nuclear Blast Records soon.
