Scale the Summit

Scale the Summit are an American instrumental progressive metal band based out of Houston, Texas. They were formed in 2004. The band draws influences from other progressive acts as Cynic and Dream Theater. Their self-released debut album “Monument”, was released in July 10, 2007. The result of a great deal of hard work and commitment, the album stood as a testament to the dedication and perseverance of the quartet and garnered the group international recognition. Magazines such as Kerrang, Rock Sound and Amp heaped praise upon the band while early radio play also helped to bolster their reputation and fan base.

Soon after signing with Prosthetic Records in 2008, the band began recording its second album “Carving Desert Canyons” at New Jersey’s Nuthouse Recording with producer Tom Beaujour, which was released in February 17, 2009. The album taps into the many different musical textures that the group has mastered. The band has recently played as part of the Progressive Nation tour with Dream Theater, Zappa Plays Zappa and Bigelf. In 2010, they will be touring North America in support of Between the Buried and Me, along with Cynic, and Devin Townsend Project.
