This band’s wings may have been denied, but drummer Alec Kossof took them right back. How? Because he’s a professional acrobat. And no, we’re not making that up. But aside from that fun fact, Wings Denied is a need-to-know because their new EP Voyager is an excellent display of progressive metal. It’s got groove, it’s got melody, it’s got heaviness, and it dares to experiment. Want guitar solos? Right here. Want insane creativity? You got it. Voyager is a must have. Plus, they gave 10% of their physical pre-order money from this EP to benefit a seabird sanctuary. How fitting and how cute?
