"Texas progressive metal artist Six Minute Century starts off the festivities with a long awaited, and well deserved appearance. Hard hitting, melodic, progressive, great songwriting, and soaring vocals are all a part of what this truly talented American band has to offer. With years of live, touring and recording experience between them, it is far past time that the Progpower century hits the Six Minute mark. Fans of Savatage, John Arch"esque" vocals and other similar bands of the genre rejoice. Check out their debut release "Time Capsules" on ITunes, CD Baby, or through Nightmare Records."

Michael takes over for John Sample (Sampy) who was with the band since its inception. Everyone in SMC wish Sampy the best in his musical endeavors.

Six Minute Century is currently finishing up the songs for the follow up to their critically acclaimed debut CD "Time Capsules", on Nightmare Records. The band plans to enter the studio to start recording in January. The, as of yet, untitled CD will be released in the summer of 2010.

"The new music from "SIX MINUTE CENTURY" while maintaining their signature sound, the new album sounds darker and more progressive, again this band throws everything and the Kitchen sink into their music, but in such a wonderfully unique and skilled way, you’re captivated and moved emotionally."   Lance King - voice in metal and CEO of Nightmare Records
