We are happy to announce that UK band Threshold have signed for ROSfest 2018 as the Saturday night headliners.
Formed by Karl Groom 29 years ago, Threshold have been an active live and studio band ever since and has been one of the key bands that have explored progressive metal in such a manner that it has also appealed to those whose taste in music have been more geared towards progressive rock. They have explored their particular take on progressive metal on 11 studio albums so far, the most recent of which is the double album, “Legends of the Shires”, that was released through German label, Nuclear Blast, in 2017.
As with many other bands, Threshold has had their fair share of line-up alterations over the years. Founder, Karl Groom (guitars), and Richard West (keyboards) are the constant elements. And as of 2017, they are joined by Glynn Morgan (vocals), Johanne James (drums) and Steve Anderson (bass). Morgan, who was the band’s vocalist in the mid 90’s, recently returned to the band following Damian Wilson’s departure. James and Anderson have been mainstays since 1999 and 2003 respectively.
Threshold has built themselves a reputation as a hard working band that deliver quality performances as well as quality albums. They are a high status band, perhaps even more renowned in metal circuits than in the progressive rock universe, but they have three decades worth of experience and a solid reputation as a band that will always deliver. Threshold is a natural headliner for a festival such as ROSfest and we are eagerly looking forward to seeing them hit the stage as the Saturday night headliners on May 5th 2018.
