Formed in the late 1980s, British progressive metal frontrunners THRESHOLD combined influences of heavy metal and prog rock to craft their very own trademark style. Their highly-acclaimed debut album "Wounded Land" was released in 1993, accompanied by tours with bands such as DREAM THEATER, PSYCHOTIC WALTZ and PAIN OF SALVATION. 2007 saw the release of the band’s successful Nuclear Blast debut and 8th album in total, “Dead Reckoning” and shortly afterwards, original singer Damian Wilson rejoined THRESHOLD for a period of extensive touring, replacing former vocalist Andrew “Mac” McDermott, who sadly passed away in 2011. For their 20th anniversary, the Brits released a collector’s box set entitled “Paradox – The Singles Collection 2009.

Following a five year hiatus, THRESHOLD emerged again with a brand-new studio album, recorded & produced at Thin Ice Studios (DRAGONFORCE, PENDRAGON) by Karl Groom (guitar) and Richard West (keyboards) . Progressive as always but stronger than ever - it’s not for nothing that the opus was entitled “March Of Progress”! With a total running time of almost 70(!) minutes, it marked the longest but yet most diversified release of the band’s entire career. Enchanting melodies to die for, perfectly blended with just the right pitch of harshness and topped off with Damian Wilson’s heavenly vocals. 2014 saw Threshold unleash their 10th album ‘For The Journey’ .Built on the band’s driving energy and pulsating with melodic intent, the album was arguably their most immediate to date. “This is one of our strongest albums and one of the most enjoyable to make,” shares THRESHOLD keyboard player Richard West. “I’ve probably heard it a thousand times during the recording process, but now that it’s over, I still can’t stop listening to it!”.The UK press agreed with Prog magazine declaring them “more vital and relevant than ever”, while Metal Hammer thought it “edges towards being sensational”.

Recorded at various venues across Europe in November 2014, ‘European Journey’ is the band’s first live release in nearly 10 years.Keyboard player Richard West comments: "We had a fantastic tour playing so many fan favorites going back to '97 with 'Part Of The Chaos' through 'Mission Profile', 'Pilot In The Sky Of Dreams' to the present day with 'The Box'. We recorded some shows along the way and it's turned into this really powerful double album".
