Counter-World Experience – Metronomicon

Re-release of the fourth studio album “Metronomicon” by the Jazz Metal band Counter-World Experience.

Jazz Metal par excellence – no holds barred!!! Since their founding in 2001, Counter-World Experience have been raising the bar in the progressive music world. The band brings Meshuggah-style grooves together with Pat-Metheney-like textures, mixes them with electronic sound fragments to create a sound that is, above all, defined by guitar work in the best traditions of Dream Theater.

The musicians Benjamin Schwenen (guitars, guitar-synth), Sebastian Hoffmann (bass) and Thorsten Harnitz (drums) presented their calling card with their debut album, “Always Home”, and quickly began garnering recognition in the progressive scene for their sound and creative expressionism. With the following two albums, “Fraktal” (2005) and “Leaving Lotus” (2007), the international press began to take notice, and CWE became regarded as one of the driving points in the Jazz-Metal movement:


“Leaving Lotus” is a brilliant album that is highly recommended for dedicatees of Progressive Metal” (Ragazzi)

“an absolute must-buy for fans of hardcore Progressive music…heart and soul dripping from the music” (Babyblaue Seiten)


After many concerts at such prestigious locations as the Burg Herzburg Festival, the Frankfurt Music Fair, the Freakshow Artrock Festival, or as support for Matthias IA Eklundh, CWE had the backing of a solid and ever-expanding fan-base.


With this release, the band demonstrates once again how challenging Progressive Metal can be, and sets a new standard for the genre.
