Outside of the borders of the U.S. rock and metal scene, Prog has a voice that screams out loud; but finding talents like Dream Theater and Symphony X in a band on the rise is a rare gem to unearth. On September 5th, 2014, the World Famous Whisky A Go-Go played host to an experience that nobody in the crowd saw coming, and it came in the form of Shattered Systems.
Warming the stage for Dizzy Reed’s Hookers and Blow, Shattered Systems raised the bar on the L.A. Music Scene with a half hour of searing guitar licks and a high intensity performance of real prog metal. Where did these guys come from? As it happens, their origins start in Tucson, AZ of all places.
