Kepler Ten — Time and Tide
(White Star Records no#, 2016, DL)

by Henry Schneider, Published 2016-11-29

Time and Tide Cover art

Kepler Ten is a new melodic progressive rock band formed in 2014 after bandmates James Durand (vocals, bass, and keyboards), Steve Hales (drums and piano), and Richie Cahill (guitars) had teamed up to play some Rush tribute shows. “Time and Tide” is the preview single from their forthcoming album Delta V planned for release in early 2017. “Time and Tide” is a powerful slice of prog rock with its pulsating bass synth line, energetic drums, and searing electric guitar. There is an obvious US prog and notably Rush influence on this song that addresses the ebb and flow of life’s events over time. To me this song is more of a Sci Fi rock ’n roll song than prog rock. It conjures images of Dr. Who, Red Dwarf, and the Hitchhiker’s Guide, sucking the listener into a maelstrom of time. This preview single is due for release on November 18 and if it is any indication of their upcoming album, we are definitely in for a musical treat!
