WATCHTOWER was formed in 1982 in Austin, TX and has been hailed as the first jazz inspired progressive metal band. They have released two full length albums to date: Energetic Disassembly in 1985 and 1989’s Control And Resistance, which is often hailed as the benchmark for progressive metal and has influenced a countless number of heavy, technical bands including DREAM THEATER's drummer Mike Portnoy who proclaimed, "Before there was DREAM THEATER, there was WATCHTOWER...In the 80's, WATCHTOWER's Energetic Disassembly and Control & Resistance albums were hugely influential on me…I've been waiting almost 3 decades to see what they would follow these albums up with…and now the wait is finally over!!"
