American prog rock quartet Thematic released their album, Skyrunner earlier this year in January. 

The band are pleased the share the new video for another track from the album, “Carry The Fire” which you can see here:

“‘Carry The Fire’ represents many parallels from our world projected onto the music and story of ‘Skyrunner.’ Just as we shoulder the burden of our own lives, we have the burden of our society and politicians to reckon with. This was an original idea from guitarist Nate Buesching, and with guitarist/bassist Ryan Schmidt, it turned into one of the more hard-hitting “radio-friendly” songs on the album. It’s not without its own prog-metal twists and turns that Thematic prides itself on. Ultimately, ‘Carry the Fire’ is an epic song with a powerful message that is poignantly timed to the events happening in our world.”

 “It has been 9 months since the release of our second studio album Skyrunner.  We’re very happy and proud that it’s been met with high praises and reviews from the Prog and Metal communities during this time. We do hope to be able to perform shows at some point when the touring industry is back up to full speed once again. Until then, we’ll continue to bring more content and special announcements as the New Year unfolds.  A new EP may be happening in the near future as well.”

“Silence in Thought”:


Skyrunner is a concept album that tells of a hero’s quest to honor a promise. It is a tale of an epic journey through the fall from grace, the battle for redemption and the ultimate glory and tragedy of salvation. It is a story of honor and valor, of a tormented soul and his quest to restore the light of hope and love to a world and soul consumed by darkness. It is a story of a promise kept.
