Scale The Summit at The Tower Theater July 2009

Scale The Summit is a young band out of Houston, Texas. They are currently part of the Progressive Nation Tour with Bigelf, Zappa Plays Zappa and Dream Theater. Their show at the Tower Theatre showcased the talent of the band whose average age is 22.

Possessing good form and great sound, the band played their unique style of instrumental music. They refer to their music as "adventure metal" as it takes the listener on a mental journey.

Their lead guitarist, Chris Letchford, plays an 8-string electric guitar. ?As far as fitting in with modern music,? Letchford says, ?I don?t think that we fit in with anybody-- at all.?

One of the highlights from their set was "Sargasso Sea" from their latest album Carving Desert Canyons.
