Unsigned & Streamed: Surgeon

Posted by on April 19, 2013

Why should major label bands be the only ones who get love? Unsigned & Streamed is a column where we stream a song from an unsigned band we at Metal Insider really dig.

This week, we’re shining a light on Philadelphia’s Surgeon. This prog rock/metal trio first gained critical acclaim with its 2008 debut Angry Guest, recorded with famed engineer Steve Albini (Nirvana, The Jesus Lizard, Neurosis). Since then, Surgeon has gained a strong following in the city of brotherly love’s live scene. And on May 21, the group will release its sophomore follow-up Chemical Reign, co-produced by Kevin Antreassian (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Mike Portnoy, Foxy Shazam) at Backroom Studios in New Jersey. Surgeon takes Mastodon riffs and injects them with a heavy dose of prog rock. Listen to the song “Deadly Are The Words” for yourself in the stream below. Then if you really like it, download the song for FREE here.


Surgeon will be celebrating the release of Chemical Reign in advance on May 19 with a show at Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia. Stay updated on the group’s upcoming plans via their website and Facebook page.
