Suffocating the Bloom" is one of the most amazing prog masterpieces from the 90s, and most certainly the album that made Echolyn the top prog act from the USA to my eyes - well, ears anyway. All of this describes Echolyn quite well, particularly their album Suffocating the Bloom. On my version of this album there are over 20 tracks (because the epic is split up), so I'll just go over some highlights. The epic (A Suite for the Everyman) is the epitome of modern Symphonic progressive rock in typical Echolyn style, full of fantastic musicianship, catchy melodies, and entangled song structures.

Suffocating the Bloom Lyrics. I feel that I'm always sawing through the branch That I'm sitting on, I hope it will never break free But I know that my cut's not the real problem here It's a cancer that's in the body of this tree. And all the boughs will break and all the leaves will crumble If they're not allowed to grow They'll surely fall to be swept away And the bloom will feel the rake When the blossom takes it's tumble If they're not allowed to grow they'll surely fall
