Distance by Structural Disorder
Progressive rock/metal band Structural Disorder from Sweden released a second album, produced and mixed by Jocke Skog (Clawfinger), earlier in 2016 through Lion Music (home of acts such as Seventh Wonder) and it has so far been highly acclaimed by fans and critics.
"The best progressive metal to come out of Sweden since Seventh Wonder!" – Lion Music
”Each of the compositions is a musical feast for the ears.” – Artur Chachlowski
”[…] a very strong album that has impressed me no end and which definitely won’t fade into the furthest recesses of my mind anytime soon.” – Matt Spall – 8,25/10
”I would suggest any fan of good prog or prog metal to give these guys a spin.” – Lonestar – 9/10
“I remember favourably reviewing Structural Disorder’s first album so I was curious to hear the progressive metal groups follow up. […] Distance is the new album and the band have clearly developed their sound somewhat since and the result is an even more appealing album.” – seaoftranquillity.org – 4/5
”If you’ve ever wondered how many more boundaries progressive bands can break, I think we’ve found another one here” – www.progmetalzone.com

Risks and challenges
The album is already recorded, mixed and mastered and is available at most digital music providers. Our effort will instead be put into two things:
1.) Making sure the campaign get spread far and wide! We need all the help we can get and we also know we have fans all over the world who wants to take part in this campaign; we just have to reach them. This will be our number one focus and where we spend all our energy the upcoming month!
2.) Making sure the product(s, hopefully) meet the highest possible standard. We care a great deal about the look and sound of our release and we know that our peer group does the same. Because of this, we have set a later release date than we would probably need to, just to make sure that we can do everything we can to make sure our product is absolutely stellar before we ship it.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
