Originally formed in 1992, the Denver, CO-based hard rock outfit the Quiet Room combines elements of prog metal (especially evident in keyboards reminiscent at times of the genre's kingpins, Dream Theater) along with good old fashioned heavy metal. Founded by guitarists Jason Boudreau and George Glasco, the original lineup consisted of vocalist Chadd Castor, bassist Josh Luebbers, drummer Mike Rice, and keyboardist Jeff Janeczko, which recorded a demo in 1995 that circulated in the metal underground. The buzz was so great about the band that they were asked to play a metal festival in Baltimore before even having an album out, which eventually led to the group signing on with the Metal Blade label. 1998 saw the release of the Quiet Room's debut full-length, Introspect, but by the time their sophomore effort, Reconceive, hit the racks in 2000, half of the band had left and newcomers Pete Jewell (vocals), Rob Munshower (bass), and Graeme Wood (keyboards) joined stalwarts Boudreau, Glasco, and Janeczko.
