Artist discography


Now, here´s a crazy musical ride for ya. This album is very entertaining and the musicianship is unbelievably awesome, expect some virtuoso skills from singer and multi-instrumentalist Mike Mills who is the man in charge of Toehider.
There are some fantastic moments on the new album "Good" but it gets a little "too" insane from time to time, although I admit that the fantastic parts are in majority here.
Recently, Arjen Lucassen invited the Melbourne based musician to appear on Ayreon´s "The Source" record (2017) so Mike Mills now has a fine reputation outside the Australian border.
"Good" is not the first release from Toehider, you will find an ocean of releases on his bandcamp page like the impressive "12 EP´s in 12 months". But now back to "Good" which is more than good, Mike Mills do have a passion for a variety of genres such as fusion, metal, prog, pomp and even comedy rock.
The title track "Good" could be something from a Tenacious D record, the next track "Funny things" is like a metal version of Sparks, very cool.
The best song is "This conversation is over", a truly superb pomp-prog-fusion anthem that is a wetdream for fans of Devin Townsend. It´s one of the best songs I´ve heard this year.
"Millions of musketeers" sounds like The Darkness going prog, an ok song that is followed by the epic "How do ghosts work?". Another highlight on this 8 track album.
About Mike Mills, he works hard every day of his life and he should definitely take home is hard earned pay all on his own.
