Progressive Rock, Neo-Prog
US neo-progressive rock band World Trade finally followed-up their impressive 1989 self-titled debut in 1995 with Euphoria. At this point the band featured bassist/vocalist Billy Sherwood (who had briefly been a part of Yes) as well as guitarists Bruce Gowdy (ex-Unruly Child, ex-Stone Fury) and Jay Schellen (ex-Hurricane). World Trade's core sound remains unchanged from the debut. It's more or less a mellow progressive rock sound based on the later Yes style, with tranquil guitar melodies and Sherwood's high, Jon Anderson-style vocals.
