  • Terminus won Round 4 of the Times Musicians Showcase.

As mentioned earlier, Round 4 was super close. It came down to a difference of three points between the two Fayetteville bands — Tom and Hebron and Terminus, with the latter advancing to the March 1 finals on the strength of some raging prog-metal. It's hard to exaggerate just how impressed all the judges were with this band, especially considering the fact that they're all 17-18 years old.

Guest judge Shayne Gibbs wrote, "I've been playing Guitar for probably half as long as they've been alive, and they're all way better than I am. Give 'em some time to polish their stuff, then look out." Judge CT wrote, "I loved it!" These dudes killed it. These kids are only gonna get better."

Mandy McBryde echoed that: "They look way too young to sound this good." Grayson Shelton wrote, "That drummer will never be out of work! Really full sound for a three piece."

There are more photos and a video after the jump.
