Progressive Rock BR
RECOMMENDS
STRAWBS
"The Ferryman's Curse"

Strawbs (or The Strawbs) are an English rock band founded in 1964. Although the band started out as a bluegrass group they eventually moved on to other styles such as folk, folk rock, (briefly) glam rock and progressive rock..Members included Sandy Denny (who later went on to join Fairport Convention), Rick Wakeman (who was discovered whilst in the Strawbs, joined Yes and has had a lengthy solo career). They are best known for their hit, Part of the Union, which reached number two in the UK charts in February 1973, as well as for Lay Down a number 12 UK hit from the same LP. Their album Hero And Heroine was voted one of the Top 50 prog records of all time by Rolling Stone magazine. After two years, the english Symphonic Prog Rock Band Strawbs is back with a new album titled as "The Ferryman's Curse", a new musical trip composed by this incredible band from the seventies.  "The Ferryman's Curse" is a blend of albums like "Ghosts", "Hero And Heroine", "Nomadness", "Deep Cuts", "Burning For You" and "Deadlines". Enjoy their music.
VERGANTI
"Atlas"

The band is called Verganti, comes from Italy, formed in 2015, they found in the progressive rock of the 70's, a strong and common matrix. "Atlas", their first album, is a completely self-produced "concept album", which through ten chapters leads the listener back in time, when the man and woman, as we know them today, did not exist. From a more strictly musical point of view, "Atlas" is the attempt of Verganti to propose "cultured" music to a world of "disposable". A goal that, in keeping with the roots of progressive rock, uses the melody of the Italian singing as a constant value in all pieces. The album was played and played, searching for the sound of the '70s, looking at groups such as the New Trolls "Concerto Grosso", Le Orme and some touchs of Uriah Heep debut. But also the neo-prog of current bands such as Mystery and Iluvatar.
TUNA DE TIERRA
"Tuna de Tierra"

Sounds from the desert, wide landscape full of sand at the sunset, intolerable warm atmospheres, lysergic imagination nurturing air. The Tuna de Tierra leaves for a trip with neither destination nor end, but just the purpose to move endlessly. The band was born in Napoli (Italy) in the first months of the 2013 from the long-standing union between Alessio De Cicco (guitar and vocals) and Luciano Mirra (bass guitar) who, thanks to the collaboration of Jonathan Maurano (drums), take them to the totally self-producted first EP recording. "EPisode I: Pilot", released in the June of 2015, is the result of continuous musical research and, thanks to it, the band collects lots of approvals, including reviews from several international music zines and the insertion in remarkable compilations. With the entrance of Marco Mancaniello behind the drums, at the end of 2015, the sound research of the band can finally keep on going.
YPNOS
"Beholder"

The Ypnos project was born (in current formation) in October 2010 by the collaboration of five musicians from the rock band Bologna. Although the artistic backgrounds are different, the band finds in the progressive rock the musical language that unites them, as more than everyone else allows to harmoniously blend their own ideas and emotions. It is therefore within this sound size that the group decides to span, joining studio recording sessions in a discreet live activity in Emilia Romagna, in which Tyranny Suite - the first work of the band - is presented as a preview - a concept that speaks of the life arch of man, succube of his emotion at every stage of existence.
DROPSHARD
"Paper Man"

Dropshard, formed in 2007, have reached over the years the attention of the international public devoted to Progressive Rock. The sound of Dropshard roots in the 70s Prog and in the contemporary Prog/Alternative scene, creating an interesting and innovative contact point between these different genres. Clean and basic sounds, mixed with the deep and expressive voice of frontman Enrico Scanu, are the hallmark of this band. Dropshard have released two studio albums. The first one, Anywhere But Home (distributed internationally by Sonic Vista Music, an English record label), came to life in 2011. Here the style of the band finds its first expression in a suite of eight movements and in the bonus track Freedom Supermarket (one of the most acclaimed songs in Dropshard's live performances). 2014 is the year in which Dropshard achieved artistic maturity with the release of their second studio album, Silk (Sonic Vista Music, now in its second printing), hailed by international critic and by the public. Silk's first single release, Insight, is included in the compilation The Art Of Sysyphus Vol.
MAUSOLEUM GATE
"Into A Dark Divinity"

With an increased emphasis on Hammond C3 organ and keyboard interplay (courtesy of bass player Wicked Ischianus), songs such as "Condemned To Darkness" and the lurking "Apophis" augment the high-wire vocals of Varpula, who has further established himself as one of the most distinctive vocalists in traditional metal. The melody-driven "Solomon's Key" and NWOBHM-inspired "Horns" recall an era where actual songwriting would make or break a band. The graceful closing title track also offers up a new angle from Mausoleum Gate, showcasing lush textures and atmospheric acoustic guitar work. A must-have for any and all traditional metal aficionados, "Into a Dark Divinity" proves Mausoleum Gate are one of the scene's best new true metal torchbearers. Singular, alluring and able to captivate audiences of all varieties, Mausoleum Gate represent a new front in authentic vintage metal.
MAVARA
"Consciousness"

Mavara, is Iran's first premier progressive rock band. The name Mavara translates to "beyond everything you think" which speaks to the essence of their music. The band was formed in 2001 by composer/keyboardist Farhood Ghadiri and over the years has had a fluid line-up of members, performing extensively in Tehran and Karaj. Currently Mavara is comprised of Ghadiri along with Ashkan Hamedi - vocals,Scott Abene - guitar, Sina Khodaiefer/bass, Anis Oveisi - keyboards and Jim Welch - Drums Because of their unique sound and talent, Mavara quickly gained notoriety in Iran, receiving acclaim from the Tehran Industry and Science University as "Best Rock Band at a Live Performance". Their music is best described in terms of their influences, with a generous helping of Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree and Marillion being the first bands that come to mind. In other words, more on the melodic side of Progressive Rock.
HADAL SHERPA
"Hadal Sherpa"

We are Hadal Sherpa, a five member progressive instrumental band from Finland. We have been active for few years now, during this time we have played a few shows in Finland but mainly we have been working hard at our rehearsal place creating music. Now we are ready with mixing our debut album and soon it will be mastered, so the next step is pressing the album and this is where we need your help. We have eight songs ready and they will be released on CD, hopefully also on vinyl. The album will be an exiting journey through different moods and landscapes, from very mellow to quite dramatic... We hope to be able to share it with you as soon as possible!
BASTA
"Elemento Antropico"

Our name is Basta!, which means "Stop"?  but nothing will stop us! Since four years we plow stages, heat hearts, ask brains, we sweat and we worry, we eat together before rehearsals, drink together during rehearsals, senseless laugh together after rehearsals. We thought to make prog, but we are not so sure: waiting to have a label for our music ? not only in a metaphorical sense ? we continue to play our oddly curious instruments, mixing the pungent notes of diamonica with the groove of drum'n'bass, making the melodies of the bass clarinet in dialogue with the pressing of the electric guitar riffs. Listen to us, but then keep persisting and listen to us again: if you want to understand us you need time, a working mind and a heart eager for novelty. It's a global love what we ask you for. We try to make you ours: you, try to make us yours!
KING CRIMSON
"Live in Chicago"

"If we are looking for a KC live (show); Chicago was exceptional." - Robert Fripp. Featuring many iconic King Crimson pieces performed live by this line-up for the first time, and some being played live for the first time ever (including Islands, The Lizard Suite, The Errors, Fallen Angel, Cirkus and more), Live In Chicago is a double CD set taken from the band's most recent US tour. Presented as a King Crimson Collectors? Club special edition, Live in Chicago is double cd set packaged in a media book with a 24 page booklet featuring photographs by Tony Levin, introductory notes by Robert Fripp and photos/ production notes by KC producer and manager David Singleton.
L'ALBERO DEL VELENO
"Tale of a dark fate"

L'Albero Del Veleno plants its roots in 2010 to create instrumental music following the style born from the soundtracks of horror and thriller movies of the 60's/70's/80's. The various musical influences, along with the passion for cinema, form a project strongly introspective and emotional, made even more special by the video contribution always present in live performances; every song is in fact supported by a original screenplay for the production of short films. The band is also responsible for composing soundtracks for horror movies on demand. The Line-up are: Nadin Petricelli - Keyboards & Synth, Lorenzo Picchi - Guitars, Michele Andreuccetti - Bass, Marco Brenzini - Flute, Jacopo Ciani - Viola & Violin and Claudio Miniati - Drums.
DARREL TREECE-BIRCH
"Healing Touch"

Darrel Treece-Birch returns in 2017 with a new instrumental rock album, filled with passion and defiance. The struggle of one man, who represents us all, frail and strong, conflicted yet resolved, the turmoil that finds the resolution to move forward in life. The music is elegant and complex yet familiar to the human spirit. Words have a way of rewriting our future, but so does sound and maybe in a more profound way because it speaks to our heart where possibility is infinite. Ten songs, ten messages of change, each transforming us from the inside out This new work is nothing short of a manifesto of the soul, Treece-Birch gives us the opus of the mind. Melodic Revolution Records is grassroots label & community of independent artists waging a revolution within an industry redefining itself.
ANDREA ORLANDO
"Dalla Vita Autentica"

Andrea Orlando (Finisterre, Höstsonaten, La Coscienza di Zeno - drums, percussion, keyboards) and his solo album titled as "Dalla vita autentica", a complex but never boring record of modern and Mediterranean progressive rock, mostly made of contrasts between mellow orchestral parts with piano and strings, and other more rushing and "rock" ones, in which in particular Alessandro Corvaglia's expressive voice is the absolute protagonist. The long title-track at the end is a perfect example of this, over 16 minutes of sound explorations that perfectly seal a beautiful album.
NEKTAR
"Live In Bremen"

This Double-CD set was recorded in 2015 at a concert at the Meisenfrei Blues Club in Bremen. It was the last concert of Nektar with its founder Roye Albrighton, who sadly died on July 26th, 2016 following a long illness. We feel this is Roye's Farewell to all you dear Nektar Fans. It has great energy and projects what we all felt that night: Our love for Nektar and life. Although this is the last recording of Roye, his presence will always continue to glow in our hearts, whether on or off stage.
GERSON WERLANG
"Sistema Solar"
(ON VINYL)

Brazilian composer and musician Gérson Werlang is a progressive/crossover prog artist already known for being a member of Poços & Nuvens. But besides his tenure in this outfit Werlang is also a guitarist, poet and composer in his own right. 2008 saw him start a solo career, when he issued his first solo album, Memórias do Tempo, jointly released by Rock Symphony in Brazil and Musea Records in France. Now he is back with his second solo album, Sistema Solar. The album was released in CD, LP and digital formats. Gérson plays electric and acoustic guitars, mandolin and melodica and is the composer of all themes, where the planets serve as motives to different matters, as ecology (Netuno), cosmic love [Os Anéis de Saturno], prejudice (Você Ainda Vai Precisar de Urano), and other matters.
PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI 
"Emotional Tattoos"

To the very day, Premiata Forneria Marconi (aka PFM) is considered the most influential and respected Italian rock band and on October 27th, 2017 InsideOutMusic will release the band's new studio album "Emotional Tattoos". Now, the band reveals the album's striking cover artwork created by Stefano Bonora / Artkademy. The band comments: "On the cover you see a fantastic spaceship run by Franz and Patrick, bringing the band to places never explored before, introducing the audience into the new PFM world, where music has not only one identity but evolves and embraces many genres. PFM began writing their new opus in 2016, started recording in early 2017 and finished both an English and Italian version of the over an hour long record in July at Metropolis Recording Studio with Alessandro Marcantoni.
WOBBLER
"From Silence to Somewhere"

Norway's leading Symphonic Prog band Wobbler have inked a deal with Karisma Records and are set to release their fourth full-length album, "From Silence to Somewhere" on the 20th October. "From Silence to Somewhere" offers up a sound that is enigmatic, multi-flavoured and adventurous, with the use of copious amounts of Mellotron, Moog, Hammond, Chamberlin and other classical analogue keyboards, and of course the renowned Rickenbacker Bass. The guitar riffs go from poignant to edgy. Melancholy harmonies combine with powerful crescendos and high-energy, spinet-driven passages, flavoured with a touch of Flamenco and Italian Renaissance music to produce and album comprising four epic tracks that explore the idea of metamorphosis and alchemy. It is a natural continuation from Wobbler's previous albums, but with a darker, more introspective edge.
ALIANTE
"Forme Libere"

The Aliante are a great surprise in Italian music, creative, careful, never dispersive and never excessive: they have the clear ideas and the talent they need to put it into practice. They know perfectly playing with the melody and harmonious twists to create emotional and emotional enchanting music. A new sound sensation that smells of music without being snoby. Only a plane planing, calm, reflective, with a few moments of slight madness in a faster descent can fully describe (or at least give the same kind of sensations) of the music you can hear in this album of Aliante. Unpretentious music wants to open the boundaries of symphonic progressive rock to end in open and wide open skies, where the melody is absolute master and at the same time a travel companion of rhythms and unusual times.
THE TWIN MILLS
"Enceladus"

If you are patient enough, in 40 minutes you'll be. Pleased to have listened to a very carefully made record! To give you a little more context, "Enceladus" is a conceptual record: it tells a fictional story of an enslaved martian boy named Stuart Bentham. The record sets the background for the chapters where Stuart decides to flea from Mars in order to pursuit a unknown, mysterious and legendary colony built on Enceladus moon. So, from Liftoff to the latest Revelations, this album covers this drama. Use your imagination, sit and listen. The Twin Mills started as a solo project by Bruno Gouveia. Enceladus is the very first music record I've ever made - in my spare time - and it took me 18 months and a lot of hard work to be concluded. Everything was composed, recorded, mixed and mastered by me in my home studio in the Northern Area of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
SEMENTE (PROG)
"II"

August 28, 1976 was a milestone in the lives of four Cariocas, who lived among classes, girls, beaches and a common passion: music. On that day, Mário Caldas and the brothers Alexandre and Pedro Kosinski, who had played together for some time, took the first sound with Sérgio Benchimol and that alchemy created a union that was much more than sonorous. In those times of progressive rock and heavy metal, from Yes to Uriah Heep, from Tangerine Dream to Black Sabbath, from Deep Purple to Pink Floyd, from Genesis to The Doors, the four guys embarked on a journey that neither time nor distance Have finally succeeded to this day. Despite living in Brasilia since 1982, Pedro stayed close to everyone, who invariably marked jam sessions every time he came to Rio de Janeiro.
BIKE
"Em Busca Da Viagem Eterna"

The Brazilian band Bike knows about the road: through the 50 cities of 15 states in Brazil where they has passed, between large festivals and concerts in small houses, much has happened. A growing audience was forming with enthusiasm as the group caught the attention of national and international media - crossing the hemisphere and joining t30th Century Records label, from North American producer Danger Mouse. Fearless of what the ways of life can offer and guided by a sense of collectivity, the band rides hard on the release of of their Eternal Journey with the album "Em Busca da Viagem Eterna". It is the moment to go further, the search for the trip that lasts an eternity. Of course the tracks were recorded between trips and the lyrics accompanied these transitions through the states of their country, as we can feel in songs like "Enigma dos 12 sapos"...
MACHINES DREAM
"Black Science"

Machines Dream began as five guys getting together a few times a week to jam, to improvise and follow their hearts musically. Those jams and ideas resulted in songs, which led to recording and ? in March 2012 ? the self-titled debut was released. The album is a collection of progressive rock songs with a scope both atmospheric and cinematic that embraces tales of mental illness, alienation, communication and the need to find safe haven in a destructive world. It's easy to see the lineage of Machines Dream. The members listened to groups like Pink Floyd, Genesis, Marillion, King Crimson, Porcupine Tree and Tool and those influences are recognizably referenced in their own music. But here's the thing that makes them different ? the reward for being in Machines Dream remains simply getting together and making music in a rehearsal studio.
BAD DREAMS
"Chrysalis"

It's been a very busy year at the Bad Dreams camp and we have decided to harness the momentum and use all our energies into making a killer new record! We have teamed up with PledgeMusic to be able to bring our project from inception to completion with the help of those who really matter: you, OUR FANS. It is with only with your support that we will be able to see this through. Our new album Chrysalis will see the light of day next November 2017, and we are asking you to step in and join us to make that dream a reality. This is where you can pre-order the new record, plus a variety of other exclusive items we wanted to include, making the album buying process even more interesting. But we didn't stop there: we decided to also throw in our first ever live release in the form of a Limited Box-Set including a Blu Ray and a DVD of our concert during Cruise to the Edge last February. Yeah, we went all out.
QUARTO VUOTO
"Illusioni"

Quarto Vuoto is a treviso music group that today concretizes its research and artistic expression by composing instrumental music. At the beginning of 2014, the band publishes with the singer and violinist Federico Lorenzon the same EP self-produced "Quarto Vuoto" receiving excellent reviews from critics in both Italian and international. Continuing with growing passion for the journey undertaken, in June 2017 Quarto Vuoto will release "Illusions", a concept distributed by Lizard Records. Quarto Vuoto's music is born from a modern contextualization of progressive thinking. It is not a race for musical innovation. Nor is it a comfortable alliance with the consolation of playing a musical genre as complete as it is now sedimented in history.
VIOLENT ATTITUDE IF NOTICED
"Ourselves and Otherwise"

Formed in 2008 in Saõ Paulo, Brazil, Violent Attitude If Noticed (or simply V.A.I.N.) have been working their way through the music scene playing gigs and spreading the word. The musical background of the band is based upon members's personal taste and they vary a lot. It is possible to identify influences of jazz, bossa nova, blues, post punk, new wave, art rock, electro, hard rock and progressive rock. All these elements summed together result in V.A.I.N.'s music. Textures, layers, noisy backgrounds, ambient landscapes, drum machines, acoustic guitars, heavy distorted and clean guitars are some of the tools used to develop its musicality. It's not uncommon to hear quiet and mellow sounds changing into what may appear to be a sudden nightmare. V.A.I.N. have produced and released EPs and full length albums without any label help but on the other hand, always counting on some well known professionals to make it happen and therefore names like Neil Whitman, Erik Muller Thurm, Jon Astley and Will Geraldo are commonly involved with the releases. The rather solid line up brings Alessandro Queler, Guilherme Saba and Will Geraldo and bands like Death By Visitation Of God, The Opposite Of Hate and Test Record Stereo are all in V.A.I.N.s genealogical tree.
LAZARUS TAXON
"The Dragonfly Effect"

Lazarus Taxon is a Brazilian rock band from São Paulo, formed in 2013. The band consists of old friends Paulo Ghizzi (lead vocals, piano, keyboards), Paulo Almeida (guitar, vocals), Gus Duarte (bass, vocals) and Sandro Muniz (drums, percussion). The members of Lazarus Taxon have been playing in separate bands since the end of the 1990s. When Almeida and Ghizzi decided to start a new and different band, they quickly completed the line up by inviting their mates Gus Duarte and Sandro Muniz. Lazarus Taxon?s music currently mixes sounds from diverses genres such as classic rock, progressive, hard rock, new wave and many others. The band is heavily influenced by Pink Floyd, Marillion, Queen, Duran Duran, Rush, The Cult, Muse, among others. In the second half of 2014, the first single of the band, "blue Kind" was released. The song is a kind of tribute to the sea and the whales, with lyrics rising awareness to the preservation of the oceans and the marine life.
PENDELIRIUM
"Atlas"

Pendelirium comes from Oslo, Norway. Pendelirium was formed back in 2008 by siblings Kristian and Katrine Amlie. Both had previously had music as a hobby for a while, and after having worked together on the single "Saved" they decided to form the band in order to start a more ambitious musical collaboration. In 2011 the band's second single "Windflower" was released, and their first studio album "Atlas" was released in July 2017. Atlas is Pendelirium's debut album, released in July 2017 after a long production phase. It consists of 8 songs that vary in style and atmosphere, but that all share the same theme reflected in the album's title. The beautiful charcoal artwork was made by the very talented artist Christian Asbjørn Voss.
CIRKUS IV
"The Blue Star"

Formed from the ashes of bands Moonhead and Lucas Tyson, the group's high standard of musicianship was well known in their native north-east where they attracte...d much attention and had a devoted following. It was felt that the quintet could achieve success on a national scale, provided management handled matters properly and they got the right breaks. In 1973 they recorded their debut album "Cirkus One" at Sound Associates/Emison & Air Studios and just 1000 copies were pressed up. It is widely regarded by many collectors today as the most musically accomplished private pressing of its kind to emerge out of the UK's then burgeoning progressive music scene, influenced by King Crimson and Yes. When in 1975 lead vocalist Paul Robson left the group, his replacement was Alan Roadhouse (ex Halfbreed) who also played the saxophone.
TEMPLE OF SWITCHES
"Helium Parade"

Temple of Switches is a band from the Central Coast of California. The core members, Kevin McConnell (keys and vocals), Jay Heffner(drums) and Mike Monda (guitar and backing vocals) have known each other for decades and had played music together in "Jam" bands back in the late 70's and early 80's. The three re-united in mid-2012 to create what is now Temple of Switches. The music they write is complex, heavy, powerful and dramatic, in the tradition of the great bands of the late seventies and early eighties such as Pink Floyd, Rush and Kansas. The two primary writers Kevin McConnell and Mike Monda are on opposite sides of the fence when it comes to their approach to music. Mike lurks the dark and dissonant and would rather not play at all than compromise. Kevin on the other hand is perfectly at home in the pop genre with a desire to appeal to the millions.
SIDEWAYS
"Into Balance"

The symphonic rock band Sideways (from Holland) proudly presents her new CD "Fate". This CD contains 7 strong songs, which all differ, but are recognizably Sideways. Since 2003 Sideways has been writing her own material. In 2006 they recorded the CD "?.and there is light". This album was enthusiastically received by both public and press. The American site Proggnosis wrote:"....and there is light is a very good Neo Prog album, one of the best I have heard in quite a while". From the Netherlands en Germany came positive reviews as well, in which the style is compared to that of Marillion. Sideways as sympho-rockband is complete with vocals, guitar, keys, bass and drums. This means atmospheric carpets, pumping rhythms, heart pouring strings and a melodramatic story. The songs vary from simple to complex, but always put melody, atmosphere and emotion at the centre.
UNREAL CITY
"Frammenti Notturni"

Two years only after "Il paese del tramonto", Unreal City return with a new work, "Frammenti notturni". If the two previous albums (the debut album "La crudeltà di aprile" was released in 2013) contributed to spread the band's name all around the international progressive scene, thanks to concerts played in Europe and overseas at the Canadian Terra Incognita festival, this third chapter is destined to consolidate their status as one of the of the most important names in the Italian prog-rock panorama. The current line-up includes Emanuele Tarasconi, the music and lyrics composer, on keyboards and vocals, Francesca Zanetta on guitar, Dario Pessina on bass guitar and the new drummer Marco Garbin. "Frammenti notturni", which was recorded at the beginning of 2017 at the renowned Studio 2 in Padua, sees the participation of guests Matteo Bertani on violin and Camilla Pozzi on vocals..
KAIPA
"Children of the Sounds"

Legendary Swedish progressive rockers Kaipa have announced the release of their new studio album "Children of the Sounds" for 22nd September 2017. The result is as colourful musically and lyrically as Kaipa devotees will expect from the band?s rich discography dating back to the debut opus released in 1975. Formed in 1973, Kaipa never shied away from experimentation, embracing fresh elements and sounds manifesting especially on the albums released in the 2000?s. "Children Of The Sounds" is no exception, the album burns with creative fervour and spirit most vividly displayed on the title track, the 17 minutes long "On The Edge Of New Horizons" or closing track "What's Behind The Fields". It embodies a powerful, positive energy and artistic brilliance that is irresistible and true to the genre's very essence.
DRIFTING SUN
"Twilight"

Drifting Sun comes to Chesham, UK. Drifting Sun are a UK-based Progressive Rock studio project which dates back to the early 90's when Keyboardist/Composer Pat Sanders left his native France to relocate to the UK. Pat had already composed some early material for the project, and joined forces with American Vocalist/Lyricist Rafe Pomeroy. Together, they crafted some of the songs that are part of Drifting Sun's first album. In 1994, they cut four numbers in a London Studio. The recording was sent to French Progressive Rock label Muséa while Pat was touring in Canada with another band. The demo received a positive response from Muséa, and a distribution deal with their parent Hard Rock label Brennus led to the making of Drifting Sun's eponymous debut CD, released in December 1996 to positive reviews from across the globe.
DISCIPLINE
"Captives of the Wine Dark Sea"

Discipline has performed and recorded together since 1987, and remains one of the top bands in the American progressive rock scene. The band's current lineup, including drummer Paul Dzendzel, bassist Mathew Kennedy, lead guitarist Chris Herin (Tiles), and vocalist/keyboardist Matthew Parmenter, worked with veteran music producer Terry Brown (Rush, Fate's Warning) for the mixing of their newest opus, Captives Of The Wine Dark Sea, which Parmenter describes as, "an escape to ameliorate the workaday world." Discipline has appeared at numerous progressive rock festivals In 2012 the band appeared at RoSfest, the Rites Of Spring progressive rock festival in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. That performance can be viewed as an Amazon Instant video. The band has also performed at NEARfest (Northeast Art Rock Festival),
THE TANGENT
"The Slow Rust of Forgotten Machinery"

The Tangent, the progressive rock group led by Andy Tillison, have announced the release of the first new music since 2015. Their new ninth studio album "The Slow Rust of Forgotten Machinery" is set for release on July 21st, 2017. The line-up for this album once again features Tillison on keyboards, vocals (and for the first time on a Tangent record - drums), Jonas Reingold on bass, Luke Machin on guitars and vocals, and Theo Travis on sax and flutes plus new member Marie-Eve de Gaultier on keys and vocals. There are also guest appearances from author/playwright and Chumbawamba founder Boff Whalley on vocals, and upcoming DJ/producer Matt Farrow. Band leader Andy Tillison had this to say: "Roger Waters did prove the ability of Progressive Music to act as a vehicle to communicate ideas about the current world scene.
ALQUIN
"One More Night"

A few students in Delft start a group in 1968. It is called Threshold Fear and they mainly play rhytmn and blues. In 1970 the band members are: Hein Mars (bass, vocals), Job Tarenskeen (vocal, sax, percussion), Ronald Ottenhof (sax, flute), Ferdinand Bakker (guitar, vocals, keyboards), Dick Franssen (keyboards) and Bart Terlaak (drums). A single is released on Negram: Sally Saddlepain/Thank me not, the track was produced by Peter Vink who later on would form Finch At the end of 1971 the group changes the drummer:Terlaak goes and Paul Weststrate comes. In January 1972 they perform in Paradiso for the first time, under their old name. Shortly thereafter (February 1972) the group changes its name to Alquin, after the student society and rehearsal room Alcuin.Due to their growing reputation, May 1972 a record deal with Polydor is closed for 2 albums and 4 singles, and they record their debut album Marks, produced by Hans van Oosterhout.
MAGIA NERA
"L'ultima danza di Ophelia"

Magia Nera was founded in the late 60's around La Spezia: the band shows since the beginning a clear inspiration dark progressive rock. The original line-up includes musicians from different local bands: the first nucleus of the group was called La Nuova Esperienza, says Bruno Cencetti, and besides me on guitar there were Andrea Bottazzi on bass and Piero Figoli on drums, who soon abandoned the group. It was he, really big fan of alchemy and esoteric cultures, to coin the final name of the group. In 1969 kicks off the adventure of Magia Nera. The years of the economic boom, says Emilio Farro, were the decade dominated by the beat. When the band was born that cycle was closing, and the sounds were taking a completely different direction.
MASHEEN MESSIAH
"For the Light Unseen"

Shortly thereafter, started playing original material and had a live debut in 2005, acquiring fair reputation for their melodic materials with dramatic "prog" touch and for their energetic live performances as well. First of all, we have changed our band name to "Masheen Messiah" as of today, Aug 1st, 2016. Actually pronunciation-wise it has no difference but multiple benefits are expected from this change of the spelling. It might look a little strange for those who have known us as "MACHINE MESSIAH" for a long time but we have decided to make this new step and your continuous support will be really appreciated.
MONNALISA
In Principio

After ten years of history, Monnalisa comes to the record debut, with an album that is a synthesis between the Italian PGM Prog Rock and Bronze Ballet and the emphasis of Spock's Beard and Neal Morse Band. There are no metal prog ideas that refer to Dream Theater and Pain of Salvation. Beautiful Italian texts accompany a gorgeous and magniloquent atmosphere. A classic gem of modern and modern design.
SOUL ENEMA
"Of Clans and Clones and Clowns"

It took a lot of time and effort to create "Of Clans and Clones and Clowns", and the final result brings the feeling of a real accomplishment. It was a long, complicated process, constantly laden with a myriad of good reasons to give up or compromise. It probably couldn't be any different, as our goal was a mature, well-produced statement, consistent in quality throughout, and at the same time versatile enough in its various moods, styles and approaches. A creative and diverse Rock/Metal album, exploring vast melodic and rhythmic territories - from ABBA to Zappa, from King Crimson to King Diamond, between East and West and way beyond - in true progressive fashion. Like any reflection of the world we live in, it takes a wild ride over a wide emotional spectrum: sad, funny, perfectly sane, totally insane, very direct, quite obscure, and everything in between.
