is a Turkish rock band who are achieving worldwide success with their psychedelic
and progressive rock music. Their work is marked by the use of Shamanic
lyrics, epic story lines , innovative album art, and spiritual ambience
live shows. Nemrud is one of the most noteworthy debuts of rock music in
Turkey. Despite their nationality, the band is not generally considered
Pop-rock because of their sound, which has much more in common with Progressive
Rock groups such as Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Eloy, Camel and Yes. Founded
in 2008 by guitarist and vocalist Mert Göçay. The First line-up
of the band consisted of non musicians Mert Göçay, Aycan Sari,
Harun Sönmez, Adil Giyici and Alpaslan Altun. The band has endured
several line-up changes, with Mert Göçay and Aycan Sari being
consistent members of the group. Mert Topel joined the band after the record
their successful debut album Journey of The Shaman.
to public demand, there was a second part to the tour in 1995, and the
second part of "Chronicles". was released that year as well. "What more
is to come" asked Frank Bornemann? The answer was "Ocean 2". This ambitious
project also owed itself to the fan club, which had been set up for the
tour of '94. At that time, there was simply no way of finishing Eloy off.
The song writing and recording went on for a long time. In 1998 the 16th
studio album eventually saw the light of day. Positive reactions everywhere
sent the band on another tour. Unfortunately, this was to be the last sign
of life from Germany's most successful progressive rock band for a long
time. In 2003, EMI released "Timeless Passages", the ultimate song collection
on two CDs. The product was graced with elaborate cover artwork, strongly
suggestive of the band's heyday. Shortly afterwards, the last newly mastered
old EMI studio albums hit the market. The back catalogue sold in respectable
quantities, proving the interest of the fans was still alive. And so the
people at Frank's label, Artist Station, which he founded together with
Martin Kleemann, had to figure out a way of meeting expectations. In 2009,
Eloy are celebrating their 40th anniversary. "The Legacy Box" DVD-set comprises
a documentary on the history of the band, enriched with video clips, concert
footage and TV appearances of the band. Eloy is back!
is a German group that evolved out of a mid 90s outfit called ZWEEBACK.
The group's name translates to "House of Dreams" and their music combines
hard rock with a healthy helping of atmospherics. While the style looks
back to many German bands of the 70s and 80s, their use of angular melodies
and their native tongue draws valid comparisons to one in particular, Anyone's
Daughter. Novalis and Grobschnitt might be other reference points, although
Traumhaus is somewhat more rhythmic. The band consisted of Frank Woidich
- Organ, Synthesizer, Backing Vocals, Bernhard Selbach - Guitars, Backing
Vocals, Bass Pedals, Michael Dorniak - Backing Vocals, Bass, Drums, Alexander
Weyland - Vocals, Synthesizer, Piano and Nina Weyland - Guest Vocals.
band breaks the progressive rock scenes, both Italian and European, taking
part in the offical King Crimson tribute album 'The letters: an Italian
unconventional guide to King Crimson', produced in 2005 by Mellow Records
and along with artists like the virtuoso piano-player Stefano Bollani.
Their version of 'The great deceiver' turns out to be greatly appreciated
by the audience and the press. 'Scartomanzia', a five songs EP, is recorded
in the band's own studio in 2006. Thanks to this release, PropheXy places
first in a contest promoted by the 'Acid Jazz' magazine. As a part of the
prize, the song 'Plasticosmic' is then included in the August issue. New
and important opportunities follow, like concerts with Anekdoten, Le Orme,
Sleepy Time Gorilla Museum, Deus Ex Machina, Maschera di Cera, among the
others. After a lot of electric and some acoustic gigs, PropheXy enters
again the studio to produce the new full-length album "Alconauta", a mix
of crazy textures and mad rhythms, highly melodic and psychedelic openings
lead to a new breed of Pro-Aggressive Rock. In the summer of 2013 the band
presents "Improvviso", a live album recorded at San Sebastiano theater.
are an Indonesian space and psychedelic rock band. On November 1995, Iman
Ismar who?s on his first semester majoring in music at Institut Kesenian
Jakarta (IKJ ? Jakarta Institute of The Arts), establish a music group
with I Putu Gede Prawita (Tude) whom is also a music student at IKJ. Then
they named this group ?Fortissimo?. They also ask George who took percussion
as his major to joining them. On May ?96 they add other personnel; they
are Joko Widodo (acoustic guitar) and Leodet (keyboard). By the end of
?96, Fortissimo who played their own instrumental music changed some of
their personnel. Then George replaced by Taufan, and Joko resigned from
the group. With the personnel Iman, Tude, Leodet and Taufan, Fortissimo
changed their name to ?Ouverture?. Almost two years after, on October ?98,
Tude got resigned from the group and was replaced by Ponco Satrio. But,
by the end of November, Ouverture is dismissed.
1973 Live Concert Recording Of Prog Legends Flash Featuring Peter Banks
'Flash ? In Public' To Be Released October 29, 2013. Much to the anticipation
of progressive rock fans worldwide, for the first time, an rare recording
of UK prog group Flash, featuring legendary guitarist Peter Banks, from
January 21, 1973 will be released on CD on October 29, 2013. Titled 'Flash
? In Public', this historic and exciting concert recording features the
original Flash line-up ? Peter Banks, Colin Carter, Ray Bennett and Mike
Hough in rare form live at Kansas City's Cowtown Ballroom. The show was
taped on the very first mobile truck for The Record Plant. Flash were on
the same bill that evening with The Byrds, who would disband after a few
more dates. The shows were all recorded for the Lee Jeans & Cotton
concert series ? the first nationally syndicated rock concert series!
Storm Chronicles are a modern, adult album alternative rock music project
with progressive rock influences based in the U.S. Pacific Northwest. The
music has been in development for nearly 20 years, in one form or another.
The duo was established on the vision of David Burr, who founded and developed
the project as the primary vehicle for realizing his musical/lyrical compositions
and ambitions. The Storm Chronicles have accumulated a rather large backlog
of songs and instrumental pieces that will eventually see the light of
day on future albums and EP releases. In 2011, the key challenge was to
decide which of these songs would best represent the body of work as a
whole, to date, for the first release. Once chosen, most of the final songs
would take another 2 years to record and produce (with the exception of
"Run", which Burr had started recording in 2010 while still searching for
a vocalist). The end result was Looking Backward.
Grid is a Swiss and French progressive metal band. All started in 2001,
when Steve Huber, Rémi Poussier and Yves Marguet happened to play
together in Christophe Matthey's metal workshop in the Ecole des technologies
musicales (ETM) of Geneva. The alchemy seemed to work despite their different
musical tastes! At the end of the year, they decide to form the band that
will later be called Time Grid. Steve asks Mathias Reuser, his best friend
with whom he composes since several years, to join the band. The band is
searching for a keyboardist, but after many tries and unsatisfying auditions.
Mathias who is a keyboardist himself, accepts the task in addition to singing.
Between 2001 and 2004, the band composes more or less what will be Time
Grid's first album. The diverse influences of the band, such as : Dream
Theater, Queen, Simon Phillips, Sergeï Rachmaninov, John Williams,
give Time Grid the ability to deliver an unusual progressive metal mixed
with jazz, classical, and pop music.
German rock band, Deafening Opera, was formed in Munich in 2006 by lead
singer Adrian Daleore, guitarists Moritz Kunkel and Thomas Moser, and bassist
Christian Eckstein, and joined by Konrad Gonschorek on drums and Tilman
Espert on the keyboards, who was replaced by Gérald Marie in 2009.
Their first album, Synesteria, released in 2009, falls under the genre
of progressive metal. The precise guitar riffs and powerful rhythms are
delicately balanced by melodious, sometimes melancholic, vocals. This intriguing
combination invites the listener to explore the inner self. The style of
this Munich group passed from metal to progressive rock with the release
of the EP 25.000 Miles (2011). This EP serves as the basis for the new
album Blueprint released in July 2013.
We Changed You"
Angeles, CA - Following in the musical footsteps of progressive giants
such as Yes and Genesis, L.A.-based collective XNA launches their debut
recording, the riveting and ambitious concept album When We Changed You,
available October 22. Founded by vocalist David Hussey of Genesis tribute
band Gabble Ratchet and keyboardist Adam Malin, composer/author of several
solo sci-fi rock operas including "Singularity" and co-founder of Creation
Entertainment, the company responsible for the original Star Trek Convention,
XNA effortlessly traffics in classic prog rock but with a unique, multi-layered,
symphonic sound. The evocative lyrics relay strange cinematic stories steeped
in history, science fiction, and the macabre. Rounding out the band are
drummer Scott Connor of CIRCA: and the Bobby Kimball-fronted Yoso, who
provides the rhythmic backbone for the album, and guitarist Danny Bryle
of Psychle and Low Media High, who furnishes intricate melodies throughout.
Blake is the new project of Paolo Pigni (Mogador, Celtic Harp Orchestra),
produced by Luca Briccola (Mogador, Trewa, Celtic Harp Orchestra), featuring
Rick Wakeman (Yes), Richard Sinclair (Caravan), David Paton (Alan Parson
Project, Camel, Fish), Dave Lawson (Greenslade), Nick Magnus (Steve Hackett),
Amanda Lehmann (Steve Hackett) and Billy Sherwood (Yes, Toto, Circa). If

each individual song, then please go to the following link and you will

to our trip and like lysergic Livingstones, let us guide you in our search
for the source of the cosmic Nile. After an epic sixteen year climb to
the pinnacle of obscurity that we find ourselves at today and with this
much road behind us, even your very own psychedelic savants need the occasional
shot in the arm. To provide a much welcomed transfusion of new blood to
the music placed b efore you, our dysfunctional band of misfits now benefits
from the permanent addition of two new psychonauts on our odyssey through
the shadows. Joining the band on lead guitar and with a penchant for exploratory
space rock soloing that swings from the sublime to the clinically deranged,
Alex "A to the K" Kenny brings a maturity to the strings that belies his
youthful optimism. On melodic keys, production, engineering and all round
egg recording wizardry, Michael "Woody" Woodward has helped the band to
push the sonic envelope in all directions on this album. The contributions
of our newest members remains underpinned by the rock solid rhythm section
of stalwarts Dave Veres and Danny Taylor alongside the unique vocal powerhouse
that is Andy Wrigley. All of this alchemy continues to be orchestrated
by the doggedly determined rhythm guitarist, master tunesmith and founder
member helmsman Frank Flight.
words have granted eternity to Ulysses and his story: is it possible to
tell it with images and sounds...? "v"Ulisse l'Alfiere Nero", the debut
concept-album of Italian band Progenesi, was born with this clear ambition.
There is the experience of the classic 70s prog-rock (ELP, Genesis, Le
Orme, PFM), the research in the psychedelic path of Pink Floyd and Porcupine
Tree's contemporary style, a passion for symphonic music by Beethowen,
the romantic lyricism of Chopin, the compositional ideas of the first '900
(Bartok in particular) up to the sounds of jazz (specifically Coltrane,
Brubeck and Russell). Thus the music of this album has a strong descriptive
and narrative character, which is combined with a set of photographic pictures,
both functional to the portrait of Ulysses in the famous episode of the
is a Mexican Progressive Rock band, arises from the need to transform their
emotions in sounds: truths, lies and fantasies that occupy the space. In
2008 begin creative exploration, inspired by historic progressive groups
as Pink Floyd, Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree and other alternative bands
as Radiohead. In 2010, and with the current lineup: Ana Camelo (vocals

a group gives their band a name, hence to specific genre, it's never at
random. And even when it comes out as part of some sort of "internal vote",
it hides the unconscious reasons that will carry on dreams - and goals
- that will give life to various components. Pandora resorts to mythology,
as it often happens with to those who refers to Progressive music, that
is, to that genre of music that peaked at the turn of the 60's and 70s,
and subsequently decreased in number of enthusiasts, and today was once
again on the increase although just within the genre's group followers.
But the link between the "now" and "then" highlights certain analogies,
certain similarities, which shorten timeframe and turn fresh concepts and
ideas passed down through books, and often used by the people in the form
metaphors. In Greek mythology, the opening of the box given as gift from
Zeus to Pandora caused a spill to the entire world's evil, but initially,
hopes remains on the bottom, bringing back life, which became an essential
element, just as today, to face daily life. Inside Pandora's box though,
there's another kind of hope. Hearty and contagious, because it joins together
the idea of what quality music is for the group and their fans: to bring
back the satisfaction and continuous appreciation of a musical genre which
has grown out to infinite dimensions, as with classical music, jazz, and
blues. Pandora creates music by merging the arts, combining talents in
history and in experience, by engaging and sharing every single step of
the way, presenting one with a layered-complex music product, but not self-congratulatory.
haven't we heard of this band before?" - is a sentence often heard. Fact
is that the quartet consisting of singer Maartje Meessen, guitarist Ingo
Dassen, bassist Dachuan Lu and drummer Ruben Israël took their time
to develop their sound and music. Having played several tours in the UK,
an extensive list of shows and festivals in Belgium and a tour in China,
the band are steadily gaining an international following. The first steps
were taken in 2009 when Lesoir recorded their debut album at Jet Studio
(Brussels, Belgium) with producer Rudy Coclet (Arno, An Pierlé).
The album was released in the summer of 2010, receiving rave reviews from
professionals, critics and various magazines. Debut single 'Dominion' received
airplay on multiple radio stations, including 'Studio Brussel' Belgium's
national station. "Lesoir takes you to an obscure city, where you wouldn't
mind getting lost as an listener. Sometimes loud but never losing the essence
of the song." - 3voor12
amazing Greece Progressive Rock group was formed in Athens in 1997, recording
"In the Gate of Dream" with greek lyrics and the following members: Lena
on vocals, Alix - piano & keys, S. Kontakis - el. & ac. guitar,
Y. Barkoulas - el. & ac. guitar), George F. - drums and finally Hyde
on bass guitar. During the recordings the band translated three songs in
English and sent a tape to Musea. To their astonishment, because they were
a new band and they came from a country without tradition in progressive,
Musea showed interest in their work! So in 1997, La Tulipe Noire released
their first CD titled "In the Gates of Dream". Then Lena left the band
to continue her studies in classical vocals and George F. left the band
due to health problems. They were replaced by Ima on vocals and Nick
Kassavetis on drums. Then, in 2000, La Tulipe Noire's second album
"Shattered Image" was released by Musea. It met a great success around
the world. Hundreds of e-mails were sent...with enthousiastic comments
about the group. Shortly after Y. Bakoulas left the band...replaced by
K. Savvides who started as "guest star" before becoming a regular
member, then the group released "Faded Leaves" in 2002 with great success
around the world.
TEMPIO DELLE CLESSIDRE
is a fancy word, composed by the intersection of words alien and nature:
it contains multiple interpretations that see the protagonist the Nature
as Entity and Spirit. The cover (painted by talented painter Alessandro
Sala) depicts the Nature ripping a curtain (which outlines the theatrical
element of artistic music) and invades the homes and villages pushing towards
the sea and brandishing so surreal moon, trying to recover what you have
been ripped off. In the lyrics is the ambivalence of the word alienanatura,
they tell of how humans often forget the arcane bond with Nature and circles
(mostly in vain) to govern and subdue it, thus alienating it. The Moon
and the Wind are two fundamental elements of the image. The introduction
of the disc is a sort of translation into music of a current of wind that
crosses different corners of the world to reach the minds of those who
play (and listen to), thus providing a key to the entire disk. The voices
are another important element of this second job: the new singer Francesco
Ciapica, offering brand new colors to the musical interpretations and each
member of the group lends his voice to songs and harmonies, the result
of a significant work of composition: Elisa also plays the link between
the feminine spirit and Nature telling the arrival of the night in a musical
poetry dedicated to the moon.
