ANUBIS SPIRE
"Between The Two Eternities"

Anubis Spire was formed in 1998 and in the decade since has released three critically acclaimed albums: Old Lions (in the world of snarling sheep), Back To Abydos and Children Of A Foreign Faith. All are available at CDBaby.com and hundreds of other online and retail stores, as well as digitally in every major digital music service in existence. Featuring a cast of special guests that includes Saqqara Record's Neil Henderson, Mike Ward of Temporary Power, Marlon Kempmann of Doctor Memory, the ever-shadowy and elusive JP Macgregor among others, Anubis Spire have fashioned an album that will need more than a few listens to sink in but once it does, if you're like me, you'll have a hard time getting it out of your head.
FREQUENCY DRIFT
"Last"

Formed in Bayreuth, Germany by classically trained keyboard player and multi- instrumentalist Andreas Hack, the band released their debut, Personal Effects Pt. 1, in 2008 via Musea. The conceptual work about the tragic story of two sisters in a futuristic setting was inspired by films like Bladerunner and Ghost in a Shell. The follow-up album, Personal Effects Pt. 2 was released by Cyclops in 2009 and once more showcased Frequency Drift?s talent for powerful, soulful melodies and atmosphere. 19 February 2016 will see the release of their 6th album Last. Stranger and darker than its predecessors, yet still highly melodic, with stunning artwork and mournful lyrics, it is Frequency Drift's most cohesive and cinematic work so far.
TRETTIOÅRIGA KRIGET
"Seaside Air"

Trettioåriga Kriget (Thirty Years War) was formed in 1970 in Saltsjöbaden, a seaside resort southeast of Stockholm. They were at the time all around seventeen and still in high school. The schools mainhall was in the beginning used as the rehearsalroom. This first lineup of the band was a sixpiece with two drummers! It included Stefan Fredin- bass guitar, vocals, Pocke Öhrström - guitar, vocals, Dag Lundquist - drums, Olle Thörnvall - harmonica, guitar, Dag Kronlund - piano and Johan Gullberg- drums. In 1971 Pocke, Johan and Dag K. left and Robert joined on vocals and guitar. In 1972 Olle quit playing harmonica to concentrate on the lyrics, leaving the band to concist only of Stefan, Dag and Robert. They decided they needed a good
guitarplayer and started to audition some guitarists. Through these auditions they found Christer who joined the band in summer 1972. The band rehearsed intensively for a year and a half and developed a style of their own quite unlike the main trend in Swedish rock during the Seventies... 2013 started with a show in Tokyo, Japan in January. It will be followed by an appearance at the Melloboat cruise Stockholm-Riga together with among others Opeth, Änglagård, Devin Townsend.
AMON RA
"We Never Said Good-Bye"

After 17 years Amon Ra is Back. Lo and behold, 17 years ago Amon Ra released their debut album "Precarious Balance", receiving a warm welcome from rock magazines around the globe. The album eventually went on to become a highly praised insider tip in prog circles, pulling in fans of Rush or Dream Theater as well as fans of the early Elton John. In the wake of its release, the band joined the German leg of Saga's world tour alongside being booked for shows as guests for main acts like Jethro Tull. In spite of being co-produced by a member of a famous progressive rock band, the follow-up album went down in the flames of a business fiasco. A fate the band shares with so many others, leading to the discontinuation of all live and studio activities. "We Never Said Good-bye" is an ironic take on the band's history, and a tour de force comprising of 12 songs from the German American band.
INVERNALIA
"s/t"

Invernalia is a new project from Buenos Aires, from the creative mind of Aldo Pinelli, also leader of the Argentinian band Habitat and author of three solo albums. Now Invernalia come with more instrumental parts, with different atmospheres that can invoke the first Genesis, Yes and Le Orme of guitar period. The album is full of sweet melodies, sometimes melancholic, sometimes epic, from seventies style to neo-prog, from baroque textures and rhytmic parts to evocative ambient sounds. Invernalia are Aldo Pinelli (guitar, bass, keyboards, voice), Mario Pugliese (drums), Paula Dolcera (flute), Sebastian Calise (violin), Eli Minervini (piano), Roberto Sambrizzi (percussions, drums on La Batalla de los cinco ejercitos", inspired by "The Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkien). A new magical moment for south-american progressive rock".
LUCIFER'S FRIEND
Live @ Sweden Rock 2015

Rock legends Lucifer?s Friend reformed in 2015, some 20 years after they were last together. Live @ Sweden Rock 2015 captures the band's performance on the 4 Sound Stage on Friday 5th June 2015 as the Headline act. The set list includes the band's greatest hits from the 1970s plus songs from the recently released "Awakening" title. Lucifer's Friend formed in 1970 with their influential and groundbreaking self-titled album, famous album among connoisseurs of 70's hard rock. Its heavy and majestic overtones made it a pioneer release of progressive rock genre. The group went on to release six albums in that decade. In 1976 Lucifer's Friend suffered a hard blow when British vocalist John Lawton jumped ship for none other than Uriah Heep. The band broke up in 1982 and briefly reformed in 1994 for their ninth album "Sumo Grip". Now they're back, after 20 years, literally by the fans' request? "This being only the second live concert since our reformation, we were all of course a bit nervous". However the crowd made us more than welcome and after the first few notes, the adrenalin kicked in and we were up and running.
ALMS
"An Irosmic Tragedy"

"An Irosmic Tragedy", Alms' second album, is an epic Rock symphony about Life divided in three long suites, corresponding to each one of its phases: childhood, adulthood and elderhood. Complex and eclectic, Alms mixes different styles in his music, from Classical to Heavy Metal, as is often the case in Progressive Rock. Thick instrumentation, evoking sounds, enveloping atmospheres, powerful melodies and poetic lyrics make the listening of this album a really enjoyable journey through Life.
MARTIGAN
"Distant Monsters"

Martigan was founded in March 1994 by the keyboarder Oliver Rebhan. He used his contacts in the local music-scene to unite different musicians in a new band. Rather than aiming at any commercial success the members of the band chose to write and perform music that meets their personal preferences. The work of 2 weeks composing together with Kai Marckwordt, Juergen Edlinger, Axel Schuetze and Alex Bisch can definitely be named as "Progressive Rock". The first track "Painter" was born. In the end of 1994 they recorded their first demo CD using two DAT recorders. This recording, produced during only two weekends, served as master-tape for Martigan's first album Stolzenbach.
ANURYZM
"All Is Not For All"

The album cover displays the "Worm" as a younger man in his early 30s and starting out in his despicable exploits trying to work his way to the top. In this image, he leaves his destructive habitat in search of new places to devastate, but inevitably enters into unchartered territories only to run into trouble as he comes face to face with the Rhino, which in this case represents purity. The Rhino is both tangible and ethereal and could represent a number of spiritual forces to a large number of people due to his majesty and ancient wisdom. Due to the relative inexperience of the Worm, he has no option but to turn away to escape and maybe try again in future. Rhinos are very peaceful when at ease but yet very aggressive and powerful when provoked. The Worm must learn to tame the beast before he can even attempt to overrun it.
EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY
"The Wilderness"

In February 1999, three longtime friends from West Texas went to a pizza place in Austin, Texas, for a prearranged meeting with a young man from Illinois. The Illinoisan had just moved to Austin, and he had put up a flyer that caught the interest of the others. They ate pizza and discussed movies and arcana. They also decided to meet the next day with their various instruments (two guitars, bass, and drums). This happened, and over the coming months they picked a band name, then picked a better band name, then wrote and recorded an album. That album, called How Strange, Innocence, was largely out of tune, but the band members didn't really notice at the time. They optimistically printed 300 copies, and gave most of them away. It turned out they really liked playing together, so they kept doing so. A friend of theirs sent a recording of one of their live shows to a record label in Baltimore, and that label offered to put out albums for the band. The band agreed.
YUKA & CHRONOSHIP
"The 3rd Planetary Chronicles"

Yuka & Chronoship is a Japanese progressive rock band formed in 2009 by keyboardist/ vocalist/ composer Yuka Funakoshi one of the few prog-rock artists in the world along with Japan's three leading studio musicians: bassist Shun Taguchi, guitarist Takashi Miyazawa, and drummer Ikko Tanaka. Highly reminiscent of late 70s progressive rock, the sound of Yuka & Chronoship is reputed for its philosophical depth, lyrical brilliance, and technical virtuosity. Don't miss the chance to explore the musical microcosm of Yuka & Chronoship!
SILVER HUNTER
"Chapter 1: Mad Moonlighters"

After appearing in the ProgYes Festival in 2012, Singer/Songwriter Tim Hunter and Silver Lining's vocalist Thierry Sportouche decided to start an Anglo/French music project called Silver Hunter, to focus on 1970s "prog" influenced pop and rock. The intention is to blend two styles: melodic accessible music with progressive, theatrical rock. April 2015: Silver Hunter's first mini-album is out! It was recorded at the Smokehouse Studios, Wapping, London, Tim's Northern Soundscapes studios in Yorkshire and Thierry's Florrow studio in Lyon. Thierry Sportouche, haunted by the esoteric progressive meanderings, invented premonitory dreams, daring musical experiences in the heart of fantasy. Sportouche is the master of his future.
BILLY SHERWOOD
"Citizen"

Sherwood comes from a musical family which includes his father Bobby, who was a big band leader, his mother Phyllis, a singer and drummer, and brother Michael, a keyboardist and singer. His godfather is the late Milton Berle. Billy Sherwood's music career started when he joined a band formed by Michael. Called Lodgic, Billy played bass and sung while Michael played keyboards and sang back up. Lodgic also included Guy Allison on keyboards, Jimmy Haun on guitar and Gary Starns on drums. They eventually moved the band to Los Angeles in 1980. After many years of trying to get things together, they recorded their debut album Nomadic Sands, released in 1985. Lodgic eventually broke up, and Billy Sherwood put together a new band with Guy Allison. They recruited guitarist Bruce Gowdy and drummer Mark T. Williams to form World Trade. They recorded their self-titled debut in 1989, with Sherwood taking on the roles of engineer, mixer, and producer again, along with his band duties as bassist and lead singer.
URIAH HEEP
"Totally Driven"

Legendary band Uriah Heep is pleased to announce the forthcoming re-release of a previously released obscure re-records anthology, now known as Totally Driven. Totally Driven is housed in a 6 panel digi-pack with new custom artwork and features 27 re-records made in 2001. This release is the first on the band's own Uriah Heep Records and will be supported by a full worldwide marketing campaign. Of the release, Mick Box said The 'Totally Driven' recordings were made while we were in preparation for the "Acoustically Driven" and "Electrically Driven" concerts. Previously these 2001 recordings were released under the confusing name "Remasters", but that title went out of print very quickly.  This re-release has had the band's full input, including in its re-branding as "Totally Driven" and will be the very first release on their own Uriah Heep Records.
LE FOLLI ARIE
"Le Folli Arie"

Le Folli Arie become a reality in 2012. The band is made of four musicians living in Milan that have a huge live experience. They all have worked in various musical projects and share a common love for music from the 70's . They have also been influenced by grunge, pop, latin, funk, jazz, heavy metal. The clash and melt of all these musical influences gave birth to Le Folli Arie's unique style...
ARLON
"Mimetic Desires" 

The music played by the band can be defined as progressive rock in a broad sense. Having been introduced in several songs ("Lies", "On the Edge"), the saxophone is a sui generis binder and creates a completely different atmosphere, not changing their character at the same time. A warm voice of the lead singer complements the whole, and combined with the rough, progressive sounds gives an interesting final effect. Arlon's lyrics are a simple diagnosis of reality. They are about the dreams and helplessness of a man fighting an everlasting battle for happiness. They condemn stupidity, ask many questions and invite to looking for answers to them. "We do not attempt to change the world, we'd rather change ourselves", the band members say.
MAGMA
"Köhnzert Zünd Box Set - 12-CD Live Set"

You have to see Magma live at least once in your life! For Magma, live performance is essential. Live performance allows "and forgives" no mistakes. You give your all, all at once. You are on a tightrope, with no safety net. It is too late for thought. The body, the hands and the instinct speak first; the fruit of reflection. This planned spontaneity, these raw sounds, this savage energy at concerts make live performance a wonderful experience. Magma has joined up with Jazz Village to celebrate its 45th anniversary with an impressive series of new and classic releases. A series of new and classic Magma titles has been scheduled for release every month from September 2014 to November 2015. A legendary French group if ever there was one, Magma has continued to influence the course of contemporary music since their debut in 1969. Combining the energy of rock and the ecstasy of jazz, as well as numerous classical influences from Béla Bartók to Carl Orff to the Viennese school, brick by brick Magma has built a unique musical monument that is destined to be a worldwide beacon, as long recognized by their large and devoted following.
THE PYRAMIDIS PROJECT
"Emotional Distances"

The Pyramidis Project sets new music standards. The mastermind behind The Pyramidis Project is Mario Buchinger (f.k.a. Mario Kuduz), who has been actively dealing with music as musician and producer for more than 20 years. Even though radio DJs all over the world have categorised the sound by The Pyramidis Project as Progressive Rock, the newly created genre is named "Soundscaping" as the songs of The Pyramidis Project do not fit into existing patterns of music genres. It combines synthetic sounds layers with other musical elements like guitars, vocals, wind instruments and others and it includes also many influences from other genres such as Rock, Lounge or Jazz. The result is something which can be expressed as "Soundscapes" originating from the word "Landscapes".
EDUARDO AGUILLAR
"A Grande Galeria"

Eduardo Aguillar - Musician since childhood and registered in the Order of the Musicians of Brazil as a classical musician in the early 80s, he studied music theory and classical acoustic guitar at the Music School Villa-Lobos and Composition and Conducting at the University Estacio de Sá. Produces instrumental music with progressive influences, with the characteristic compose, arrange and execute all instruments. Recently had special broadcast in Greece, Canada and Brazil. Specialized radios in Brasil, Argentina, United States, Italy e UK have their music programming. Release two albums in 2015: "Plano Sequência", recorded in 1992, remastered and with new cover; and a second, as yet untitled, with newer songs. Eduardo Aguillar follows in order to produce soundtracks for advertising, movie and television. Come the year 2012 and Eduardo Aguillar mounts a new studio (named Laboratório Pedra Branca).

GIZMO
"Marlowe's Children - part 1 The Innocence"

It was 1975 and prog-rock was all the rage. David Radford, a young singer-songwriter from Canterbury had just secured a recording contract with President Records. The label, run by father and son team Ed* and David Kassner, were impressed by Radford's writing talent after hearing a demo-tape recorded at the original Oakwood Studios in 1974. President wanted a single released as quickly as possible and invited Radford's band Gizmo up to Regent Sound Studio in London's Tin Pan Alley (Denmark Street) to record seven of his songs. The band that recorded that first single and other unreleased tracks comprised: David Radford - 12 string guitar and vocals, Graeme Quinton-Jones - Keyboards and guitar, Mick Curd - Guitar, David Jones - Keyboards, Martin Judd - Bass guitar and David Smith - Drums. It is amazing how both Dave and Martin were able to write and record the songs for this album, when they both had such life threatening conditions.
TIME HORIZON
"Living Water"

The long awaited debut release from the Band Time Horizon. The Music of Time Horizon is built around catchy melodies and supported by driving guitars, thick symphonic keyboards and rich vocal harmonies. A diverse influence of bands can be heard on the album from the Progressive Rock genre like Kansas, Styx, Pink Floyd and Yes as well as more main stream rock as Toto and Journey. It is been described as "accesible" Progressive rock for the average listener. Each song has a distinct flavor of musical styles yet the album still maintains an identifiable sound.
ARCADE MESSIAH
"Arcade Messiah II"

John Bassett (the singer, songwriter and producer of UK Progressive Rock Band KingBathmat) has announced the forthcoming release of Ar5cade Messiah II. Arcade Messiah II builds upon the elements of the first release with the genre blending of Metal, Stoner, Doom, Prog, Math rock, and ambient post rock continuing into an ever increasing dynamic storm of controlled chaos. John Bassett: "after the surprise success of last year's original Arcade Messiah album and after receiving feedback from fans of that album I decided to make a sequel, a continuation of that album, that is hopefully bigger, better, more refined and more dramatic, but which didn't lose the vibe and atmosphere that was created on the original Album".
LANDSKAP
"II"

London based heavy rock project mainly influenced by late 60's and early 70's psychedelic rock featuring George Pan (Father Sun, Dead Man's Band), Frederic Caure (SerpentCult, Thee Plague Of Gentlemen), Paul Westwood (Fen, Skaldic Curse), Kostas Panagiotou (Pantheist) and Jake Harding (Dead Existence, The Death Letter). Landskap is West Flemish for landscape, which is where Frederic Caure originates from.
VIII STRADA
"Babylon"

In December 2008 "The Legend of the big door" signed a remarkable debut on the international progressive-rock world revealing themselves as one of the most interesting and original newcomer. A long tour often together with the great Patrizio Fariselli (Area) has followed. Now they return with a new album, "Babylon", a concept where all the songs, despite having their own autonomy, are inter-connected. Even the instrumental songs, as ouverture, preludes and fughe, have their own meaning through the story itself. This is an album full of different "paths" of shifting colors, with constant changes of cadence and mood, in an ideal travel among struggling melodies, startling rhythmic bridges and a reckless sound.
