D PROJECT
"Find Your Sun"

It was in 2006 that the singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist Stéphane Desbiens and author Francis Roy founded D Project. The first album "Shimmering Lights" evoked a mix of different music styles; progressive rock, classical, metal including jazz. Many shows were presented especially with The Flowers King and Arena. Later, in 2008, was the release of the album "Sagarmatha Dilemma", for which the music was inspired by Mount Everest images and its conquest by the climber Maxime Jean. The documentary "Everest" featured music from D Project. This collaboration has led Stéphane and his partners, Mathieu Gosselin (bass) and Jean Gosselin (drums) to perform at Salle Albert-Rousseau of Quebec and in Europe in 2009. D Project always surrounded themselves with prestigious musician and artists such as Tony Levin, Martin Orford, Derek Sherinian and Tomas Bodin.
MALIBRAN
"Straniero: Rare & Unreleased"

The Malibran were formed in Catania, Italy, in the summer of 1987 and immediately began to play pieces of their own composition, in classic Progressive Rock style. At the end of 1988 the line up includes Giuseppe Scaravilli (voice, guitar), Giancarlo Cutulierry Litrico (guitar), Angelo Messina (bass), Alessio Scaravilli (drums) and Benny Torrisi (keyboards). With this formation record five records: The Wood Of Tales (1990), Le Porte Del Silenzio (1993), La Citta 'Sul Lago (1998), In Concerto (2000) and Beyond The Ignoto (2001), the first two for the Roman Pegaso Records, the following ones for the Mellow Records of San Remo. Now they are back with a new release, a big collection of rare and unrealised tracks.
KING CRIMSON
"Meltdown: Live in Mexico"

A 3CD/1Blu-Ray set featuring over three and a half hours of material performed during King Crimson's five night residency at Teatro Metropolitan, Mexico City in July 2017 plus audio extras. The Blu-Ray contains over two hours of multi-camera HD recorded footage, audio soundtrack in 24/48 LPCM, hi-res stereo and 5.1 DTS HD-MA (with "picture off" mode allowing the music to be heard independently in lossless audio). Meltdown includes, for the first time with this line-up, audio recordings of Breathless, Discipline, Moonchild and Tony and Jeremy's nightly Cadenza improvs. Mixed by King Crimson member Bill Rieflin from full multi-track recordings and presented in two mini-vinyl style gatefold packs with booklet - including photos by Tony Levin and sleeve notes - enclosed in an outer slipcase.
GRYPHON
"ReInvention"

Over the years, members of Gryphon have worked with Musica Reservata and the Bootleg Beatles, Paul McCartney and Alan Bleasdale, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Kate Bush, Tanita Tikaram, Loudon Wainwright, John Williams and the other John Williams, Cliff Richard, Brian Ferry, Elvis Costello and Home Service, Hans Zimmer, Max Boyce and Desmond Dekker, David Byrne, the Albion Band, the Royal Choral Society, Long John Baldry and the New Scorpion Band. New recruit and old friend Graham Preskett has played with everyone from Van Morrison to Cher, arranged the strings for Gerry Rafferty's Baker Street, and contributed mandolin to Captain Corelli's Mandolin, tango violin to Moulin Rouge and harmonica to Thelma and Louise. In fact, the list is endless. Now Gryphon is back, reinvented and mixing old and new material.
KARNATAKA
"Secrets Of Angels. Live In Concert"

From powerful to ethereal, breathtaking to haunting, Karnataka's music draws upon many influences from melodic,classic & progressive rock to symphonic cinematic soundscapes. Founded by bassist/composer Ian Jones, the band have released several critically acclaimed albums including The Storm, Delicate Flame Of Desire, Strange Behaviour, The Gathering Light and Secrets of Angels. Winning plaudits from Radio 2's Bob Harris, Karnataka have performed in the UK, USA and Europe alongside prestigious artists such as Robert Plant and Porcupine Tree. Ian is also part of music projects Chasing The Monsoon and Illuminae.
GÖSTA BERLINGS SAGA
"Et Ex"

UNKH
"Innerverse"

How does a mashup of contemporary alternative rock and seventies progressive music sound like? Take the sound of keys of 70's symfo rock, rocking guitars flavored with weird effects, drum loops and samples, give it a solid Rickenbacker base, spice it up with just enough Dutch impertinence and mix it up in a 21st century refined production process. The answer is: Unkh. Unkh consists of four Dutch seasoned musicians who have put this idea into "Traveller". They have already performed this album live at multiple venues in front of bewildered audiences. Think melodic vocals, raw guitars, analog synths, thundering basslines and solid beats. Think Unkh!

The album "Il Mostro di Firenze" is an obscure sound experience, a gloomy three-dimensional journey that will take you into the delirious world of one of the most brutal crimes of Italian news.

IL BACIO DELLA MEDUSA
"Seme"

Contrary to what often happens in the vast progressive rock panorama, crowded by many prolific artists, Il Bacio della Medusa has always taken their right time to release a new album: this time six years have in fact passed from the previous "Deus Lo Vult". Nothing to complain, however, when the wait is rewarded by the high quality of the result. "Seme" is no exception in this sense and, if the wind instrumensts played by Eva Morelli and Simone Cecchini's voice represent elements of continuity with the past, everything else has been completely revolutionized. We are in fact facing the band's most immediate and at the same time more varied record, a blend of hard, folk, jazz and classic rock, typical songwriter's moments and even country and electronic music! If it's true that "prog" means also evolution and mixing between musical genres, we are therefore in the presence of a daring album that, even if considerably deviating from the "classic prog" coordinates, paradoxically represent the most progressive and original release in the entire career of the group!!

Parallel to the music concept, they were very influenced by other artistic movements like surrealism (specially by Tim Burton's work) and other artistic languages such as cinema, painting, literature, dance and performing arts. "Espresso Della Vita: Solare" will be a work that runs away from the conventional, so it ends up being naturally daring and complex. In the song "Hijos de La Tierra" " - focused on the cultivation of love for nature and respect for the Americas - there are participations of seven musicians from four different countries of North and South America - among them that of the singer Cinthia Santibañes do Crisalida. For the recordings of corals and orchestrations that appear throughout the album, there are more than 20 musicians involved!

MARCHESI SCAMORZA
"Gemini"

"Our new album Gemini tells the story of a man who struggles with his many personalities. The schizophrenia of the man is a whirling and moody journey in his inner world, he is overwhelmed by the times he lives in and takes refuge in the memories of his past, he is unable to understand his real nature and tries to cross the mirror that reflects his demons. Themes as the double and the mirror have been explored by Wilde, Poe, Carroll, we're feeling this influence with some D'Annunzio echoes ". Gemini is the third album of Marchesi Scamorza, and it is aconcept album. Since the times of King Crimson, every prog band has tested the experience of a concept but the narration of Gemini takes different paths, to get into the dark and mysterious dynamics of the human mind, a journey into the inner world of the man, with the progressive rock of the young band.
TRAMA
"Oscure Movenze"

Lorenzo and Paolo,respective guitar and drums players, founded Trama in 1995. The other arrives are Annalisa, at the voice, Luca at the keyboards and Gabriele at the bass.

PROJECT: PATCHWORK
"Re|Flection"

As the name puts out, Project: Patchwork is not a classic band with a fixed line-up. Basically there are only two persons, Peter Koll (the body) and Gerd Albers (the brain), who formed Project: Patchwork. Furthermore there are many musicians and other involved persons, who came in for each production, so the project's face is constantly changing. The most important personalities of the first two albums – beside the musicians – should be named and honored musicians. Re|Flection deals with personal experiences I've made in my life on the one hand, but on the other hand also with relevant topics in our today's society. A personal reflection, without pointing a critical finger or an absolute claim to truth. Musically, Re|Flection is a mixture of progressive and classic rock elements, paired with some folky and often acoustically parts.

DESERT WIZARDS
"Beyond The Gates Of The Cosmic Kingdom"

Desert Wizards begin playing in March 2007 when four friends strongly moved by 70’ hard rock and psychedelic music, decide to set up a band...

The demo contains 5 tracks of pure heavy psychedelic hard rock. Black Widow records released selftittled debut album in 2011. Italian four-piece Desert Wizards are gearing up to release their third full-length, Beyond the Gates of the Cosmic Kingdom, this July through long-running nuance-purveyors Black Widow Records, and while the band's name and album title might both lead one to expect a heavy psychedelic or stoner rock vibe, the graceful keyboard work, slow progressive drift and purposeful clarity of production in "The Man Who Rode Time" would seem to argue otherwise.
