Echolons))) – Idea Of A Labyrinth (Tonzonen Records)

German Progressive Rock quartet Echolons))) formed in the early 2000’s in Frankfurt Am Main and have a different approach to the one I prefer when it comes to the music they create on the Progressive Rock spectrum. Whereas I usually… Continue Reading →

Hypno5e – A Distant Dark Source (Pelagic Records)

French Cinematographic metal? I feel like I should be wearing a black polo neck and smoking a Gitanes.  This quartet hail from Montpellier not the back streets of Paris and have been crafting their blend of prog, extreme metal and soundtrack… Continue Reading →

Kayo Dot – Blasphemy (Prophecy Productions)

To quote the band: “Kayo Dot is an avant-goth, progressive experimental doom, abstract electroacoustic black modern compositional metallic band based in Brooklyn NY”. Unsurprisingly I didn’t know what to expect exactly but I knew that Kay Dot’s ninth album “Blasphemy”… Continue Reading →

Lucy In Blue – In Flight (Karisma)

Coming from a label that generally houses prog and rock bands, I had a reasonable idea what to expect here, at least in terms of generic musical style. Lucy in Blue are from Iceland, and take their inspiration from psychedelic… Continue Reading →

Oldd Wvrms – Codex Tenebris (Cursed Monk Records)

Forming in 2014 Belgian quartet Oldd Wvrms have bashed out two E.P.s and two full length collections in their short life. Their third “Codex Tenebres” is thunderous fist of darkly atmospheric instrumentals that draw from sludge, doom, post rock and… Continue Reading →

Shuffle – #WontTheyFade? (Klonosphere)

When you get a press release which states that a progressive metal band has a huge host of diverse influences which contribute to making the band sound unique/individual/unheard of, it is like a red flag; it’s a trope many people… Continue Reading →

Riverside – Wasteland (Inside Out)

I hold Riverside in very high esteem. By far one of the better acts within the progressive umbrella, I’ve been an admirer of the band since I stumbled across their debut back in 2003. I saw them rise in ability… Continue Reading →

Sisare – Leaving The Land (V.R. Label)

As fine as it is, that artwork doesn’t give a lot away does it? Possibly something retro? Something a touch Doom-laden perhaps? Well actually Sisare are a Finnish progressive rock/metal quartet, building nicely on their debut with this, their 2nd… Continue Reading →

Deadly Carnage – Through The Void, Above The Suns ( A Sad Sadness Song)

I have reviewed this Italian bands last two full lengths the last one of which was released in 2014. The band has been relatively quiet since then with only a two track EP called “Chasm” showing up in 2016 that… Continue Reading →

The Osiris Club – The Wine-Dark Sea (Indie)

It’s easy to write about an album that’s really good. It’s also easy to write about an album that’s really bad. It’s not so easy to write about an album that’s somewhere in the middle. The Wine-Dark Sea by London’s… Continue Reading →

Necro Deathmort – Overland (Profound Lore)

‘Overland’ is the eighth full-length release from electronic duo Necro Deathmort, and their first on Profound Lore. The pairing have kept themselves busy over the last decade; as well as creating their own dynamic layers of sound, they have produced… Continue Reading →

Himmellegeme – Myth of Earth (Karisma Records)

Psych rock and atmospheric prog rock are at the heart of this album from Norwegian band Himmellegeme, so it’s not surprising to see the points of reference as Sigur Rós, Pink Floyd, Radiohead and Jeff Buckley. To make this work,… Continue Reading →
