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 →

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)

‘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 →

Brain Story – madeinside (S/R)

A Polish guy called Mariusz Kumala has created a progressive psychedelic rock project depicting musical space travel. “madeinside” is its latest incarnation. “madeinside” is indeed like a journey through the clouds. Echoing, synthesised voices, cosmic interventions and other wordliness are… Continue Reading →

The Thirteenth Sun – Stardust (Aural Music)

Just to call a band Progressive Metal poses further questions nowadays. Many years ago it was easy, it used to be that you would see the term and just think Dream Theater and that’s an end to it, but it’s… Continue Reading →

Atavismo – Inerte (Temple of Torturous)

With a promise of less space rock and experimentation than on their debut album “Desintegración”, Atavismo return with “Inerte”. From jam sessions, Atavismo put the finished structure of their self-proclaimed progressive and psychedelic rock pieces together. “Pan Y Dolor” (Bread… Continue Reading →
