It's almost beyond comprehension that the last time muso quartet Liquid Tension Experiment recorded an album was 22 years ago. Yes, more than two decades. A pre-9/11 world. Five U.S. presidents ago. People not yet born then are now adults… you get the drift. In those days, Jordan Rudess was a long-haired newcomer to the..
'Olias for me was like going to music school for three months solid without breathing.' Of the solo debuts released in fairly quick succession by Yes members following their Relayer era, it's long been Jon Anderson's otherworldly concept album Olias Of Sunhillow that gets mentioned at the top of the heap more often than not...
Latest release from Azure is "Mistress" "Super chromatic and bright progressive metal/rock FFO Rush, Genesis, Rainbow, etc. Fuck, this track rules!!"- Eden Kupermintz, Heavy Blog is Heavy Azure's furiously idiosyncratic approach to melodic prog songwriting has been little more than a curiosity, bubbling under the surface of the modern prog scene for several years since..
They make Tales From Topographic Oceans look like a 45 rpm single... It's fair to say that Transatlantic are not exactly renowned for subtlety or brevity. The much-lauded supergroup doesn't do anything small, consistently crafting immense prog epics that seem loftier with each new release. Now, twenty-something years into their existence, they are taking 'epic'..

Without wishing to sound like a broken record (or even acknowledging that pun), I have to again recognize Esoteric's admirable dedication and meticulous attention to detail with their tireless reissue campaign over the years. Dusting off ancient back catalogues of countless bands and artists and propelling them back..
Hackett is easily swept up in the romance of these cities and their vast histories... A dozen years have cruelly stampeded by since Steve Hackett's last full album of acoustic-based compositions (and that last year was the cruelest of all). In that time he has proven himself a tireless stalwart of the rock world with..
Following the release of their conceptual new album 'A New Kind of Sideways', prog-meets-classic rock trio Kepler Ten have exercised their psychedelic side with a new music video for the song 'Weaver', taken from the new album. Taking influence from comic book imagery and 70's psychedelia, the subtle insertion of classic 70's prog synth sounds in..

Exquisite, skillful, rich in imagination and feel... The debut album from Grumblewood plays like a lost classic. It certainly doesn't have much 21st century about it, and yet it's a wonderfully refreshing change. You see, this quartet from Wellington, New Zealand merrily ignores boundaries, feeling every bit at home playing trippy bass lines and groovin'..
An eight-disc treasure chest that rewards the patience of starved Frost*heads... When it rains, it pours. Or maybe in Frost's case, when it snows, it… er, never mind. The fact is, until this year there hadn't been a new Frost* release in four years. Then in June came Others, a digital EP of new material..
