The Windmill - The Continuation

I happened upon this band out of nowhere. It seems that Norway is having something like a bloom in every rock & metal genre during the last years. I was immediately amazed by the prog rock approach of the band but I was not ready for what I was about to experience. First of all, I have to say that The Windmill started out in 2001 and after some line-up changes...

Alan Reed - First in a Field of One

Not one, not two, not ten but twenty-five years had Alan Reed been Pallas’ voice and his break-up with the band came as a shock to a good many people. Nonetheless, it was only natural for a man of his magnitude to go solo and so he did. Many might reckon that “First in a Field of One” is just an attempt for Alan to stay inside the music industry...

Moonrise

Hi Kamil. Your third release was meant to be the best so far! Kudos! “Stopover – Life” is a wonderful work by any means.   K: Thank you very much! This third album was planned as a form of sequel to previous releases - without serious changes in band’s style. I wanted to present honestly how I feel and what every single day brings to...

Moonrise - Stopover - Life

I’ve always kept an eye on this inimitable band from Poland, which, auspiciously, released its 3rd album almost 3 years after “Soul’s Inner Pendulum”. This time the band has a new singer, Marcin Jajkiewicz, who joined them in 2011. He has a suave & colorful voice and I think that it was a good choice in the main.   Without any...

miRthkon - New Live DVD out in July

The prog world is buzzing with excitement about the forthcoming DVD release by miRthkon; Oakland, CA based amplified chamber ensemble masquerading as a rock band. This illusion is well maintained by the fact that from time to time they do indeed rock. Maintaining a passionate aesthetic stance that they are (quite happily) 'beneath everything', their music...

Hasse Fröberg & Musical Companion - Powerplay

Taking a break from his main band, The Flower Kings, Hasse Fröberg (vocals, guitar), immediately formed a band (not a project… cuz he is an old-fashioned guy as he said) in 2009 and released their debut album, “Future Past”, in 2010.   Not far away from The Flowers Kings’ music… he continued to deliver progressive rock...
