HOIA to release debut full-length album “Scavenger” on April 19th 2019

Experimental beyond expectations, HOIA is an infusion of musical interests by Prateek Rajagopal. Popularly known for being a virtuoso guitarist, budding film composer and writer/producer for death metal legions “GUTSLIT” & Indian/Amercian prog metal supergroup “The Minerva Conduct”, his interest in genres and art forms beyond metal gave rise to HOIA, inspired by avant-garde, progressive rock, experimental and industrial music.

The Windmill

Hi Erik, I’m glad to have you again on Grande Rock. “Tribus”, is an exceptional prog rock album! It has made it to the GR list with the Best Albums of 2018 again!
 
E: Oh, wow thank you very much!
 
 
Well, why did you take you 5 years to release a new album? What happened in the meantime?
 

The Windmill - Tribus

I had been looking forward to The Windmill’s new album for some time now, but the years were passing by and nothing was happening. They finally released “Tribus” 5 years after the exceptional “The Continuation”, and they proved once more that it’s better to “speak” when you have something to say than do it with no reason.
 

Steve Dadaian to release debut album “Follow the Light” on February 1st 2019

The then 21-year-old classically-trained guitarist spent the little spare time he had reaching top spots at national guitar competitions hosted by Slash, John Petrucci (Dream Theater) and Jon Donais (Anthrax, Shadows Fall), performing at events with the likes of Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, and Nicko McBrain, and dazzling crowds at venues like the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
