Louise Patricia Crane to release debut album “Deep Blue” on May 15th 2020

“Deity” is the debut single from vocalist and songwriter Louise Patricia Crane and transports the listener into an alternate world where “Dear Prudence” was tracked in the “White Album” sessions; a twilight place where the veil between life and death is at its thinnest, and the baroque sounds of 1980s avant-garde dream pop and guitar-driven 1970s progressive rock are natural bedfellows.

Leprous - Pitfalls

Leprous have become for a lot of fans a focal point in the prog genre, in some cases eliciting fanatical responses, both positive and as of late even negative. Not being a fanatical fan of a lot of popular bands and able to appreciate or sour up at will, about different releases has been quite liberating, as a musical work can either fit one’s criteria or even help expand their tastes, but becoming a fanatic usually takes away perspective and I feel that’s happened a lot to the Leprous fandom.

Confessional singer-songwriter Luis Mojica has announced his new album “How a Stranger is Made”, to be released in early October. Ahead of this, he presents the single “The Ranger”.

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.
