More great, new, astounding progressive sounds await on this week’s Prog-Watch! We’ll hear music from Hyco, The Weever Sands, Jump, Great Wide Nothing, Violent Silence and Antony Kalugin! Plus, our friend and resident reviewer, Dr. Rob Fisher, will take us on a voyage of Progressive Discovery with the latest album by Tony Lowe’s ESP Project!
As we didn’t get a chance to play the whole of IQ’s ‘The Dark Christmas Suite’ on this year’s Christmas show, here’s a remastered show from December 2017. No amount of remastering can compensate for the breathless, nay shouty, delivery of the presenter, or a cheap USB microphone, but we’ve done what we could eq/compression/loudness-wise to master it for a podcast audience and have tidied up a few crude segues.
Edition 241 of THE PROG MILL for Progzilla Radio (461 in total), first broadcast 27 December 2020, is now also available to listen to anytime or download as a mp3 file. Two hours of superb melodic and symphonic progressive rock.
Also in this week’s show, Leo Trimming of The Progressive Aspect reviews both Tiger Moth Tales releases from 2020, you can test your knowledge of the world of progressive rock in our fun, quick fire quiz ‘How Proggy Are You?!’, and we reveal the winner of last week’s CD Giveaway.

Join me next Sunday for THE PROG MILL LISTENERS ALBUM OF THE YEAR SHOW!
Review by kev rowland — German band Saris have had more than a few challenges over the years since their initial inception in 1981, but guitarist/keyboard player Derk Akkerman has been there throughout, and their last three albums have all featured the same line-up. They have two lead singers in Anja Günther and Henrik Wager […]
Review by kev rowland — Although guitarist Roman Odoj has been active in different bands in his local scene for some years, this is his debut solo album. Here he has been joined by multiple musicians, which includes three different keyboard players, a couple of different singers, plus we also get a violin, a cellist, […]
Review by kev rowland — Although the earlier albums were released as Gungfly, this is the second to be released with the longer band name, and as on 'Friendship' Rikard Sjöblom (Beardfish, Big Big Train) has been joined by bassist Rasmus Diamant and his brother Petter Diamant on drums (although last time there were plenty […]
Review by kev rowland — I have lost count of how many Wakeman albums I actually own, but including live works it must be approaching 100, so it is safe to say I am a fan. But if someone twisted my arm behind my back and ask what the last truly essential studio album he […]
Review by DamoXt7942 — Quite immersed in their exotic, eccentric psychedelic aroma. "Valses Elmentales" was released as the third album by an Argentine combo VLAD TEPES. I know a few Argentine acts like Nicotina Es Primavera, La Mujer Barbuda, or Vlubä, all of that have mysteriously tribal atmosphere, and through VLAD TEPES' album I can […]
Review by UMUR — "Visitations From Enceladus" is the debut full-length studio album by UK, Leeds based progressive death/thrash metal act Cryptic Shift. The album was released through Blood Harvest Records in May 2020. Cryptic Shift formed in 2012 (originally as Crÿptic Shift) and have released a string of minor releases (demos, singles, and the […]
Review by UMUR — "The Eternal Resonance" is the debut full-length studio album by Swedish progressive death/black metal act Sweven. The album was released through Ván Records in March 2020. Sweven was formed in early 2020 by former Morbus Chron lead vocalist/guitarist Robert Andersson. Morbus Chron split-up in 2015 after releasing an EP and two […]
Review by kev rowland — 2017's 'In The Passing Light of Day' was seen by many PoS fans as possibly their best release since their heyday, and with the return of long-time guitarist Johan Hallgren to a band which had been incredibly stable in the previous six or so years, expectations were high. However, not […]
Review by siLLy puPPy — And although almost a week after Easter 2021, a new egg has hatch in the coop of the eccentric BUCKETHEAD who has taken on another weird trait of releasing his PIKE series out of numerical order with PIKE 291 - FOGRAY coming out before any sign of #s 290 and […]
Review by Second Life Syndrome — Originally published on theprogmind.comI'm always impressed when a band can balance old and new, fresh and classic, ambience and rhythm. The Emerald Dawn are very good at this. Their fourth album "To Touch the Sky" released on March 20th, and I think it might be my favorite from them.Let […]
