This week on Prog-Watch I’ve got some great stuff from artists new to the show, some listener dedications, and a few classics! We’ll hear from Believe, Tusmørke, Michael Trew, Turning Virtue, Airbag, Tiger Moth Tales, King Crimson, Victim Of Illusion, Porcupine Tree, iNFiNiEN, Gentle Giant, The Flower Kings, & Whiteside’s Daughter!
If you missed this week’s Prog-Watch, you can still listen HERE
This week’s show was a tribute to Greg Lake. Greg was kind of a personal hero to me; and as a guy with a Prog Rock show, I couldn’t let his passing go without doing a tribute show. I’ve put together a nice career retrospective here, with some things you might not expect to hear and a few you may never have heard. So join me this week as I take a look back at a little of the impressive body of work left by Greg Lake. Requiescat in pace, Greg.
Review by Rivertree — This quartet has its homebase in the Netherlands and provides a very nice progressive art rock album with strong symphonic traces. Apart from the origin and the involved musicians there's yet, at this time, not much known about LUNAR CLOCK. However, the debut album 'The Scream Of Nature' reflects a very […]
Review by alainPP — KINETIC ELEMENT is a group made up of 5 members who must have listened a lot to the progressive dinosaurs such as YES, ELP and a little behind GENESIS but especially GENTLE GIANT; more recently it is especially DELUGE GRANDER, SPOCK'S BEARD or FLOWER KINGS that remind me of it.This live […]
Review by Steve Conrad — It Sucks to Be DeadEspecially When You're a Murderous BlighterAll right, all right. I confess I have NOT read Flann O'Brien's (actually Brian O'Nolan's) novel "The Third Policeman". But I HAVE read ABOUT it.This album by TOXENARIS (actually Timo Aspelmeier) is a whimsical, cinematic adaptation of the novel. Got it?!And, […]
Review by kev rowland — Recorded in Alphen aan den Rijn on 31st August 2019, this is the first official live album from Dreamwalkers Inc. The project may have gone through a few name changes over the years, but it is no longer a studio project from Tom De Wit, as it is now a […]
Review by DamoXt7942 — Sounds like PARHELIA's latest album would have been created for every post-rock / post-metal fan, with prediction of the current 'dark' world invaded by terrible small particles, despite of the bright title "Celestial Horizons". Or yes, they would let you know celestial horizons in near future. This deep, heavy, and distorted […]
Review by kev rowland — Way surely needs no introduction, as his work with Curved Air was ground-breaking in so many ways. An established multi-instrumentalist, here he restricts himself to mainly violin and electric guitar (with keyboards mostly for melodic support as opposed lead), alongside drummer Pete Skinner and bassist Richard Mead. Darryl Way says […]
Review by kev rowland — So here we have the debut album from The Bardic Depths, which is also their third. Confused? In some ways this is the third album from Birzer Bandana, being Dave Bandana (vocals, bass, guitars, keyboards, percussion, flute and harmonica )and Brad Birzer (spoken word), but as this was such a […]
Review by kev rowland — If my wife asks me about a conversation we have had recently, I must confess it is often a struggle to remember what it was about. But, if a band comes onto my radar then somehow it sticks, so as soon as this came through, the synapses started firing and […]
Review by Progfan97402 — Logos is an Italian band that's been around since the 1990s, although the current incarnation features a totally different lineup aside from Luca Zerman. I am not familiar with anything this groups has done, aside from Sadako e le mille gru di carta. I'm under the impression after two albums in […]
Review by Andis — Probably the best album of 2020This may very well be the best album that was released in the year 2020. I hoped, but didn't really expect, that Logos could top their fabulous album from 2014 named L'enigma della vita. But they do. What an album this is! There is one hour […]
