22nd Art Rock Show: Re: Search

De band Retrospective vertegenwoordigt een jonge generatie Poolse Prog Rock bands. Hun muziek is geïnspireerd door verschillende artiesten die een breed scala aan muzikale genres bestrijken (Porcupine Tree, Tool, King Crimson).

Prog Archives Review: “It took four years from the debut for Polish Prog Metal act Retrospective to release their second, and then another five for this their third, so let’s hope that they don’t keep on this progression as I really don’t want to wait for six years until the next one! There is a real mix of melody and metal combined with rock sensibilities and passion that makes this album stand out from many others within the genre.

It is just about impossible to make a comparison with other bands, but possibly the closest would be Muse or Porcupine Tree, but even that’s not fair on either band.… Read more...

NIEUW ** Willem M. Roggeman leest Blue Notebook

Willem M Roggeman BlueNotebook cd

Willem M Roggeman BlueNotebook cdGuy Van Hoof over dit werk van Roggeman: “Deze bundel is dus een ode aan de jazzmuziek, of jazzmusici. Het zijn vaak dezelfde namen die je overal weer tegenkomt en die de geschiedenis van jazz hebben bepaald. Bekende namen defileren hier, die boven de anderen uitstaken of vernieuwend waren, die durfden en grenzen verlegden, al zijn er zo vele anderen die in het donkere landschap van de muziek niet wisten te overleven, niet sterk genoeg waren. Jazz heeft roots in de slavernij, de rassendiscriminatie in het Zuiden,vernedering en achteruitstelling, daarnaast  waren er de kleine clubs en cafés waar muzikanten broederlijk tot in de vroege uurtjes speelden”.  www.guyvanhoof.be

21th Art Rock Show: Le Livre Blanc

Deze week stellen we Jean Pierre Louveton, gitarist, zanger en componist bij de Franse progband Nemo aan u voor. Jean Pierre Louveton of JPL heeft al verschillende verrassend mooie soloplaten op z’n actief. Le Livre Blanc is zijn laatste.

Prog Archives review: “There is a strength in this album, nearly a harshness, as the vocals are full of passion. Combining this with the multi-layered and incredibly well constructed and arranged music creates an atmosphere where the listener is soon inside a world very much of JPL’s making. There is some wonderfully fluid and complex piano underlying some of these songs, and this provides a solid basis for JPL to multi-track guitars so that he then has somewhere to lay some inspirational solos against. “L’ermite” is a case in point, where music goes from layered and bombastic to simple and almost acoustic, before coming back with a real bang.… Read more...
