15th Art Rock Show: Toundra IV

Toundra - IV

Vossen op de Spaanse Toundra… post rock van hoog niveau! Toundra (IV), Ilúvatar (Children), Karnataka (Delicate Flame Of Desire), Redemption (The Origins Of Ruin), Citizen Cain (Somewhere But Yesterday) and Symphony X (The Divine Wings Of Tragedy).

Rinco Ennema van Prog Praat: “Een sterke plaat vol emotie, kracht en fantasie. (…) Toundra is echter van een kaliber dat meer mensen zal aanspreken als het gaat om diversiteit in de muziek. Het geluid van deze band zorgt ervoor dat je je ogen sluit en je muzikale hart opent. En als de nummers eenmaal toegang hebben gekregen tot je innerlijk, dan raak je ze niet meer kwijt. Prachtig album!

14th Art Rock Show: New World

Dave Kerzner - New World

Deze week muziek van Dave Kerzner, een kunstenaar die prachtige muziek maakt en dan nog geboren is in het gezegende jaar 1968… Dave Kerzner (New World), Leap Day (Awaking The Muse), Seventh Wonder (Waiting In The Wings), Brainticket (Celestial Ocean), Mahavishnu Orchestra (Birds of Fire) and Klaatu (Hope).

Rich Wilson van Prog Magazine: “With such a tumultuous backdrop, you might envisage that his solo debut would merely be an exercise in stabilization, speedily releasing an album to gradually rebuild his profile. Instead, he’s recorded something of such immeasurable quality that it legitimately outstrips anything he has recorded before.

New World is a spellbinding modern progressive rock collection that proves Kerzner’s a solo artist to reckon with.

13th Art Rock Show: Trip the Life Fantastic

Drifting Sun - Trip the Life Fantastic

Een goede scheut neo-prog deze week! Drifting Sun (Trip the Life Fantastic), Galahad (Empires Never Last), Marillion (Marbles), David Sylvian (Secrets Of The Beehive), Lye by Mistake (Fea Jur), Faust (Ravvivando) and Jethro Tull (Aqualung).

Review Prog Archive: “I really love comeback albums and when they are as fantastic as this one, I’m even more excited to be able to experience it at the time of its release. The history of this band is already documented on Prog Archives so the main point is that this is the first new release since 1998 and though some inevitable lineup changes have occurred, it absolutely rocks and there is not a bad track in the lot. The production, songwriting and talent on display here are bar none and we get all the bombastic elements of neo-prog with dramatic vocals and inspired keyboard and guitar solos. Read more...

12th Art Rock Show: Interstellar

Interstellar

Deze week brengen we Interstellar, de grandioze soundtrack van Hans Zimmer. En nog een hoop spacerock er bovenop! Hans Zimmer (Interstellar: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), Oceansize (Effloresce), Pink Floyd (Ummagumma:Live Album), Hawkwind (Warrior On The Edge Of Time), Tangerine Dream (Phaedra), Vespero (By The Waters Of Tomorrow)…

Mihnea Manduteanu on A small measure of peace: “Interstellar reaches an unprecedented level of excellence and I am amazed that after “Inception” and “Man of steel” which seemed pinnacles of Hans’ career, he was able to stun us again with an even more beautiful composition. I cannot get the sound of this score out of my head, I cannot shake those blissful organ motifs that are echoing inside me and I will listen to this score, incomplete as it is, over and over again… There are objects drifting forever in space without any chance of leaving their confines, and “Interstellar” will remain to orbit my heart forever… ”

11th Art Rock Show: The Grand Experiment

The Neal Morse Band - The Grand Experiment

The Neal Morse Band (The Grand Experiment), Sylvan (Encounters), No More Pain (The Post Human Condition), Triumvirat (Illusions on a Double Dimple), Scarlet Thread (Valheista kaunein), Silhouette (Beyond The Seventh Wave) and About tess (Beautiful).

Deze week de nieuwste plaat van Neal Morse en co. Noisefull.com review: “As a result, we have a new album that is based on Neal Morse’s trademark progressive rock sound, but filled with fresh elements here and there that make the final result differ from the last couple of his solo albums. By letting some more chefs in the kitchen, Neal offers a delicious meal that -undoubtedly- are based on his recipes, but at the same time contains some new ingredients that make it tastier.” http://noisefull.com/reviews/neal-morse-band-grand-experiment
