Miriodor have dropped from a four piece to a trio on this album. The violinist is gone yet this is still in a similar style to their previous self titled record. It's maybe not quite as samey as that one and thankfully it's about 30 minutes shorter too. So we get drums, sax and piano while each member doubles up on synths. If you like the instrumental complexity and power of Univers Zero, coupled with that band’s lack of any mainstream influence, chances are you’ll find 3rd Warning to your taste. And even if you’re a novice to the RIO sound and are looking for a place to start, Miriodor is probably the best place. They combine musical prowess and creativity with a certain amount of accessibility. The result is a tightly composed 45 minutes of excellent progressive music.

In some ways UK represented both the last hurrah of progressive music's golden age, and the standard by which all other supergroups that followed would be judged. The impeccable technical precision, complex yet modern arrangements, and dynamic live performances made them an overnight legend whose reputation has far outlasted their brief existence. No other supergroup, progressive or otherwise, has had such an immediate and lasting impact. Recorded live September 11, 1978 at Paradise Theatre in Boston, this recording is finally available after long been only found as a bootleg. Two tracks with the original UK line-up, rather than the more familiar 2nd (Danger Money and later) UK line-up.

In 1991 the Italian four-piece band released their first official and eponymous full-length work on Musea Records. The structure of the eight compositions (running time ranging from 4.26 to 8.40) is simple but very tasteful, you will be carried away by the warm atmosphere featuring a lush organ sound (lots of Hammond and Farfisa) and pleasant vocals. The guitarplay is subdued but fits perfect to the often romantic and melancholic climates. Some songs are mellow, other contain bombastic eruptions delivering majestic floods of organ, very compelling. If you like the melodic organ-driven progrock in the vein of Procol Harum and Rare Bird, this CD is a delight.

When King Crimson regrouped in late 1994 (after being apart for more than ten years), they were not planning on taping one of their first shows together for release as a live album later on. But after completing a successful tour of Argentina, the band discovered that a poorly recorded bootleg had surfaced, and it was costing fans a pretty healthy sum. So like many other bands before them, King Crimson decided to beat the bootleggers and release an official live album themselves. The resulting two-CD set is worthy of any serious Crimson fan's time, due to an excellent song selection, inspired playing, and crystal clear sound (taken directly from a DAT soundboard tape). The classic '80s lineup, which appears on B'Boom, is that of Robert Fripp, Adrian Belew, Bill Bruford, and Tony Levin, joined by new members Pat Mastelotto (drums) and Trey Gunn (stick)…

WEB FLAC (tracks) - 425 MB | MP3 CBR 320 kbps (LAME 3.93) - 143 MB | Front cover
Genre: Progressive Rock/Metal | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Blood Music

Avandra is the brainchild of Christian Ayala, a progressive rock/metal musician from San Juan, Puerto Rico. The band consists of Christian on guitars and vocals, Luis Javier Rivera on guitars, Gabriel Alejandro Rodriguez on bass, and Adrián Arroyo on drums. This album also includes guest appearances from Kevin Moore (ex-Dream Theater, Chroma Key, OSI), Richard Henshall (Haken), and percussion programming from Daniel Schwartz (Astronoid). The music on this record occupies that grey space between progressive rock and prog metal. You will hear plenty of riffing and technical drumming, but you’ll also hear plenty of alternative and progressive rock, a good amount of melody, delicate acoustic portions, and darker atmospherics bordering on melancholy at times. The vocals are low key and quite good, and they add to the shadowy tone of the album.

The Tirith are a Classic Rock band with a unique style, this is song based Rock, often described as Power Prog, and more guitar based than most. The band has a long history; but the present band reformed in 2010 and has been playing festivals and selected gigs since 2011. The Tirith are known for playing a wide variety of music within the Rock / Progressive genre and beyond. On Tales From The Tower (2015), the band recorded, for the first time the songs of their youth, but on this album; the second from The Tirith, they take the music in a different direction and present a new era of Tirith music with a collection of songs written in the recent past. It is an album concentrating on real songs performed, interpreted and recorded in the modern progressive rock idiom, featuring the songs of Tim Cox and Richard Cory. Hence it really is A Leap Into The Dark.

Easily the best album of their official bootleg cover series. The band seamlessly and almost effortlessly transition from track to track as if they had written the album themselves, and in a live setting no less. The second disc contains bonus Floyd songs performed throughout their career including the song, 'Echoes' in its entirety, 'Hey You,' and an awesome simultaneous performance of 'Comfortably Numb' with Queensryche.

Sapphire is a rock album by John Martyn, who by this stage in his career had almost entirely abandoned the acoustic guitar and folk approach in favour of a glossy pop/rock sound. Recorded at Compass Point Studios, Nassau, Bahamas and CaVa Sound Workshops, Glasgow, Scotland, the album was originally released on LP by Island, catalogue number ILPS 9779, with cover photography by Anton Corbijn and a cover illustration by Cathie Felstead.

This album from the Italian progressive rock group was recorded live in studio after their debut but never released until 2001. Camere Zimmer Rooms presents a set of live-in-the-studio recordings from 1977-1980. It chronicles the five-year interim between the group's studio albums. The quality of sound and performance is above what could be expected from archival recordings. Picchio dal Pozzo was one of a kind. Their music belonged to the Italian sound, but was also strongly influenced by Canterbury outfits like Hatfield and the North and National Health.

What would happen if Deep Purple and Yes had an illicit encounter under a Porcupine Tree? Marcus Taylor (guitars, bass, percussion) and Ben Bell (vocals, keys, other bass) were keen to find out and so kidnapped James Chapman (drums) then set about trying to brew a love potion to bring about the happy union. Living Dangerously is a Sonic Cocktail on the Rocks, blending equal parts Classic, Progressive, Jazz and Blues and cheekily spiking with a whatever they found lurking at the back of the cupboard. We hesitate to ask, but it was bright orange and it may have curdled. This sonic potion is possibly illegal in most countries, and ultimately was never imbibed by any of its intended subjects, yet it remains a 100% Broken Parachute Original, never to be repeated, and is guaranteed to leave a mark on both your listening habits and furniture.

The posthumously released, two-disc Live at Wembley '86 proves once and for all that Queen was a superior live band, and like the Beatles, the Stones, etc., had far too many hits to fit into a two-hour show. Recorded in their native England at the gigantic Wembley Stadium on their A Kind of Magic tour, the group was at their peak of popularity back home…

After releasing their critically acclaimed debut album "Solar Storm" in 2015, they shook the progressive metal scene, shocking the audience and reviewers with their tight, solid and heavy live performance. Rendezvous Point is now ready with their second studio album, taking their music to an even higher level. "Universal Chaos" continues the bands playfulness with advanced rhythms and sonic depth. The band consists of Geirmund Hansen on vocals, Baard Kolstad on drums (Leprous), Petter Hallaråker on guitar, Nicolay Tangen Svennæs on keyboards (Ihsahn, Bernhoft, Emilie Nicolas) and Gunn-Hilde Erstad on bass.

Welcome to the World is the second and final Psycho Motel album, released in 1997. It features a different vocalist from the band's first album, 1995's State of Mind. In place of Hans Olav Solli is Andy Makin, whose "dark lyrics and distinctive vocal delivery" differentiate the album from its predecessor. It also features Scott Gorham of Thin Lizzy and Dave Murray of Iron Maiden as guest guitarists. In 2006, Welcome to the World was re-released with two bonus tracks. These tracks contain Solli from the first album on vocals, and were probably recorded just before he left the band in 1997.

One of the most interesting aspects about the Alan Parsons Project is the band's ability to forge a main theme with each of its songs, while at the same time sounding extremely sharp and polished. Much of this formula is used in Ammonia Avenue, only this time the songs rise above Parsons' overall message due to the sheer beauty of the lyrics partnered with the luster of the instruments. The album touches upon how the lines of communication between people are diminishing, and how we as a society grow more spiritually isolated and antisocial. But aside from the philosophical concepts prevalent in the lyrics, it is the music on this album that comes to the forefront.
