Welcome to P52, Prog magazine's second cover CD for 2017. You don't get much bigger than Steve Hackett, here with Hungarian jazz band Djabe, lending a new twist to Steve's own The Steppes. Or Oceans Of Slumber, who boldly take on the Moody Blues' Nights In White Satin in emphatic style. Or Japan/Porcupine Tree keysman Richard Barbieri, with new, jazz-flecked solo fare, and of course Touchstone and Ghost Community, who weigh in with some grand, melodic music. Elsewhere, the UK's Beatrix Players add melancholic beauty, and Multi Story complex intrigue. New Australian bands Anubis and Hemina show there's some exciting new music being made Down Under, and Jug Bundish do the same for Costa Rican prog.
Welcome to P51, Prog magazine's first cover CD for 2017. This first CD of the new year is certainly overflowing with promise. We feature former Limelight artist Baltic Fleet alongside Polymatters and Nerissa Schwarz, who seem to veer towards the synth side of prog. Then there are some real prog bangers in the shape of Kepler Ten, Kyros, The Fringe and Seas of Mirth, who can't fail to get the foot tapping and the head nodding. There's some stylish progressive rock from Glass Hammer and Aisles, and also from newbie Bugenhagen. Ten tracks of different styles, maybe, but all of the same level of quality.
Welcome to another Prog magazine cover CD. There's well-known names in Big Big Train, Circuline, Deckchair Poets and jazz rocker Bobby Previte.
Welcome to P49, bringing you the latest selection of new progressive sounds swirling around the ether. There's a strong melodic flavour to many of the tracks on offer, with the return of Jadis and also of former TesseracT singer Ashe O'Hara with Voices From The Fuselage, not to mention European offerings Holon (Norway) and Alex Carpani (Italy). There's also some intriguing electronic prog from worriedaboutsatan, bolstered by the vocals of Anathema's Vincent Cavanagh, OddsFiche's haunting ambience and Edensong's mix of folk prog and metal. There's also psychedelia from The Honey Pot and the return of 70s rockers Jerusalem, too. A little something for everyone.
Welcome to P48, featuring the latest in up-and-coming and occasionally established progressive music. There is, perhaps inevitably, a heavy Awards presence on this CD, with two winners from this year's event, iamthemorning and The Anchoress, and Elaine Samuels & Kindred Spirit and Marcela Bovio help up the female quotient. Kylver (an Awards nominee) and Desert Dragon represent something a little heavier, and Second Relation, Aisles, Cairo an Tilt lean towards the more melodic.
The twelve song collection of cuts presents a new generation of prog artists. Mystery, Big Big Train, The Pineapple Thief, No-Man, Panic Room, Mostly Autumn, Manning and more.
A spinoff of its parent magazine, Classic Rock Presents Prog takes a look at progressive music and the artists who weave them together. Each issue takes a soul-searching foray into the hearts and minds of the heroes of rock, reviewing both new and old releases. Building upon the history of some of the most genre-defining pieces ever devised and those who followed who continue to refine, revolutionise and completely discard the formulas of those who came before. Reflecting on the proud genesis of this unexpected genre, Classic Rock Presents Prog is an able tutor for those in the dark about the evolution of progressive music, and a tonic for existing fans.
