Description/Reviews:
We start with “Thalia,” one of many great moments on Theogony. A dissonant chord fades in and introduces the first riff… a massive, pounding, intensely atonal chord progression that really digs into your core. Chandler Mogel‘s vocals, while guttural and raging as it later displays, are also very cold and bone chilling. The sheets of guitar distortion offer a very vivid backdrop of the same effectively hollow atmosphere that haunts this album’s duration.

King Capisce "Memento Mori"
Afbeelding

Country: UK
Genre(s): Instrumental Progressive Rock, Fusion
Label: Lamplight Social Records
Format: CD, digital
Release date: October 6, 2017

Total Time 37:37

Line-up:
Tim Feben - Guitars, Synthesizers
Roshan Lal - Bass
Alex Baker - Saxophones
Richard Harrison - Saxophones
Thomas Ashfield - Drums

Description/Reviews:
The jazzy take on light instrumental prog is a way of adding interest to an already done sound, and it’s sure to make some great background music. It’s just probably not something you’ll want to sit down and listen to in detail, though. ... It’s full of tinkling clean guitars, volume swells, the politest breakdowns you will ever find, and all around laid back goodness. A great deal of tapping, some excellent drum lines, and droning and waxing horns make this a worthwhile set of ambient music for prog fans.

The members of Hollow Earth belong to a secretive cult, and are thus unable to give away their true identities. What they can do, however, is to play rock music in the vein of Deep Purple, Pink Floyd and King Crimson. This is stated to be the release of the year from Kommun2 and easily the most ambitious album ever released by the label.

Total Time 39:41

Line-up:

Dave Bean - drums & percussion, guitar, synthesizer, vocals
Michael ‘Le Serpent’ Breen - guitars, bass, Mellotron
Dave Read - bass, 6-string bass, synthesizer, Mellotron, random tone generator

Description/Reviews:
The album’s opener ‘Acid Cloud Pt.1’ is a slow burner of a track which both sets the tone for the album as something different and thought provoking. It take, for want of a better word, a psych influenced bass line and building around it with chilling effects and screaming vocals (that certainly wouldn’t be out of place on an Ono album). The track leaves the listener strangely unsettled and unsure of what to expect next.

Rosetta "Utopioid"

Country: USA
Genre(s): Experimental Post Rock/Metal

Total time 62:20

Line-up:
Mike Armine - vocals, electronics
Dave Grossman - bass, vocals
Eric Jernigan - guitars, vocals, keyboards
Bruce McMurtrie Jr - drums, percussion, vocals
Matt Weed - guitars, vocals, keyboards

Description/Reviews:
Genres such as “post-metal”, “prog-metal”, “experimental metal” and ‘”heavy no-wave/shoegaze prog rock” have been used to describe Rosetta’s sound. While none of these descriptions are incorrect (nothing that I may have made the last one up), they don’t fully capture the sound that is Rosetta. There is an amazing mix of heavy and soft, and light and dark, all rolled in at once. The band has the intensity of Ministry while also achieving the hazy atmosphere of Sonic Youth. Somehow they are able to mix the best of seemingly contrasting worlds to create an amazing sound that is packed with intense rage while also providing a light fuzzy vibe. The songs are all quite long with 7 of the 9 on offer going past the 6 and a half minute mark. This allows the ideas to be fully realised while in many cases the sounds developed in their own time at a steady but engaging pace.

Galahad "Seas of Change"
Afbeelding

Country: UK
Genre(s): Progressive Rock
Label: Oskar OSKAR 005LP (vinyl)
Format: CD, digital, vinyl
Release date: late January 2018

Tracklist:
1. Seas of Change
Line-up:
Stu Nicholson - Vocals
Dean Baker - Keyboards, Orchestration
Spencer Luckman - Drums, Percussion
Tim Ashton - Bass
Lee Abraham - Guitars

Description/Reviews:
'Seas of Change' consists of only one forty two minute track which incorporates many changes of tempo, mood and style and the band thinks it also represents a kind of hybrid of the older, earlier 'traditional' Galahad sound mixed with the more modern heavier, 'techno' orientated sound of the last few albums.

Art Against Agony "The Forgotten Story" EP

Country: Germany
Genre(s): Instrumental Experimental Progressive Jazz Metal
Label: Vault records

Release date: February 17, 2017

Tracklist:
1. 4.1 Gente Innocente Non Corre (06:08)

Line-up:
the_sorcerer - lead guitar
the_machinist - rhythm guitar
the_surgeon - piano, synth
the_heretic - bass
the_malkavian - drums

Description/Reviews:
Within the span of a single track, AAA can shift from folk to thrash and power metal, carnival music, and dissonant fusion. While even the most inept avant-metal band can go for this wildly varied approach, it takes a great band like Art Against Agony to do it this smoothly. The astounding variety may be evident while listening, but it doesn’t feel forced at all. Stark shifts in style and tone are abundant throughout The Forgotten Story, but at no cost to the musical momentum.

Description/Reviews:
...Art Against Agony have once again produced a mind-twisting release, something they are already known in the experimental, avant-garde and prog metal underground.
The group’s can-do attitude of mixing odd experimentation techniques into a metal state has earned them success since their 2014 debut “Three Short Stories.” The particular experiment AAA undertake is the fusion of contrasting genres, principally the extreme side of metal and fancy jazz.

Description/Reviews:
The music on this album has taken a long while to finalise. One or two tracks have appeared as 'bonus tracks' on previous England albums, but now for the first time the 'concept album', if we dare use that term, is complete. Many guest singers and instrumentalists have added their musicianship to the original (1977) line up. So... Marc Atkinson (of Riversea), Jenny Darren, and Henry Dagg (to name a few) appear. Additionally, later band members from the Baja Festival days (2006), Al Johnson, Maggie Alexander and Steve Laffy have been a major influence in the development of ideas. As is conventional in defining 'progressive rock music', there is a strong western classical music influence: classical choir singing (Sjaak vander Bent, Baritone), 'early music' singing (Clara and Nina Kanter), and symphonic keyboard ideas, mostly on 'authentic analogue instruments' such as the Mellotron and Minimoog synthesiser.
