Description/Reviews:
The second thing to notice is the influence of Devin Townsend. The album kicks off with a heavy, djent-y sound mixed with some very Townsend-esque vocalisations and ‘tweedley’ lead riffs. A nice mix of ethereal sounding prog metal. There is lots of quick, technical riffs throughout, mixed in with some death metal styled riffing and vocals. It sounds almost like a mix sometimes of Gojira and Devin Townsend at points, particularly on Imperfection.

Central Unit "Whatever Day Suits You Best"
Afbeelding

Country: Italy
Genre(s): Instrumental Jazz-Rock, Fusion, Electronica
Label: M.P. & Records - MPRCD079/MPRLP080
Format: CD, vinyl
Release date: August 31, 2018

Tracklist:
1. On Board (6:05)
2. Gear Path (5:49)
3. Snowed Under (5:07)
4. Get It Out Of Your System (6:17)
5. Seesaw Daydream (8:20)
6. What Use (Bob Costa Remix) (5:12)

Total Time 36:50

Line-up:
Alberto Pietropoli - saxophone, flutes, voice
Enrico Giuliani - bass
Riccardo Lolli - keyboards
Andrea Ventura - drums and percussions

Description/Reviews:
The album Whatever Day Suits You Best mixes electronica, prog and jazz into a thick and heady brew of dance-beat inflected, instrumental jazz-fusion.... If you are looking at the line-up, and are thinking: “ah now that looks like an instrumental Van Der Graaf Generator, those perennial favourites of the Italian prog community”, then you would be, as I was, wrong. The sound here is more individualistic and reminds me of the French electronica-meets-jazz of Moksha Samnyasin and also of Sonny Simmons’ 2015 album Nomadic. It is livelier, less dark, though just as substantial.






Zhaoze "Birds Contending | 争鸣"
Afbeelding

Country: China
Genre(s): Instrumental Post Rock, Progressive Rock
Format: digital
Release date: November 23, 2018

Tracklist:
1. Birds Contending | 争鸣 (43:27)

Line-up:
Hoyliang: Electric Guqin, Xiao (Chinese Flute)
Littledream: Guitar
Roy: Bass
Seasean: Drums, Celesta

Description/Reviews:
Across the entire record, Zhaoze constantly bounces back and forth between progressive and post-rock that are done to gorgeous effect. Then layer in a true multitude of traditional Chinese instruments on top of all that, which are performed beautifully as well, and “Birds Contending” is made so much more detailed as the entirety of the record has a completely different and unique feel as we’re guided through the very forest that this record was actually recorded in.

Four Stroke Baron "Planet Silver Screen"
Afbeelding

Country: USA
Genre(s): Progressive Alternative Rock/Metal
Label: Prosthetic Records
Format: CD, digital, vinyl
Release date: November 9, 2018

Tracklist:

Total Time 41:11

Line-up:
Matt Vallarino: Drums
Keegan Ferrari: Bass
Kirk Witt: Guitar, Vocals
With
Jørgen Munkeby: Saxophone (9)

Description/Reviews:
Make no mistake, this is a weird and nearly unclassifiable little record that pairs heavy modern progressive rock with new wave/post punk, seemingly inspired by the likes of Tears for Fears and The Cure, and touches of jazz and electronica, and somehow makes that insane fusion of styles work. It’s also, for the most part, a lean and mean album chock full of insanely catchy hooks and riffs, and widescreen soundscapes, that, just when you think you have the measure of it, throws curveballs like saxophone solos played by the likes of Jørgen Munkeby.

Vermillion Skye "Zebra Mentality"
Afbeelding

Country: Canada
Genre(s): Art Rock
Format: CD, digital
Release date: November 30, 2018

Tracklist:
01. Zebra Mentality (4:51)
02. Aryanna (4:27)

09. The Scheme of Things (5:15)
10. Under the Gun (4:27)

12. Ill Will (5:05)

Line-up:
Jeff Johnston: lead vocals, keyboards
Pete Swann: guitars
Chris Robertson: bass
Steve Gerlewych: drums

Description/Reviews:
The album's title track explores the herd mentality that humans exhibit day to day. When you try to be like everyone else, what is your real identity? The title track itself challenges the norm by being an African-rhythm tune written in 5/4. There's even a Blues tune written in 7/4 appropriately called "The 7/4 Blues" which surprisingly one could dance to. That said, there are progressive time signatures sprinkled throughout the album, but it all feels right to the listener. Other stand out tracks include "The Pecking Order", "Aryanna", and "Tottenham" (written about the 2011 race riot in London England). Hints of Styx, Saga, and Genesis, as always, make their appearance, but the sound is uniquely Vermillion Skye.

With
Federica Vignoni - violins (2)
Davide DiBernardo - sitar (4)

Description/Reviews:
The end result is an offering that’s immersive and beautiful, foreboding at times and moodier, but never relinquishing its hold on the consciousness of the listener, the band not necessarily needing volume to make their statement heard. Whether it’s the (relative) surge in the second half of opener “Kim (((o)))” or the sitar-laced drift that hypnotizes into the fadeout of the penultimate “Overwhelmed,” the feeling of serenity never departs entirely from Sherpa‘s sound, giving Tigris and Euphrates a hopeful aspect that bleeds into every song in one way or another.

Spires "A Parting Gift"
Afbeelding

Country: UK
Genre(s): Progressive Metal/Rock, Death Metal
Format: CD, digital
Release date: September 28, 2018

Tracklist:
1. In Black Ravines (7:24)
2. The Court Of Clashing Skies (10:44)
3. The Seer (11:35)
4. A Parting Gift (6:06)
5. Seed Of Dionysus (10:04)
6. Etchings In The Emptiness (17:14)

Total Time 63:07

Line-up:
Paul Sadler - Vocals, lead, rhythm and acoustic guitars, keyboards
Dan White - Lead and rhythm guitars
Alex Jolley - Fretless Bass
Zac Oneil - Drums

Description/Reviews:
The influences are very evident on this release. With The Seer standing out as showing their respect to the legends of progressive metal, specifically Opeth (think Ghost Reveries, but from the UK) and Emperor. An all-round outstanding track (complete with a stunning guitar solo) that really showcases the influences, and the writing skill of the band, with every member shining on it.
In contrast, the title track A Parting Gift has more of a traditional prog rock sound to it, with elements of it reminding me of King Crimson and Porcupine Tree. Soft acoustic passages, crescendos in all the right places and soaring vocals are laid out for you here.

Description/Reviews:
The overall approach is still very much rooted in the classic metal/power metal-meets-prog intersection, meaning that the music is likely to find some favour with those who enjoy bands such as Queensryche and Crimson Glory to name just two. Indeed, these are reference points that Stoltz himself makes.

Description/Reviews:
...with Smells Funny the trio are venturing into the more free and open landscapes explored on their previous album, Black Stabat Mater.
Jazz or rock? Stonerswing? Or doomjazz maybe? For every new record by Hedvig Mollestad Trio, critics try to invent an adequate genre name for their spellbinding, uncompromising and visceral music. Classic Rock Magazine came closest: Jazz Sabbath. The band's eclectic mix of influences ranges from Black Sabbath and Jimi Hendrix to John Coltrane and contemporary jazz and metal music.

Line-up:

Description/Reviews:
The album's title track explores the herd mentality that humans exhibit day to day. When you try to be like everyone else, what is your real identity? The title track itself challenges the norm by being an African-rhythm tune written in 5/4. There's even a Blues tune written in 7/4 appropriately called "The 7/4 Blues" which surprisingly one could dance to. That said, there are progressive time signatures sprinkled throughout the album, but it all feels right to the listener. Other stand out tracks include "The Pecking Order", "Aryanna", and "Tottenham" (written about the 2011 race riot in London England). Hints of Styx, Saga, and Genesis, as always, make their appearance, but the sound is uniquely Vermillion Skye.

Description/Reviews:
The project deals with nocturnal images, reflections and sentiments of an otherworldly shady universe rather absurd and surreal than claustrophobic.
From the very first notes you can easily indentify the sound of this excellent musician. The music is even more expanded aimed by an open airy production.
From Taki's imaginative guitar work and hauting melodies to the galloping flute and swirling hammond tones of the eerie sonic landscapes, everything results in the creation of a piecework which is here to stay!
Put all these under the psych-progressive umbrella and you have a magnum opus. Exhilarating, mesmerizing and utterly exceptional!
