Mixing rock, hard rock and progressive rock with heavy metal and power metal influences, Brazil's Daydream XI is a band with no self-imposed boundaries. In their sophomore release, The Circus Of The Tattered And Torn, the band embraces the progressive side of their music in a dark concept album. The concept is a metaphor to express that we are drawn to each other more by our weaknesses and our flaws than our strengths and virtues. It’s portrayed through a journey, where Phillip, the Circus master, takes his new apprentice, Circe, across the various acts of this Circus. Each song represents a feeling or aspect of human life, channeled by the storyline of each character.

Darran Charles - Guitars, Vocals, Keys, Synths
Tom Price - Drums
Dan Nelson - Bass
Gavin Bushell - Guitar, Synths

The Cardiff based 4 piece... with their new album have delivered on their promise to be just as heavy as their self-released 2015 album Emergence but this time with a darker feel and more industrial sound.
A variety of synth sounds have found their way into the longer song formats (brevity had been the Godsticks calling card up until this point) but as always guitar and Charles’ vocals are still at the forefront of the band's sound.
Lyrically, Faced With Rage, explores the theme of people dealing with emotional conflict in different scenarios, and who have a powerful desire to change their behaviour or situation. It features for the first time a four-piece line up with new drummer Tom Price and guitarist Gavin Bushell who bring a more aggressive playing style to back up Darran Charles' unique vocal sound and Dan Nelson’s driving bass.

Marxo Solina - Steinway & Sons grand piano, MiniMoog model D, Solina Strings Ensemble, Mellotron M400, SCI Prophet-5, Arp Axxe, Arp Pro Soloist and Lindholm Spinet

Coming in with a whopping 15 tracks, “Bydyra” is composed of two original mini musicals that were written specifically for a local children’s school in Oslo. It is a unique work that explores the relatively “grown up” subjects of urban wildlife, the skyrocketing prices of housing in Oslo, the financial crisis, social issues, global warming, and good and bad magic.
With “Bydyra” TUSMØRKE have succeeded in blending their unique take on Prog Rock with a substantial dose of humour to create an album that will be enjoyed equally by both children, who will be enchanted by the characters and their adventures, and by adults, who will succumb to the psychedelic prog folk overtones. It is a journey filled with magical creatures that serve to charm and educate at the same time.

Iris Divine "The Static And The Noise"

Country: USA

1. Catalyst (5:20)
2. Taking Back The Fall (5:50)
3. Echoes / Effigies (6:11)

8. We All Dissolve (6:58)

Total Time 45:16

Navid Rashid - Vocals, Guitar
Brian Dobbs - Bass
Kris Combs - Drums, Keys, Programming

“The Static and the Noise” is one of those albums that as you hear each track, you find yourself saying “oh wow another great song!” And that’s important here. Iris Divine can definitely play BUT the song is clearly the most important thing here. Too many prog bands are worried more about the cool things that they can do rather than making a song memorable to the listener. The song is what matters to Iris Divine and because of that,”The Static and the Noise” is one of the best albums of 2017.

7. Marooned And Torn Asunder (8:06)
8. Water To Glass / The Ultimate Solution (12:31)

Total Time 79:56

Dan Britton: keyboards, guitars, other instruments (1-8)
Dave Berggren- electric guitar (6)
Neil Brown-trumpet (8)
Steve Churchill-oboe (1,7)
Brett d'Anon- bass, guitars (1-8)
Brian Falkowski- saxophone (3), flute (4,5), clarinet (8)
Denis Malloy- bass clarinet (1, 2, 3, 8)
Corey Sansolo- trombone (1)
Natalie Spehar- cello (2, 4, 5, 8)
Zack Stachowski- violin (4, 5)

The music on "Oceanarium" is entirely instrumental, densely orchestrated, and has a wide variety of instruments, including cello, trumpet, bass clarinet, flute, saxophone, hammered dulcimer, banjo, mandolin, violin, oboe, and trombone, in addition to the usual keyboards, guitars, bass, and drums. Although many musical styles are included, the end result probably fits nicely under the label "symphonic prog."
"Oceanarium" is the second album in a planned three-level seven-album series. The first album "Heliotians" was released in 2014, and the third album "Lunarians" will hopefully be released in 2018. "Oceanarium" is on the middle tier of the three-tiered seven-album series and contains ideas found in the two albums beneath it (the previously mentioned "Heliotians" and "Lunarians"), but unlike those two albums, it is densely and carefully orchestrated and is entirely instrumental.
