Description/Reviews:

"Truth's Redemption" is the Swedish progressive metal band Silent Call's third album, which bounces between progressive metal and progressive rock while stunningly presenting a very melodic work. "Truth's Redemption" displays band's musical complexity: a clean sound breaking through the loud speakers with full momentum in order to establish themselves in the listener's head. Goosebumps are felt even upon the introduction of the grand opener "Nightmare." Silent Call define their terrain for the next 60 minutes: epic and very progressive tracks placed together with a healthy dose of classic rock and equipped with bombastic choirs and refrains, convey an abundant fantasy charm.

Cea Serin "The Vibrant Sound of Bliss and Decay"

Afbeelding

Country: USA
Sub Genre: Progressive Metal/Rock, Fusion
Label: Generation Prog Records
Format: CD, digital
Release date: October 6, 2014

Tracklist:
-Holy Mother (7:08)

Description/Reviews:

... the trio's sophomore effort is intensively heavy, complexly varied and rewardingly original. Singer Jay Lamm mixes soaring clean and occasional growls to good effect. The closing 20-minute Prog Metal opus, What Falls Away, is worth the price of admission alone. This is the sort of disc that will sit towards the top of the Best Albums of 2014 list for any fan of technical ProgMetal.

Kayo Dot "Coffins On Io"

Afbeelding

Country: USA
Sub Genre: Avant Prog, Art Rock
Label: Flenser Records
Release date: October 16, 2014

Tracklist:
1. The Mortality of Doves
2. Off-ramp Cycle, Pattern 22
3. Longtime Disturbance on the Miracle Mile
4. Library Subterranean
5. The Assassination of Adam
6. Spirit Photography

Line-up:
Toby Driver (Maudlin Of The Well) - voice, bass, synthesizers, organ, piano, Rhodes and percussion
Jason Byron (Maudlin Of The Well) - vocals
Keith Abrams - drums
Daniel Means - alto sax, tenor sax and clarinet
Ron Varod - guitars
Tim Byrnes - trumpet and horn

Description/Reviews:

When it comes to Kayo Dot, change is the only constant. And like the best pop culture chameleons of the past, Kayo Dot’s evolution is governed by an inscrutable inner-logic. Despite the accessible songwriting of Coffins on Io and the emphasis on vocal melody and electronic percussion, Kayo Dot fans will find the record’s darkness and intensity familiar and relatable. For example: the dark wave of Coffins on Io album-track “Off-ramp Cycle” might be unrecognizable to Kayo Dot’s metal fans. “The sound is kind of like a sexy combination of Type O Negative, Peter Gabriel, Sisters of Mercy,” Driver says. But the track also encompasses the brooding menace of classic Bauhaus as well as current dark wavers Cold Cave and Crystal Stilts: artists young and old who live and die in those unknowable corners where heaviness meets delicacy and sincerity meets theatricality.

Elsewhere, Driver’s penchant for prog rock surfaces in the ethereal “Spirit Photography,” complete with a saxophone melody line—strikingly gentle when compared to Kayo Dot’s brutal back catalog. “Long Time Disturbance on the Miracle Mile” could be a Bryan Ferry-era Roxy Music cut, and “The Mortality of Doves” could be Eno-produced David Bowie.

Driver says there’s also an element of sexuality in Coffins on Io.“Basically the vibe that we’re going for here is inspired by 80s retro-future noir— Blade Runner,” Driver explains. “I wanted to make a good record to put on while you drive across the desert at night under a toxic, post-apocalyptic atmosphere,” he says, adding, “There’s a weird underlying theme of murder, shame and death.”

Description/Reviews:

Involved fuse the psychedelic sounds of ’70s kosmische with ’80s electronic and more modern ambient styles, creating evocative, cinematic music. However, rather than being revisionist, the duo curate fresh sounds from a musical palette that spans 40 years. Lush synth tones are deployed with an innate sense of melody, leading the listener through widescreen narratives of enviable scope. On debut album Revolving Maze, the title says it all: this is complex, engrossing music that transforms with each spin.

With their new album The Third Day, Edinburgh’s North Atlantic Oscillation have created a flow of energy deserving of their meteorological namesake. At a time when music is increasingly cut down into single segments for easy digestion, the record – the first they’ve produced entirely themselves – is woven together as a whole, beautiful body of work, the tracks entwined around each other with no dead space in between.

Description/Reviews:

Following the release of his acclaimed collection of electronic and sample-based music, Emmettronica, in 2013, Bloody Marvels is a collection of largely instrumental pieces performed on acoustic instruments. Emmett is a master of guitar as well as keyboards, and plays a bewildering variety of both stringed, keyed, struck and blown instruments to create this beguiling, atmospheric and haunting album. Strong on melody and mood, with occasional moments of both playfulness and terror, these fourteen songs – together with two bonus tracks – will transport the listener into Emmett’s musical realm, leaving a long-lasting impression of its beauty in the heart and the mind.

Phi "Now The Waves Of Sound Remain"

Afbeelding

Country: Austria
Sub Genre: Post Progressive Rock
Label: Gentle Art Of Music
Format: CD, vinyl, digital
Release date: October 24, 2014

Tracklist: 
Buy Your Piece Of Love (04:41)
Welcome Tomorrow (08:36)

This Last Favour (04:51)


Line-up: 
Markus Bratusa - Vocals, Guitar, Programming
Arthur Darnhofer-Demàr - Bass, Vocals
Gabe Cresnar - Drums

Description/Review

On this record the mighty walls of Tool’s guitar sound meet the driving rhythms of Rush and gently merge with sophisticated arrangements that resemble the delicacy of Porcupine Tree. The Jeff Buckley-esque jazzy elegance provides the music with the final ingredient that completes the fused aesthetic of the old and the new.


In order to make this album the comprehensive experience that it has ultimately become, Phi have created and implemented a textual concept in which the discourse on music’s role, its significance, its drift into banality and the corresponding deterioration in value in today’s society functions as a backdrop for a both detailed as well as cynical analysis of major issues. The enormously powerful message of this album lies in the fusion of emotion and the coolness of the intellectual: art is so much more than only a mere product. ‘Now The Waves Of Sound Remain’ challenges the boundaries: this is music with a ‘double bottom’.
