You Go Now is the second solo album by keyboardist Kevin Moore, former member of Dream Theater. You won't find that brand of virtuosic hard-edged prog on this CD. Instead, look for great music in the form of prog that is more closely related to the music of Alan Parsons Project and old Pink Floyd. The songs also show influences from newer, more alternative and techno types of artists. The overall result is catchy, almost pop-oriented music that has a great jazzy prog flavor. The musicians on the disc are Moore and David Iscove.

“Nine” is the second album of Swedish band Platitude. “Nine” offers everything in between AOR/melodic hard rock and progressive metal, sounds familiar, original and refreshing all at the same time, does not contain a single weak song - even bonus track “Supernova” is better than what most bands release these days - and has a sublime production by renowned knob twister Jacob Hansen.

I Am I is the new band that has been put together by former DragonForce frontman ZP Theart following on from what was evidently an acrimonious parting of the ways due to “insurmountable differences of opinion”. Aside from Z.P., I Am I is comprised of drummer Paul Clark Jr, bassist Neil Salmon and guitarist and co-songwriter Jacob Ziemba who excels on both counts. The band’s debut shows here in the UK back in the spring received strong reviews and it therefore comes as no surprise to find that Event Horizon is a top quality release of barnstorming melodic metal anthems.

“Legends” can be summed up as high quality, symphonic Power Metal with ass-kicking melody inserts, powerful guitars and lyrics with insight. As far as DRAGONY’s overall sound goes, one finds similarities with bands such as Edguy, Kamelot, Sabaton and Stratovarius. Guest musicians: Tom Tieber (Ecliptica), Katie Joanne (Siren’s Cry) and Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear).

It's not surprising that their influences can't be found only in genre classics like Blind Guardian or Running Wild, but also in the incomparably great soundtracks from the world of films and computer games.

With guest musicians they recorded in 2010 the well-received debut album Shoot The Moon. Great melodic symphonic neo-prog from Belgium. Pink Floyd and Moody Blues meets Alan Parsons Project and Phideaux. Beautiful harmony vocals (Frank's voice is reminiscent of David Gilmour), and great symphonic songs.

Frank calls his work "ambient synthesizer music", but it is probably much more than that. Influenced by artists like Deep Forest, Enigma or Beautiful World, his contributions to the genre are indeed more electronic. He likes sequencers (we too) so the results with them are excellent. There also ethnic traits (listen to that voices), good rhythms, a wide sound palette (including sounds from the nature), and charming melodies which you will want to hear over and over again. Colours is one of the best works around for this type of music. Please, listen to pieces number 2 or 3. They are definitely great! The album contains 12 themes. Frank Van Bogaert composed, arranged and produced them. He also plays all instruments.
