For those new to the band's work, Polyphia is essentially a 4 piece instrumental prog rock band formed in 2014. They have yet to find a drummer they can stick with, but the guitarists and bassist are permanent members. Fans of their early work will surely be disappointed over the relative lack of drop- tuned chug riffs on this album. Polyphia have now gone strongly in the direction of super- catchy melody driven songs contrary to their more percussive counterparts Animals As Leaders and other bands in the genre…

The Chaos Game is a mind-bending first full-length effort that deserves its place amongst analogs like Bubblemath, Knifeworld, Diablo Swing Orchestra, and Frank Zappa. Cabinets of Curiosity is a seven-piece ensemble comprised of vocalist Nat Hornyak, bassist Jared Hirst, guitarist Bran Blackmire, keyboardist Justin Jones (who's also in Tungsten, a Philadelphia-based prog metal band), lead guitarist/songwriter James Naprawa, flutist Kristina Bacich, and saxophonist Anthony Warga. They reasonably define their style as "Fragile-era Yes meets Kamelot" and "Frank Zappa meets Fiona Apple"; specifically, Naprawa says that they aim to "touch on what made the classic era of prog so magical," which means merging "super technical" moments in "insane time signatures" with "hummable" musicality.

The band's name is Evergrey and the music is pure Progressive Metal. This band has been around since 1996 and have released their 11th album in January 2019 called "The Atlantic". This album finishes a trilogy of albums that were ocean themed. Their last three albums have been top notch progressive metal with a strong sense of melody, smart lyrics and strong and solid metal which can only be considered metal…

The two-time GRAMMY® Award nominated progressive metal band Dream Theater has sold over 15 million records worldwide. Distance Over Time is the band’s 14th studio album. For this record, the band approached things a little differently. For the first time, the bandmates lived, wrote and recorded together at the secluded Yonderbarn studios in Monticello, NY over the course of four months. For the new album, the band wanted to return to their roots and produce a more organic record. Despite these changes however, Dream Theater upholds their unique signature of combining metallic aggression and progressive scope and puts it in a frame of tighter songwriting.

Debuting at number 92 on the Billboard Top 200 list, Weightless marks a change in Animals as Leaders’ tone. While 2009’s self-titled album saw guitarist Tosin Abasi and Misha Mansoor handling all the duties, Animals as Leaders’ sophomore studio album finds the new lineup of eight-string virtuoso Tosin Abasi, drummer Navene Koperweis, and rhythm guitarist Javier Reyes focusing on songcraft as much as speed in their instrumental exercises…

Swedish-based progressive metal group Soen will purge themselves of their 4th album -Lotus- on February 1st 2019. Featuring nine pieces, Lotus is the latest in a line of aural therapies from the band, questioning much of today’s darkness as juxtaposed with moments of great escape and hope. The lotus flower has always been a symbol of the purity rising from muddy uncertainties, and with songs such as “Covenant”, “Rival”, “Martyrs” and the title cut all expressing perspectives of life’s darker moments, it was a natural title for this latest project. Produced by David Castillo and Iñaki Marconi at Ghostward Studios and Studio 6 between July and October 2018, the centre-point of the album remains those trademark, snap-heavy, progressive Soen riffs, while overall Lotus promises an exciting new chapter of skin-shedding, soul-searching journeys for all who dare to commit to the ride.

Anabasis is a progressive metal outfit formed in 2016 based in the Central New York area. The original concept for the band came about after the ending of a fourteen-year run of the local prog metal band, Spire. Two of the members, Patrick Young and Jesse Peacemaker, were having Dave Reid fill in on drums for the last couple of shows. The intention was to have Dave continue drumming for Spire and, in the meantime, they would be seeking another guitar player to keep the band going. With all of the changes, it was in everyone's best interest to dissolve Spire and pursue other projects. Pat, Dave, and Jesse conceptualized what is now called Anabasis. Brad Devore, who originally auditioned for Spire, was added to the lineup on guitar along with Dylan Lundgren who they sought out after witnessing his incredible lead work at a show. To finalize the project, Pat recruited tech-master AJ Piszcz on bass.

Dream Theater's first album with new vocalist James LaBrie is an excellent mix of progressive metal stylings with heartfelt vocals and thought-provoking lyrics. Guitarist John Petrucci, bassist John Myung, and drummer Mike Portnoy, all of whom trained at Berklee, show impressive ability on their respective instruments. Kevin Moore's keyboards weave strongly through the intricately constructed songs, while operatically trained LaBrie shows an impressive range with his tenor…

Boy, does this band have a great guitar sound. Big, thick, and richly nuanced, they occupy a space somewhere between the mindless heaviosity of metal and the pseudo-intellectual grandeur of prog rock. Tom Englund's voice is similarly flexible, moving from a guttural roar one moment to an operatic, chesty bellow the next…

It’s great to have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of great music. I confess I’m not so fond of the so called rock aesthetic anymore. In my oppinion we’ve had enough from it. Rock aesthetic has changed a lot throughout the years to the point of having merged into its subgenres as our Heavy Metal and Art Rock, which are still alive and kicking. When you talk about rock nowadays, a kid first think of Heavy Metal imagery: black T-shirts and leather, skulls and bones, spikes and others. Most probably the kid will say a Heavy Metal band when asked about today’s rock scene. The same happens, in a smaller proportion, to Art Rock bands – progressive rock to old folks as me.

Taking three years to release their follow-up to MUTTER is a good idea since REISE, REISE is more of the same – the same grit, the same growl, and the same dramatic, orchestra choruses. There's a bit more ingenuity in the production and a little more focus in the songs but not enough for the nonfaithful to pick up on. Unfortunately the lead single, "Mein Teil," is no "Du Hast," but the damning "Amerika" almost equals their breakthrough track. Whether or not Rammstein's label has the guts to release the band's acerbic "Coca-Cola/Sometimes War" view of the States as a single is another question, but it's the key track to the album, an album that has a couple more, minor surprises.

The Retinal Circus is a live album by Canadian musician Devin Townsend. It was released on September 30, 2013, in Europe, and on October 29, 2013, in North America. The audio and video material were recorded at Roundhouse, London, on October 27, 2012, when Townsend performed a special one-night-only concert celebrating and covering his 20-year musical career. In November 2011, after performing a series of special Devin Townsend Project shows, Devin Townsend revealed his plan to perform a one-off concert in London, England, that would cover his musical career from mid-1990s up to that point. Townsend stated that he wanted to create a "more than musical" show which included a storyline, multiple performers and special effects. Later he said that the concert would be recorded for future release.

Swedish originals Freak Kitchen combine the unpredictable, anything-goes-so-long-as-it's-unusual philosophy of Faith No More and Strapping Young Lad, the compositional discipline and vocal harmonies of King's X, and the explorative spirit of Frank Zappa into one of the more idiosyncratic and independent careers in metal. Formed in the city of Gothenburg, in 1992, by visionary vocalist and guitar wizard Mattias Eklundh (formerly a member of Danish band Fate) Freak Kitchen's original lineup also included bassist Christian Grönlund and drummer Joakim Sjöberg, who collaborated on everything from the music to album artwork, and consciously avoided any contracts offered by major labels in order to retain their precious independence…
