Delvoid - Serene 2015
Dense and Depressive. Band from Norway and this have specific mean for serious music fans and remind them Nordic Musical Elements.
I like this "Format" of Heavy music. Song start very slowly with one instrument sound (like guitar) and vocal add to it then keyboard and Effects start to make dark Atmosphere and other instruments add to this mix one by one and then ... BOOM music reach to "Peak Point" and all instruments playing together Heavy Music. I Love it!!!

Forgotten Suns - When Worlds Collide 2015
After 6 years , Forgotten Suns release "When Worlds Collide". IMO this is their BEST album. They finally choose their direction and show their fav genre: "Progressive Metal". I recommend this album to Prog Metal fans and I think we must Accept them as a "EXACT" Prog Metal band.

Blank Manuskript - The Waiting Soldier 2015
Serious , Technical , Emotional with variety of instruments , sounds and genres. Great musical adventure in 39 min. The interesting point is "Playing instruments" for me. Each of instruments played Perfectly and they put in "Right Place" and "Right Time" and these show me the Power of Composing and Arrangement of this album. 9/10 in my opinion

Murky Red - No Pocus Without Hocus 2015
Great mix of genres. Experimental , Psychedelic and Heavy mixed with Blues elements and early "Pink Floyd" Atmosphere make a great music for Progressive music fans. "Giant Bands" influences forced me to listen and "Enjoy" from start to end in my first listen. You can find "The Doors" , early "Pink Floyd" (as I said before) , early Black Sabbath influences clearly in this Album. Highly Recommend to all of Progressive Rock fans.

Magnésis - La dame de Braise 2015
All things that I like in a "Neo Prog" album are here! Standard time (46 min) , Epic track , Concept album (Musical meant) and Retro music. I don't know French Language but I feel this is a Concept album. Symphonic-Neo Prog Rock album for all of 70's Progressive Rock scene.

Electric Light Orchestra - Alone in the Universe 2015
I'm not E.L.O huge fan but as many of music lovers I know them and I have good memories with their songs from 70's till now. I like this album not for their Progressive Rock music.This isn't a Prog Rock album. I like this album because of Nostalgic reason. There are many "New songs" in this album that make Nostalgic feelings on me. 7/10 rate in my opinion.
Breeze - The King of the Forest 2015
Great original Progressive Rock band from Germany. I write from their site about this album :
"As their most important work BREEZE present the concept album THE KING OF THE FOREST
Based on the epic compositions of Mietzke, Arnold developped a fairy tale opus.
Music and lyrics melt to a wonderful, uncomparable union.
Enter the fantastic world of THE FOREST KING!"
Riverside - Love, Fear and the Time Machine 2015
Dweezil Zappa - Via Zammata 2015
Variety of many styles,instruments and musicians.Great album for his father's(The Great Frank Zappa) fans. You will find Frank's musical elements in this album. He shows his great abilities like technique,Arrangement,Song Writing and composing in this album. Listen and enjoy.
Colin Mold - No You See Me 2014
Form and Style very similar to Peter Gabriel but not a copy of PG. Mold is a professional musician with a great Resume. You can refer to his PA page to know him better. He used many of PG elements but you can't feel that because he changed and "Update" these elements to create his own music. Nice and gentle mellow Prog Rock music.
