The Shiver - Walpurgis 1969
7.5
Prog Krautrock
Look at the weird art upon the sleeve at first, and keep an ear upon the psychedelic Krautrock prototype next. This stuff can be called as one of psychedelic progressive / Krautrock legends from Switzerland, veiled in a renowned artistic sleeve drawn by H. R. Giger. Basically non-colourful heavy bluesy rock tinged with dark stoner vibes they launched, but some innovative progressive essence can be heard via such a blues rock authenticity. The beginning shot "Repent Walpurgis" is awesome indeed. Exactly dark Kraut-ish flavour filled with deep, heavy exaggerate drumming and guitar voltage drives us of surrealism. Psychedelic watery keyboard sound surface is very atmospheric but at the same time very theatrical. Drenched in Satanic majesty like the sleeve painting, this masterpiece enough explains all of their album world, we can mention. Anyway "Hey Mr. Holy Man" features "Dies Irae" of Gregorian Chant ... I've listened to another Krautrock version of "Dies Irae" by SHANNONDOA, that sounds drier and cooler. "Hey Mr. ... -> show full review

Mindgames - Paradox of Choice 2015
8.1
Symphonic Neo Prog Rock
M!ndgames released their fourth Album after 5 years. The longest distance between their albums from their first album till now. And their second change in their line up happened in this album. The "Important" change in my opinion. Their former guitarist "Rudy Vander Vaken" left the band and replaced by "Sandro Sarita". Now they enter to new era of their career. I (as a fan of them) was very eagered to listen their new album after 5 years and after this important change in their line up. Finally their new Album released : " Paradox of Choice".

Their prev album "MMX" was successful for them and now they search for their "Own Place" in Progressive Rock scene.�

Let me preview songs of "Paradox of Choice". Album start with 20sec narration as "Prologue". This show direction of lyrics of album.

" The Whistle-Blower" designed for introducing their new member "Sndro Sarita" as their new guitarist. Sounding of Electric Guitar , semi-improvise solo , Dynamic bass line and keyboard sounding helped to guitar to listened better. You can't find similar song in this album. Note to Keyboard's sounds from Start to End. Using and adding fair Sounds to Prepare good space for Guitar solo.�

"The Age of Plenty" is the Longest track of album start with heavy Guitar-Key riff (very similar to SAGA band riffs) and dynamic bass playing with good vocal. Keyboard sounding completely different to Prev song. You can hear Melotrone sound in this song clearly. This song have many of "Epic Song Elements" like : Changing tempo of song in many times, Guitar solo playing in middle of song , Changing music directions and back to start riff of song and ... . I like this "Back to Start" so much (like "The Student Prince" song from Comedy of Error's Disobey album) . BUT they didn't successful to make a "Solid ... -> show full review

T.Phan - Soon 2016
7.9
Prog Rock/Fusion
Normally I don't mention to lyrics. Music and form is more important than lyrics for me but in this album , lyrics catch me from start of album. I like "NEDA" song. This is about a 26 years old girl who killed in street protests. This song is very impressive and emotional.

Anubis Spire - Between The Two Eternities 2016
8.0
Instrumental Prog Rock
Variety of many musical style under high influence of "Mahavishnu Orchestra" . You can see this influence even on Album Title (Eternities word!). Guitar playing with John Mclaughlin touch , Drums playing specially in first track , Hidden Perfect Bass playing and Eastern accent (specially India) are show me MO influence BUT spacey keyboard and atmosphere of their music , help them to run from clone or exact copy of MO. High recommended to MO and Psychedelic/Space Rock fans together! 8/10 rate in my opinion.

7.6
Prog Rock
Looking to their line up : Heather Findlay (Mostly Autumn), Dave Kerzner , Dave Kilminster ,Troy Donockley (Nightwish) , Irene Jansen (Ayreon) , Angela Gordon (Mostly Autumn) and Arjen Lucassen. Wow the great line up. When I saw this line up for the first time , I guessed their music is exact Prog Rock/Metal and after listening I found them Prog Pop! But their music is catchy and enjoyable. You can find many Prog Rock elements in their music. Highly Recommended for Xover Prog Rock fans.

I Am The Manic WhaleListen - Everything Beautiful In Time 2015
8.6
Symphonic Prog Rock
Symphonic or not Symphonic!!! this is the ONLY problem between serious Prog Rock fans. Most of us (Progressive Rock huge fans ) accepted them as a "Exact Prog Rock" band and we know about their Technical Abilities and their huge potential in Progressive Rock genre scene in this time. They show their abilities to playing music in many genres and styles clearly. Great Composing , Perfect instruments playing and Amazing Arrangement , make one of the best Prog Rock albums in 2015 (IMO). Don't miss this!!!

Delvoid - Serene 2015
8.4
Heavy Experimental Prog Rock/Independent
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!!!
