Danish proggers Isbjörg return with new singer and single

Danish proggers Isbjörg return with new singer and single Ornament, a first taste of their upcoming second album, expected toward the end of 2023.

Mask of Prospero – Hiraeth

This album has been three years in the making but is well worth the wait. I hope we don’t have to wait another three years for the next release, because this is another great Greek story.

Euphrosyne – Keres (EP)

I’ve no doubt that the band will be keen to follow up on this excellent debut as soon as possible.

Avandra – Prodigal

This new release is certainly a progression, they are obviously not afraid to experiment, so it will be interesting to know what’s in the pipeline.

During this time both frustration and anticipation were left to boil, so when the riffs finally unleashed, it was catharsis time.
