RotW_20May2022

Instrumental or not: the prog metal factor is high this week!

Releases of the Week 20/2022 with Steroid Puppets, Mendel, !GeRald! & Iris Divine

Evergrey – A Heartless Portrait (The Orphean Testament)

There’s plenty of variety across the tracks, be it grandiose, driving riffs or sombre moments, and it never gets boring. I think this new release has re-ignited my love for these Swedes.

GeRald_TheLostTapes

!GeRald! – .The Lost Tapes.

!GeRald! is a class act with a pinch of absurdity, which makes them just my type. Nothing is overdone or blown out of proportion, but it is still in your face.

Music for all of the Spheres together: !GeRald! found The Lost Tapes!

Teddie Burton, drummer of French avantgarde prog punkers !GeRald! talked to us about his love for everything that makes noise, the rare infusion of a punk ethos into proggy music and the making of their debut album “The Lost Tapes”.

Atomic Guava – Peasants of the Future

Every djent and prog metal nerd out there should do themselves the favor of checking out this album, especially if they’re introverted and need some booster to break their inhibitions.

VolaLiveFromThePool

VOLA – Live from the Pool

The sound is as crystal clear as it’s bone-crushingly heavy when it needs to be. The light show and camera work is mesmerizing. And VOLA are playing hit after hit. What a show!

VoyagerThroughTime

Voyager – A Voyage Through Time

A voyage in 5 jackets and 7 albums: Voyager managed to capture the immense fun of their live shows for audiences around the world – and leave us craving for more.

Fractal Universe – The Impassable Horizon Alive

In these strange times and longer than expected restrictions, the possibility of safely attending a normal live gig still seems remote. There is light at the end of the tunnel although concerts booked keep getting postponed, some getting pushed back a year....
