Gleb Kolyadin - Water Movements

26 March, 2021
GlebKolyadin_WaterMovements

Last week, russian maestro Gleb Kolyadin (Iamthemorning) unexpectedly dropped this incredibly gorgeous piano album. A musical diary of sorts, “Water Movements” is a collection of different sketches from various years combined to one single stream. Cinematic, serene and soul-soothing, this is exactly the music I didn’t know I needed in these weird and confusing times (just like “A Chapter in Time”, a similar piano diary, released by Dream Theater’s Jordan Rudess in March). Gleb is a master of his craft, as his musical sketches shine brightly, and the compositions are simply beautiful in their simplicity. The fact that he is a virtuoso on his instrument should be widely known by now, and sometimes, the space between the notes, where they can breathe deeply, is just as important as the sound itself. Take a break from your worries and immerse yourself in the meditative grand piano sounds of Gleb Kolyadin’s “Water Movements”! Dario

Bruit ≤ - The Machine is Burning and now everyone knows it could happen again

02 April, 2021 | Elusive Sound
Bruit_TheMachineIsBurning

4 songs in 40 minutes: french instrumental post rockers of Bruit ≤ like to take their time building up momentum – but when they reach the climax, like in the opener ‘Industry’ and the quasi title track ‘The Machine is Burning’ around halfway into the song, their sound is as vast as space itself. They definitely know how to create a massive emotional impact, and despite myself not being the biggest fan of the post rock label in general, I was floored from the very first listen. Maybe because they are so much more than ‘just’ your average post rock. For maximum effect, listen with headphones and watch the live video of ‘The Machine is Burning’. Filmed and recorded in a church in their hometown of Toulouse, it even comes with added extra epicness courtesy of the church organ and a brass section. Go get this stunning album on Bandcamp today (as it’s Bandcamp friday), you won’t find it on major streaming services! Dario

Bones of the Earth - II: Eternal Meditations of a Deathless Crown

02 April, 2021
BonesOfTheEarth_EternalMeditation

This impression is just based on the two tracks the band had made available before release, as we were not sent a promo for this release, but these Americans decidedly made me perk up my ears, and take note. This album is a continuation of their 2019 debut. I’ve not listened to that one yet, but I will most definitely be checking that out as well. The band’s preferred style of sound is groovy as hell, sludgy doom with plenty of progressive details that makes the music never lose its grip on the listener. Vocals are growled screams with some frenetic, almost spoken, parts thrown in. What really elevates the band’s music, however, is the more laid back, atmospheric parts, like the one that starts about 02:05 into ‘The Empire Never Ended’. Cyclic and hypnotic stuff. If you enjoy bands like Intronaut, Mastodon or Anciients, you can’t really go wrong here. Rune

About the Author

Dario

Co-Founder of The Progspace - Dario discovered the world of Prog upon hearing "Shine on you crazy diamond" for the first time at the tender age of 12 around the turn of the millennium. Coming from a musical family and brought up with classical music, this seemed to be the logical next step. Attended the school of www.progulus.com from 2002, delving into both directions: catching up with the history of already more than 30 years of progressive music as well as always staying up to date with the newest prog sounds. He loves meeting like-minded people and enjoying live music at a concert somewhere in Europe.

Colin

Colin is a progressive metal drummer who currently plays with Ashbreather and Vicarious Reality. His introduction to prog was through his father with the likes of Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, and Rush back in 2007. As the years went by, he would eventually work on his taste to get into more extreme forms of prog, and now adores bands like Opeth, Persefone, Atheist, BTBAM, Serpent Column, Slugdge, and countless others.

Rune

Hailing from Trondheim, Norway, but currently living in France. Rune has been a fan of everything hard and heavy since he got his first real taste of music in the early 80's. Originally a fan of the more extreme genres of metal, like thrash, death and blackmetal, he always enjoyed the more technical, progressive and avant-garde side of music. When he's not working, collecting and listening to albums, or attending concerts, Rune enjoys one of his many other nerdy hobbies, including roleplaying games, video-games, comics, and sci-fi and fantasy literature.
