Ckraft - Epic Discordant Vision

03 June, 2022 | self-released

Gregorian jazz metal? Not only with a saxophone, but also with an accordion? Yes! Spearheaded by accordionist Charles Kieny, French quintet Ckraft are about to mess up the instrumental prog metal scene for good with their aptly titled debut album “Epic Discordant Vision”. If you missed the exclusive premiere of title track about a month ago, you can still check it out right here! Did you miss our Progtalks interview with mastermind Charles Kieny? This way please! Or else, why don’t you choose one of the links below to listen to some more “Epic Discordant Vision”? Highly recommended to do either of the three right away. What they have Ckrafted is something special indeed! Dario

The Aristocrats With Primuz Chamber Orchestra

03 June, 2022 | BOING!
The Aristocrats with Primuz Chamber Orchestra

The Aristocrats need no introduction. The distinguished gentlemen and masters of their respective craft Guthrie Govan, Bryan Beller and Marco Minnemann are definitely regarded as some of the most accomplished players around these days and the music they play when they get together is just positively bonkers. Now add to that the epic sounds of an entire chamber orchestra, the polish Primuz Chamber Orchestra to be precise, and you get one of the best instrumental albums of the year so far, and perhaps the best The Aristocrats album to date. Read Bob’s full review right here and/or head over to Bandcamp to order your copy right away! Oh and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the next Progtalks episode with drumming legend Marco Minnemann next Wednesday! Dario

About the Author


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 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 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.
