Prognosis Festival

For a first time edition, Prognosis Festival held the bar very high whether it was with the line up and also all the additional events with conferences, masterclasses, signing sessions. Even though one could have wished for a better schedule with no overlapping bands, the line up was incredible to set up a first time event and create a unique festival signature. Incredible but safe, there were hardly any bands on the bill that the progressive metal fans had not heard of. And of course the hottest acts of the moment were headlining. But as a first time edition, better be safe than sorry!

Behind the scenes: Interview with sound engineer Ronnie Young

At The Progspace, we look behind the scenes and talk to technicians like Ronnie Young, sound engineer for Animals as Leaders, TesseracT and Plini. What Plini said about Ronnie : ” At this point, having Ronnie at front of house is as important to our live show as the musicians on stage. You could be the greatest band in the world, but without a front of house engineer that understands your music and how it should be presented to the audience sonically, the effect can be anything from underwhelming to disastrous. ” Click here to read more about him !

In 2018 we had an extraordinary number of quality releases, a real feast for all progressive music fans and lovers. As our team grew up, this list is a tad longer than before and it reflects very well how many releases were top of the top on so many diverse progressive genres mashups or combinations, or if you prefer, progressive sub-genres. From melodic to djent to doom to prog-death to piano-chamber music. There’s a bit for everyone! These are the favorites of our Progspace crew – our very personal short “best of” list, if you want – purely subjective, of course!

UK Tech Fest 2018 Festival Review

The festival runs over four days with more than fifty bands performing. In addition there are industry workshops. For the two of us, who were Tech Fest virgins, the festival was a very pleasant experience. The audience is lively, but very friendly and easy-going. The festival is extremely well run, bands being on time, and changeovers going smoothly and quickly. The staff is generally pleasant, smiling and helpful, something that rubs of on the audience, making it easy to meet new friends.

Kadinja – Ascendancy

It took me some time to get around this album but now I can say without a doubt that “Ascencandy” is a true raw gem mixing rough and heavy sounds with tight rhythm sections topped with amazing vocals. Based in Paris, it is the first full length album of the band and they have done a great job at pushing djent/tech metal to another level. 4/5 ★
