The Progspace Online Festival 2021

Author: Rune

Fatal Fusion – Dissonant Minds

Fatal Fusion really comes into their own with their longer, extended compositions. They never lose the grip on the listener and manage to create a varied and diverse experience, while maintaining a red thread for you to follow. There really is an abundance of haunting melodies or catchy hooks on “Dissonant Minds”.

Döda Havet – Tid och rum

After several listens, it starts to become clear how rich and detailed the music of Döda Havet really is. The songs are all layered with delicate melodies supported by a warm hearty pulse perfectly applied on top of a rock-solid rhythmic foundation.

Pixie Ninja – Colours Out Of Space

If you are interested in music that is out of the ordinary, brimming with weirdness, quality and progressiveness in the true sense of the word I heartily recommend you listen to “Colours Out Of Space”. Just be careful of delving too deep, dear listener, because, to quote the master, H.P.Lovecraft himself, “We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

Mobius – Kala

“Kala” is a fantastic sophomore full-length offering from Mobius. It’s filled with surprising twists and turns, innovative songwriting and a refreshing take on progressive metal and djent. There is a sense of time moving forward, towards the future with this album, and personally, it is a future I’m looking very much forward to”.

Oceanica – OneDark

Oceanica is worth paying attention to, as there’s brilliance and innovation happening on the album that I don’t often feel I hear in modern, more formulaic, progressive music. If you are the kind of listener who enjoys challenging music and love to be surprised by twists and turns, I highly recommend you to check out “OneDark”.

Kyros – Celexa Dreams

Kyros has with “Celexa Dreams” managed to do something quite unheard of. They have created an album of music that would not have been out of place in the era they draw inspiration from, but yet manage to fit their compositions into a modern, contemporary framework.

Mantric – False Negative

When Mantric are at their best, they are a powerhouse, combining progressive, electronic and extreme music into a dynamic and brilliant display of prog-metal.

The Night Watch – An Embarrassment of Riches

“Being a concept album about someone shipwrecked in a lonely and inhospitable place, I could easily see “An Embarrassment of Riches” being part of the soundtrack to a film, or maybe even better, accompanying one of those old black and white silent movies. The music tells its story so beautifully without the need for words or explanation. As a listener you are taken on a ride that vividly paints the isolation and turmoil that this marooned individual goes through both in mind and body”.

Scarlet Stories – Necrologies

Scarlet Stories is not overtly technical prog, even though the talent of the musicians is very much noticeable, their focus seems to be on melodies, moods and atmosphere, as well as a very strong inclination to bring the listener into their mysterious world, through the medium of music and lyricism. It very much feels like “Necrologies” could be the soundtrack to a collection of fantastic and gothic novels by Stoker, Shelley or Poe.

Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard – Yn Ol I Annwn

With “Yn Ol I Annwn”Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard has succeed in creating an album that is partly delicate and partly robust and powerful. The mix of Black Sabbath-like riffing and space-rockish, psychedelic keyboard and effects, is straight out if the handbook of godfathers of the genre, like Hawkwind or Omega, but the band does so with a very heavy, substantial, organic, and modern sound.

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!

Spires – A Parting Gift

The band weave grand tapestries with sound, and manage to make their complexity sound easy and accessible, something that is quite a feat in itself. I will definitely be returning to “A Parting Gift” on a regular basis, and I could not recommend it highly enough to anyone who has more than the slightest interest in progressive music. Get hold of this album! 5/5 ★

Nauticus – Disappear in Blue

Trust me, you are doing yourself a disservice if you don’t give ‘Disappear in Blue’ the attention it deserves. It’s a delightful mix, saturated with post-metal, sludge, doom, avant-garde and progressive music.

The Progspace List 2018

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!
