Gleb Kolyadin – Gleb Kolyadin

Those who follow the Russian prog-chamber duet Iamthemorning know very well that Gleb Kolyadin, is not only a masterful pianist, he is as well an excellent composer. But his qualities as composer and pianist truly shine on this, his first solo album, an album where he explores a search of identity in a unique storyline. This album is a perfect card into the musical palette of an excellent young musician. It draws a big ear to ear smile in my face to hear and see that there is so much talent everywhere in the world. Gleb Kolyadin adds so much color to our favorite music by creating this jewel of an album with the ink of a classical music background perfectly blended into the modern progressive rock palette. 5/5 ★

Perfect Beings – Vier

“Vier” is not easy listening at all, it needs time, attention and an open mind to dig into your ear and brain. Once you allow that, you are rewarded with unfolding beauty, new things to discover on every spin and classy melodies that remain.

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 ★

Premiata Forneria Marconi – Emotional Tattoos

“Emotional Tattoos” is a very professional and delightful listening experience, where you are expertly guided through P.F.M’s musical universe by some of the most experienced musicians you could ever ask for. Anyone with an interest in the symphonic and progressive music of the 70’s would do well to give this album a bit of their attention and time.

Virgil & Steve Howe – Nexus

The very diverse and extense musical expertise of both musicians, and that connection only father and son can have, can be felt through all the songs. The result is this beautiful album. Very different to what you could expect, not progressive rock, but with a lot of elements from it, and a varied array of styles. A legacy and a family effort from start to finish. 3/5★

Wobbler – From Silence to Somewhere

“From Silence to Somewhere” is Wobbler’s 4th studio album, yet another solid step in a short but highly acclaimed discography. True to their origins and influences, the Norwegians continue their musical career in a display of musicianship and well-matured compositions both with complex and simple arrangements with melodies that will stick in your head. Only 4 songs for a total of 47 minutes of Prog-grandiose. From beautiful Mellotron solos and edgy guitar riffs, to renaissance inspired passages to odd touches of flamenco and latin grooves to Italian recitals. This album has it all! A combination of elements and sounds that will surely find a place in the heart of any prog-lover of bands the likes of Gentle Giant, Yes, ELP, King Crimson, Genesis, PFM, etc. 5/5★
