Black Crown Initiate – Violent Portraits of Doomed Escape

“Violent Portraits of Doomed Escape” is the best thing they have released to date. It is hard to imagine them making anything much better, because this album is superb, but who knows. They have packed so much stuff into these nine tracks, I hear something new each time I play this album.

Bastian Per – Epic Journey

They play into many of the musical elements that prog has seen before, making consistent use of the Dream Theater DNA, but the way they put them together allows them to stand on their own.

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.
