Leprous, Agent Fresco and 22 – Live in Eindhoven. September 20, 2018

The prospect of witnessing again the magic that means Leprous and Agent Fresco live, joined by the unknown (for me) quartet 22, was an easy decision for me, I love this live package so much, as I knew we, the lucky ones there, were going to be gifted with such a massive energy and love for well made music flowing back and forth from the stage to the audience. And so it was!

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.

Poem, Damnations Day and White Walls Tour Review

Poem has the professionalism, stage presence, talent, and songwriting skills of a much bigger act, and I can only hope that festival organizers and the progressive community will give them the attention they deserve in the future. On the way out of the venue there were a lot of smiling faces and happy audience members, all in all, a night to remember.

Tour review: Malina 2017 – Leprous, Agent Fresco, Alithia and Astrosaur

With all the surprises, strong support (or co-headliner) acts and a Leprous performance that seemed out of this world, the “Malina” tour ranks on the top of the list of 2017, for some (like our Munich reviewer Dario!) even leaving behind the likes of the Ayreon Universe shows and Shattered Fortress, both among the highlights of the concerts roster of 2017 in Europe. Leprous are superstars, and deservedly so.
