North of South – The Dogma and the Outsider EP

North of South’s new EP “The Dogma and the Outsider” is a release I can surely recommend. A varied record that includes collaborations with names like Kobi Farhi (Orphaned Land), Anna Murphy (Cellar Darling , ex- Eluvetie) and Zuberoa Aznárez (Diabulus in Musica). I find several elements on their music, if developed in the right direction, could help the band get established as one to keep an eye on for the future.

Leprous – Pitfalls

With “Pitfalls”, Leprous created by far the most complex album in their discography, it is something else, is an album that marks a before and after, not only in their discography, but I dare to say in the progressive genre. The intricately layered sound and emotions are something to behold: this album is a difficult journey and a different one, at times filled with anger or hope. As varied as the human mind can be, Leprous created this musical journey as a reflection of these contradictory emotions. /Van 4.5/5★

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!

Few times I listen to an album that I’m sure will be in my top 5 of the year. This is exactly what happens every time with “The Persistence”. Yes it is THAT good. Kingcrow is a band that without much noise in the prog world, have slowly established themselves among the best out there. 5/5 ★ Van

The Pineapple Thief – Dissolution

The Pineapple Thief’s “Dissolution” is an excellent album that present to us a current and difficult concept, which blends simple melodies with complex song structures in a masterful way. An easy to listen and very enjoyable album that seems to make an useless effort to conceal the prowess each band member show on their instruments. Out 31st Aug 2018 via Kscope. ★4/5 Van
