Prog 2013

Some of my favorite prog releases of 2013 (and a couple of 2014 snuck in there).
1The Wrong Object
After The Exhibition

Belgian band. Jazz-fusion in an aggressive style. Some great stuff on here.
2Unreal City (Italy)
La Crudelta Di Aprile

New RPI band from Northern Italy, grand and operatic with 70's style.
3Birds And Buildings
Multipurpose Trap

Eclectic prog, if you like King Crimson and Gentle Giant and don't mind a bit of zeuhl
thrown in then check it out. Album is a real grower.
4Guillaume Perret
Doors EP

Brilliant fusion from French electric sax maestro.
5Fatal Fusion
The Ancient Tale

70's style prog. Very likeable.
6Fright Pig
Out of the Barnyard

Real mix of stuff from heavy prog riffing to trad folk melodies. Very entertaining and a bit
bonkers (in a good way).

Excellent heavy space rock from Turkey.
8Days Between Stations
In Extremis

Highly polished symphonic stuff. Some beautiful compositions. Wakeman, Levin play on it.
On The Edge

Decent Polish prog. Maybe a bit formulaic but give it a whirl you might like it.
Despite Guardian Angels

Some beautiful melodies, organic sounds with a mix of modern and retro, if you like Marillion
or stuff like Gazpacho you might dig this.
11Sky Architect
A Billion Years of Solitude

Dutch heavy prog. A bit like Haken and Riverside. Not bad.
12 Three Monks
The Legend of the Holy Circus

Some nice RPI from the back end of 2013. Keyboard centric noodlings with a dark
atmosphere. Lots of pipe-organ. ELPish.
13Oceans 5
Return To Mingulay

Sort of folk/space-rock with a sea-shanty feel. Pretty good if you are in the mood.
14Vienna Circle
Silhouette Moon

A bit twee but some very pleasant proggy tunes for frosty mornings. Mostly relaxing
15Orphaned Land
All Is One

Not up there with Mabool but pretty damn fine release from Israeli prog-metal band.
Echo Street

Quite a change in style from previous albums but still enjoyable. Shimmering space
17Teeth of the Sea

Electronic/post-rock with a techno vibe. Some mesmerising beats on here.
Shrine of New Generation Slaves

Bit of a change of direction adding some more bluesy hard rock to their sound. Really
enjoyable and more accessible than previous releases.
The Mountain

Well known, nothing to add.
20Steven Wilson
The Raven That Refused to Sing

Well known, nothing to add.
