Revisiting Prog #2

So ive been moving back a bit into progressive territory, again. Exploring the everlasting fountain of good Progressive music from all around the world, and these are basically some recently found gems that i thought deserved a mention. Its mostly Symphonic Prog( because its my favorite type), but i believe i managed to squeeze some other interesting stuff in here aswell. So Prog- heads, get to listenin'.
1Camel
Moonmadness


My favorite prog-album of all time and one that i never seem to get tired of, no matter how high the listen-count seem to get. Filled with plenty of memorable melodies and amazing display of musicianship. Something that should appeal to most people. Try "Song Within a Song", "Spirit of the Water" and "Lunar Sea".
2Premiata Forneria Marconi
Storia di un Minuto


Great group of musicians and one of the pioneering bands of the 70:s Prog movement in Italy. Storia di un Minuto is an overall great and very accessible album following the classic formula of Symphonic prog. Try "Impressioni di Septembre" and "Dove... Quando" part 1 and 2.
3Big Big Train
The Underfall Yard


Great modern-sounding progressive rock with splendid instrumentation and vox. Also featuring some really good drum-work by Nick D'Virgilio. Try "Master James of St George", "Last Train" and "The Underfall Yard"
4Carnascialia
Carnascialia


Im not 100% sure how to describe this, but id say you could call it Prog-Folk or perhaps a quirky kind of avant-garde folk. Either way it sounds splendid. The vocals are quite unique and are often used as a kind of instrument instead of just a basic voice uttering words. Try "Kaitain" and "Canzone numero Uno"
5Gazpacho
March of Ghosts


A group of musicians haling from Norway playing a really interesting type of Crossover-Prog. "March of Ghosts" is their latest effort and the best album ive heard by them. Try "Hell Freezes over I", "Gold Star" and "Mary Celeste".
6Redemption
The Fullness of Time


Great, great progressive Metal reminiscent to Fates Warning and to some extent Dream Theater. The album features none other than Fates Warning's own lead vocalist Ray Alder on vocals. Try "Sapphire", "Parker's Eyes" and the title track.
7Nexus
Metanoia


Great progressive rock group haling from Argentina. Sounds a bit like Rush mixed with Camel. Try "Despertar Dentro De Un Sueño", "Planeta Herido" and "En Las Manos De Dios"
8O Terco
Criaturas Da Noite


Great ole' 70:s Symphonic prog all the way from Brazil. Try "1974" and "Jogo Das Pedras"
9Wobbler
Rites at Dawn


Cool, modern symphonic prog from Norway and one of my favorite albums atm. Sounds like a great mix of Yes and Änglagård. Try "In Orbit" and "La Bealtaine"
10The Third and the Mortal
Painting On Glass


Im having a really hard time putting these guys into a specific genre, since their sound spans quite a big variety of genres. id say its kind of a big mix of ambient, metal and folk that sounds amazingly cool. Try "Persistent and Fleeting", "Dreamscapes" and "Eat the Distance"
