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'.

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"

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"
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
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.

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"
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
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"
