Progday Discovery M4

Happy progday! Swinging back to the darker side of prog, Heldon and Universal Totem Orchestra will lead us down a zany path filled with all sorts of diabolical fusions.
1Heldon
Stand By


"Heldon combines the sounds of King Crimson, Magma, and Tangerine Dream to create a truly forward-thinking, modern prog album, filled with gritty guitar-work, pulsing synthesizers, and tight grooves. After hearing Stand By, you too will facepalm your space mask and ask, 'Where has this been my entire prog-loving life?'" - Friday13th

2Universal Totem Orchestra
Mathematical Mother


"The 3rd outing from this adventurous Italian band delivers a sleek, dark sound characterized by sensitive operatic vocals, sprinklings of funky fusion, and miles upon miles of rock-solid, infectious groove. Ambient segues recalling Dead Can Dance (Elogio del Dubbio) fuse seamlessly with Zeuhl-like flights of rhythmic fury and atmospheric jazzy passages. The wildly varied whirlwind of an opener is worth the price of admission alone and the playful album centerpiece "Architettura Dell'Acqua" is every bit as jam-packed with expansive, symphonic Orffian bombast as any of the territory covered on Mekanïk Destruktïẁ Kommandöh. That is not to say, however, that any of the other songs should be skipped! If operatic vocals are not an immediate deterrent (I find them to be tastefully employed here), UTO’s creative arrangements and superb instrumental interplay are bound to leave you floored." - bnelso55
