Palace of Prog and AOR VI

Dear majestic friends, are you in the mood for some thinking man´s music? Well, good.

Swedish prog rock band Benesser´s new album Purpose and cause is now available on iTunes and Spotify, quality all the way folks.

Billy Sherwood has unveiled the first single and music video, “No Man’s Land,” from his album, CITIZEN via Frontiers Music.
Billy used three distinct sources for footage in “No Man’s Land”: 1) archival footage from World War I, 2) a cameraman taping him up-close and facing front in a brightly-lit room, 3) modern day footage of a tall and powerful looking young man being the runner. “That is David Hussey,” explains Billy. “He’s in the prog band XNA which I produced/recorded. We shot the footage in the desert behind my house.”
“No Man’s Land” appears on Billy’s upcoming album, CITIZEN, which is being released on November 6.


Alien singer Jim Jidhed will release his new solo album Tankar i vinternatten (in Swedish) on Nov 13. Check out a teaser video here.

Norwegian Art-rock progressive outfit Gazpacho are set to release their brand new studio album ‘Molok’ through Kscope on 23rd October 2015.
‘Molok’ the follow up to their acclaimed 201 album Demon sees the band continue to push the boundaries for creating the most complicated and strangest concepts for a record while simultaneously becoming the first band ever who are actively trying to destroy the universe with their album.
Listen to the new song Know your time from the upcoming album here.

He s absolutely true to his word.
