Signal Failure is the debut album by US progressive rock/metal duo Jake Rosenberg and John Dillon under the name In Progress. Mark Zonder (Slavior/ex-Fates Warning) plays drums on this album. The album is all about modern progressive rock with two central elements: synthesizer arpeggios and aggressive guitar chords. Sadly, instead [...]

Released as the fourth and final chapter in the Devin Townsend Project, Ghost displays Townsend’s courage in unveiling an album of truly uplifting and joyous music.

Published on: June 3, 2011

Over the years Riverside has become one of my favorite bands in the progressive rock and metal realm. It’s not like they’re doing anything radically different or particularly revolutionary, but their music has this delicate melancholic touch few others have. The band celebrates its tenth birthday this year and in [...]


Jakszyk, Fripp And Collins – A Scarcity Of Miracles

Reading the full name of this release – Jakszyk, Fripp And Collins With Levin And Harrison – A Scarcity Of Miracles – A King Crimson ProjeKct – leads to one central and almost unbelievable thought: this must be a new King Crimson album after all these years (the last album was [...]


The Fierce And The Dead – If It Carries On Like This We Are Moving To Morecambe

This is a curious one for me. If It Carries On Like This We Are Moving To Morecambe is an instrumental album by a three-piece band, one of whom happens to be Matt Stevens, the well-known (in not well-known circles) guitarist. Unusually, from what I can hear on this album, [...]


Thank You Scientist – The Perils Of Time Travel

Thank You Scientist is a seven piece band from New Jersey. They’re specialised in experimental rock much in the vein of King Crimson and Mr. Bungle, but with a pop music twist to it. One person on Twitter described their music as Dream Theater meets the Dave Matthews Band. It [...]


Porcupine Tree – In Absentia

Steven Wilson is a busy man. Besides being a much sought-after producer, he’s also active in several projects, including No-Man and Blackfield. However, his main band is Porcupine Tree. Together with the current line-up he recorded several highly acclaimed albums. The first album to include drummer Gavin Harrison is In [...]


Porcupine Tree – Fear Of A Blank Planet

2007 saw the release of Porcupine Tree’s Fear Of A Blank Planet. This concept album is made of six songs dealing with the problems and fears of today’s youth and has a melancholic but also very aggressive sound. The opening (also title) track starts with the clicking of a computer [...]


Porcupine Tree – Deadwing

Porcupine Tree have become one of the leading progressive rock bands over the last years since mastermind Steven Wilson started the band as a one-man-project in the late 80’s. Their 2005 release Deadwing offers a sonic journey from spacious soundscapes to compact and heavy songs that shows what this band [...]


King Crimson – The Power To Believe

It was time for King Crimson again in 2003 with the release of The Power To Believe featuring the same quartet which recorded the 2000 album The ConstruKction Of Light. One might assume that the sound might be similar but – this is one certain fact since the band’s first album [...]
