Here are some great tunes mostly from bands I’ve recently discovered, and a few I keep rediscovering.
1. Bullitts Dominae by Pure Reason Revolution — This song has a grip on me. I love it!
2. Longings End by Parzival’s Eye
3. Colours by Airbag — If you haven’t heard Airbag you’ve got to hear this.
4. Winter Dawn by Tiamat
5. Meredith by Oceansize
6. Paper Waves by The Gathering
7. Father Bachus by Focus — Sounds Jethro Tull-ish
8. Sole Survivor (Live) by Asia — Great live version of this song.
9. Homesick by Airbag — Beautiful sad song.
Hello, it’s about time to return to the music, and to progressive rock with a leaning toward art-prog-whatever. I love this genre that I just made up and I think you will too, starting with the beautiful, melodic, and somewhat out of character “The Nurse Who Loved Me” by A Perfect Circle. Enjoy.
1. The Nurse Who Loved Me by A Perfect Circle
2. Some Warmth Into This Chill by Nosound
3. Wasted Land by RPWL
4. Full Circle Poetry by Magic Pie
5. The One You Are Looking For is Not Here by Katatonia
6. Hell Freezes Over IV by Gazpacho
7. Snowdrops by The Pineapple Thief
8. Longings End by Parzival’s Eye (A lesser known RPWL spinoff band)
9. The First Rebreather by Big Big Train
10. Impression I by Lunatic Soul (a Riverside project)
Hope you enjoyed that and I hope that it will encourage you to explore these bands and related bands to really discover what they’re all about.
We are long overdue for another awesome Mad Playlist of the Day devoted entirely to Prog Rock. Here are some of my current favorites:
1. Voyage 34 by Porcupine Tree (England)
2. Evidence by Katatonia (Stockholm, Sweden)
3. Thin Air by Anathema (Liverpool, England)
4. Recipe for Disaster by Delusion Squared (France)
5. Waiting Room by Abigail’s Ghost (live Rosfest 2009) (NOLA, USA)
6. Lunatic Soul by Lunatic Soul (Warsaw, Poland)
7. Tungsten Blues by The Third Ending (Tasmania, Australia)
8. The Walk Part II by Gazpacho (Oslo, Norway)
9. Ok by Riverside (Warsaw, Poland)
10. Estonia by Marillion (Aylesbury, England)
Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! That being said, I’m not going to do a thematic playlist with Irish bands. I’d only insult the Irish with my lack of knowledge. Tonight let’s do more progressive rock ok? Any requests?
1. Sever Tomorrow by Porcupine Tree
2. Tiny Monsters by Puscifer (Ok that’s heavy metal)
3. Sellout by Abigail’s Ghost (Ok that’s borderline heavy metal)
4. Miss You by Blackfield
5. Snowdrops by The Pineapple Thief
6. Living in the Past by Riverside
7. The Outsider by A Perfect Circle
This is a very moving tribute to Porcupine Tree, which they’ve also posted on their FB page.
