BEST SELLING ITEMS NOW IN STOCK
www.progrock.co.uk

CITIZEN CAIN - Skies Darken / PRICE: GBP 9.99
This is Citizen Cain's sixth and most powerful release yet, and their first album for over 10 years. Citizen Cain originate from Scotland, and feature Stewart Bell (keyboards/drums), Cyrus (bass/lead vocals) and Phil Allen (guitars/backing vocals). Cyrus’s vocals will always be reminiscent of Peter Gabriel, yet the band sound fresh and original on today's Prog scene, going to places in their music that few band's can. Yes, there are the occasional Genesis references, but Skies Darken pushes the boundaries further than on any other release, maintaining melodies throughout. It's a dark album that draws you in, and holds you there...highly recommended! Hear the track 'The Hunting Of Johnny Eue' from the new CD at www.progrock.co.uk/player.htm.

GALAHAD - Battle Scars / PRICE: GBP 10.99
Following on from the hugely impressive ‘Empires Never Last’, the new album contains even more diversity and ventures further in to a few musical territories just touched upon on ‘Empires’. Their most contemporary sounding album with a few nods to the past! Includes a bonus 2012 re-recording of 'Sleeper', one of Galahad's old classics, to celebrate their 25 years plus of making music.

FLOWER KINGS - Banks Of Eden (Special edition CD+CD Enhanced Digipak) / PRICE: GBP 14.99 (special edition) / GBP 10.99 (standard)
This is an impressive way to announce the band's return after five long years of silence! 'Banks Of Eden' is a magnificent musical mix of symphonic progressive rock with jazz and blues with influences of Frank Zappa, The Beatles, Igor Stravinsky, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Yes and Genesis. The CD opens with a 25 minute epic entitled ‘Numbers’, a song that represents both what’s new in the band and what the fans would expect from The Flower Kings. And whilst all the familiar elements are contained within the five songs on this album, there are several unexpected twists and turns!

HEADSPACE - I Am Anonymous (Ltd Edition Digipak) / PRICE: GBP 11.99
This is the full length debut of British progressive metal band HEADSPACE. The band members are Adam Wakeman (son of Rick and a member of Ozzy Osbourne’s band), Damian Wilson (Threshold, Arjen Lucassen), Lee Pomeroy (Rick Wakeman’s ERE, It Bites), Pete Rinaldi and Richard Brook. Influences include Rush, Yes, Genesis, Dream Theater. “I Am Anonymous” is a song-oriented welcome breath of fresh air in the Prog metal scene.

Highly melodic - for fans of IQ, Genesis, Galleon, Mangrove and Pendragon.

OVERHEAD - Of Sun And Moon / PRICE: GBP 10.99

ECHOLYN - Echolyn (2 CD) - GBP 12.99
The excellent brand new 2 CD studio album from Echolyn.

NO-MAN - Love And Endings / PRICE: GBP 10.99
Love And Endings is a document of No-Man's powerful performance in front of a sell-out crowd at the Leamington Spa Assembly on 14th October 2011. Retaining the intimacy and sophistication of the band's studio work while possessing an edgy Rock attack absent from much of its recorded output, the duo of Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) were joined by classical violinist Steve Bingham and regular collaborators Michael Bearpark, Andrew Booker, Stephen Bennett and Pete Morgan. Shot by Australian film-maker Dion Johnson, the concert is available as a CD/DVD presented in a deluxe digi-pack

QUIDAM – Saiko / PRICE: GBP 10.99
Brand new release by Polish band.

BELIEVE - Seeing Is Believing (DVD) / PRICE: GBP 14.99
The second live DVD by Believe, the band formed by guitarist Mirek Gil – the former leader and composer of Polish Prog-rock legend Collage. The material on 'Seeing Is Believing' was recorded in November 2011 in Wyspianski Theatre in Katowice, Poland, and consists of much of the material from their last studio album 'World Is Round'.

ASIA - XXX (Special edition CD+DVD) / PRICE: GBP 13.99 (special edition) / GBP 11.99 (standard)
This is the third release since the reunion of the original line-up of Asia featuring Geoff Downes, Steve Howe, Carl Palmer and John Wetton. Produced again by Mike Paxman (who also worked on the band’s latest effort "Omega"), "XXX" (pronounced Triple X) is being hailed as ASIA's best album since its classic early 80s releases. Artwork for the album has been specifically designed by the acclaimed artist Roger Dean. Available as a limited edition CD + DVD, or standard CD release.

BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST - Live In Concert At Metropolis Studios London (CD+DVD) / PRICE: GBP 10.99
A dual format live performance from one of Europe's foremost "progressive" rock bands.

ARJEN ANTHONY LUCASSEN - Lost In The New Real (Limited 2CD Mediabook) / PRICE: GBP 14.99
Includes contrasting styles such as Prog, rock, folk, metal, industrial, and even pop, arguably making this Arjen’s most eclectic-sounding album to date. As Arjen’s fans have come to expect, informative and humorous ‘behind the scenes’ videos are added to both CDs.

AFFECTOR - Harmagedon (Ltd Edition Digipak) / PRICE: GBP 11.99
AFFECTOR are the highly skilled, new international band consisting of German guitar-player Daniel Fries, Dutch drummer Collin Leijenaar (NEAL MORSE, DILEMMA) as well bass player Mike LePond (SYMPHONY X) and vocalist Ted Leonard (SPOCK'S BEARD, ENCHANT, THOUGHT CHAMBER), both from the United

ASTRA - The Black Chord / PRICE: GBP 10.99
Much anticipated second album from this hotly tipped progressive rock band. Like a Meddle-era ‘Floyd supercharged by a Mahavishnu-intensity! This is a record at home in 1972 as it is in 2012. Think wailing guitars and dulcet harmonies thickened by Mellotron and given hypnotic qualities by the kind of drumming that borders on the shamanic. Cinematic in scope but frequently yielding to a kind of melodic fragility that can only be the product of genuine emotion!

ANATHEMA - Weather Systems / PRICE: GBP 10.99
The brand new studio album from Anathema, the follow-up to 2010’s 'We're Here Because We're Here'. That album featured prominently in numerous end-of-year polls and the producer, Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), has described it as 'definitely among the best albums I’ve ever had the pleasure to work on.'. Daniel Cavanagh from the band, feels that Weather Systems will surpass even this!

LANDMARQ - Entertaining Angels - Special Edition / PRICE: GBP 14.99
Limited release to give Landmarq fans a chance to grab something extra. This special issue is called "Entertaining Angels - Special Edition" and includes the new album plus a bonus disc, in its own separate sleeve, that contains the tracks that they were unable to squeeze onto the main album. All wrapped up in a 'Special Edition' slip cover.

IT BITES - Map Of The Past (Special edition 2 CD) / PRICE: GBP 13.99 (standard version: GBP 9.99)
Following on from the highly-acclaimed Tall Ships, It Bites return with their first concept album in a career that spans 25 years. Inspired by the discovery of an old family photograph, Map of the Past is a highly personal journey that explores love, passion, jealousy, anger, remorse and loss through the eyes of a previous generation. Written by John Mitchell and John Beck over the course of 2011, and features Bob Dalton on drums and Lee Pomeroy on bass.

CHRIS FRY – Composed / PRICE: GBP 9.99
'Composed' is the long awaited solo CD from the Magenta guitarist Chris Fry. The CD features 10 self penned instrumentals that show off the extraordinary skill and variety of playing styles of this gifted guitarist. Chris makes use of a varied selection of different guitars to make each track unique and captivating. Alongside orchestration by fellow Magenta band member Rob Reed and the solo violin playing of Emily Travis, Chris has managed to weave strong melodic content with virtuoso playing.

WINTER IN EDEN - Echoes Of Betrayal / PRICE: GBP 9.99
Second CD playing excellent heavy Prog with great female vocals

RPWL - Beyond Man And Time / PRICE: GBP 11.99
RPWL's first concept CD. "The goal is to open eyes, look further, see more, and see differently. Words that everybody approves of are not going to lead to progress. We call that: "deadlock of the spirit." Too many approaches of our time disappear in the void of the equal and the conformist. This piece does not want to be conformist, the exact opposite. It is a plea for original thinking, for dissent, for liberation. A plea. No poetry. No science." (Yogi Lang)

SYLVAN - Sceneries (2 CD) / PRICE: GBP 14.99
The bands eighth and brand new CD! With over 90 minutes of music, this album full of epic songs drenched in emotion, full of deep lyrics brought to the stage with powerful vocals, brilliant piano and keyboards, amazing new guitar sounds, warm bass, and powerful drums

STEVE THORNE - Crimes and Reasons / PRICE: GBP 10.99
New CD, following the excellent 'Into The Ether'. Includes Tony Levin (bass), Nick D'Virgilio (drums), Martin Orford (flute), Gary Chandler (guitar), Bob White (drums). Martin Orford plays flute on two tracks (briefly coming out of retirement from music).

MOON SAFARI - The Gettysburg Address (2 CD) / PRICE: GBP 14.99
The brand new double live CD from the excellent Swedish band Mood Safari! Recommended!

IOEARTH - Moments - GBP 11.99
'Moments' is the second full studio album by IOEarth. Dave Cureton & Adam Gough have pushed their composition skills to a whole new level with this exquisitely crafted release.

VARIOUS - Lions & Fables: Verglas Music CD Sampler 1 - GBP 3.99
VARIOUS - Dreams & Visions: Verglas Music CD Sampler 2 - GBP 3.99

Steve Wilson - the continuing story....

Thick as a Brick (the original album, not the somewhat insipid 2012 follow-up) will be re-released on November 5th, in 5.1 sound:

https://www.burningshed.com/store/jethrotull/

The bad news? The price - GBP 21.

That's a bit ridiculous, given the much more reasonable 5.1 edition of ELP's Tarkus that was released recently.

I understand that this will not be a prog album but a hybrid of different styles. I am not the biggest fan of Alan's voice which is a little weak, particularly in a live setting. The new singer with Pallas is a much better vocalist and having seen him live, he can perform to a high standard.

However, this is a new chapter in Alan's career and it remain interesting to hear what he has come up with. I have heard the EP which did not rock my world so maybe the album will be more interesting.

Completely agree. £21 for an album - even in 5.1 - is rather steep. They must be hoping that there are enough JT fans out there with 5.1 surround systems.

I'm a big JT fan but don't have 5.1 surround so I suppose I will save some money grin

Unitopia


Hello Unitopians,

Finally, after the long wait and some hard work on our part, we have some great news! This journey with Covered mirror has been a rather difficult one. We needed to find the best way to promote and distribute it. Meanwhile some of us had to deal with illness or personal issues as you already know. We were as eager to release it as you were to get your hands on it.

Musea Records and Bird’s Robe Records

We are now proud to announce that Musea Records from France will produce and distribute Covered Mirror for us all over Europe, Japan and USA and will also distribute One night in Europe. Musea was founded November 1985 and has done nothing but grow to a very successful and respectable Label. We are proud to be a part of the Musea family! Bird’s Robe Records will take care of the Australian distribution for both items as well. This young and dynamic Australian Label was behind our last Australian tour and we are excited to be working with them again.

You will also be able to get your copy of Covered mirror from us through our website.

Covered Mirror release date

Covered Mirror release date is October 31st in Europe, Japan and North America and December 1st in Australia.

I was not aware that Flying Colors is touring Europe with Beardfish. Just purchased Beardfish's new album and was checking out their website www.beardfishband.com

There are some pretty cool videos of the tour on there. Check 'em out! cool

My only experience of Beardfish has been seeing them on this tour... I liked them in parts, but sometimes I thought they just included too many different parts in their songs and the melodies never really grabbed me. However, that might have been because I was hearing the songs for the first time....

I enjoyed "South of the Border" if I recall correctly. I think that song had an interesting punchline to it...!

Sleeping In Traffic: Part Two and Mammoth are my fave albums by Beardfish. Some fans like Destined Solitaire, but it's just too long at 80 minutes and never really goes anywhere. The SIT and Mammoth albums, though, are amazing IMO. The singer reminds me of Jack Black for some odd reason. They are definitely a band you have to 'get into' in order to enjoy their music. But for me, it's worth the effort smiley
