This is The Fierce & The Dead. Kinda prog, kinda post-rock. Very good indeed, very atmospheric.

New album is the wonderfully titled If It Carries On Like This We Are Moving To Morecambe.

I just listened to the EP Part 1 the other day. Its a single 18 minute track, but its excellent. I'm planning on buying the album too.

Matt Stevens, the guitarist, has some great acoustic instrumental albums on his Bandcamp, and they're name your price to download. Once I have some money, I'm going to donate, but they're worth checking out. I only listened to "Echo" but its very good.

Nice, and isn't post rock a type of prog anyway  tongue.gif

If It's good and I like it, it's prog, end of argument.

That's some pretty good stuff though   ohmy.gif

BIRDS AND BUILDINGS, Eclectic Prog from the USA from the same guy who brought you Deluge Grander. This cut is from the album Bantam To Behemoth and is called Birds Flying Into Buildings.
There's Magma in there and some Yes and Genesis, fusion, the kitchen sink.

Wallow in it's rich proggety goodness.

I like this. Nice to hear some no-apologies complicated prog. But it's very musical, too. I really like the section at 7:43.

I didn't like the sax at first, but it grew on me.

That's the Magma influence I think. I call this kind of Prog "kitchen sink music" as they throw everything into the mix. Not for everyday listening but great "head" music.

I'm sure they've been mentioned in other threads, but does anyone like Anathema? Their last album, We're Here Because We're Here is a must have. They have a new album called Falling Deeper coming out this fall of orchestral arrangements of their old doom/death stuff, which I'm not familiar with. One of the tracks is available to download here and its really good.

I love Anathema. I recently lashed out for the Special Edition of "WHBWH" complete with vinyl EP, t-shirt and 5.1 mix. The sound is a bit raw for a surround mix but the album is absolutely brilliant.
Have you seen the video for Dreaming Light?

I haven't seen any of their videos before. Thanks a lot for the link, its great!

I just recently became a fan after hearing that they would be opening for Blackfield in May. I was a little disappointed that the whole band couldn't make it to the US, but the acoustic show was enjoyable.

Von Hertzen Brothers, their 2011 album, Stars Aligned. These guys are very good.

Highly recommended.

Not bad, not bad. Sounded a bit like Arena, don't like any of their vocalists either.

Never got Arena meself.


Seriously impressed by all this Scandinavian prog of late. It's really atmospheric and very true to what I would call classic prog.

What's the view of it in PA Towers?

I may have mentioned them in another thread, but Gazpacho is a great band. They remind me of Hogarth-era Marillion. I have 2 of their albums, Night and Tick Tock (which I just got yesterday) and I like them a lot. Their music is very lush-sounding and textured but not extremely complex.

Great thread!  Good to know there's plenty of good music that doesn't suck.  16 years of parenthood have taken its toll on me as far as investigating prog music the last two decades.

Good to hear what I've been missing.

Dunno, they only let me patrol the dungeons.


We have a lot of Scandanavian members, always have, but I've always felt they preferred the heavier stuff. This looks like it is changing.
