Opeth - In Cauda Venenum

They tend to be on the heavy side for me but on 1st play this sounds a little more up my street. It took me a long time to get Pain Of Salvation who I tend to put in the same box so this might be the turning point for me.

Swedish band with Mum, Dad and 2 children with additional help thrown in. Don’t know why (my bad) but the family thing didn’t sit too well in my head when I first heard / read about them, but they’ve really grown on me.

Another excellent 2019 release. It’s been a great year for new prog with plenty more to come in the last Qtr I’m sure.

And finally - another new album, this one from Brazil.

Decent instrumental prog, getting rave reviews, possibly (uncharitably) in part because they are, for the genre at least, a bunch of very young musicians.

Stratus Luna - s/t

Yes. It has some fantastic tracks on it - although I have never been a massive fan of the title track.

Dutch band Knight Area’s 7th album - D-Day.

They are heavy neo prog, edging into metal at times and the new singer fits the music very well. A fair bit of spoken word including Churchill. Not normally a fan of that but it works well here.

As with everything they’ve released it is a very decent album.

The Gift - Antenna

Loved the 1st 2 albums but they seem to be moving away from the style I enjoyed so much. This is more mainstream rock than prog and not really appealing to me much.

Especially the title track. I think that’s my favourite of his.

Maybe although I generally think Acolyte has the edge

As opposed to Preludin', the anti-Prog Corner message board?

They hate the Prog threads over there. They talk about it a lot. Coan and Dougie especially.

EDIT: I answered this on my phone. I thought it was a PM.
