Poor Genetic Material

POOR GENETIC MATERIAL widmen sich auf „Here Now“ ganz philosophisch dem Augenblick

With the literary inspired albums "Island Noises" (2011) and "A Day In June" (2013), the German band around singer Philip Griffiths, son of the Beggars-Opera legend Martin Griffiths, and keyboarder Philipp Jaehne increasingly developed from an ambient formation to a prog and art rock band. Four years ago, PGM had set themselves the difficult task of making absence tangible in terms of sound. Now, on their new concept album "Here Now", they think about the quality of the moment. Guitarist Stefan Glomb gives information.

The streaming project BEHIND CLOSED DOORS sets creative impulses in the dreary everyday life of Corona

Das Streaming-Projekt BEHIND CLOSED DOORS setzt im tristen Corona-Livealltag kreative Impulse

The Corona crisis crippled the events industry overnight. Living room concerts are no real substitute and live concerts with seats, with appropriate safety distances and hygiene rules, are still only possible on a smaller scale depending on the location of the state. But the live industry is showing itself creative and is trying to master the difficult situation and restrictions with new concepts.


The debut of THE PROGRESSIVE SOULS COLLECTIVE is waiting with an exciting crowd of guests

Das Debüt von THE PROGRESSIVE SOULS COLLECTIVE wartet mit einer spannenden Gästeschar auf

Derek Sherinian and Kevin Moore (both ex-Dream-Theater), Aquiles Priester (ex-Angra), Luis Conte (Phil Collins, among others) and Conner Green (Haken): Florian Zepf was able to win them all for his project The Progressive Souls Collective. He himself, on the other hand, is a blank sheet in the scene. "I've been listening to all kinds of progressive music since I was a teenager, but I've been on the road in other genres in the meantime," says the guitarist and composer.

EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER - 50 Jahre ELP - Prog-Exzesse mit klassisch-europäischen Wurzeln

"Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends!" was the motto of the prog power trio. Musical pomp full of virtuosity, made for eternity and with the claim to set a visual mark was his trademark. ELP were thus among the leading pioneers of progressive rock. But what role did they play, especially in the years 1970 to 1973, compared to the other genre founders King Crimson, Genesis, Yes and the art rockers of Pink Floyd?


NEAL MORSE - From Saul to Paul

Neal Morse

NEAL MORSE - Vom Saulus zum Paulus

He is fascinated by biblical material: On his new solo album "Sola Gratia" the US-progger NEAL MORSE deals with the story of the apostle Paul. The parable of the prodigal son, the life of Martin Luther, finding meaning and faith have already been dealt with by him in concept albums. The idea of writing an album about the proverbial transformation of Saul, the persecutor of Christians, into a follower of Jesus and missionary Paul, Neal Morse had been pregnant for quite some time. After "Sola Scriptura" (2007), "Sola Gratia" is his second album, which is titled with a reformatory principle.

Peter Green (1946–2020) - Der sanfte Gigant

Next to Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton, he was the third great virtuoso of the electric guitar in the 60s: Peter Green became famous with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, founded Fleetwood Mac and gave the world song classics like "Albatross" and "Oh Well". In 1970, after little more than three years, he left the band and only appeared sporadically in the spotlight after that. An obituary for a mentally unstable genius who was one of the greats of the classic rock era.

The Pineapple Thief

THE PINEAPPLE THIEF - Wahrheit? Welche Wahrheit?

"Versions Of The Truth", the thirteenth studio album of The Pineapple Thief, is also the third one with Gavin Harrison on drums. Since the ace of drums has become a permanent member of Bruce Soord's long-lived new art rock band, the sound and arrangements have been refined, the music has become more atmospheric and suspenseful. The new work also invites again to a fascinating journey.
