    What I am listening to right now

    You might be interested to know that what I am listening to right now. That's a trivial reason of my decision to begin a new theme. Sure, a batch of old masters or illustrious groups will be familiar to prog-rock fans. But the other performers may not ring any bells for you immediately - therefore I’ll give you clues enough...

    THE SOURCE - 'All Along This Land'.

    ORA NOMBRO - 'Between Man and Machine'.

    What I am listening to right now-oro-nombro-jpg

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtbbzUjNvGU


    Strutterzine: 'ORA NOMBRO is a surprise band from Italy, because their CD ‘Between Man and Machine’ sounds like a high quality record, despite the fact this is a small independent release. The band is playing excellent melodic Progressive Rock/Metal, not really far away from ASTRA, SEVENTH WONDER and a little WONDERLAND (especially vocally!) meets VISION DIVINE can be heard too, yet the difference is that a lot of instrumental passages are present throughout the 9 long tunes included on the CD, which sound like DREAM THEATER meets ELP. The reason for that is this Milan/Italy based band is actually a threesome without a vocalist, but happily a few of the songs are done with vocals, thanks to vocalist PINO TOZZI stepping up to the mic here and we all know him from the excellent TIME MACHINE of course. The songs are slightly calmer here and there, so perhaps Progrock is more suitable, but also the fans who look for strong melodies should check out this CD, because this is really a very impressive melodic prog-rock album from start to finish, so something for everyone. A mix of mentioned bands is the best way to describe this and especially the trilogy suite of opener “Emotional Bug” is worth checking out'.

    Even mighty Pink Floyd could be proud with that.

    AD INFINITUM - 'Ad Infinitum' (1998).

    What I am listening to right now-ad-infinitum-eponymous-jpg

    Sounding very much like an album from 45 years previous, eponymous Ad Infinitum album is filled with the staples of classic progressive rock. That features even the cover art by Roger Dean.

    NORTH STAR - 'Extremes' (2004).

    What I am listening to right now-north-star-extremes-art

    Some reviewers describe the music of this Pennsylvania-based act as 'marriage of Genesis and ELP'.

    Give a listen and decide for yourselves.
