Almost a year and a half after the first one, I bring you a redesigned, brand new flowchart to one of my favorite bands – Anathema! Had to update it to include their latest record, but started from scratch since giving the band only one starting point didn’t feel like the right choice, so changed it to three.

Hope you find it useful! Continue reading

As weird a mix it might sound, this duo turn their talent for making passionate, heartfelt chamber music, with their love for prog – they’ve even covered Opeth songs.

The following song is the opener to their sophomore, one of my favorite albums of last year. The prog, and even some rock, is strong on this one.

I found this guy on Jamendo some years ago, and fell in love with his stuff, and been following closely since then. Although I really enjoy most of his albums and projects, I think “Pressure & Obsession” is his best output yet. Continue reading
Take Porcupine Tree, Marillion, Pink Floyd, add some electronic elements, and you may start to grasp the unique sound this 4-piece accomplished on The Dark Third – an album about the third of our lives we spend sleeping. Continue reading
