Great! bal3x listening to some recent prog. :) :thumbsup:
Well, doing my best :) btw, do you have any recs for some great recent symphonic prog? Or some avant, psych-prog? Eclectic, jazz-rock, fusion maybe?

I suck at determining sub-genres, so I wouldn't know what qualifies. Any references?

Have a look at prog sub-genres on http://www.progarchives.com/ - all those are there that I mentioned. I can go by top lists as well. Here's the 2000s one, perhaps you can pick some from here: http://www.progarchives.com/top-prog-al ... =2014#list
also perhaps you can recommend something from this list (it's a hidden gems list):

I'm surprised that joachimt didn't buy the new Meshuggah album yet.
My father didn’t have the skill of a professional cameraman. The result? Avant-garde cinema.

Did you listen to it yet?

The band was always just alright to me; enjoyable but forgettable, and this album felt the same to me. It's just, it's so cookie-cutter djent. A slightly dissonant riff that's usually an open chord, the drummer hitting the same cymbal all the time, and the bass drum going along with the guitar riff.

Although if you are a huge fan of them then I'm sure you'll love this.

EDIT: The limited edition of my all time favourite album finally shipped though :woot: soon I can die a happy man.

I've listened to parts of it. Enough to know I'll love this again, just like their previous albums.

Have you listened much to the new Mastodon album yet? I've been hearing the single "Show Yourself" a lot lately and it sounds very alt-rock/modern rock radio-friendly, they seem to be getting less heavy. Though I'm not exactly a Mastodon expert or super-fan.

Listened to it twice, but not even entirely. Not enough to have an opinion, but I liked it enough to buy it.

Yesterday I bought two new cd's.

Anathema - The Optimist
I have to admit I didn't even listen to it before buying it. I love all their albums from the last 20 years, so reading about this was enough push to buy it.



Millionaire - Sciencing
Belgian alternative rock band back after 12 years!

Haken - Aquarius
This album was released in 2010, but has been out of stock for quite a while. Since Haken became more well known from their album The Mountain fans asked for a rerelease. The original costs 80-100 euros online. A few month ago it was rereleased finally. :)

I distinctly remember that band's name and covers, and I think I even gave their albums a spin ~8 years ago when I was at the end of my prog phase, but I can't recall anything about the actual music. A bit metally, right?

I might have to try again someday.

Not metal at all. What is it called? Jazz/Fusion whatever...

New album by Eels: "Deconstruction"



Belgian singer-songwriter Jasper Steverlinck, new solo album "Night Prayer"



And now for something completely different......

Fleddy Melculy - De kerk van Melculy

This was just too much fun not to buy. The metal isn't all that special, but the Flemish lyrics are hilarious. I posted this clip before: "668 (de buurman van the beast)"
......indeed, the neighbour of the beast. :lol:
