Progressive Music Awards 2013: Vote For Your Limelight Choice Now!
Hands up who’s not voted in the Progressive Music Awards 2013 yet? Well, why not start with the Limelight category of the freshest-faced baby bands* in the genre today? *er, mainly
But who are they?
These young Israeli prog metallers have already begun to make an international noise, recently being accalimed by fellow Israelis Orphaned Land.
Championed by Between The Buried And Me and Knifeworld, these academic avant-proggers join the dots between RIO and Red.
The Fierce And The Dead
This North London quartet twist Fugazi and King Crimson into awe-inspiring instrumental shapes. Pronkers with attitude.
They’ve been voted best new band two years running in Prog Magazine. With their debut album Rubidium about to land on InsideOut, have Maschine got what it takes?
Sound Of Contact
With Simon Collins on vocals and drums they already have some pedigree. But Sound Of Contact’s debut album Dimensionaut seems to have impressed many.
Essentially the work of just one man, Robin Armstrong’s conceptual and musical visions seem perfectly in tune with modern progressive music’s approach.
Mixing Van der Graaf edginess with Dead Kennedys polemic, four angry young men unsettle with gloriously eccentric bombast.
Manchester brothers who smuggle mathily energised pysch rock beneath the cover of beards and plaid and a love of Jethro Tull. Cracking stuff.
Hailed by Marillion and now signed to Esoteric, this Swindon quartet boast ex-XTC guitarist Dave Gregory in their ranks and look destined to go far.
This young British quintet can do prog the heavy way, or are equally adept at melding their sound with an orchestra. So accomplished at such a young age!
Make sure your favourite gets recognised on September 3!
