That is cool! Do you have any good playlists made by you to follow? This is the best genre in the world.
I also suggest progmetalzone on Spotify - check out this profile - he posts monthly playlists of songs from new prog. rock albums of the genre available on Spotify.
Riverside had the best album last year for me and this year it is Haken's Affinity so far but some very cool bands will come out shortly with new materials this year - Fates Warning, DGM, Teramaze, etc.
BTW - did you check the new Frost*? Just came out on 27th May - available on Spotify. Pretty good.
I have listened to some parts of the new Frost album, I've yet to finish it but so far I've liked what I've heard! Riverside, especially with all the acclamation they've been getting lately, are not only staying awesome but rising in popularity. Love, Fear, And The Time Machine did not disappoint the high expectations I had built up for the band. DGM, Fates Warning, and Teramaze are all great and I am really excited for their upcoming material!
Indeed - you have covered the 3 most anticipated albums I am aware currently for the rest of the year. In addition I fully agree with all your words in regards to Riverside's 'Love, Fear and the Time Machine'. This album should be known by everyone - simply a classic and with their 'softer approach' the album has lots of treasures for people who may wish to listen to material which is easier to digest. And beyond the surface - the whole is a beauty.
Ok - happy waiting to the stuff mentioned and upcoming shortly!
Old school! How can you have a list and not have Pink Floyd on there? Also, Genesis, Yes, Rush, King Crimson, Jethro Tull, Moody Blues, ELP, Marillion, Renaissance, Camel, Gentle Giant, Van der Graaf Generator, and of course Rick Wakeman to name a few...
