The album of the Month May 2020: Realisea - Mantelpeace

Realisea was originally formed in 2011 as a collaboration between Silhouette frontman Brian de Graeve and singer Marjolein de Graeve. Together they wrote dozens of songs which resulted in this album which includes small acoustic songs and melancholic prog pop songs of around 8 minutes. They are being accompanied by a range of guest artists such as Jean Pageau and Michel St. Pere, both of Mystery fame.

The album of the Month April 2020: Sintonia Distorta - A piedi nudi sull'Arcobaleno

A refined masterpiece in Italian progressive rock, full of remarkable compositions and arrangements, in which each song catapults you into a magnificent surprise! As descriped in the Brazilian magazine `Prog Sky`. All the more reason for the TVRDO team to take a closer look (read Listen). And yes, Album of the Month truly deserved. Check out our 4 shows this month to have a listen. A full review will follow shortly in our cd/dvd review section.

 

  • The album of the Month March 2020: Pendragon - Love over Fear

    With "Love Over Fear" the now 40-year-old British group returns to the full, compelling symphonic rock sound of albums "The Window Of Life" and "The Masquerade Overture", "Love Over Fear" is available in three editions: in addition to the standard CD edition, there is a 3-disc version with also an acoustic and instrumental version of the album material and the inevitable vinyl edition: a double LP in a flip cover, with colored 'splatter' vinyl.

  • The Album of the Month February 2020: Different Light - Binary Suns (Part 1 - Operant Condition)

    The second time Maltese/Czech proggers Different Light made it as Album of the Month at TVRDO (Their previous album"Burden of Paradise" was AOM in March 2016). Their new album Binary Suns - Part 1" is a concept album and, as the title suggests, this is part 1 of 2. The group skilfully exploits the melodic and sometimes nostalgic fiber of progressive rock brought up to date and sounds even better than it's predecessor, if that is at all possible.

  • The Album of the Month January 2020: Karfagen - Birds of Passage

    Karfagen is mainly an instrumental band that shows imaginative use of keyboards and guitars, classical and ethnic instruments. Their style can be described as symphonic art-rock with a hint of new-age, folk, jazz-rock and neo-prog in places. Their influences are CAMEL, FOCUS, HAPPY THE MAN, GREENSLADE, THE FLOWER KINGS, UK and KAYAK. This is their 11th consecutive album.
