180 gram double LP vinyl set of this debut release from this great Norwegian prog band.  This features a new analog mix for vinyl as well as some new modified artwork.

Airbag is a new young prog band from Norway. Their music has a dreamy quality that will have you floating in the clouds. If you are fan of Riverside's lighter moments you will spooge over this. Definite references to Radiohead and Porcupine Tree will spring to mind as you listen. The music never explodes - it takes the slow fire approach creating constant tension. Lots of beautiful melodies wafting through your skull from the first listen. Highly recommended. These guys could potentially break big.

  • Legendary private recording session that has been bootlegged over the years, now given an official release.  Gunter Schickert is a German guitarist who's speciality is echoplex guitar - not to different from Achim Reichel.  His releases on the Brain label as must own albums for any krautrock fan.  In 1975, Schickert was touring Europe as a roadie for Klaus Schulze.  This recording session occured in Schulze's living room on 9/26/75 in Hambuhren, Germany.  This is pretty near the apex of Schulze's analog keyboard period (or as I like to call it "the real goods").  This one lives up to the legend - Schulze trips out with his EMS Synthi A and other keys.  Schickert overlays his guitar lines and they just melt right into the fabric of the music.  If you are looking for an album that would be the definition of the Berlin School sound - this is it.  Wonderful clarity to the recording presented here on 180 gram vinyl.  This one is guaranteed to take you to a happy place.  Highly recommended.

  • Second album of collaboration between vocalists Jorne Lande and Russell Allen. Once again the album is fueled by the writing and guitar playing of ex-Last Tribe guitarist Magnus Karlsson (Last Tribe - was that a band that was overlooked or what?). I thought the writing on this one was better than the debut - it sounded more integrated and less forced. It was also tipped more towards the metal end of the spectrum. Great vocal performances goes without saying - recommended for that alone.

  • "Coming right out of nowhere Love.Might.Kill really made an impact in the summer of 2011 with their Brace For Impact album, which perfectly combined the enthusiasm of a debut with the experience of a long songwriting career. And a look at the lineup soon proved: there are no newcomers here. And it did not really surprise anybody that Love.Might.Kill proved their success with their debut already. One year later now Love.Might.Kill return with their mighty 2nd effort 2 Big 2 Fail showing everybody that the success of the debut was not by purpose. With the addition of keyboarder Sascha Onnen (ex- Mob Rules ) the band is on the verge of breaking right through. Their first tour already has been booked and will accompany the release date in October. The album was again produced by Michael Ehré, being around for years as drummer in bands like Gamma Ray, Firewind, Metalium or with artists like Uli Jon Roth, Matt Gonzo Roehr, Vinnie Moore and Kee Marcello he made his strong impact in the national and international scene. The album was mixed and mastered by Markus Teske at his Bazement-Studios."

  • "Royal Hunt’s “Double Live In Japan” is a compilation drawn from two different live albums. The first disc in the set features highlights from “1996 Live”, from the “Moving Target” tour. This was the first tour with D.C. Cooper on lead vocals, with material from the first three Royal Hunt albums. Selections from “Moving Target”, D.C.’s vocal debut; and the first recorded versions of D.C. singing material from “Land Of Broken Hearts” and“Clown In The Mirror”. The second disc is the entire “Closing The Chapter”album, which was a very limited edition, version of the “Paradox” live stage show.The core of the music is provided by composer and keyboard wizard Andre Andersen. By combining his classical background with a love of hard rock, Andre creates a dynamic range of melodic progressive metal. Steen Mogensen also comes from a classical background in addition to adding his vast experience playing bass with a number of Scandinavian hard rock bands. Jacob Kjoer, one of the best session guitarists in Denmark, has been with the band ever since he was asked to play on one of the group’s early recording sessions. D.C. Cooper (the American connection in the group, from Pittsburgh PA) rounds out the quartet with his powerful vocal and performing skills.In the live setting Royal Hunt bring an incredible energy to their material, feeding off the appreciative Japanese fans who fill stadiums to witness the spectacle of a full blown stage show. The electricity of the event is captured on these two different tours, and presented for the first time to American fans.Royal Hunt is something of a phenomenon because they have established themselves as legitimate “stars” in global markets outside of America. In Japan, they are recognized as a major act and their reputation is growing quickly throughout Europe. Now, America gets exposed to the music that has sold almost a million copies worldwide."

  • The late Michael Hedges was one of the great visionary guitarists of our lifetimes. He used tapping techniques on acoustic guitar to create a wall of sound. He was influenced by John Fahey and Leo Kottke and made us all rethink what can possibly be done with an acoustic guitar.  Introspective but addictive.  If you have any interest in guitar you need to hear this album.

  • 1978's Casino is considered by many to be the pinnacle of DiMeola's solo career but frankly I'm not sure how you can pick and chose. By now he had established his sound and stuck to his guns. A masterful display of musicianship.

  • What would you call a power trio that veers seamlessly between shredding peaks, jazzy moods, and fat funky grooves? Mörglbl of course! Often compared to Primus meeting Steve Vai, Mörglbl hits like a heavyweight jab and makes you laugh while you bleed! Mörglbl is the punch you don't see coming! Packaged in a limited edition digipak, "Jazz For The Deaf" is the fourth album from the world-renowned French jazz metal trio. This band with the unusual name is led by virtuoso guitarist Christophe Godin. Virtuoso bassist Ivan Rougny is complemented by the double bass of new drummer Aurelien Ouzoulias. With the release of "Jazz For The Deaf", Mörglbl has created an album with cross genre appeal. Fans of shred and fusion Gods like Allan Holdsworth, Steve Vai or Freak Kitchen's Mattias Eklundh will find much to sink their teeth into. After entertaining crowds around the world, Mörglbl performed at Nearfest in 2008. It was the first time in the 10 year history of the festival that an opening act received two encores. This amazing performance sparked a flurry of interest from other festivals, culminating with Mörglbl receiving an invitation to appear at Progday 2009 in Chapel HIll, NC on 9/5/09.

  • I've always been disappointed that Avalon broke up. Eurasia was one of my favorite Sensory releases and vocalist Chity Somapala was one of the main reasons. After kicking around with a number of projects he has put together a new progressive metal "supergroup" of sorts that has the earmark to be something really special. Red Circuit was put together by keyboardist Markus Teske, a producer who has worked with Vanden Plas in the past. He enlisted Chity to sing. The music is a great blend of melodic prog metal that will appeal to fans of Vanden Plas. Special guest guitarists include Patrick Rondat (Elegy), Stephan Lill (Vanden Plas), and Stephan Forte (Adagio). This will be one of 2006's best prog metal releases.
