What's your favourite prog rock band? I love Gentle Giants.
I'm listening to pic related at the moment.
It's Doom+Prog (in 70's style).
My favorite band is Gentle Giant too. Acquiring the taste is their best.
Listen to Acquiring the Taste, Octopus, In a Glass House and Free Hand.
The Power and the Glory is good too, but it isn't in the same level as the rest.
First, it's Gentle Giant and not giants. Second, there is no entry-way collage of GG so all you can do is to immerse yourself into the album until you start to like it. But i suggest you to start of with something less eclectic like VDGG.
You better lie low!
When the future is architecture by a carnival of faggots is unknown, you better turn the light on!
So, if you turn the light on! Bang, you can count the black points!
Tyrone, is this bingo bingo cash cash? It means, the money is rolling by itself... why I don't buy me a 600cc bike and fucking crash again. you fucking pig wills and soilwork plebs.
what did you guys think of pic related? I'm not usually one for "feels" but this track hit me pretty hard
I really wanted to like it because both the singles were good but it felt a bit bland. Solid, but bland. Even the singles now bore me.
It's basically a less dynamic version of Breaking Orbit, and the title track has nearly the exact same melody as Silence Seekers
It's not bad though, and they're on the way up
>not being one for feels
I bet you have a gf
But it's easily their weirdest. I remember listening to that ages ago as my intro and thinking it was god-awful ear rape
Took me so long to actually give them another chance because of it.
For Magma: listen to their discography in order. It's all great.
For Zeuhl: this pic is fine, but replace Vrresto with Hyderomastgroningem and Elixirs with Five Suns
now this is a prog vinyl thread
I got free hand and interview for free working at a shitty record store/cd store
shub-niggurath, univers zero, weidorje, eskaton, archaia, dun, guapo, art zoyd, happy family, koenjihyakkei, athanor, bubu, cos, paga, ruins and universal totem orchestra
in this particular order. after that you can explore less known groups
Oh, then check their next two albums. If you like them, listen to all of their material.
For Zeuhl, check charts and this: https://rateyourmusic.com/customchart?page=1&chart_type=top&type=album&year=alltime&genre_include=1&genres=Zeuhl&include_child_genres=t&include=both&limit=none&countries=

the future kings of england master race
Nice i've only got CttE, Relayer is my favorite, Fragile, and the Yes Album. Ive heard and loved the wakeman albums lots got squire solo and wakeman. Jon & Vangelis is a necessity check it out, I can't get enough Vangelis
henry vii and journey to the center of the earth are in just about every dollar bin i've ever seen, good stuff too
i just recently got this vangelis album for 50 cents, they had thrown it in with all the classical albums that are always less than a dollar because they saw it was on deutsche grammophon I guess
what album was it? ive got a lot
i only have journey to the centre of the earth by wakeman. got it for a dollar and played the fuck out of it
oh the album in the picture lols never seen it. it looks cool though. checked it out on the net and it says 5/5 dark ambient shit. its in between a lot of my later vangelis. i have soil festivities from that time in vangelis' career then direct is 88 those 85ish
King Crimson is still my favorite
they have way too many great albums
There are a lot of stylistic and historic similarities between prog and krautrock. Different artists can sound very different even of they belong in the same genre. Prog isn't "stuff that sounds like Genesis"
My favorite prog rock band and one of my favorite bands is Rush. Favorite albums 2112, A Farewell to Kings, Hemispheres. Alex Lifeson is a great rhythm guitarist. I think he can create a good balance of heavy hard rock riffs that are progressive and accessible. What other prog rock bands would be most closest to Rush?
i mean like, prog is in my mind stuff that's very heavily composed. can would just jam for hours and piece together those jams in the studio. the style is just so different. I guess it depends on what you want to define "progressive" as
It's not weird at all, especially not compared to their early stuff. DiTC, Tremulant and FtM are weird as all fucking get out, most people instantly dismiss them because their first 3 albums are impossible for a lay person to easily comprehend. TBiG, Octahedron and Noctourniquet are all super accessible pop-rock/hard-rcok albums. If you don't like psych or prog, they are the easiest way to get into them, if you like prog, the Amputecture is the way to go, if you like Punk and hardcore, try Tremulant. Save DiTC and FtM until you can handle the weirdness
I dunno about you but as someone who hated them at first I think they got progressively less accessible until Bedlam which is a total fucking mess, then slowly came back. Deloused is by far the best entry, and their best because of it. Inaccessible TMV is garbage.
I've been jamming to this a bunch lately. I don't think I have a favorite prog rock band, but King Crimson is pretty high up there.
