And here we are in 2017, we decided to start it out with a few major changes. Some of those changes you might like, while others might not please you as much, but there always has to be a trade-off.

Let us begin with the good news. First of all, we would like to thank all the 100k visitors that come to us every day. Second, we would like to list all the changes that were recently made on our website:

  • The script of our website was completely rewritten and renewed, which made the website more stable and quick.

  • All ads were removed from our website. No more banners, pop-ups and pop-under ads.

  • The website is using SSL protocols as we care greatly about security.

  • The website is available through Tor network (The Onion Router) by using this link: http://avaxhome5lcpcok5.onion/ or via TOR proxy http://avaxhome5lcpcok5.onion.to/

Now, we’d like to mention some of the unpleasant changes that will befall our users. As you might have noticed, we are now using a new file hosting website - IcerBox.com. From this day forward, all files can be downloaded from premium accounts only.

Do you look at life seeing a half-full or a half-empty glass of water? What we’re getting at is that you can look at this change as a mandatory fee for downloading files or you can view it as a crowdfunding of your favorite project!

Cheers to everyone! We hope that you’ll be with us for years to come!

Welcome to P51, Prog magazine's first cover CD for 2017. This first CD of the new year is certainly overflowing with promise. We feature former Limelight artist Baltic Fleet alongside Polymatters and Nerissa Schwarz, who seem to veer towards the synth side of prog. Then there are some real prog bangers in the shape of Kepler Ten, Kyros, The Fringe and Seas of Mirth, who can't fail to get the foot tapping and the head nodding. There's some stylish progressive rock from Glass Hammer and Aisles, and also from newbie Bugenhagen. Ten tracks of different styles, maybe, but all of the same level of quality.

Gòtic is the legendary musical band formed in Barcelona in the 70’s. Its activity lasted a few years , between 1970 and 1978. They published a single work, the L.P. " Escenes " in 1978. Over the years, and for the new generations , the band’s unique "long -play " has become an icon of the symphonic and progressive rock, almost an iconic sample of an era.
Back in 1978 Gòtic recorded the demo takes of what would be their second album (LP) during some “live” sessions in “Gema-1” recording studios of Barcelona. The band’s recording label disliked the tunes considering them “not enough sofisticated"… In 2013 the band recovered the original tapes and decided to digitalize, remaster and publish the works, with the invaluable help of the original engineers, Enric Català and Jordi Vidal, amazed by their quality and alive groove feeling.

Principal Edwards Magic Theatre is one of those hard-to-classify bands that made the late '60s a musical adventure playground for listeners. What was more, the live music scene and airwaves were broad-minded enough to give bands who dared to be different the chance of exposure. They enjoyed the attention of the late John Peel who broadcast them on his BBC shows and made them the first band to be signed to his Dandelion record label. The Devon Tapes was recorded in the summer of 1974 under the shorter name Principal Edwards. This is the first time these recordings have been made available to the public.

From 1980 comes this lovely prog inspired album from Pierpaolo Bibbo. "Diapason" was a very good and unique symphonic album during a period that was considered less than stellar among most progressive rock fans. It was recorded during 1979 and released on La Strega Records in 1980. Bibbo composed everything and co-produced the album with Marcello Mazzella. He played guitars and bass, handled vocals, and played synths showing a high level of all-around competence. Other musicians provided additional keyboards, drums, violin, and flute giving the album a reasonable "band" feel. Like other symphonic releases of this period "Diapason" doesn't outwardly break a lot of new ground but Bibbo's unique talents and interesting approach give this work a fresh feel…

Camel's classic period started with The Snow Goose, an instrumental concept album based on a novella by Paul Gallico. Although there are no lyrics on the album – two songs feature wordless vocals – the music follows the emotional arc of the novella's story, which is about a lonely man named Rhayader who helps nurse a wounded snow goose back to health with the help of a young girl called Fritha he recently befriended…

Paradigm Shift are a London-based progressive rock band whose music brings together the technical complexities of 70's progressive rock, the adrenaline rush of heavy metal and the immediacy of electronica. Though influenced by bands such as DREAM THEATER, RUSH and OPETH, they are a theatrical and technical addition to a distinctively British lineage of progressive bands, and have been compared with the likes of PORCUPINE TREE, BIG BIG TRAIN and LIFESIGNS. The band was formed in 2007 by friends Reuben KRENDEL (guitars) and Ben REVENS (keys and lead vocals) with the intent of creating diverse music with a political message…

Argentinean group Vox Dei started playing by the end of the 1960s. After signing up to independent label Mandioca, the band released "Azucar Amarga" and "Presente" in 1969; a year later, they issued the album Caliente. Vox Dei's conceptual album La Biblia, released in 1971, consolidated the band as one of the major local rock numbers. When Juan Carlos Godoy decided to leave the act, Ignacio Smilari joined in. Soon after Jeremias, Pies De Plomo came out, Vox Dei participated in a movie called Rock Hasta Que Se Ponga El Sol. In 1974, guitarist Carlos Michelini replaced Ricardo Soulé. The group disbanded after a live performance at Buenos Aires' Obras Sanitarias in 1981, returning in 1988 to make a new record called Tengo Razones Para Seguir.

He creates an instrumental, concept, atmospheric, psychedelic-progressive album based on the ancient greek myths about Esperus and Phosphorus. The powerful blend of guitars, farfisa organ and flutes creates a dreamy landscape alternated between the Light and the Dark. Dreamy, mystical, sentimental, poetic.

Another little known but excellent Italian progressive band. Their roots were in psychedelia, but their sound wasn't quite developed on their debut. Close to Banco del Mutuo Soccorso, early Premiata Forneria Marconi and also Emerson, Lake & Palmer or Le Orme. Two classic albums for any fan of seventies Progressive.
"Purgatorio" (2016) is the final part of Metamorfosi's 'Dante' trilogy, which started back in 1972 with the release of "Inferno".
