Crossover Prog | Country: Sweden | Label: InsideOutMusic
So far I’ve been able to go on a tour with Gungfly in Holland in January, supporting Kayak. When we got home from there I started working on what is to become the next album. We’re booked to play Night of the Prog festival in beautiful Loreley, Germany with both Big Big Train and Gungfly in July this summer. Before that we’re playing Gothenburg with Gungfly in April to be continued!
2017:
In early 2017 I was working in the backing band for a theatrical production that the local steel mill (!!) Sandvik put on in rebro and it took up most of January. After that it was time to approve the masters for On Her Journey to the Sun which was going into production in late February. More gigs with Ulf Nilsson and Linda Varg as they released a single together and booked a tour called Sing Me a Lullaby tour so Petter, Rasmus and I went on the road as their backing band through the summer. I also played some more shows with Hasse Bruniusson Plays the Music of Samla Mammas Manna (We’ll just refer to that as HBPTMOSMM for future reference .
On Her Journey to the Sun was released in May and it got a great reception and actually later on ended up on quite a lot of top ten lists for 2017 across the internet, as did the two albums by Big Big Train. In the end of the summer I went to England to perform three sold out shows at Cadogan Hall with Big Big Train and we started in good fashion by rehearsing for about a week at Real World Studios once more. The shows were great fun and it was filmed for a future live release. When I got back home I started writing new songs for Gungfly but waited with recording. The last period of 2017 was instead spent playing a dinner show at a place called Flustret in Uppsala, Sweden. Four shows per week through second half of November and most of December.
2016:
The Unbendable Sleep was released in February and it received a great reception. I was booked to do a solo acoustic tour in England together with Anima Mundi, but their visas didn’t come through, so I ended up doing just one show in England that year in Swindon of all places! Fun thing though was that my mates from Big Big Train joined me and Rachel Hall played violin on several songs, David sang (Beardfish’s Dark Poet for instance) with me and we also did a Big Big Train song.
My family moved to a house in Sandviken outside of Gvle in March. I had written quite a lot of new Beardfish songs that we were planning to record in the early summer, but when we started rehearsing we noticed that something was off, and it just wasn’t working. After about a month (which seemed like a lifetime) of discussions back and forth we decided to call it quits and end the band. This was a really, tough decision for us, but we didn’t want to start changing members and stuff. Beardfish was the four of us (plus Martin Borgh on keyboards during the last year) and we didn’t want it any other way. Because of this I started recording the leftover Beardfish songs on my own, signed to InsideOut Music and started working on what was to become On Her Journey to the Sun with Gungfly. We played Uppsala Progressive Rock Festival and that was just days after Beardfish had officially split up, so a lot of people were coming up and talking about it. On this festival I played twice, I also played the music of Samla Mammas Manna together with original drummer Hasse Bruniusson, bassist Hkan Almqvist and Roine Stolt of The Flower Kings on guitar Great fun!
I was invited to come and play in Chicago at the Progtoberfest with Gungfly and decided to do it as a trio with Petter and Rasmus Diamant and book some more shows. Ray Loboda, Jim Robinson and Jon P Yarger helped out with this and they also suggested we’d bring company: Mattias Olsson and David Lundberg aka Necromonkey. Together we travelled around the east coast of USA for about a week and had a great time. This was also an opportunity to try out several of the new songs, including Of the Orb, He Held an Axe and On Her Journey to the Sun so when I got back I continued the process of recording the album. At the same time I was recording my parts for the new Big Big Train album as well, which actually turned into two albums called Grimspound and The Second Brightest Star. We also visited Milan, Italy with the Gungfly trio.
2015:
Beardfish toured with Neal Morse Band in Europe and we released our latest album +4626-COMFORTZONE, played quite a lot of shows with Linda Varg, backing her up with acoustic guitar and backing vocals mainly. Went back to England to play three shows at King’s Place in London with Big Big Train (after rehearsing at Real World for about a week) and it was incredible! After I got back I was so hyped up to record some stuff on my own again so I locked myself in the studio and continued recording the stuff I had started in 2014 and it was so much fun that I was basically finished after a month. Greg Spawton of Big Big Train asked if I wanted to come over and play an acoustic show in Cumbria in at the Charlie and Kathleen Dunnery Children’s Foundation, a yearly benefit show hosted by Francis Dunnery from It Bites. Fantastic event and this year’s special guest was none other than Robert Plant who played a great set of his songs. The day of the concert starts off with a sponsored walk around Lake Cumbria and while doing this 3,5 h walk I was talking for quite a while with Chris Topham who runs a vinyl-only record label called Plane Groovy. We started talking about my new solo venture and he was interested in releasing the LP if I released the CD myself.
2014:
Villemo’s younger brother was born and we named him Tage. Lots of gigs with lots of different projects, started working for singer/songwriters Ulf Nilsson and Linda Varg. I was contacted by Big Big Train, they asked me if I was interested in coming over to England and Real World Studios to play with them. They wanted to start playing live again after a 17-year hiatus from the stage and needed some extra people, among them someone who could do guitars, keys and backing vocals. I was honored and said yes pretty much immediately. They were gonna record a DVD (later turned out to be Blu Ray only) of the process and gigs were also planned for 2015. I also started working on some new solo material (Under Northern Skies and Rhyme and Reason which both ended up on 2016’s The Unbendable Sleep.

Reale Accademia Di Musica – Angeli Mutanti (2018)

Reale Accademia Di Musica – Angeli Mutanti (2018)
MP3 CBR 320kbps | 00:50:40 | 116.48 Mb | Cover
Progressive Rock | Country: Italy | Label: M.P. Records
Over the years, several records have been released, inappropriately using the name of Reale Accademia di Musica. Finally, the authentic Reale Accademia di Musica have published their new album, Mutant Angels. September 2014, marks a key moment that led the relaunch of this historic name from Italy’s Progressive Rock scene. The journalist Guido Bellachioma invited Pericle Sponzilli, who was one of the founding members and the guitarist for Reale Accademia di Musica as well as being the songwriter on its historic 1972 album to perform at his music festival, the Progressivamente Free Festival. Pericle played with his old friends the Fholks and old names such as I’Uovo di Colombo, the Raccomandata con Ricevuta di Ritorno and the Saint Just.
After the Progressivamente Free Festival had finished, Pericle began to inch closer to this scene, a scene he had not be part of for some time. He began writing new music, ideal for a band, and a progressive one at that not so much for of its canons, which are already part of the genre, but because, above all, it was progressive in thought!
The Reale Accademia di Musica began life in 1971 when Pericle played various songs that he had just written to Federico Troiani. Federico was excited and immediately set to work with the Fholks. At that time, the Fholks were a cover band, but this music spurred them on to become one of Italy’s most historic progressive bands.
Federico Troiani is no longer with us, but Pericle Sponzill’s riffs and melodies similarly excited and engaged Fabio Liberatori. Fabio and Pericle were old companions in the adventure that was the rock opera The Poliedro di Leonardo and creativity real does fly high when these two musicians work together. When playing their instruments, they are true style-gurus, soaring without constraints, free to go where their hearts take them.
The expressive voice of Erika Savastani from Deserto Rosso, who sang the cover version of Ognuno Sa on the album Progresso, and the refined rhythms of Andy Bartolucci and Fabio Fraschini come together and permit a harmonic squaring of the circle.
The group works like an atelier, a school, an academy. There is a merging of styles and individual skills and experiences. Friendship and mutual esteem are strengthened. This is an academy in the true sense of the term. An entirely real’ Real Academy of Music!
In the 45 years that have passed since the publication of that historic Album in 1972, February 2018 sees a new chapter begin for the mythical Reale Accademia di Musica with the release of their new album, Mutant Angels, on CD and vinyl!

Progger – Dystopia (2018)

Progger – Dystopia (2018)
MP3 CBR 320kbps | 00:57:06 | 131.35 Mb | Cover
Fusion, Jazz-Rock, Jazz-Funk | Country: USA (Austin, TX) | Label: Ropeadope
Brian Donohoe’s Progger is a force – forged in the same cauldron as Snarky Puppy (Donohoe was a writer and early band member), the band has taken an expansive and heavier approach to music. In contrast to the 2018 release ‘Scattering’, and despite the intriguing title ‘Dystopia’, the band’s new album finds intense focus among chaos, bringing the power of four guitarists from the band’s two hubs of Brooklyn and Austin TX. Progger proves the name every time – progressive music (with a cynical twist) laid over intricate compositions. Best with headphones on this one.
Performing on this album are Daniel Watson (drums), Devin Collins (drums and electronic percussion), Steve Anthony Belvilus (drums on Morning Star), Nicholas Clark (electric bass and synth bass), Bryan Ladd (electric bass), Isamu McGregor (keyboards), Carter Arrington (guitar), Daniel Muniz (guitar), Akira Ishiguro (guitar), Matthew Muehling (guitar), Paul Deemer (trombone), and Brian Donohoe (saxophone, keyboard, drum loops, and additional guitar).
Progger’s members gleefully use EarthQuaker Devices pedals, ThreeLeafAudio pedals, Macsax saxophone mouthpieces, Nord keyboards,TRX cymbals, Rath trombones, Warburton brass mouthpieces, Fodera guitars, D’Addario/Evans accessories, Maelo drums, Mogami cables, Colossal cables, Nordstrand pickups, Mono cases, Moody Leather straps, Epifani amplifiers, and Aguilar amplifiers.
All pieces composed by Brian Donohoe (SESAC) except for Oba-Bow and Choom, composed by Matthew Muehling (SESAC).

All tracks recorded by Diko Shoturma and Nic Hard at Atlantic Sound Studios, Brooklyn, NY.
All tracks mixed by Matt Meli at Orb Studios, Austin, TX, except for Adrenal Interlude and Sinister Postlude which were mixed by Brian Donohoe.
All tracks mastered by Sam Minaie at Birdfood Studios, Queens, NY.

Poste 942 – Long Play (2017)

Poste 942 – Long Play (2017)
XLD Rip | FLAC (image+.cue, log) ~ 280.43 Mb | 39:34 | Scans (Front+back)
Hard-Rock | Country: France | Label: BeerBearBoar Prod.
After a demo and two EP, the French Band POSTE 942 finally released their first album Long Play. 13 tracks of a rock at once bluesy, metal, tinged with grunge, Southern-Rock, sometimes stoner, always good guy. The group is completely independent of the stereotypes and in this, does not give any limit to the creation. Which makes the songs full of energy, inspiration and fun.
After a brief intro to the singing accent of the France south, Long Play immediately enters the thicket with the title Color Of Red, an effective piece, both melodic and heavy, whose riffs are made more and more fast and heavy. Then comes the very inspired Whiskey, with southern accents as well but southern rock this time, bluesy at will, with a bagpipe that invites itself at a few opportune moments. Then follow a few songs much faster or totally punk but still catchy. Until Pigs In Paradise that quiets the game with a grunge sound and quite slow, which evokes a good NIRVANA, Lithium version.
The two parts of Psycho Love will confirm that POSTE 942 has as much fishing as it can be posed and full of musical mastery. The hoarse voice of his singer, whether sung or shouted, shows a great power and a stamp that plunges us into an American western universe. The album ends with a Breathe that mixes all the influences that make POSTE 942. A very punchy piece, interesting by the breaks and the soloists proposed.
For short, Long Play is a quality album stamped rock catchy, proposed by an energetic band. The songs are linked without dead time and make a nice soundtrack for a road trip on a hot road 66, or just for a good night rock.
POSTE 942 is a great team that deserves to be encouraged to show what they are capable of. (HARD FORCE)

With an album cover that recalls Weather Report’s ‘Night Passage’ album (which featured live & studio cuts), the Dr. Um Band realizes the musical potential of fusion and completes a picture that Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter began painting 50 years ago. From the first track’s uncanny and authentic evocation of WR to its thrilling concert cuts, ‘On Call’ is the album fusion fans have been waiting for. Plus, it swings & sounds great.
