Description/Reviews
“Fragments of the 5th Element”  finds MAGIC PIE steering clear of the sterile perfection so often found amongst modern Prog bands  in order to create an album with a slightly more unpolished sound, and  a “rough around the edges” feel  that gives it an added bite.  From the genre-defying opener, to the  epic 23 minute closer, MAGIC PIE clearly demonstrate just why they have become a household name amongst Prog Rock fans, and why this album has been worth the long wait.

Description/Reviews
This Winter Machine are developing into fine exponents of a pleasing brand of great rock songs with an eye for memorable melodies and hooks. They wear their influences proudly on their musical sleeves, but they do not slavishly copy other bands and are not afraid to meld together unusual mixtures of styles, such as Symmetry And Light. This Winter Machine do not do ‘avant garde’ or experimental music (which is fine for other bands!), they focus on writing and performing high quality crafting catchy melodic rock songs (which is no mean feat). Whilst they are not breaking new musical frontiers (a rare occurrence for any artists in reality) they are very skilled in expressing their musical and lyrical ideas with flair and imagination.

Description/Reviews
"Our Own Sad Fate" is an album that has been in development for around a decade, and I understand members have both come and gone in that period. Which may be a reason for the diversity of the music on this album. But all the songs play out well, and maintains interest easily throughout. While perhaps not a finely polished gem it is still a solid jewel this one, and a production that merits a check by those with an equally strong passion for 70's era symphonic progressive rock and mid 80's neo-progressive rock.

What would happen if Deep Purple and Yes had an illicit encounter under a Porcupine Tree*?
Living Dangerously is a Sonic Cocktail on the Rocks, blending equal parts Classic, Progressive, Jazz and Blues and cheekily spiking with a whatever they found lurking at the back of the cupboard.

*No iconic prog rock acts were harmed in the making of this album.

SEED is the third album from Freedom To Glide and completes their anti-war trilogy which began in 2013 with RAIN followed by FALL in 2016. With SEED Freedom To Glide have brought together every aspect of their unique sound to produce a very focused and personal concept album based around one man's experience of 1918 - the final year of World War 1. Musically, Freedom To Glide take you on a cinematic journey through their now familiar sonic landscape of layered synths, evocative acoustic guitar, atmospheric piano and soaring guitar solos.
