  4. Hi There


    We are Franklin Mint from Bristol in the UK and on June 1st we released our debut album "Scrage".

    We though as you are into some really unusual and inventive music you might like to check us our and perhaps let us know what you think or even add us to your site.

    Would be great to hear from you anyway. Biog and Links below.

    Dear World.

    Since inception two years ago Franklin Mint have engineered a new form of heavy alternative rock we like to call Prunk!

    It is a catalyst for the future of all modern rock music, falling between Melvins / Tool / Tomahawk / Killing Joke and erm Nick Cave... The songs all start out as individual random notes played using time signatures which are mathematically generated and implemented using semaphore.

    Bizarrely the resulting noise is something that you can sing along and dance too if your so inclined.

    The music is driven by a rhythm section ( Mark Toghill = Bass, Andrew Marshall = drums ) who had to play together for 20 years before they dared to get involved in such a project as Franklin Mint.

    The original drummer ( Al Ross) now plays guitars and keys, whilst sporting the bands best beard and produced / mixed the album.

    Vocals are courtesy of Nick Law ( not Cave or Cage) and his rich baritone bring tales of Pirates / Politics / Gothic Horror and trans-dimensional travel. He also does the artwork! You can see the Album art below in all it glory.

    You can listen to it here or on Spotify or anywhere else you normally use.



    Also below you will find a link to our first videos shark Vs Sheep and Narcissus as well as other useful links.


    Franklin Mint wrote and recorded the album all by themselves and will make it available to the universe on June 1st 2018. We are incredibly proud of it and hope you like it as well.

    Should you choose to enter our world - even for just a few moments your existence and understanding of music will change for ever.

    Lots of love.

    Nick , Al , Mark, Andrew.

    Franklin Mint

  5. Greetings! Thanks a bunch for having "Revelation" from "Opus Arise" 2 years ago, we have a new album called "Invisible Walls" up! If it's no trouble we'd love to have it showcased here, thanks! https://opusarise.bandcamp.com/

  6. New Prog Releases is easily the single most important website, of the dozens, if not hundreds on the web, for progressive rock. Thank you for all your efforts!

    1. Thank you for your comment, but without other sites where people post news, write reviews or collect and organize information in databases, this blog would be much less informative and interesting.

  7. Hi man! Guiarist of Chaos Over Cosmos here. We're prog heavy band and we just released our debut album (7th September). It's polish-spanish project, we didn't even met ;) It's mix of heavy and prog metal with power and ambient influences. Here is dowmload link for the album with mp3, artwork and band's info: https://mega.nz/#!ie5lmYhb!3Uzek176lZRU1hwTDx8YXhhxoq7CuToZ4R_biP5NEZg
    and here is album in Youtube playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLHVdr5uHAmXEuPc4coimjAp4n_2UGd90p
    Thanks for your time and I hope you will like it. All the best. Rafal

  8. Hi there,

    My name is Jen and I am a composer from Atlanta. My project is called Spurge and we have a new album out. Georgia Local Spotlight calls it "wildly free, experimental spirit and unabashed ambition." and Prog Sphere compares it to the great Frank Zappa. We've been featured in Bass Guitar Magazine and Bass Musicians Magazine. Give it a listen:



  9. Just a quick note to say that I find this list bloody useful.

  10. A new one from newspaperflyhunting: https://newspaperflyhunting.bandcamp.com/album/time-lost

    1. Thank you. Somehow I missed your comment. I will have a listen.

  11. I think that there is one vital bit of info missing from your listing i.e. language used by artist. When I see country of origin I also like to know if they sing in English or their native tongue. They are not good to me at all if it's not English. I hate listening to something that I cannot understand.

    1. One can quite confidently guess the language from the tracklist. If band sings in its native language, the tracklist is usually also in that language.

  12. I LOVE your site!
    Will you have the information on the new Clepsydra when it becomes available (such as track list, etc.)?
    Thank you!

  13. Howdy Richard here in Nanaimo BC Canada I do a prog radio show here on the local Campus radio station CHLY 101.7 fm. Just wanted to let you know a local group called Mr. Goshness just released their now album Beyond The Blue and thought you might like to review it. https://mrgoshness.bandcamp.com/?fbclid=IwAR34vIgh7vGLwNZ09i8H_Db6ZxfFJN3LIHEGkbc3og5zBegugsmSq18EUyY Thank you so much for your website.

  14. Hi Richard. Thank you for mentioning the band, I knew nothing about them. I don't write reviews, but I will add their album to this blog

    1. Thank you,I'll try to keep my eyes open for anymore Canadian prog bands for you.
