Description/Reviews
Overall, it was difficult to categorize this album. Prog Rock? Prog Metal? Maybe, but with a tone of different influences that went into it. The vocals varied from all over the place as well. At its core, it is Dark, Gothic inspired Progressive Music that has that distinct Danish feeling to it. You know what I’m talking about. The darkness and mystery are enough to keep any listener interested so I definitely recommend giving his your time.

Description/Reviews
The Southern French quartet are now returning with a more “typical” HYPNO5E record, if there is such a thing: their 5th album, “A Distant (Dark) Source”, is the second part of a diptych album project. “A Distant (Dark) Source” continues to chase those demons and lost memories which the band has been chasing ever since their debut album “Des Deux L'Une Est L'Autre”: the album is an inward journey to the land of the ghosts of the past. At the origin of this distant dark source lies Tauca, an old Paleolithic lake located in Bolivia.It disappeared more than 15 000 years ago, leaving behind an arid land and salt lakes at 4.500m of altitude in the Andes mountain range. “A Distant (Dark) Source” is the musical imagination of a night in this desert, during which the old shores of the lake see the return of the shadows of the people who used to live in this area before its disappearance.  …but don't be deterred by such conceptual enthusiasm, as HYPNO5E sound is powerful, visceral and immediate. There are moments that remind you of the expansive technical elaborations of BTBAM, but there is also the careful melancholia of Cynic and the sheer power of Gojira... but in the end, all these comparisons fail - HYPNO5E's organic sound is undoubtedly their own. Unlike so many bands who rely on a single sound or technique to create their music, HYPNO5E are not bound to any precondition.

Description/Reviews
On III, Pink Floyd-esque licks come face to face with monster riffs worthy of Queens Of The Stone Age. Nothing ever feels cobbled together, but rather as if the listener is being taken on a clearly thought out journey. As the band wraps the record up with the stunning vocal harmonies on the closer, "Maiden Mother Come" it is evident that taking the listener on a sonic quest was the goal the entire time. With inspired playing and gorgeous guitar tones throughout, it’s easy to start and then continue with the band on this epic adventure.

His deep, unwavering love for Metal music had to take over again, and for almost a decade now, he is fronting a solo project meant to display his best playing and songwriting through a powerful and rich brand of Power Prog that always manages to put the song first.
His new album, “The Writing’s on the Wall” produced by Patrick himself, is another perfect balance of huge 7-string guitar riffs, amazing vocal work and his trademark out of this world soloing, all backed up by clever arrangements and brilliant musicians.
Combining a broad spectrum of influences into a mature and focused personal style, Patrick Hemer has created his own unique path, and he is proving again with “The Writing’s on the Wall” that he is not only a name for shred guitar aficionados but also a complete musician and someone all the world’s Progressive Metal maniacs can count on to keep the flame alive and well…

Description/Reviews
The new album titled “A Way Out Of Here” not only offers a colourful palette of art rock with its nine songs, but also illuminates the essentials of life with all obstacles, fears and rays of hope. A song-serving brilliant band, analog synthesizers and epic choirs provide the basis for Yogi Lang’s gilmouresque voice.
The first symphonic wall of sound is only a few seconds away: “Move On” – obviously audibly linked to the debut work – gently pulls the listener out of everyday life. There are many personal experiences in “A Way Out Of Here”, which the album wants to convey in peace, without hustle and bustle, without false pathos. Love often seems to offer a possible solution for problems. “Love is All Around” and “Freedom Of The Day” believe in the ability of love and empathy to banish just about any problem to insignificance. But what if this “Way Out Of Here” does not exist? In “Shine On Me” the protagonist cannot accept the loss of his partner, just ignores it and in the last of the nine tracks “I’ll Be There For You” we also find the last promise to stay with a loved one to the very end, if necessary, at any cost. This already ends a multi-layered and very emotional journey through Yogi Lang’s world of thoughts.

Description/Reviews
Infringement has been described as playing something in between neo-progressive rock and symphonic rock while flirting with various genres throughout their debut album. They touch on big groovy parts with funky rhythms, other times they clearly visit the 70s. A mix of melodious, symphonic rock with unexpected twists and progressive bar changes.

After spending the last two years writing, fine-tuning, and recording their next album, Infringement is now ready for the next chapter. Alienism, a large sounding, intense concept album peeks into the mind of patients at the Gentmire Institute, an institution at the forefront of psychiatrical innovation. We get the insights of the commissioner of Lunacy himself, and through his journals, we enter the world of The Alienist. So let us all escape reality and seek comfort in our minds.

Description/Reviews
“The Bonfire of the Vanities” leads off the album, with what sounds like a full on choir you would have in a church. Then, the main melody comes in, rugged and ambitious. The vocal harmonies are excellent. Their compositional skills are underscored here…these guys are very thoughtful. Some of the songwriting is almost Classical in nature and Malm has an outstanding voice. “Beneath the Veneer” is a darker song, more in the vein of SYMPHONY X. The guitars maintain a steady and heavy presence while the vocals are smooth and easy on the ears. The harmonies in the chorus are where they really shine.

Description/Reviews
A new progressive music project, Zeitgeist is a collaborative music endeavor featuring members of the progressive rock bands Happy The Man, Oblivion Sun, and the Pedal Giant Animals project. The recording project started out as an idea for a Happy The Man reunion CD, but evolved to include many other musicians so another Pedal Giant Animals project was born.
