At times my metal-sore ears just give up the ghost and are in dire need of something more melodious and less harsh. So, there is no better treatment than slapping some progressive and alternative Band-Aid on them. And indeed, the RMR deck crew finds that those undercurrents finally take on some steam. Luckily so, as the officescape kind of worried what was about to come still in 2017. Apart from blackened pieces of scorched metal, of which there is plenty these days. Yet still some doubts persists on what exactly is to come.

Thus any good and technically outstanding production is welcome these days. Because – so I hear with trepidation – Steven Wilson and his newest record due out this year is more on the poppy side than anything else.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Review - Gentle Knife - Clock Unwound - Album Cover

There is a plethora of Progressive Rock and Metal bands out there with an ever growing progosphere to boot. Yet, today’s prog gets dangerously close to the state  of being predictive. Some think good prog needs to be djents and only djents, plus some high pitched wailing. Others profess that only chaos will pay homage to the mighty gods of progressive nirvana. Loki preserve us – forsooth!

Now, this year (still) promises great things, like the new pop-infused (shiver…) album of Steven Wilson after his stellar Hand. Cannot. Erase. Not to forget the pretty cool latest piece of work of Lucassen‘s Ayreon that just arrived.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
