1974 biography
Formed in Newington, Connecticut in 2007

1974 describes themselves as a 'Close-knit group of eccentric friends' who are tireless in their pursuit of realizing their collective visions. The band initially consisted of Mike FORGETTE (Guitar, Vocals), Tim MOORE (Drums, Vocals), Gary DIONNE (Bass, Vocals), Adam CLYMER (Guitar) and Angela RHEA-PICCOLI (Keyboards, Vocals). The lineup remained constant for the first seven years of their existence as the band gained a following in Connecticut culminating with a streak of wins awarded by the Connecticut Music Awards (CTMA) including 'Best New Artist? in 2012, 'Best Rock Band' in 2013 and 2014 and finally 'Best Overall Band' in 2014. In December of 2014 the band suffered their first personnel change with keyboardist Angela RHEA-PICCOLI left the band to pursue other interests. A replacement has not been named at the time of this writing.

The band focuses on Sci-Fi themed concept albums as evidenced by the 2011 release '1974 & The Battle for the Lazer Fortress' and the 2013 '1974 & The Death of the Herald'. In between, the band released two shorter EP's that focus on shorter, more down-tempo pieces. The band lists the following influences: YES, RUSH, THE DECEMBERISTS, THE BEATLES, KANSAS, PINK FLOYD and JETHRO TULL.

With complex four layer vocal arrangements, intricate drumming and a pair of soaring guitars, this is a band that has ambitions of following in the vein that COHEED AND CAMBRIA pioneered and the chops to back up the ambition.

5 stars I don't remember how I went to discover this band. Probably it was in the "free legal mp3 downloads" thread here on PA. I actually downloaded it, forgot it for some time and went to the first listen without knowing what to expect. well, IT ROCKS! I can't understand why a band of this kind which I think has also a commercial potential is still unsigned. Hey labels, where are you looking? How can you ignore a thing like this?

They sound quite american, with the double guitar like LYNYRD SKYNYRD or WISHBONE ASH, they have acoustic interludes like THE WHO, the vocalists are excellent, the music is loud and progressive enough with signature changer, sometimes odd and unusual, but listenable for every kind of ears. That's what I mean for "commercial potential".

There is a concept, too. It's a Sci-Fi story that started in 2011 with the band's first EP and will continue with the next album for which the band is currently crowdfunding.

This album has no flaws. It's a total listening pleasure from the start to the end. It's powerful but even with all the instruments at high volume it's also excellently mixed and produced. I'm used to enjoy it on headphones, but I suggest to let it break your speakers.

It's downloadable as name your price on bandcamp, so hurry up and get your copy. To me it's one of the best albums that I have listened to in 2013 and I'm still listening to it from time to time. (twice between yesterday evening and this morning, just to give an idea).

Can it deserve the status of "masterpiece"? I don't know, really, but I enjoy it a lot and I listen to it more often than to any recognized prog masterpiece, so for me it's a 5-stars album. I hope that sooner or later this hidden gem band will be disclosed to the world.

3 stars Hailing from Newington, Connecticut this American group begun life at the fall of 2007, featuring Mike Forgette and Adam Clymer on guitars, Tim Moore on drums, Gary Dionne on bass and Angela Rhea Piccoli on keyboards with all members besides Clymer contributing on vocals.Four years later they debuted with ''1974 & The battle for the lazer fortress'', which was launched on bandcamp for free, anyone willing to pay a small amount of bucks though could purchase a physical CD copy of the album.

A totally independent creation with the band being also responsible for the production of the album, ''1974 & The battle for the lazer fortress'' is a decent trip into Prog Rock's heavier territories.Has this 1974 name something to do with the past?I'd rather say that the band sounds more modern than retro, but there are still plenty of nostalgic injections in this effort, Angela Rhea Piccoli and her powerful organ being the main reason for the fact.The band would introduce itself with an opening 16-min. instrumental madness titled ''Overture'', which sums up what 1974 is all about: Heavy Prog Rock and even some Hard Rock thrown in with punchy guitars and effective organ, complemented by a solid rhythm section and occasional pinches of acoustic and electric piano.Time signatures, rhythm assaults, atmospheric breaks and lots, I mean lots, of angular riffs in the process.Rreckless and confident performance.Split this track into its different sections and you'll have the rest of the album in your hands plus you should count the addition of vocals.Straight Hard Rock tunes, Retro/Heavy Prog vibes with organ in evidence, some smoother sections with discreet jazzy elements or acoustic interludes and even some borderline Alternative/Prog Rock akin to compatriots NO MORE PAIN.Not that efficiernt as the opening piece, still containing plenty of interesting moments, like the epic electroacoustic atmosphere of ''Wait'' or the surprising and positive meld of Fusion and Heavy Rock with the superb introductive electric piano of ''Guide our hands''.

A band to keep an eye on.Serious attempt on modern Heavy Prog with constant references to the 70's, nice keyboard work, clean vocals, complex themes and a true guitar fest of riffs inside.Recommended.

Thanks to kev rowland for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
