Hey, how is everyone? Proggozio here. Let me start out by shamelessly plugging two bands that I work with, Prime Mover and Magus.

Prime Mover is from Finland. When you listen to their latest CD "Drivkraft", you can hear elements of Hatfield and the North, Wigwam, Caravan and a touch of Zappa. Add a flute and a trumpet to that, and you come up with a very interesting sound. What really makes "Drivkraft" unique is that it is recorded in Swedish(4% of Sweden's population speak it.)I highly recommend it!To visit their site and listen to their MP3s,  just hit this link: http://www.skivkraft.com/primemover/

Magus is a great band from Vermont.They appeal to Yes and Porcupine Tree fans but their sound is all their own. Their new CD "The Garden" is a fabulous conceptual piece. Gary Strater, fomerly of Starcastle, plays bass on the album.(Sadly, Gary passed away last year.) If you want to check out their music, go to:http://www.magusband.com/

Just one more thing: their music is being played on two different stations: Aural Moon-http://www.auralmoon.com/html/

and The Growl http://thegrowl.missouristate.edu/

Thanks!

We have an American band called Magus on here I'm pretty sure - I will pass on the names though - more details would be appreciated - check the band submission procedure
