Seems like an obvious choice to me. My vote is yes. I can't see why the other guys would have a problem with it, but I will make sure they check it out.

Sounds obvious for me, I agree, we need another vorte, will call Bob and James to reach the third opinion required.

Oops, there is a problem :
 
Has the album been released??
 
If not, they will have to wait until the album is in the market.

Interesting sound. PT meets late-70s Yes. I would say they probably qualify as kind of neo-symphonic, but I can't find 'The Thomas Tapes' anywhere on-line and the band's web site refers to them mixing a "demo CD" just 3 months ago. Are they a signed band with a released CD, or is this just demo material?

^^^ Agree Bob, lets remember we had two bands without releases who promissed an album for the next months and never came, so had to be deleted, so we decided not to add a band until their first album is in the stores.
 
Probably Erik can help us with more info.

Thanks for your posts. I just read the info sheet: the promo CD I received is a demo-CD that contains 4 tracks, the band will go into the studio very soon so I am going to prepare their addition, the team will have a look at the category and I will do the addition when the CD is on sale, OK?

Thanks in advance Thumbs%20Up
 
If you want info, mail: info@5bridges.nl
By the way, drummer Rob vd Linden is the late Rick v/d Linden his brother.

^^^ I think there will be no problem Erik becaus you already heard three positive opinions (BNeo Symphonic is an era and a sound of Symphonic not yet implemented but ready), the only problem is we will have to wait for the album.
 
I liked the stuff I heard very much.
