I don't remember if this has been suggested before, but... why isn't OBLIVION SUN in PA yet? This is an incredible off-shhot from HAPPY THE MAN and deserve a big place in PA in the same genre as HTM. Their debut album is amazing - check some tracks at http://www.myspace.com/oblivionsun

I proposed them a while back and got a negative response; hope they get through this time.

Their CD is absolutely terrific...a little more aggressive and more focused than HTM...terrific.

Late, I had non-PA things I had to deal with through February, but it was being discussed before in Eclectic sans moi, but I have now voted yes for Oblivion Sun.

sorry I'm at this late.. I know HtM is in Eclectic though I must say Oblivion Sun has a good bit of Heavy material but I also hear Fusion and Symph, so EcProg is probably best for now  (must get that album!)

I notice that the post-HTM, pre-Oblivion Sun, Wyatt & Whitaker project... "Pedal Giant Animals" has made it into the archive!
 
Excellent!

That would be a good motivation to make this long overdue inclusion - like I said in some other thread I've lost track off, OBLIVION SUN sounds very Eclectic Prog to me and it would make perfect sense with the PA standards applied to HTM and Whitaker-Wyatt. Anyway, if it is regarded as some other sub-genre, it will be weird to me but still OBLIVION SUN must be here as soon as possible... if not earlier!! LOL
 
    Kind regards.

I see by the charts EcTeam has rejected them.. as I said awhile ago, I'd be glad to take them in Heavy, any consensus on this?   ..frankly I've always felt HtM belongs in Symph but that's a seperate issue I think

Believe me, Heavy prog would be very inaccurate: only two tracks bear real hard sounding guitars, and mostly in a similar vein to Holding Pattern, not Naikaku or Uriah Heep. Definitely, it isn't pop-related enough as to fit the Crossover prog definition.
 
Symphonic might as well be the second best choice  -  I have no big problems with that. I'm a HTM fanatic, and I know the Pedal Giant Animals and Oblivion Sun albums almost by heart.
 
     Kind regards.

Lats night I listened to the OBLIVIONS SUN album from the perspective of a PA Collaborator --  the firs tidea that came to mind was that i was more connected to HAPPY THE MAN than PEDAL GIANT ANIMALS. Of course, the inclusion of a couple of harder-than-usual tracks made it clear that it wasn't a HTM-clone, but those Moog solos, those interactions between two keyboards, those sax flourishes, all of them sounded so familiar to me...
 
Like I said in an earlier post, the energetic side of OBLIVION SUN is definitely more similar to a punchy symphonic prog (HOLDING PATTERN, "Danger Money"-era UK) than to heavy prog.
 
I'm saying nothing new here... just sharing a thought that had come to mind last night. It wa also a "trick" to keep the thread going on.
 
    Kind regards.

this is the danger of placing the importance of the sub-genre over getting the band included.  What is more important?

if the man offers to take it...  take him up on the offer

YONHOSAGO, a great, obscure avant-prog band from Chile has just been added. And so are a bunch of technical metal, post-rock, prog-related and electronic bands...
 
... SO WHY IS OBLIVION SUN BEING LEFT IN OBLIVION?...
 
This is not an entirely obscue band, and their HTM roots should make it really familiar to any prog page (any except for the Archives?)
Attention members from all teams, check this band in right now for God's sake!!!
 
   Kind regards.
