That sub-genre does not exist in ProgArchives, please take a look on the homepage, and which of those do you think suits the best for evaluation from the respective team.

Nomenclature is the bane of the archivist -- choosing the best fit is often quite difficult even for the category managers.

One can really hear the Genesis influence (Gabriel must have influenced that vocalist, and Fish quite possibly). Good band. I'm no Neo expert, and though it has similarities (especially via Genesis), I wouldn't peg it as Neo-Prog.  Reminds me a bit of The Who too (The "It's Hard" era).  I guess symph should check this out (they'd be wiser than me).  And it has "Art Rock" creds too (somewhat Crossover, somewhat Eclectic -- Art Rock was split into separate categories).  I haven't had the chance to listen properly yet, though, and am gone from team work for good reason (progressive incompetence).  SO these are early, too uniformed impressions.  One for the archives, anyway.   Good find.  I'm sure I've heard of it before, somewhere.  Strikes me rather more at this time without listening properly as Art Rock than symph despite the symph band qualities.

Loved the first Dead Heroes Club album and I've been waiting and looking for the new one for a while. The samples they have on myspace sound great. Thumbs Up I've placed a pre-order with them and look forward to hearing the full album. Love the cover too!  
'I Know What I Like' and it's good music, well written and delivered with passion!!
