Chekced their YouTube videos above, and felt they're not progressive enough ... Prog-Related may be their place IMHO.

^ Did you try to post another sample? You posted the wrong link, in that case.

The first sample isn't very convincing, but the second one is bona-fide classic prog.

This is not only pure prog, but amazing too:

I think they stand a good chance for Crossover, I'll notify the team.

Biography of Color:

Color were founded in 1975 in Debrecen, Hungary by Gyula Bokor (keys), Tibor Bokor (bass, vocal), Attila Bokor (drum, vocal). Attila and Tibor were student  of Medical University of Debrecen.

Later ,in 1976 Laszlo Polya (guitar) and Emil Lamer (cello) became a member.

Their first album released in 1978. It was the first symphonic rock style album in Hungary.

Their style  was unique with cello, rich polyphonic vocal, much mellotron. They influnced Pink Floyd, BJH, Genesis, but their style was original.

The guitarist and cellist left the group in 1979. The new guitarist, Miklos Felkai joined in end of 1979.

Their second lp. released in 1982, named Új Színek (New colours). On this album, they changed, the music  became rather simplier Aor-ish rock, in vein of Saga and Styx.

The younger brother Attila Bokor left the group in 1983. He went to Usa, today he lives in Hungary again, He works as a film producer.

In 1984, they did the third album, but this didn’t released until 1999, as bonus of reissue of second album.

The older brothers Gyula Bokor and Tibor Bokor immigrated to Usa in 1985, nowaday they lived in Los Angeles and work as doctor.
