A search in the public forum reveals nothing for this band, who were featured on the Progstreaming website some months back.
 
However, we have this:

No point making a proper thread for this band, since they appear to have already 'had their chips', but I just thought that folks out here in the big wide World should know that they have at least passed through here...  Ermm

I can appreciate your frustration David. From the above we can see they've had seven favourable votes, but hopefully some future release will see them finding a place here eventually.

Let's hope so Chris.  'A New Dawn' is a very fine album indeed, but because it covers several styles during the course of its almost 80 minutes of music, no team seems prepared to commit to them.
 
Shame that the Crossover boys didn't include an S.A.E. when they sent this over to Metal...Either that or a table tennis bat!! LOL

^ Dave, this band is still under evaluation, my opinion was stated in the thread, so let's just wait for the team decision. Several teams had their input so I think this will be a well-thought of decision in the end.

Thanks for this input Thanos - I was a bit concerned that with two 'reject' votes cast in Metal (rather than 'move') and three other teams already having had a look (listen), they were pretty well done for. Fingers, toes and all other available appendages crossed... Tongue

I suspect the problem here is simply that it isn't Progressive Rock and certainly not Progressive Melodic Rock. It is what you'd get if you tried to invent Progressive Rock from Progressive Metal without every hearing what Progressive Rock sound like. This is to Prog Rock what Power Metal is to Prog Metal - close but not close enough. I can understand Xover & Heavy not wanting them.

The metal team finished their evaluation now, and it seems that this band will not make into the database indeed.

A great shame as far as I personally am concerned, but if it isn't heard by people on here as prog, then I accept that. My own copy will not be moving from the 'prog' folder where it is currently stored though, despite this verdict. We each have our own interpretation of the styles of music that can be associated with this word, I guess...and my 'prog' folder is probably a good deal more inclusive than most. LOL
Thanks very much for updating the thread, Olav. Thumbs Up
 
I guess it can be locked off now. Embarrassed

Well, I'd have certainly voted 'yes' for inclusion when I was part of the Crossover team, 'cos that's where I think it belongs. OK, the prog in this album is mixed with AOR, Melodic Power Metal and I guess a host of other styles too over the course of its not inconsiderable length, but does this really mean that the band doesn't belong here at all?

And I would have voted 'no' for inclusion when I was part of the Crossover team, so there you go, opinions differ.
