I have been listening to it for the last 3 days and i have a lulu review in the hopper. Haunting, spectral and plain delicious is where I sit right now. Truth is that it is hard to categorize as it spans a wide spectrum of style from slightly gothic, psychedelic, symphonic and folk.

Caught this on progstreaming. Fascinating stuff. Sounds like eclectic or folk prog to me, not symphonic. On a side note to the band, please offer digital downloads for a reasonable price, that's what bandcamp is for.

Don't take the down vote from Symph as a rejection Ally. We want it here but just need to find the right home. I actually think that difficulty in nailing down a specific sub-genre speaks highly of the music. Smile

I wouldn't worry too much about sub-vice-mini labeling! 
ITS PROG! Pretty good prog too, IMHO Wink

Thanks, Tszirmay. It seems to me that The Emerald Dawn are clearly symphonic prog (and arguably eclectic prog as well), but the Progarchives Symphonic Prog team don't agree!
Cheers,

Ally from The Emerald Dawn

I have the CD on order, so it will find a home, just sometimes the labels are a little sticky Embarrassed

Hi, Anyone from the Eclectic Team got any views on where to locate The Emerald Dawn within Progarchives? Cheers, Ally

'Searching for the Lost Key' by The Emerald Dawn will be the album of the week on DJ Peter Prog's brand new show on http://progrock.com this evening (Friday, October 24th) at 7.00pm here in the UK (13.00 CST, US). So, if you haven't heard the album yet, here's your chance to hear it for free (and the chance to support a new prog rock show, now only in its second week).

^ Thanks for the update from team Symphonic. Fingers crossed that we get a fairly quick resolution in Eclectic - as you say, this act definitely belongs on PA, and it's gotta be either one or the other of these two subs - I just can't imagine them anywhere else to be honest. Thumbs Up

The Symphonic team is going to pass. The Emerald Dawn definitely belongs here but not in Symphonic. I have sent it to Eclectic.

I could be totally off base too. Just because this is my domain doesn't mean I always get it right. I also haven't heard from my fellow symphomanicas yet so we will see what they have to say.

I agree with Dean's summing up. I personally think this is too complex for Crossover, and I still believe myself that Symphonic is the best place for it...but you guys are the experts - I am just an old guy who sits around listening to music and making a nuisance of himself on PA! LOL I do have a sneaky feeling that it will not have an easy ride in Eclectic though - if that's where it goes next. I feel a game of ping pong may be coming on... Embarrassed

I wasn't suggesting Psych/Space with the Floyd reference. That was just the compositional style that came to mind when I was listening. Could be a bit of Krautrock influence there as well. I was thinking Crossover or Eclectic.
