Subject: Any Germans contributing on PA?

I regularly read Reviews to keep up to date on Prog. 
Considering that the Prog scene in Germany is huge, there are countless reviews on German artists.
Except that very rarely done by GERMAN contributors! 
I am intrigued as why? Do Germans have their own PA, perhaps?

There's quite a a few. I'm sure they'll crawl out of the woodwork.

Not too many as far as I can tell.

And what always wondered me, very few are familiar with bands of former GDR.
Albums of STERN COMBO MEISSEN, ELECTRA, BAYON and PANTA RHEI are not often reviewed here. 
It seems that prolific and original rock scene of East Germany is generally unknown for many PA members.

Can't tell about German PA, but there are a couple of good sites (in German) deticated to GDR rock (be it prog or hard rock or blues):

Thanks Eugene,
It is true that little is known about bands from East Germany. Perhaps they weren't supported back then for political reasons? What I recall is that back then Pink Floyd's "Atomheart Mother" was available there - in MONO! 

Still, I remain puzzled about the lack of German input here. A bit of a mystery, really.

I saw Grobschnitt in Germany. There's tons of German bands represented here. I interviewed two of them.

Colour Haze is a German band that is on PA but barely anybody has heard... a perfect mix of psychedelic/stoner/desert/space rock, with some krautrock influences as well.

I consider drone metal to be progressive...

He's looking for German forum members.

No problem, just didn't want you scavenging for German bands for no reason :p

Please explain. 
I know of Justin Bieber, but never paid any attention to him. Is he a "proggy" by any chance?

Yes, I am aware of Rivertree and I read the reviews with much interest.
That's one person and a good contributor. Any more out there?

Far from it.  LOL

Thank you Horizons! 
Indeed, I an wondering about contributors from Germany here, not actual artists featured 

My querry was posted earlier today and so far I've received a handful of intelligent responses and a number of completely irrelevant inputs. The ratio is about 1:3,

Scratching my head, should I have bothered in the first place?

There are several people in Germany who contribute here.   A few may see this thread and post here, hard to say.   You may want to be more specific with your request.  You could also start German Prog Fan Scene thread if you wanted but again, you should provide a strong introduction and describe exactly what it is you're interested in.

Iguana, you have answered my querry and thanks for the input.
Indeed, I could only assume that there must be a German Prog site somewhere, judging by the limited involvement of German contributors here on PA.

Some years ago when I was living in Germany, the Prog scene there was great. Each week I attended 2-3 performances by respected Prog musicians. Hence, it was strange that there was seemingly little input from Germany on PA. Now I know. Thanks again!

 How dare you insult the Canadian King of prog. A musical genius in his own right. As a Canadian cannot stand for this brand of  cheap criticism. And I don't want to hear any Celine bashing here either. Last time I checked this was supposed to be a prog site. Respect people. Respect.

I am a German speaking Namibian, living in South Africa, and I am lazy when it comes to writing reviews ...
I often read reviews on Babyblaue-Seiten.de and read the German Magazine Eclipsed when I can get my hands on a copy. Before I discovered PA those where my main source of getting into new Prog artists.

We are here!

I actually post my reviews on the "babyblaue-seiten" ('though I was very lazy the last years). I have noticed some of my fellow reviewers here and there on this site.

For me it's not relevant if a band is from Germany or not. They are either good or they aren't.

TheH > i am in touch with nik, albeit only very occasionally. he suggested that i participate in the BBS, but i could nowadays never get past the entry requirements. however, i continue to be an avid reader and i appreciate its intellectual quality. you'll see more activity from me on progressiveears.com which i find easier to access. my few album reviews remain here, though.

They have to throw me out if it comes to their requirements, wrote a single review in about the last 2 years. But they have mercy.

I post a lot on progresiveears, so maybe we may meet in a thread there.

I would go for "Die Dammundblastvierntviemoven" (traffic jam) by the way
