NEO-PROG

A Progressive Rock Sub-genre


From Progarchives.com, the ultimate progressive rock music website

Neo-Prog definition

Neo-Progressive rock (more commonly "Neo-Prog") is a subgenre of Progressive Rock that originally was used to describe artists strongly influenced by the classic symphonic prog bands that flourished during the 1970s. At the beginning of the neo-prog movement, the primary influence was early to mid-70's Genesis. Debate over when Neo-Prog actually came into being often takes place, with some asserting it began with Marillion's Script for a Jester's Tear in 1983. Others contend it began with Twelfth Night at the dawn of the 80s, while some even suggest the popular symphonic prog band Genesis gave rise to Neo-Prog with their 1976 album, A Trick of the Tail.

If one analyses the progressive movement just before 1980, then some albums which heavily influenced the Neo-Prog movement easily come to mind: Steve Hackett - Spectral Mornings, Genesis - Wind & Wuthering, Genesis - And Then There Were Three, Genesis - Seconds Out, Saga - Saga, all the Camel albums between Breathless and The Single Factor included, and some Eloy's albums, especially Silent Cries And Mighty Echoes.

This new form of progressive rock originated in the UK, and is most strongly associated with bands such as Marillion, Pendragon and IQ; and while theatrical stage antics were a part of the live performances of many artists exploring this subset of the progressive rock genre it's the musical elements that are key to the genre; typified by the use of atmospheric guitar and synth soloing with symphonic leanings, with a tendency towards floating synth layers and dreamy soloing. An additional trait is the use of modern synths rather than vintage analogue synths and keyboards. The main reasons for Neo-Progressive artists to be separated from the ones exploring Symphonic Prog in the first place are the above, as well as a heavier emphasis on song-form and melody than some of their earlier symphonic counterparts.

As time went by other artists appeared that also deviated from the norms created by the classic wave of progressive rock artists in the 70's. The late 70's had given the world punk music; the 80's gave the world new wave; and the 90's grunge. These, as well as other forms, had a tremendous amount of influence outside of the progressive rock realm. The advent of the modern synth also inspired artists like Tomita, Vangelis and Kitaro to explore dreamier musical works.

These and other forms of more or less newly made musical genres influenced artists exploring progressive rock as well. Although many artists did so within the framework of 70's progressive rock, more and more artists developed a sound and style so heavily influenced by these more recent musical developments that categorizing them within the existing subgenres of progressive rock became increasingly difficult.

While the Neo-Progressive genre initially consisted of artists exploring a modernized version of Symphonic Prog, these days artists coined as Neo-Progressive cover a multitude of musical expressions, where the common denominator is the inclusion - within a progressive rock framework - of musical elements developed just prior to and after 1980. The Neo-Progressive genre in it's refined form thus covers a vast musical territory, to some extent covering all existing subsets of progressive rock and also searching out towards genres as different as new age on one side and punk and metal on the other.

Arena Neo-Prog

Review by javajeff

5 stars This is the biggest surprise of 2018 for me. I skipped the last album, and almost skipped this one based on the cover alone. I could circle around to The Unquiet Sky later, but right now I am going to spend time letting Double Vision marinate for a while. I do have most of their albums, and Double Vision is my absolute favorite. Paul Manzi on vocals is excellent, and everything else is just perfect. It starts off with Zhivago Wolf, which has a stellar sing along melody, and musicianship of the highest quality. The songs that follow are just as good, and then it ends with the extra proggy The Legend Of Elijah Shade. I absolutely love this album, and I could not recommend it enough. It is a must get for progressive rock fans. 4.5 stars.

Live And Let Live
Twelfth Night Neo-Prog

Review by TenYearsAfter

5 stars "Lebensraum for megalomaniacs" (We Are Sane - Twelfth Night)

This line was written in 1982 by the late Geoff Mann, how actual!

In the first part of The Eighties the 'new British progressive rock movement' started to blossem (with the London Marquee as the beating heart), speerheaded by Marillion and in their slipstream formations like IQ, Pendragon, Pallas, Abel Ganz, Solstice and, last not but least, Twelfth Night. They were 'a bit different', to say the least. In 2010 I did an interview with Brian Devoil and Andy Sears (they had just re-founded Twelfth Night and released the 2-CD and 2-DVD album MMX) and finally I got my chance to ask about their personal musical taste. And how the press did their best to pigeonhole their unique sound in the Eighties. Well, about the personal taste of the Twelfth Night members, according to Brian and Andy "this ranged from U2, Simple Minds and The Cure to early Queen and punk". And they quoted fellow Twelfth Night member Clive Mitten who said "that he wanted to sound as a cross between Van Halen and Frankie Goes To Hollywood!". Brian and Andy remembered that the press often compared them with Roxy Music, but also named Twelfth Night "the Duran Duran of the prog". Reading these words you can imagine why Twelfth Night sounds ' a bit different'.

This review is about the live album Live And Let Live that was recorded on November the 4th and 5th, 1983, in the legendary London music temple the Marquee Club. It was the farewell gig from their charismatic singer and frontman Geoff Mann, he had decided to go solo. In February 1993 he died, due to cancer, this review is dedicated to this wonderful and creative human being.

1. The Ceiling Speaks (8:26) : The atmosphere alternates between a mid-tempo, slow downs and bombastic outburst, embellished with powerful guitarwork, catchy synthesizer flights and Geoff Mann his distinctive emotional voice.

2. The End Of The Endless Majority (3:18) : A wonderful instrumental track that features a duet between the acoustic Ovation guitar (flageolets and twanging) and sensitive electric guitar play. In the end a surprising accellaration with propulsive rhythm guitar and howling electric guitar runs. It sounds unique, subtle and fragile, and showcases the strong compositional skills of the band.

3. We Are Sane (12:04) : This is a typical Twelfth Night longer track that blends Seventies symphonic rock elements with the Eighties New Wave sound, unique. The intro contains a cynical combination of "bla bla bla" and words like "unemployment'" and "the enemy" by Geoff Mann. Then soaring strings and high pichted, soprano-like vocals, gradually the music becomes more lush with wonderful volume pedal electric guitar play and Geoff his cynical voice. Suddenly a bombastic outburst featuring distorted guitar and fat synthesizer sounds. In the second part the music alternates between dreamy, catchy up-tempo and bombastic. This is wonderfully coloured with howling electric guitar runs, a deep Moog Tauras bass pedal sound, topped by Geoff his outstanding vocals, from tender to powerful. In the end Geoff theatrically shouts WE ARE SANE, then a short bombastic outburst, what an exciting and compelling music!

4. Fact And Fiction (5:27) : Another intro with spoken words by Geoff, this time a parody on politicians, "we are the fact and they are the fiction". Then a tight up-tempo beat with tasteful and varied keyboard work, topped with powerful vocals, "don't make me laugh, haha" Geoff sings with that distinctive cynical undertone.

5. The Poet Sniffs A Flower (4:03) : The other instrumental, starting with soaring keyboards, twanging electric guitar, then wonderfully build up to a fluent rhythm featuring dynamic interplay and howling electric guitar runs, how exciting!

6. Sequences (17:14) : Originally an instrumental, Geoff re-wrote it, fitted lyrics into it and the new version became 'a classic'. It's Twelfth Night their 'magnum opus', their answer to Supper's Ready, Karn Evil 9, Close To The Edge, Echoes, Grendel, but different. We can enjoy lots of shifting moods, from dreamy to up-tempo and bombastic, in the symphonic rock tradition. But the unique colouring with the guitar and keyboards is the Twelfth Night trademark: from flashy flights on the Moog Prodigy (the 'poor man's Minimoog') to biting wah-wah drenched guitar soli ,and from soaring strings to propulsive guitar riffs, often accompanied by the clapping cheerful crowd. And topped with Geoff his powerful and emotional vocals, with some exciting theatrical outbursts. In the end a short sumptuous eruption, with a pumping bass, tight drum beats and sensitive electric guitar play. "Seventies symphonic rock meets Eighties New Wave", Twelfth Night their trademark, here in its full splendour.

7. Creepshow (12:06) : This is Twelfth NIght their most unique and captivating composition with great lyrics, vocals and musical ideas. First a dreamy climate with tender keyboard runs, subtle electric guitar play and Geoff his distinctive voice. Then lots of shifting moods, coloured with Moog synthesizer flights, inventive guitar work (including the 'hammering' sound) and dominant bass runs. Geoff delivers lots of vocal ideas, theatrical, powerful and especially the part with spoken words is very compelling. Finally a bombastic atmosphere with moving guitar, loaded with howling runs, supported by sumptuous keyboards, this is 24-carat symphonic rock, but different, goose bumps!

8. East Of Eden (5:14) : This is a basically a straightforward rock song with a tight beat, but wonderfully embellished with tasteful keyboards, cynical vocals and in the end again a moving guitar solo with howling runs.

9. Love Song (8:29) : The lyrics in this beautiful, very emotional and compelling composition are rooted in Geoff his religious ideas, he liked to spread the words of Jesus that we should love each other. Because "jealousy is such a parasite, hatred a disease" he sings. The music matches perfectly with these words: first dreamy with tender vocals, twanging guitars and soaring keyboards, then a slow beat featuring wonderful volume pedal driven electric guitar and finally bombastic with very moving guitar work. Goose bumps, wet eyes, community singing, what a great atmosphere in this final track, Geoff his final contribution, and perhaps his best!

For me this is one of the masterpieces of the new British progressive rock movement, far away from those Nineties Neo Prog bands like Shadowland, Everon and Arena with their polished and predictable sound. Here it's variety, adventure, emotion, lyrics and ideas in an unique meeting between the worlds of Seventies symphonic rock and Eighties New Wave, highly recommended!

The Clockwork Fable
Gandalf's Fist Neo-Prog

Review by kev rowland
Special Collaborator Crossover Prog Team

5 stars Some years ago I came across the debut album from Gandalf's Fist, then lost touch with them again until I received an email one day stating that to celebrate the two year anniversary of their latest album they were providing a free download of the first act. A short flurry of emails between myself and Dean Marsh, and I soon had a copy of the three-CD set to listen to. I knew there was something very special going on here even before I listened to it, as there were guest appearances by Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon), Blaze Bayley (Ex- Iron Maiden), Matt Stevens (The Fierce and the Dead) and Dave Oberl' (Gryphon). The album also featured the voice acting talents of the likes of Mark Benton (Waterloo Road) and Zach Galligan (Gremlins) among others. Then on top of that there was the press release. If an album is self-released I am lucky to get a page of (sometimes) useful background information, at a maximum two. No, what I have here is a 16 page full colour guide to Cogtopolis, with diagrams, illustrations, a complete history of the formation of the city, how it all works plus so much more.

Yes boys and girls, what we have here is a full-blown concept album on steroids. In some ways it is mix between the concept albums of Clive Nolan and the science fiction stories with music of Hibernal. There is far more acting and drama than one would hear from the former, and far more songs and rockiness than one would get from the latter. In many ways this has moved far away from the concept album format, and into a full-blown film for the ears. I soon found that the only way to listen to the album was by giving it my full attention, as if I didn't I soon lost track of whatever else I was trying to do anyway. The interplay between the progressive rock music and the dramatic storyline is seamless, with both providing dynamic interplay.

I kept 'seeing' what was going on in my mind, and also wondering if they were ever going to publish a book to go with this, as I can easily imagine this story being greatly expanded. I am not going to give anything away about the storyline itself, apart from saying that it takes place under the earth's surface, as due to man's maltreatment of nature humanity were sent underground some two hundred years previously. From the very beginning, when the lamplighter comes across a traveller, I was hooked, desperately wanting to understand where the story was going to take me. That the music was heavily influenced by neo prog and contained wonderful vocals performances and great musicianship and melodies was the real icing on the cake. I was surprised just how often I was reminded of the mighty Legend, as they and Galahad have obviously been fairly important inspirations behind this mighty endeavour, as has Ayreon and IQ.

A triple CD concept album, of this depth and magnitude, is released very rarely indeed. I can honestly say that it is one of the most impressive pieces of work I have come across in the last five years, and is essential listening to anyone who loves good music.

Nth Ascension Neo-Prog

Review by Kingsnake

2 stars With people namedropping Saga and Pendragon I got curious.

As of lately I''ve grown weary of progmetal and neoprog and other genres wich solely rely on studio-power and electronic instruments. On the other hand I love electronic music (psybient, psytrance etc.), but I'm diverting.

I think with my renewed interest in more analogue based-music and seventies progrock aswell as modern bands playing in the old stylistics and have an retro-sound, a lot of modern neoprog and progmetal sounds too sterile and devoid of soul and passion.

That's exactly what's going on with Nth Ascension. Although I can hear how skilled the musicians are, it frustrates me. It's like getiing hit by a freighttrain and dragged on by that freighttrain for an hour. It's much too much for me.

Also I really don;t like the leadvocals. His timbre (?) annoys me. The music is more in the vein of Arena and Galahad than Saga or Pendragon. Where Saga is more pop-oriented and Pendragon has much more soul, Nth Ascension is basically continuing the music Marillion once made.

I can recommend this to any fan of Arena, Galahad and old Marillion and neoprogkitch, but I cannot recommend this to people who want to hear subtle music with room to breathe.

Review by kev rowland
Special Collaborator Crossover Prog Team

5 stars For their 2016 album, Nth Ascension made the move to American label MRR, and the confidence they gained from the critical acclaim of their debut is clearly apparent. Whereas the debut 'Ascension of Kings' was an excellent album, this one just seems to have that touch more depth in every area. There are three songs more than ten minutes in length, and as well as channelling the likes of Pendragon and Clive Nolan there is also far more in the way of Pink Floyd, Magnum and Saga. The music is arranged in such a way that Alan's vocals are very much to the fore of everything that is going on, which to me is a huge benefit as he has more than a touch of Roger Chapman and particularly Cyrus (Citizen Cain) about what he is doing, although I am aware that it may not be to everyone's tastes.

It is a class album that is full of the Nineties prog scene in so many ways, and anyone who lived through that musical period such as I will be listening to this with a huge smile on their face, yet it has been brought both up to date in terms of production as well as looking back into the Seventies for inspiration here and there. Craig is a great drummer, driving the tunes from the back and adding fills and stylings when the need is right, always working the kit without overpowering the rest of the guys. His brother Gavin does far more to lock down the sound and keep it tight, but also moves away from grounding songs when it is time for him to add additional melody. Their dad either riffs, solos, or sits back and has a rest and does nothing, so that when he does make an entrance it always has an impact. Then of course there is Ten keyboard player and solo artist Darrel, providing curtains of sounds, or taking the lead, or adding dynamic piano, whatever is required.

The more I played this album the more I enjoyed it, as the more I gained from it. While the debut was strong, this is far more distilled, controlled, and so thoroughly enjoyable.

Review by kev rowland
Special Collaborator Crossover Prog Team

4 stars In 2009, drummer Craig Walker was asked to stand in for a local band, where he met keyboard player Darrel Treece-Birch, who was also helping them out. This led to them deciding to start a new project together, and they brought along Darrel's long time collaborators Martin Walker (who just happens to be Craig's dad) and singer/bassist Alan 'Spud' Taylor. After the release of a demo, Gavin Walker (Craig's brother, Martin's son ? are you following this?) was brought in as bassist to allow Alan to concentrate on singing. At the time of the release (2014) Darrel was in two other bands, one of which was Ten (with whom he is still with today), and singer Gary Hughes helped out by engineering and producing Alan, as well as providing some backing vocals. But these guys are a totally different style of music to what Darrel plays in Ten.

Some people will argue that these guys are neo prog, while others may look to crossover, but it is honestly just easier to state that they are a very English sounding prog band. Classic Pendragon have obviously been an influence, but so have some of the more keyboard- oriented pastoral bands of the past, and every time I play the classic "Weight of The World" the vocals remind me of some of the songs from Roger Glover's 'The Butterfly Ball'! I think what I like about the album is that there is so little stress within it, it is quite laid back at times, but they know when the guitars need to make an impact without always crunching out riffs. They are all fine musicians, but are quite happy to sit back and often let Darrel lead the musical flow while Alan sits over the top of it all with wonderfully melodious vocals. They close with the eighteen-minute-long "Vision" which allows them to musically stretch their wings, yet still keep it all contained and incredibly melodic. Driving, pastoral yet rocky when they need to be, melodic, musical, this is a really nice album indeed.

Discoveries
Seti Neo-Prog

Review by TenYearsAfter

4 stars "Overlooked New Latin American Prog"

I am still delighted about all those bands from the New Latin American Prog Movement that emerged in the last two decades: Angulart, Astralis, Supay, Amagrama, R-U Kaiser, William Gray, Bauer, Flor De Loto, Toccata, to name a few, so many quality bands, incredible! A strong feature is their pleasant blend of skills and emotion, for me always a Big Plus in Latin American prog. Another interesting progrock formation from that exciting and captivating continent is Chilean Seti, a project from multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and designer Claudio Momberg (known for his collaboration with Clive Nolan). Between 2005 and 2015 Seti released only 3 studio-albums, along a live CD in 2011. I was very pleased with their very tasteful debut CD entitled Life Signs featuring moving guitar work (evoking Rothery and Latimer) and wonderful vocals. This review is about their next album entitled Discoveries, released in 2010.

The seven compositions contain lots of compelling parts and bombastic eruptions, layered with sensitive guitar play and majestic Mellotron waves (choir ' and violin section). Especially in the long and alternating opener A Draconian Tale, the strong build up in The Inner Outside and Uruqhart Castle and the final track Contact (including a long and flashy synthesizer solo).

Claudio delivers two instrumentals on this album: the electronically sounding Underground and the dreamy Falling Leaves, fine examples of his tasteful and varied sound.

My highlight is the song Ellipse, featuring the distinctive voice of known and prolific progrock singer Damian Wilson (among other things Threshold, Landmarq, Headspace, Star One, Ayreon, Mostly Autumn and Rick Wakeman), in combination with swirling Hammond organ and fiery guitar work (by Aly, from Mexican band Toccata), very exciting!

A strong second effort by Chilean Seti, especially recommended to the fans of the more symphonic rock oriented Neo- Prog bands, like early Marillion, IQ and Pallas.

Arena Neo-Prog

Review by Progrussia

3 stars Another album in the line of similarly-sounding recent Arena releases - slick, but safe, for them, spinning pompously vague tales of the supernatural and fallibility of reality in a heavy adult-oriented rock fashion. The songs are catchy, to be sure, but predictable, made from familiar ingredients - a loud riff (the intro to Zhivago Wolf even made me think that this was going to be Arena's most metal album, but, thankfully, no), a spacey break, a softer vocal-driven verse, a wailing guitar. The listener is also treated with Arena's longest track - a 22-minute epic. Which is, well, an OK epic, more diverse than the rest, but not yet a magnum opus. Like the Unquiet Sky album, it is best thought of as a story set to music, something, it seems to me, that Mr. Nolan has been lately most interested in.

Double Vision
Arena Neo-Prog

Review by The Jester

5 stars It's almost 3 years since the release of The Unquiet Sky and Arena returned with a new album. Double Vision was released a few weeks ago, and as it seems, it is the best album the band recorded since Contagion (2003). In Double Vision Arena re-discover their musical identity, and present an album that totally worth its money. Personally speaking, I didn't like the two previous albums as much as their older ones, so I had no idea what to expect with this new one.

In my opinion, this album can be characterized as Arena's come back! With the heavy riffs of John Mitchell's guitar, the beautiful passages of Clive Nolan's keyboards, the nice melodic turns, the very good compositions and the excellent overall performance of the band, it is definitely a great album!

Double Vision includes 7 songs, all of them good ones, and has a total running time of almost an hour. It begins with Zhivago Wolf, a rather powerful song, (which I didn't like so much to be honest), but right after that, the rest of the album is a real treat for the ears and the soul. The album is closing in the best way possible, with the 22-minute-long epic The Legend of Elijah Shade, a really strong composition, which is going to be loved by every Progressive Rock fan, with its endless turns and changes.

Favourite songs (so far): The Mirror Lies, Scars, Red Eyes, Paradise of Thieves, The Legend of Elijah Shade.

This is a very serious piece of work and I recommend it to all the Progressive Rock and Neo Prog fans. Give this album a try and you won't regret it!

My Rating: 4.5 stars.

Yuka & Chronoship Neo-Prog

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator PSIKE Team & Band Submissions

4 stars My first encounter with Japanese artist Yuka Funakoshi, composer and keyboarder. She's heading this project since 2009, alongside with some professional session musicians on bass, drums and guitar. Here we are experiencing her fourth album in the meanwhile. Remarkable, this really hit me by surprise. You will explore tricky, predominantly instrumental and heavy weighed rock songs, which are showing a clear prog signature. State of the art when it comes to the production, but also equipped with a recognizable favour for the 1970's spirit of optimism. This especially concerning Yuka's cool organ and piano presence. And nice to hear Sonja Kristina initially participating with her unquestionably distinct voice.

Soon 'The Argo Suite' continues with the thrilling The Ship Argos though, which features a significant contrast due to a bunch of metal guitar riffs contributed by Takashi Miyazawa. That really works quite well, appealing! Atomic Rooster, Colosseum, ELP, this are somewhat evident references when listening to Yuka Funakoshi furthermore. And A Dragon That Never Sleeps sets the focus more on a fusion fundament. Finally the charming Did You Find A Star? even offers some male vocals by Hiroyuki Izuda. Skilled musicians at work here, recommended! Released via Cherry Red Records this is a really fantastic 60 minutes lasting outcome, which impresses me the more I'm listening.
