Epilogue biography
Four-piece neo-prog band from Stoke-on-Trent, England, in the style of PENDRAGON, IQ, ILUVATAR, GALAHAD and especially early MARILLION, a band they owe a lot to. They consist of Gareth Evans on guitars, Chris Frost on keyboards, Scott Evans on bass and bass pedals, and Shaun Lowe on vocals and drums (Lowe also appears on one a GRACE's albums, a similar English neo-prog band). EPILOGUE had previously released a eponymous album on cassette but "Hide" (1994) is their only material available on cd.

The theme is about hiding from your own demons, a song-oriented, spooky album with strong melodies. Its production isn't particularly dynamic but it does feature some good keyboard progressions, some shimmering Rother-esque guitar phrases as well as some interesting, if not very intricate drum pieces (was the vocalist/drummer handling both duties at the same time?). Not bad for a self-produced album, especially considering it is their first.

Worth checking out if you're into neo-prog, old-MARILLION style, and enjoy Rothery-like guitar play.

Epilogue Neo-Prog

Review by b_olariu
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Epilogue from UK is a forgotten and obscure neo prog with one album in their pockets named simply Hide, released in 1994 at Cyclops. This band and album is unfairly unnoticed in neo prog circles, it contains some very beautiful well crafted pieces where the instrumental parts are really strong, the voice is only ok. The arrangements are more then decent where the clean guitar sound and aswell the keybords are melted in a very pleasent way with memorable parts. There are some really fascinating pieces here like In The City a 12 min pure neo prog delight, every instrument works in perfect unit and the result is great, one of the better neo prog pieces from mid '90s to me, another highlight is No Sign Of Life or The flame+ I forgott the opening track. All pieces, even thos more laid back are quite intricate and complicated with a lot to offer, very nice and entertaing album. To me this band was a nice dicovery, I mean I know this album for years but only in past few months I gave them a fair credit and I'm glad I know this album. Similar in sound and in manner of composing with let's say Like Wendy, Sinister Street, Grace (one of the members apear on one Grace album), Final Confflict and even Marillion in places. 3.5 stars for sure, worth to be discovered, even is totaly unkown.

Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to easy livin for the last updates
