SYMPHONIC PROG

A Progressive Rock Sub-genre


From Progarchives.com, the ultimate progressive rock music website

Symphonic Prog definition

Symphonic is without doubt the sub-genre that includes the most bands in Progressive Rock because for many people it's almost synonymous classic Prog, something easy to understand being that most of the classic and/or  pioneer bands released music that could be included in this sub-genre, except JETHRO TULL and PINK FLOYD (who still blended some symphonic elements), even KING CRIMSON who very soon expanded their horizons to more experimental music, made their debut with a Symphonic album, "In the Court of the Crimson King" which is a cornerstone in the development of the genre.

The main characteristics of Symphonic are the ones that defined all Progressive Rock: (There's nothing 100% new under the sun) which among others are:
  • Mixture of elements from different genres.
  • Complex time signatures.
  • Lush keyboards.
  • Explorative and intelligent lyrics, in some cases close to fantasy literature, Sci Fi and even political issues.
  • Non commercial approach
  • Longer format of songs

In this specific case the main characteristic is the influence of Classical music (understood as Orchestral works created from the late Gothic to Modern Classical) using normally more complex structure than other related sub-genres like Neo Progressive (That's why sometimes the borderline that divides Symphonic from Neo is so unclear being that is based mostly in a degree of complexity rather than in an evident structural difference)..It is easy to find long keyboard solos reminiscent of Johan Sebastian Bach or melodic works that could have been written by Handel.

As in any other genre, different Symphonic bands had different approaches to Classical music, for example YES and GENESIS are mainly influenced by the Baroque and Classical periods, while EMERSON LAKE & PALMER has a predilection for post Romantic and modern authors like Mussorgsky, Rimsky Korsakov, Bartok or Ginastera, being that their sound is less melodic and more aggressive.

The peak of the genre starts in 1969 and lasts until the mid/late 70's  (more precisely until the release of A Trick of the Tail), when the genre begins to  blend more mainstream influences that took to the birth of Neo Progressive (a new approach for a new decade).


It is important to remember that even though the creative peak of Symphonic Progressive ended before the 80's, we can find a second birth in the 90's coming from the Scandinavian countries (specially Sweden with ANGLAGARD or PAR LINDH PROJECT) and even bands that still in the 21st Century recreate music from this period like SPOCK'S BEARD or ECHOLYN.

Before ending this short description I feel necessary to say (In order to be strictly accurate) that the term Symphonic is not 100% exact, because these bands very rarely played symphonies and was probably used because the music that influenced the genre was performed by Symphony Orchestras, but it is so widely accepted by the Progressive Rock community that would be absurd and futile for anybody to attempt a change after so much time.

Blomljud
Moon Safari Symphonic Prog

Review by Abandoner135

5 stars Blomljud, officially stylized as [blomljud], the 2008 second album by Swedish progressive rockers Moon Safari, is an album sure to satiate the palate of progressive music fans looking for a modern band that uses influences from the genre's classic era whilst also forging a truly unique piece of work. Although taking influence from Genesis, Yes, The Moody Blues, and even the Beach Boys, Blomljud thankfully never stumbles over itself to become a mere carbon-copy of its forefathers. Instead, the band use these predecessors as a mere "rough sketch", or inspiration, for the music herein. Petter Sandström and Simon Åkesson are credited as the main songwriters on the album and they enlist a host of musicians to flesh out their vision on Blomljud. The vocals (sung entirely in English) are uplifting and brimming with positivity, and the band use their Beach Boys-esque harmonies to create a rich and welcoming vibe. Several of the members take on vocal duties and this gives a nice variety to Blomljud. The entire album feels sunny and summery, which makes perfect sense considering its title translates to "flower sound" in English. This is no Van der Graaf Generator or King Crimson record, and never reaches the extreme dark corners of music that those artists typically delve into. In terms of instrumentation, there are lots of plucky acoustic guitars, rich keys/synth, a few overdriven electric guitar lead lines and flourishes, and some especially solid backing instruments including drums, bass, and various percussion. The instrumental highlights on Blomljud are absolutely the abundant and multi-layered guitar work and the hauntingly beautiful keyboards. The acoustic guitar is particularly reminiscent of Steve Hackett/Mike Rutherford/Anthony Phillips on the classic '70s Genesis albums. These are terrifically competent musicians but, admiringly, they never feel the need to overstay their welcome or show off for the sake of stealing the limelight. Perhaps the biggest strength of the album is that it never starts to creep into boring or unnecessary territory, despite Blomljud's lofty runtime (104 minutes). Each note and segment are carefully composed and have a reason for existing amongst the subtext of each track, even on the album's epic, the nearly 32-minute, "Other Half of the Sky", which effectively leaps and weaves through countless segments and moods like a modern-day "Supper's Ready". Overall, this is a fantastic record worthy of being deemed a classic amongst progressive music. The adept instrumentation, lavish vocals and sheer composition skills of Moon Safari on Blomljud are incredibly impressive and showcase their distinct strengths as a cohesive unit. Don't be put off by the length of this album--it's so strong that it never truly seems as long as it is and will most definitely warrant repeat listens. Strongly recommended for fans of Genesis, Yes, Styx, the Beatles and the Beach Boys.

Never Let Go
Camel Symphonic Prog

Review by judahbenkenobi

4 stars An excellent selection of tracks from all Camel albums up to 1993. If you're looking for a live introduction to this criminally underrated band, this might be a good start. And I would recommend disc 1 as your starting point. Disc 2 was a live performance of the album that had been released a few months earlier, "Dust and Dreams", which is not among my favorites. Nevertheless, these versions are generally better than the studio versions, perhaps because they are not burdened with the overproduction that characterized D&D and because the musicians really put their whole energy into them. Take for example Rose of Sharon, which had very bad vocals in the studio album, but now they are subtituted by Andy Latimer's voice. He has not a perfect or enviable voice, but it certainly makes up for the flaws of the original.

The Scream of Nature
Lunar Clock Symphonic Prog

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator PSIKE Team & Band Submissions

4 stars This quartet has its homebase in the Netherlands and provides a very nice progressive art rock album with strong symphonic traces. Apart from the origin and the involved musicians there's yet, at this time, not much known about LUNAR CLOCK. However, the debut album 'The Scream Of Nature' reflects a very intensive engagement in the works of Edvard Munch, a Norwegian painter. Alongside with the album title the cover art shows a clear reference to his probably most famous work 'The Scream' from 1895. All the ten songs are inspired by different paintings. When it comes to the particular deeper sense ... they recently have started to describe their approach on the official facebook page.

Without exception all musicians are (inter)acting on a high level. Robin Boer serves fine lead vocals, the kick-off Frieze comes with great attitude definitely, while setting up an ambitious polyphonic presence. And moreover he rules while taking care of diversified keyboard stuff, oftenly symphonic tinged as noted beforehand. The second track Skrik aditionally adds a space ambient note, while the excellent A Winter Storm On Spring Blossom provides jazzy electric piano too, lively bass input and expressive guitar solo on top. And finally Part III of Metabolism puts another cherry on the cake.

Do not skip! Otherwise you might miss something. I would say there is not any centerpiece song given really. Many contemporary genre album are provided with an extended title track, where the respective crew is willing to give all blood and sweat at once. Each and every song comes relatively short here, but I'm sure the concept includes that you absolutely should listen to the entire album in one go. Respect! LUNAR CLOCK have recorded an essential addition to your progressive rock collection.

Spektra
Karfagen Symphonic Prog

Review by Matti
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Karfagen from Ukraine is a great symphonic prog band sovereignly led by composer and keyboard player Antony Kalugin. His latest works have made a very positive (5-star) impression on me, but this 8th Karfagen album has a different approach which is less up to my prog taste.

Whereas e.g. Echoes from Within Dragon Island (2019) is full of accessible, lush melodies, has mostly a mellow, romantic symph prog atmosphere reminiscent of Camel, and is a poetry-inspired album alternating between sung and instrumental parts, Spektra is basically (almost entirely) instrumental and much more muscular prock rock as a whole. In its extravagant and energetic playfulness it comes closer to ELP than Camel -- I don't mean Kalugin's composing style would notably remind me of Keith Emerson's, but you get the point, right?

The 63-minute album has 16 tracks, only the opening title track being over six minutes, but they form three entities, or "Phases", with a sense of an epic approach. The majority of Phase 1 is frankly too much of a rollercoaster ride for me. The intense Latin chanting on 'Terra Incognita' doesn't help in that matter. But the sixth track 'Homonymous Pt. 1' is a pleasant, Steve Hackett/ Anthony Phillips reminding little piece starring acoustic guitar, as is Pt. 2 later on the album. Also even shorter 'Angel Tears' is a calm and moody oasis amidst faster stuff.

Phase 2 is loaded with various keyboards. 'Aurora' is a nice piece with soaring melodies and some female vocalise. The first part of Phase 3 contains accordion and is followed by beautifully melodic 'Natural Charm'. So, after all Spektra does have also the softer side of Kalugin's musical expression, if in rather small doses. I round my 3,5 stars upwards for the good-looking cover art and the presumption that many progheads probably find this album more interesting than the slightly mellower later works.

Total Pressure - Live In Concert 1984
Camel Symphonic Prog

Review by judahbenkenobi

3 stars The 80's is not my favorite decade, for Camel, and for any other thing. Why would I want to see and hear a live show from Camel's lowest points in its discography? The reasons were very simple: first, the only live recordings I owned by this wonderful band were a downloaded from YouTube video called Moondances, and 1975's A Live Record. Second, I wanted a live version of "Lies", because my copy of Nude (a remastered CD release) has a live performance of that album but is sadly lacking that track, my favorite of that album.

So here in PA I found out that not only did this DVD contained that song, but it had a surprisingly high rating. So after a thorough and difficult search I finally got hold of a copy.

What can I say about this concert video? I have to swallow my pride and admit that it was a lot better than I thought. Of course, it is far from perfect, and I wouldn't compare it to other, more recent concerts, like the latest one at the Royal Albert Hall, simply because I haven't seen any other. In spite of including mostly 80's material, I recognize the good performance these guys put out. The setlist has some good choices, like the inclusion of three tracks from Nude, one of my favorite Camel albums. There's only one track from each "The Single Factor" and " I Can See... " which is probably for the better, and the bulk of the setlist is taken from their newest album to that point, "Stationary Traveler" . Although I really didn't like that album very much, most of the songs included here sound better than the originals. A notable exception is "Fingertips" , which was an ok song in the studio album, but here Chris Rainbow's high-pitched voice ruined everything. There's only a few older songs, especially in the "Added Pressure" section, which is something a long time fan is sure to enjoy.

There are some issues with this DVD, or course. First of all, the poor camera work. I was never able to discern the actual position of the players on stage, since there was never a clear shot of it. Up to this moment, I'm only sure about Andy's position center stage; as of the rest of the band, I have no idea if they are left or right stage. And there's the poor direction and editing, in which the musician who should be in focus is sometimes left out. The very special guest, Pete Bardens, is never seen clearly, and as I said before, his position on stage is not clear either.

That leads me to the other deficiency. To my taste, three keyboards (and when Pete shows up, four keyboards) is just too much, especially for a band whose central figure is the guitar player. Maybe Andy was just trying to be humble, and to not take the credit for everything, but this time he went too far. There is nothing one single keyboard player can do with the right technology, even in the 80's. For the sake of tradition, two keyboardists were ok, but three, four, is just much more than I can tolerate.

A surprisingly good DVD, but still, not essential. 3.5 stars rounded to 3

Freaks Of Nature
Kansas Symphonic Prog

Review by TCat
Special Collaborator Eclectic / Prog Metal / Heavy Prog Team

3 stars In 1982, Kansas released 'Vinyl Confessions' a rather lackluster record which would also be the last time a violin (which is probably one of the trademark things about the band's sound) would be used for quite some time. The band's line-up would go through so many changes over the next several years, that no one could keep up with who was in the band and who wasn't, but one thing for certain, that violin sound kept the band from effectively playing their best tracks in concert, and they basically just became another rock band trying to hang on and living off of their band name.

Then, one of the best moves the band would make in many years, would begin movement back in the right direction. In 1991, David Ragsdale was brought into the band, bringing back the violin as one of the main instruments again, and suddenly, things starting sounding great again. After some successful touring where the band was once again able to do justice to their best songs, the band finally released the first album to have new material since 1988 and would call it 'Freaks of Nature'. The question was, would it be able to live up to the quality of music the band had released in its heyday.

In order to do that, it would be thought that most of the original band would have to be along for the ride. Steve Walsh still remained mostly loyal to the band, so is there, of course. However, Kenny Livgren is absent, and that is noticeable to some extent. Steve Morse no longer threatened the band (thank goodness), so that was a big plus. Rich Williams (guitar) was also loyal to the band and also participates in the album along with the other loyalist Phil Ehart (on drums). At the time, Greg Robert was the main keyboardist and had been since 1986, and Billy Greer was also along for the album and still continues to be with the band to this day. So, for this album, the line-up was pretty solid and Ragsdale, being the newcomer and the one bringing back the central instrument of the band, was going to have to live up to a high bar. Fortunately, he had sent the band a demo tape several years previously, and this is what got him hired on as a regular band member.

One other attempt to return to their most popular sound was bringing back Jeff Glixman as a producer, who also produced the band's best albums, namely 'Song for America', 'Masque', 'Leftoverture', and 'Point of No Return'. With these things coming together, the outlook for 'Freaks of Nature' is a good one, but did it come along too late? Many people had given up on the band being able to release a good record as many loyal fans had been disappointed too many times in the past. This would show in this album's sales as the public was hesitant to buy an album with all new material on it. It would be the only official Kansas album to not appear on the Billboard charts. Also, critics were quite harsh with it.

However, the album isn't as bad as some would make it out to be. There are some bumpy sections throughout the album that keeps it from reaching the pinnacle of their best work. But, it definitely isn't one that should be ignored either. 'I Can Fly' starts off with some extremely bad vocals right away which are very grating and not a good way to introduce the album. But when Ragsdale's violin comes in, there is a feeling of hope. Not much can save this first track, unfortunately, after that embarrassing introduction, but at least the rest of the band tries to do so.

As the music continues though, things do improve, including Walsh's voice. This is a good thing because Walsh is the only lead singer on this album. My first impression of this album was filled with dread after that first track and I thought Walsh was washed up. But things do improve as 'Desperate Times', 'Hope Once Again' and the heavy 'Black Fathom 4' are much better, and it would have been a great album if the band continued in this mode. Things tend to level off on 'Under the Knife' and 'Need' as the band seems to fall back into its more lackadaisical style that plagued them during the 80's. Those songs aren't bad, but they are a far cry from anything pre-'Point of No Return'. It gets even worse with 'Freaks of Nature' and the sappy 'Peaceful and Warm'. However, Livgren's only contribution to the album, the song 'Cold Gray Morning' sits in between these tracks and it is one of the better tracks of the 2nd half of the album.

So, the album is a step better than the previous albums of the 80's, and Ragsdale's violin is a welcome addition to the band. Fortunately, he would continue on with the band with a break between 1997 and 2006. Even though it didn't show in the sales of the album, over time, this gradual return-to-form by the band would prove to be a good thing for them. It would take time for the band to match the output of their previous years, but at least now, they were working towards that end, not just resting on their laurels. Even though it was not perfect, it was, for me, an album that gave back hope that Kansas could return to the amazing band it had been before. This album gets 3.5 stars from me, but is rounded down to 3 because of the weaker 2nd half. But it is a good sign of better things to come.

Mandalaband IV - AD: Sangreal
Mandalaband Symphonic Prog

Review by Hogweed Returns

4 stars The fourth album of the Mandalaband is a step forward. Where the third album misses balance this one has far more better songs and is a nice album to listen to. The songs have heads and tales (in Dutch: kop en staart) and especially 3 songs of the album makes it coherent. I will mention the best song on the album (at least for me): England's Heart and Soul. This song brings me back to the Eye Of Wendor and give me goosebumps, it could also be a hitsingle. There is also a nice rehearsal clip on Youtube of this song with the full band in action. The contribution of Marc Atkinson on vocals and ofcourse Wooly Wolstenholme of BJH (RIP) with a new version of Galadriel sung by the master himself makes it special. The first song on the album A Bloodlineline Born is also a highlight. You can't find the third and fourth album on Spotify, i don't know the reason maybe music licensing. I hope there will be a fifth album, already 10 years have past now, i shall check the website for more details. I rate this album with 3 stars but the 3 special songs on the album makes it 4. Have a fine listening.

Nursery Cryme
Genesis Symphonic Prog

Review by Hector Enrique

5 stars In Nursery Crime, Genesis´third album, Steve Hackett and Phil Collins joined the group with the guitar and the percussion, respectively. With them, the arrangement of the group that made the most iconic disc of Genesis was complete. Hackett and Collins´ incorporation was vital to hone the band´s musical proposal. The lyrics, at once mythic and fantastical, worked out primarily by the prolific Peter Gabriel, took Genesis to the progressive rock Olympus.

The album initiates with the monumental Musical Box, a fiction of the Victorian England in which Henry´s spirit (an 8- year-old child murdered by 9-year-old Cynthia) returns to haunt his murderer. The song is undoubtedly among the greatest Genesis creations: a 10-minute symphony of diverging rhythms that concludes with an exuberant ending. The album continues with a respite: For Absent Friends, a slow ballad sung by Phil Collins. Nonetheless, Nursery Crime surprises us yet again with the amazing The Return Of The Giant Hogweed, a song about a carnivorous plant that breaks havoc in London.

The album continues with Seven Stone, a demonstration of the mastery of the mellotron by Tony Banks. Despite being a great song, it hasn´t transcended as much as other compositions. After that, both the suicidal Harold The Barrel and the ballad Harlequin are interesting pieces that don´t surpass the 3-minute mark. Further down the album, The Fountain of Salmacis is a fine portrayal of Hermaphrodite´s origin. It is an excellent closure for Nursery Crime, a must- have album in the musical library of all the Genesis admirers and all the progressive rock listeners.

Neal Morse Symphonic Prog

Review by AlanB

— First review of this album —
3 stars Despite being a huge Neal Morse fan, I'd never bought any of his albums of cover versions. When I saw that all three were available for only a few pounds more than the cost of the latest one, I decided to dive in. So glad I did.

Cover To Cover Anthology consists of the first two discs, remastered (understandable) and with a different track order (not sure why that was necessary, but hey), with the latest instalment, Cov3r to Cov3r, and liner notes for all 3 discs written by Mike Portnoy. Notwithstanding a couple of tracks each by King Crimson and Jethro Tull, and an early Yes song, the songs covered are not prog but 60s/70s pop songs. With a smattering from the 80s too. Neal Morse, Mike Portnoy and Randy George have chosen songs that they love, from bands that they admire and were influenced by. Some of these songs will be recognisable to everyone, Life On Mars, Baker Street, Crazy Horses and Rikki Don't Lose That Number, amongst others. Some of the other selections are more eclectic and will only be known by fans of those particular artists. Of the songs that I already knew, I would say that the covers are pretty faithful to the originals. However Mr Portnoy does put his own stamp on some of them with his inimitable drumming style. Also impressive is Neal's prowess on the lead guitar. Known more as a composer and keyboard player, he usually leaves such duties to specialists like his brother Alan, Roine Stolt, Steve Morse or Eric Gillette. But if you listen to the end of Baker Street you will realise how good Neal actually is himself.

I can heartily recommend this collection if you don't already have the first two Cover To/2 Cover albums. If you do have them, the third album is well worth adding.

I'd love to give this 4 stars but as it's not a prog album I ought to stick with 3.

Sounds Of Imagination
Cast Symphonic Prog

Review by b_olariu
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Cast from Mexico is without doubt one of the most prolific symphonic/neo prog band in last 30 years in this field. As I said before and said again Cast is an under rated band for sure, they participated and revive '90 prog scene by releasing some more then respected albums since then. With all that they have moderate succes to public and I wonder why, their music is passionate, intresting, complex, melodic all the ingredients are here.

Sounds of imagination is the second release issued in 1994 and from this one on they become a prolific band releasing 2 even 3 albums in a year. As previous output this is another fine little Marillion/Genesis inspired music with some mexican prog Nazca or Iconoclasta added in the mix, memorable moments from start to finish. Everything is around of truly top keyboard player Luis Alfonso " Poncho" Vidales, one of the most overlooked keyboard players ever.

The instrumental sections are great, symphonic prog very well melted with some neo prog momenets here and there. I like a lot the bands vintage sound, it was impossible to sound for 1994 year but after a small research everything was clear, the first 7 pieces were recorded in 1985.The keybords were constructed in combination with the rest of the instruments, creating a fine symphonic/neo prog sound. I'm not bothered by the voice like others said, ok the vocal passages are not the main attraction here, but are well sung and has it's moments of beauty. Now the instrumental pieces and instrumental sections are truly great, each musician offers his best moves nice and intresting little pieces with lots of keybords, inventive drums and brilliant guitars. The album goes in this direction from start to finish, plenty of memorable moments, musicianship is top notch so no complains from me. Pieces like Dragon's Attack or lets say A Run In The Rain are more then ok like the rest. The vocal passages are theaterical recalling the best of some french neo prog bands of the era, aswell dutch neo prog.

I was very pleasent surprised about Cast music for many years now, being one of my fav bands ever regardless of genre, 3.5 stars easy for Sounds of imagination. They need a far more more recognition, much better then many well know bands from this realm.
