    Hailing from Connecticut, AFTER THE FALL have been around since the late 1980's and their line-up consists of Mark Benson (vocals, guitars), Ken Archer (keyboards), Jeff Brewer (bass, percussion, vocals) and Rich Kornacki (drums, percussion).

    AFTER THE FALL are one of the most original contemporary prog bands from the USA, blending influences from various subgenres to create their own highly individual sound., AFTER THE FALL plays in a modern progressive style that is predominantly art rock but combines elements of symphonic and neo with a tinge of prog metal, yet pays homage to the greats of the past. If you like long tracks with wonderful vocals and lyrics, tasty and muscular guitar work, lots of vintage keyboards, sinewy bass playing and complex, nimble drum work, AFTER THE FALL is definitely the

  • Iluvatar - Baltimore, MD
  • IZZ - New York City

    Style: SYMPHONIC
    Without question one of the brightest lights on the American symphonic prog scene, IZZ melds classic and modern prog influences, strong melodies, complex male-female multi-part vocal harmonies, and stirring guitar and synthesizer solos into a familiar yet refreshing musical stew.

    The new IZZ album "My River Flows" shows the band’s full musical palette: from accessible yet complex songs mixing their Yes, Beatles, and Gentle Giant affinities with a Radiohead spice to a dynamic, spiritually uplifting multi-part symphonic suite.

    The Watch is a 5-piece band from Milan, Italy. Born from the ashes of The Night Watch, they began to work in a more professional way with the release of Ghost in 2001, the album that introduced them to prog audiences. Today, The Watch are a well-known act in the prog community and are definitely appreciated.

    Their music is inspired by artists of the 70's, primarily early Genesis, owing to an incredible similarity between Simone Rossetti's vocals and those of a younger Peter Gabriel. Despite this similarity, however, the band has its own style, combining classical prog atmospheres with a sprinkling of modernity. During interviews, the guys are often asked how they manage to attain such a high production level both in-studio and on stage. They like to say that they simply try to compose nice songs and nothing more. The Watch's latest effort, Vacuum, instantly received excellent reviews. With its release in November 2004.

    A brand new album; both are scheduled for 2007.
