    I have just discovered what may be a truly amazing band. I can't tell the name because I want it to be my own. :smug:

    They are an Italian Prog group, see if you can get it.

    Album art here:
    Premiata Forneria Marconi.

    Italian prog rock sounds interesting

    Very on topic I see. But yes Alcest is awesome, enjoy it.

    Premiata Forneria Marconi.

    It's mindblowing stuff.

    Also this album



    It has this quality about it that makes it seem culturally different to prog rock from bands like Yes.

    What do you mean it didn't work?
    Transparency? Transparency only works if the picture is 80x80 or smaller.

    On the subject of prog, I somehow managed to squeeze 16 time signature changes (I think) out of a one minute forty second song.

    I don't even know anymore.

    Just adding to the list of progressive music bands worth checking out:
    The Mars Volta
    I also saw TMV last year. It was too fucking cool. It's a shame they played so much of Octahedron. Though at one point they played a 40 minute jam around Cygnus... Vismund Cygnus which was fucking perfect in every way.

    Where did it come about?

    Britain, mostly. The Beatles are often regarded as the catalyst, mostly due to their efforts with avant garde and eastern music. But the first true progressive rock album was from King Crimson, who somehow managed to write a jazz-metal song in the 60s. It was also fucking amazing:
    nope

    Just in case you guys haven't heard them, allow me to recommend a very modern progressive band: Karnivool, a fantastic Australian band. Their album Sound Awake is my favourite album, out of any album, ever.
