IL CASTELLO DI ATLANTE (Italy)

Il Castello di Atlante is probably the most long-lived progressive rock band in Italy, born in 1974...
Their name is taken from a magician called Atlante in Ludovico Ariosto’s Romance epic ‘’L’ Orlando Furioso’’ and the- genre is of course a genuine Italian progressive rock - and it couldn’t be different even because of the place and period of its birth - with clear references to the best progressive bands such as Il Banco del Mutuo Soccorso, PFM, Genesis, Yes, Jethro Tull and others...
According to the majority of press and news agencies, Il Castello di Atlante’s music is highly emotional and beautiful, the Italian lyrics are full of allegories and metaphors, and originate from emotions and experiences of real life, while the music is built around keyboards and choral effects, with violin flourishes and soaring emotive guitar solos. Due to the presence of the violin, comparisons with Quella Vecchia Locanda are perhaps inevitable although Genesis would seem to be the band’s main influence.

.LIGHT DAMAGE (Luxembourg)

The foundation for Light Damage was laid in Luxembourg in 2005, after a yearly festival, Spirit of 66, where drummer Sébastien and guitarist Stephane Lecocq got to know each other. They joined up with singer/guitarist Nicholas-John and bass player Fréderik Hardy. After some changes in line up and 7 years of playing covers and new material at festivals and in rehearsal rooms, Thibaut Grappin became the bands drummer (replacing founder Sebastien) and Sébastien Perignon took care of the keyboards.
This line up established, the band finally set out to record their self title debut album, which was released in October 2014.
The band plays 21st century neo-progressive rock, with a heavy edge in places.

CIRRHA NIVA (Nederland)

Na het zeer goed besproken album ‘For Moments Never Done’ dat beloont is met o.a. de titels “Eremetaal” in tijdschrift Aardschok en “Vette Krent” in het progtijdschrift IO-Pages, is Cirrha Niva tussen diverse ritmesectie wisselingen door gestart met het schrijven van ‘Out Of The Freakshow,’. Oprichter/gitarist Rob Willemse en oudgedienden gitarist Carlo Heefer en zanger Legrand hebben in Michel Steenbekkers (ex-Fuelblooded) en Robert van Kooij (ex-Toyz) hun bassist en drummer gevonden.

Net als op ‘For Moments Never Done’ zijn producers Jochem Jacobs and Bouke Visser van Split Second Sound Studio (Textures ect.) ook nu weer verantwoordelijk voor de frisse en internationale sound. Op ‘Out Of The Freakshow,’ vinden technische gitaarriffs, shred solo’s, pompende basgrooves en beukende drums afwisseling met akoestische gitaar, melodieuze solo’s, sleepende bas en jazzy drumpatronen. Zanger Legrand weet echter met elke sfeer, elk tempo en elke toon moeiteloos om te gaan. Vanwege de emotie en intensiteit die hij in elk couplet en refrein weet te leggen geloof je automatisch ieder woord. Op dit nieuwe plaatwerk gaat Cirrha Niva harder, maar tegelijkertijd ook melodieuzer te werk. Als referenties zouden Nevermore, Psychotic Waltz en zelfs Thin Lizzy en Rush genoemt kunnen worden.
