I have been into Spock's Beard since day one but only just discovered Neal Morse and his solo stuff, been a bit put off with the christian side of it but it's brilliant. To Adolfo: Marillion, Dream Theater, some Arena, Pallas yes these are quintessential Neo Prog apart from Dream Theater they cover every genre. Arena has some brilliant stuff out. Will check out MOON SAFARI sounds interesting.

Just wondering why Neo-Prog is not covered more in depth here and why more melodic fans are not more into the genre. I have always like bands like Marillion but have recently discovered that there is or was a whole sub culture of Neo-Prog. Bands such as IQ, Pallas, Pendragon, Arena, Spock's Beard etc. Some of this stuff is extremely melodic. Pendragon's Nostradamus is one of the catchiest tune

I picked this when tour first announced, it's here somewhere but can't find my posts but yeah really sick and tired of these style of tours being cancelled at last minute. Makes me second guess about buying tickets for anyone. I reckon the YES tour will get canned as well.

I have been going thru and listening to my whole CD collection which is a huge task in itself but when I got to this CD Final Frontier - High Tension Wire I was shocked to see that it is recorded in MP3. Can anyone else confirm this, i would've purchased this from Amazon at the time.

You tube is just the same as it was back in he 80's when you went to the back of the record store to flick thru the bootleg VHS tapes. especially in Australia where no bands came down.

1000 thousand percent not new wave, The Flowers/Icehouse were part of the huge Aussie rock/pub scene in the 80's. Met the drummer overseas when I was serving in middle east as the Choirboys drummer, by the way the Choirboys blew the Americans away, they thought they were awesome.

I would say fair enough to the concert price if it was in an entertainment centre or a similiar purpose built complex but not in the Revesby Workers Club, a community style club in a suburb of sydney c'mon. I predict this tour will not go ahead due to lack of ticket sales.

No wonder rock is dying a slow death, trying to book Ring Springfield tickets in Australia and am finding it near impossible, been on google for an hour just to find a place that sells them and not some scam site that is charging over $200 and finally getting to the actual venue site where you go right thru the booking process only for it to decline due to the "booking department having diff

Good to see you are on it Andrew, I did get a phone call message yesterday from the venue that I will get a refund which is good. I had a feeling the show would not go ahead as the venue was a very small place in a built up suburban area, acts that perform are either stand up comedy or intimate acoustic shows. Why on earth would a prog/power metal band that are used to playing in concert halls fl

Absolutely filthy about this, the only band that I have been really looking forward to see down here since Queensryche and a dodgey promoter stuffed it up.DC Cooper saying that the promoter was very unprofessional and breached the contract so they couldn't risk getting stranded here which is fair enough. I respect Royal Hunt immensely for standing up to this clown but still would love to see the

Without any pushing (honestly) my 4 year old son has 4 favourite songs which are Queensryche – Walk in the Shadows, Triumph – Allied Forces, Hammerfall – Hearts on Fire and Accept – Guardians of the Night. I have put these songs on a USB stick and he demands them when we get in the car, I am only happy to oblige and he can sing along to all of them. Very satisfying especially when most of

It was the Over The Top song by Sammy Hager that made me go back and watch all his films again. I was only around 16 when I saw Over The Top the first time, I knew I liked the song but had no idea who it was until I recently watched again with my son. I also like the credit song “It’s a long Road “ from First Blood.

Pretty much all of Sylvester Stallone’s movies from the 80’s have a scattering of melodic rock song’s throughout his movies. He must have a love for melodic rock music. Does he read this site Andrew? Someone should interview him about this and maybe he should put on a massive melodic rock festival.

Looks good, wonder if it discusses Motley Crue’s backup singers, definitely not selected for their vocal chords.

Just thinking about my music collection and how diverse it is, I am sure that most people into melodic rock would be just as diverse. What would be your most 2 diverse albums? Off the top of my head I would say mine are Slayer – Reign in Blood and Cyndi Lauper – She’s so Unusual.

This site made me realise exactly what type of music I liked and in a nut shell anything with a catchy chorus or I suppose a “Hook”. After going thru the 80’s Hard Rock stage then the Heavy Metal, then the Thrash , then the Power Metal, then the Prog Rock/Metal stages I can look back and all the songs a I like has a memorable hook. Then I discovered this site and after listening to Pride o

Judging by live clips on youtube there must have been a heap of live shows taped for Japanese TV back in the late 80’s early 90’s (Glory Days) such as this Van Halen one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tf_xjLYT9so why haven’t these been officially released?

Seems like all the singers that had control over their voice and only showed of the high range on certain parts of a song ( just a guitarist playing a solo) have kept their range. Singers like Mark Slaughter for eg. that sang like a whaling banshee for the whole album are the ones that have lost it, not surprisingly. It’s a wonder he didn’t lose his voice all together after the Vinnie Vincent

This is a great thread, I was thinking the key for making or breaking a band is the 3rd album. It was very difficult for the hair bands especially the ones that released the 1st album around 86/87 usually pretty raw. 2nd album around 90/91 this one was with much better production and a lot slicker. (of course the boom time for this style with plenty of cash for production) Then the 3rd album w

Yes that is the Glenn Hughes from Deep Purple, Black Country Communion.I was never really sold on him either until I heard this. Brazon Abbott was like an Ayreon kind of thing but as progressive where the founder Nikolo Kotzev used various singers. One of those CD's I brought just for the Cover years ago.

I posted in another thread that I was going back thru all my CD's and listening to them and I came across Brazon Abbot with Glen Hughes on Miracle as I get to the end of the CD their was another awesome ballad called Shadow of The Moon. Both ballads are the stand outs of the album, what other albums does tis happen on.
