Prog Issue 99

Since its arrival at the tail end of the 60s progressive rock has offered the world some of the most fascinating music ever heard, in varying guises over the years. Prog magazine brings you the stories behind the people who create these astounding sounds and amazing music, be they the classic originators such as Genesis, Pink Floyd and Yes, to the 80s revivalists such as Marillion and IQ, all the way through to those musicians today who have done so much to help rejuvenate the genre such as Muse, Radiohead, Steven Wilson, Opeth and Anathema. In depth and behind the scenes stories of classic albums and tours sit side by side with widespread coverage of what‘s happening at today’s cutting edge of progressive music.

Welcome to the latest issue of Prog Magazine. Always one of my favourite issues of the year because it’s the one where we announce this year’s Progressive Music Awards and unveil the nominations. As always, it’s been a right royal pain in the arse for the Editorial team, to whittle down what were epic lists of potential nominees to a final list of 10. Especially in the Album Of The Year category, which makes you realise just how many really good prog albums have been released in the past 12 months. Please do head over to www.loudersound.com/progawards and cast your vote! Talking of votes, this issue we asked you to tell us what your favourite Genesis songs were for our cover story. And boy did you – our biggest reader vote…

SOME YOU WIN… There are a lot of things I love about getting my Prog mag in the mail. First off, it’s just beautiful to look at. But the main thing for me is discovering new music. The writer that I’ve come to rely on most for this is Julian Marszalek. I knew there was something going on with him when I looked at his top 10 list a few months ago. His was the only list where I didn’t recognise most of the names on it. I started listening to his top few and couldn’t stop’til I heard every band in the list. Then, a couple of months later, I get completely blown away by his feature story on the Polish scene [Prog 96]. Wow, there were some real gems in…

voting opens for the 2019 progressive music awards

THE PROGRESSIVE MUSIC Awards are back at London’s Underglobe, beneath Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, on September 12. The event, now in its eighth year, acknowledges the very best progressive artists, releases, events and musicians from the last 12 months. Previous Award winners Dream Theater and Steve Hackett lead the nominations with three apiece, followed by a host of acts with two, including King Crimson, Devin Townsend, The Pineapple Thief, Marillion, Big Big Train, Gong, Mostly Autumn, Thumpermonkey and more. “As usual, it was a tough process to whittle down what starts as a long list for every category into a shortlist of 10 nominees,” says Prog Magazine Editor Jerry Ewing. “The Album Of The Year alone had us agonising over who made the final list, such is the quality of progressive albums released…
