Follow-up to the successful first D-Day album, released in September 2019, to mark the 75th Anniversary of Operation Market Garden. Where that album focussed on the hardship of D-Day and consecutive battles, D-Day II puts the emphasis on the psychological strain the war had on the soldiers upon returning home after the end of World War II. Musically the album continues in the somewhat heavier vein of the previous one featuring new singer Jan Willem Ketelaers (Ayreon). The song 'Peace of Mind' is the second track of the new Knight Area album 'D-Day II - The Final Chapter'. Our intention with D-DAY II - The Final Chapter is to highlight multiple sides of the war and liberation from then until now. We want to emphasize less the war itself with this album, but more the man behind the soldier.

With an exciting stage show and hard driving rock, the extensive use of funky organ, a strong guitar front line and powerhouse drumming, the Santana-influenced Titanic became one of the most popular touring bands of the early 70s with success in Germany, England and France. They also made a strong impression in America. The original lineup was formed by Kenny Aas playing the organ and bass, Janne Loseth in charge of the guitar and vocals, John Lorck as drummer and Kjell Asperud who added percussion and vocals. Their first real hit single, the Santana oriented "Sultana" almost peaked the UK charts reaching a surprising (for a foreign band not coming from USA) fifth position. But their recording career had started a year before with the self titled debut…

Cathedral is usually mentioned with other 70s American prog bands like Yezda Urfa and Mirthrandir. Those three bands played symphonic-prog influenced mostly by Yes and early Genesis (although Yezda Urfa showed a strong Gentle Giant influence). And it had a profound influence on Cathedral. The listener will instantly notice that Cathedral were quite aggressive for a mid-seventies prog band, and the band wastes little time exploring action-packed sections in each track. The bass/drum interplay was one of the first things to catch my attention. Not only does the bassist and drummer lock into complex and aggressive grooves, but the drummer was also allowed to fill most of the tracks with additional percussive instruments…

Originally released on Polydor in 1974, "Fragments of Light" does not bend to mid-'70s genre-classism. Fluid, meditative guitar leads and innovative use of synthesizers, combined with a noted lack of percussion (and vocals) on all but a few songs, have drawn comparisons to Kosmische legends Tangerine Dream and Popol Vuh. "Space Closure," the only track with live drums, resembles the kinetic progressive rock of fellow Italian Franco Battiato, while the shimmering bliss of "Do You Love Me?" rivals the American power pop that Falsini surely absorbed during his time in the States. A certain airy, homespun feel lends "Fragments of Light" its unique character.

German band The Real Ax Band was formed by Marlon Klein and Toffi Mache in 1976. Between then and early 1977 people came and went while the group played dozens of small concerts in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Early in 1977 the line-up that made their first and only album coalesced when Ghana-born Maria Archer, Heinz-Otto Gwiasda and Dieter Miekautsch entered the frame. Maria Archer and Dieter Miekautsch were newly returned from Africa and were looking for a new band with whom they could perform. Both had already worked with Embryo.
Band mixed and matched rock, jazz, soul and Latino elements. In Maria Archer the group had a vocalist who sounded real when singing English, not like KrautRock's standard painful Anglo-American imitation…

The classical conductor Ulrich SOMMERLATTE was more than sixty years old when he fell in love with Progressive rock. Not unlike a certain Eduard ARTEMIEV, who followed a similar path at the same time in the Soviet Union, our man decided to offer his great knowledge to the popular music of that era. Today reissued by the Musea label, "Sad Cypress" has been recorded in 1979 with the help of the Master's son on keyboards, a guitarist-singer, a drummer and a flautist-bassist. The result, as one could expect, is a superb symphonic rock, precious and refined, full of fineness and harmonic tricks. The influences range from GENESIS (above all) to YES, CAMEL and GENTLE GIANT. Add to this that the CD reissue includes four bonus tracks, recorded between 1983 and 1987.

Psychedelic Rock / Progressive Rock

Seattle-based art rock band Obscured by Clouds took their name from Pink Floyd's 1972 album of the same name, and their sound also reflects the spacy, electronic-induced psychedelia of that era – but with modern sound reinforcements and technological digital enhancements. William Weikart is the brain trust and founder of the ensemble, initially inspired when he saw Pink Floyd's Live at Pompeii, and took cues from the dreamy vocals of David Gilmour and sparse musings of guitarist Gilmour and bassist Roger Waters. He has also been influenced by progressive artists like the Doors, Tangerine Dream, King Crimson, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower, Morphine, and Soundgarden.

Osta Love unite Rock with Jazz, Pop with Baroque, catchy hooks with complex rhythms and add just the right dose of melancholic dreamscape to form a unique sound that touches hearts and heads. After the dark concept-album Good Morning Dystopia the new record goes in different directions. The accessible and song-oriented compositions merge a wide range of influences to form a musical journey on rivers and oceans, through green hills and dark nights to the fictitious Isle of Dogs. The album closes with a sixteen-minute piece about a writer with writer’s block.

Jethro Tull was very much a blues band on their debut album, vaguely reminiscent of the Graham Bond Organization only more cohesive, and with greater commercial sense. The revelations about the group's roots on This Was – which was recorded during the summer of 1968 – can be astonishing, even 30 years after the fact…
