Dries: I am sure that there are festivals with a more famous line-up, more stages and of course a larger audience. But what I am also sure of is: none come close to the relaxed atmosphere, the balanced mix of new and known bands but most of all the "we are one big family" feeling. Progpower is not just a music festival, it is a happening. People from all over the world meet each other one weekend a year to enjoy some really great progressive metal (and all genres close to it). And during the years a group of people is formed that you meet there every year and consider friends even though you have little to no contact in between ProgPowers with most of them. The music is great and that is of course why we are all there, but just sitting outside discussing music with people that have a similar taste is also a very big plus. I said not so famous line-up but this year Jon Oliva headlined the sunday, so a very big name at the end of the weekend. Expections were high!
Picture Of The Moon
Dries: As I have a soft spot for these guys from Enschede I was very happy to see they them added to the ProgPower list on short notice. Mechanical Poet's cancellation bumped DGM up to the next day and opened an opportunity for POTM. My first chance to see them live, but it did not bring me much joy.
The sound was terrible at the beginning, a large blur of noises. During the first 2 songs it took me a while to actually recognise the songs which is especially strange if you consider up till now Picture Of The Moon had only released 2 EPs, not much to choose from. I don't think the band was to blame and they were sure doing their best although their performance was a bit messy too. So I really felt a bit sorry for them.
At the end of the set around the last three songs the sound was much better and the band had their act together. People were finally starting to enjoy themselves. But unfortunately the damage had already been done at that time.
Picture Of The Moon did not really impress and that is a pity because knowing their studio work, they should have. If everything would have been up to the level of Black Roses and Depressive Garden (one of their best tracks anyway) this performance could have been a surprise to a lot of people. Now it all seems to be a missed opportunity.

Andy: With last year's debut album Fooled Eyes garnering good reviews, this
promising Brazilian sextet was undertaking its first European tour. Whilst
having many good moments, and making a solid opening statement of intent, Fooled Eyes has never totally won me over.
Playing classic ProgMetal with elements of fusion, blues, Brazilian rhythms
and classical music, the end result is very similar to fellow countrymen
Mindflow. Like Mindflow, they perhaps utilise too much technicality, and too
little melody for my tastes.
However on the compact stage in the corner of the bustling bar below the main
ProgPower hall, the passion and effort that the whole band put into this
90-minute set won my respect. They also provided damn good entertainment.
Encouraged by a receptive crowd, it quickly became clear that Thessera is a
band that just loves to play live. There was great interaction between singer
Marcelo Quina and guitarists Nando Costa and Raphael Lamim. Some of the
interplay between the guitarists and Rodolfo Amaro on keyboards was world class.
The set list too, was superbly paced. Top marks for realising that not
everyone would know their material and slipping in a couple of well-chosen
covers. It maintained everyone's interest. The TechMetal version of Genesis' Land Of Confusion was one of the best songs of the weekend. Using Dio's Don't Talk to Strangers and Dream Theater's Under A Glass Moon as
encores, ensured they closed to a very happy audience. A return for a slot on
the main bill next year, is the least they deserve.
Andy: After listening to their debut album, I must admit the choice of these Dutch
melodic metallers to open the show,
seemed a little strange. All dressed in
white hospital shirts and with a row of air-fans blowing their long locks behind
them, they looked cool onstage, and the first couple of songs combined good
melodies with solid riffing.
A few songs further in, they still looked very cool, and the songs still
combined solid riffs and melodies. It was just that visually and sonically the
routine had become very familiar. Most of the audience seemed similarly unmoved.
The applause being polite, rather than enthusiastic.
In the right setting, I'm sure Non-Divine have a place. But for this
festival, I felt they were too much like our politicians - a case of style over

Oceans Of Sadness
Dries: For almost every band playing at ProgPower there is kind of a buzz during the break. What will be up next, what kind of band is it? Like how they played live on this or that festival or their best album so far (one of the enjoyments of ProgPower by the way).
I had no prior knowledge of Oceans Of Sadness and as their was no buzz on there music or capabilities I entered the concert with blank expectations. That explains part of my surprise but not all.This was the biggest surprise of the weekend. Keyboards taking most of the melody lines, a musical flow that reminded me of a mix between Green Carnation and Pain Of Salvation. Sound that was good but a tad too loud. And a front man with an attitude and a performance that just gripped people by the throat and kept them transfixed to what was happening on the podium. One foot on the monitor leaning into the audience with an intense look. Also a true vocal wizard, screaming, hissing, singing, excellent grunting.
The music was air tight and impressive, impressive impressive. Especially if you consider that the style of the band is not really easy, it is an edgy kind of metal with a number of abrupt tempo changes and pauses, lyrics, sudden silence and lyrics again, at times a wall of sound that not once became messy or blurry. What a live band. What lucky people the visitors of ProgPower are to be able to meet a band like this. Still I don't understand why a band this good has gone by unnoticed like this. What a live act, what a surprise, what a brilliant band. Oceans Of Sadness remember that name! Buy one of their albums but moreover go to a concert when they are in your neighbourhood, you will be surprised.
Andy: Late changes to today's line-up had left me rather short-changed, as two of
the bands that I wanted to see (Aghora and Mechanical Poet) had failed to turn
up. On the plus side, the rearranged running order had moved Italian ProgPower
metallers DGM from the Pre-Party to the main stage.
At least, I thought it was going to be a plus point, until their set
unfolded. Sadly, DGM was the disappointment of the festival for me. Albums like Hidden Place and the newly-released Different Shapes, deliver the
sort of melodic, hard-edged power metal with clever progressive touches, that I
As a live act, when they hit the groove, the band can deliver some classic
sounds. Two or three of the earlier songs, sounded fabulous. However, singer
Titta Tani is the weak link on record, and as a live performer he really did
struggle. Far too often he was out of key and straining to hit the right notes.
The crucification of the title track from the band's Dreamland album was
The exchanges between the guitar and keyboards also lacked genuine passion or
excitement. I rather got the impression they were simply going through the
motions. The lack of charisma on stage, meant I never really connected with the
band or their music. They got a decent enough response, but there were a growing
number of gaps in the crowd by the end. I think I'll stick with DGM's records in

Dries:A month before ProgPower Nahemah was to be the band we were skipping to have diner. But it did not quite work out that way: in the weeks preparing for progpower I got absolutely hooked on this Spanish band. Nahemah creates a blend of progressive metal and alternative guitar based rock. But very much emphasising the metal influence especially by the grunting and screaming vocals.
On stage the singer did his best to entertain the audience but it was clear that he had to work hard for it, as it did not come naturally. Because the band put in a great performance and the singer just kept going through the motions, finally it did hit home with the audience. The setlist contained almost all tracks of the new album and the live feel of these tracks was great. Normally I don't particularly like a band that has too many tapes or sequencers running during their performance because it limits spontaneity. In this case because I was familiar with most of the tracks it was not a problem in fact I utterly enjoyed Nahemah's set. Never would have expected Nahemah being this great live. The sound was good, too loud and good again (after someone made the Sound man aware of the amount of decibels). A very memorable performance of a band that can now count me as a fan!
Clive: After playing at ProgPower Europe in 2005, Orphaned Land returned for
the second time to play their unique brand of middle eastern progressive
metal for the crowd in Baarlo. This is the fourth time I've seen the
band, and their last album "Mabool" stands as one of my favourites of
Having played just two years ago, and a new album not yet
finished, the band played more tracks from their 1996 album "El Norra
Alila" this time. While this is a very good album, it is a forerunner of
the style that would mature on "Mabool". The latter was still
represented with five tracks, including crowd favourites "Ocean Land"
and "Norra el Norra" which of course involved the bands customary
extortion for the crowd to do a lot of jumping. Whilst this performance
was better than ProgPower UK, it fell quite short of their performance
in 2005. The sound was quite unbalanced in places, sometimes during the
clean parts the vocalist was inaudible and the guitar in the left
channel was very dominant. This was not so much a problem when both
guitarists were playing the same dual parts, but sometimes the lead or
harmony guitar parts were buried below the rhythm guitars. There was
also a bit of a spark missing, perhaps the band have not performed live
together for a while, or are in need of a new album to promote to inject
more enthusiasm. Although they are capable of much better performances,
and surely a better sound mix would have helped, I still found them
reasonably enjoyable. On record, their songs are so much better than
anybody else playing on day one, and with material that strong, glimpses
of their quality is still evident. Overall impression, good but capable

Dries: Alchemist have been at progpower 3 years ago. From that concert I only remember that Alchemist is a good live band and that it was way too loud for my taste. So with that in mind I was wondering how long I could stand this year's saturday headliner. The music was of course loud but the sound wasn't: finally someone behind the PA who understood that a good and balanced sound is not obtained by making it all too loud but by making sure all the guitars can be heard as well as the grunting.
The second song made me realise that Alchemist is indeed a good live band. And around the time they started their third song, they had won me over. because of the brilliant sound the structures and melodies could be heard and distinguished. When the 4th song was played I just knew I had to go out someday and buy me an Alchemist album. Loud, tight and so much fun and energy. What else could a metal lover want?

Dries: Day six was a real surprise. These youngster from Asten (not too far from Baarlo) play a very melodical and open type of Prog Metal. Played with an ease that one would not expect from such a young and new band. The sound was really good too. It might have been more easy to get a good sound because this band was not afraid of having a pause in their music here and there. They showed that it is not necessary to fill all the silence to make good music.
The singer had some quirky looks, steps, dances and jumps while also playing his guitar that sure made it fun to watch day six. Their virtuoso way of playing, with excellent timing, bordering on prog metal but certainly not in the classical metal sense made someone next to me remark that Day Six had a certain resemblance with Riverside. (not music wise but situation wise) Day Six were about to release a CD but once outside admitted that it might again take much longer than they anticipated now. I am sure interested once it comes out.
Andy: A band I'd never heard of before their appearance was announced. But having
grown very fond of their debut album take on progressive thrash metal, and now
having witnessed the full-on intensity of a Meyvn live show, I am happy to
predict that this is a band with a bright future.
With two guitarists and a very busy bassist, the sound at the start was
abysmal. A big shame, as it rather spoilt their best song How Far We
Fall. However, as the mixing desk balanced things out, the sound more than
matched the intensity of the performance.
Having come all the way from the USA for this one gig, the band was
determined to leave an impression, and from beginning to end every member gave
110%. If you were unfamiliar with their songs, then I can see that it may have
been difficult to pick out the detail. But even then, the intensity and
commitment of Meyvn's live show would have been impressive. I really liked the
twin guitar work, and vocalist Rick Clark was spot-on throughout (a genuinely
likeable frontman as well). They closed with a fantastic, thrash-driven version
of Disturbed, which alone was one of my highlights of the weekend.
By the end Meyvn deservedly received one of the biggest responses I've ever
seen for a largely unknown band at this stage of the festival. Songs have
already been written for the next album. I hope this is a band that we'll be
hearing a lot more of.

Andy: The ‘new wave of Norwegian progressive metal’ arrived in Baarlo to an impressively warm welcome from an impressively full hall. The Circus Maximus set was a good mixture from their two albums, amply displaying their slick hybrid of melodic AOR melodies and progressive metal arrangements. After their 50-minute set however, I was left with a similar feeling as I do listening to their records. Parts were great, others left me feeling unmoved.
Vocalist Michael Eriksen provides a perfect summary of this. He started off well, the first few songs showing just why he is rated as one of the most exciting singers in the genre – boy, can he belt out a tune. However as the set progressed, the number of bum notes started to add up. His lumbering manner around the stage and the total lack of any real connection with the crowd, became frustrating. The rest of the band were pretty non-descript. Compared to the performance of Meyvn this was pretty pedestrian. Clearly many in the crowd loved this set, but an equal number seemed under-whelmed. A young band with huge potential, but still with much to learn.
Clive: This Norwegian quintet have two albums under their belts, 2005 debut
"The 1st Chapter" and the recently released "Isolate". For me
personally, I think the first one is more progressive, the latter is
more melodic metal, and in either case there are strong hints of AOR. To
be honest, I am not really that familiar with the second album, having
heard it only twice before ProgPower, but in the live environment the
songs seemed a bit heavier with more of a punch. However, tracks like
"Sin", with its slight eastern flavour, and "Why Am I Here" both from
their debut album proved to be the highlights for me. Circus Maximus
have what could be considered the definable melodic progressive metal
sound, and certainly their material does have its hooks which can draw
you in. Vocalist Mike Eriksen gave an admirable performance, hitting
most of the notes with the right amount of attack, and guitarist Mats
Haugen also sounded very good, with a performance highlighting a melodic
soloing style, never just shredding a billion notes in an attempt to
In some ways their performance reminded me of fellow Norwegians Pagan's
Mind in 2005. Technically proficient, very professional and quite
enjoyable, yet I still wouldn't consider playing any of their albums
with any regularity. Circus Maximus certainly benefited from the
slightly louder/heavier sound, not sounding quite as sugary as they do
on their second album. The pre-dinner crowd seemed a bit divided,
perhaps the more traditional prog metal enthusiasts hearing more to be
appreciative of, at least this seemed to be my perception. Others
considered them a bit light and too emo, but overall I think there were
more positives. I heard a few comments to their atypical appearance for
a metal band, but that doesn't concern me at all, only the performance
they gave - accomplished and fairly enjoyable.
Dries: Before their performance started someone called Dreamscape the cover band of the band that covers Dream Theater. Let me explain that: Dreamscape, often called the german Dream Theater, as they came to Baarlo were quite a different band from the one that recorded the last studio album. In fact only the guitar player and the drummer remained. I think a lot of people would not have believed that story afterwards. Because it was hardly noticeable that more than half of the band were new to the material of Dreamscape. I came with little to no expectations and got a big surprise.
Of course the guitars by Wolfgang Kerinnis are a centre point for Dreamscape but their new singer is a real entertainer, he knows how to work an audience: you put in a lot of enthusiasm, show that you are having fun and make sure you don't look arrogant while doing so. And that is exactly what Mischa Mang managed to do. Because the music is well played and sounded familiar it was very easy to go along with the fun that the people of Dreamscape were having. So I had fun all during their set. A good band that made a good and firm impression. It made me curious to their albums because the music was different from what had been described up front.
Andy: I enjoyed every single second that Sieges Even was on the ProgPower stage.
After their stunning return to the scene with last year's The Art of
Navigating.. album, the newly-released Paramount opus, has cemented
their reputation as one of the best progressive rock/metal bands around.
This German/Dutch quintet was the main attraction of the weekend for me, so
there was always a danger that my expectations would be set too high.
Thankfully, Sieges Even not only met my expectations, but exceeded them.
Speaking to singer Arno Menses beforehand, he revealed the set list would
borrow heavily from their two most recent albums. As it is in many ways a new
band, with the majority of fans unfamiliar with their old material, that was a
I could mention all the little details that made this a show to remember, but
let's just say that it was a pure joy to see four superb musicians playing their
hearts out and enjoying every minute of it. I will say that Unbreakable was sublime; the passion behind the song bringing tears to my eyes. The bass
playing of Oliver Holzwarth was jaw-droppingly good and the two heavier numbers
they played from the underrated Sense of Change album were superb - Arno
Menses' vocals taking them to another level. I must also say, that as a live
act, Sieges Even was far heavier than I'd expected - and all the better for it.
(Maybe a hint at the direction of the next album?)
Judging from the roars of approval at the end of every song, me and everyone
else in the packed hall, thought they played a blinder. The only disappointment
was that the scheduled encore of Lifecycles had to be dropped, as they'd
run out of time. An absolutely world class performance from an absolutely world
Dries: To those who have read our review it should not come as a surprise that Andy and I totally agree on the qualities of Sieges Even. And as I don't mind my music being a little on the heavier side of the spectrum the heavier style that Sieges Even plays live is a treat to my ears. I have little to add to Andy's review. When we regained our speech, we agreed that this was a memorable performance that we will think back of in years to come. One to remember...

Dries: And then Jon Oliva walked up to the stage. 10 seconds into his set and Sieges Even was completely forgotten! Boy, does this guy know how to throw a party. And of course it helped that the audience was really eager to see Jon Oliva but I had no prior knowledge to anything in Jon Oliva's catalogue (neither solo nor Savatage work) and still I had an utter utter utter good time. 5 minutes into the set and all I could think of was: "so this is how it is supposed to be done". The atmosphere was intimate, energetic but relaxed too, intense and musically superb. Jon Oliva is of course a big name but shows a total lack of arrogance on stage. At the beginning something went wrong with his microphone and I know a number of artists that would have made angry gestures, acting annoyed. Not Jon Oliva, of course he looked if any of the people of ProgPower could help him out. But when someone came he had some fun with him on stage. It showed that mr Oliva did not mind to have some fun on the podium and that was noticeable throughout the complete set. That did in no way mean the people on stage were not taking their music serious. Because the music was brilliant too, technically sublime and breathtaking. What a night, what a perfect ending to a perfect progpower!
Andy: Probably the biggest 'name' that has ever graced this festival, Jon Oliva and
his band provided a master-class in how to put on a rock'n'roll show. To be able
to stand literally a handshake away, as one of the greatest voices in metal
poured out classic after classic, was a truly memorable experience. The set wasn't wildly different from the one he played at the British
ProgPower in March. The Streets selection was a little shorter, and the
playing of Savatage cuts a little longer, but it was the intimacy of the show
that took this to another level.
'Slim-line' isn't a word that you'd use to describe Mr Oliva nowadays, and
helped by half a dozen generous shots of Jagermeister during the show, he spent
most of it sat behind his keyboard. Yet his voice still has that unique rasp and
raw power that it had 20-odd years ago. An insane version of 24 hours and
the rousing Edge of Thorns were personal favourites.
As one of the surprises, the band pulled Chance out of the back
catalogue, Oliva admitting he'd never sung it before and they'd only practiced
it once earlier that day!
The in-between song banter provided a good flow to the set. The idea of
opening a coffee shop in The Netherlands one day, and calling it Hash of the Mountain
King was one of his best lines.
Despite the late hour, as the timeless Hall of the Mountain King brought the set to a climax, the hall was as full as at the beginning, yet twice
as loud! Two world class performances by two world class artists, meant this was
easily the best ending to any of the 10 ProgPower Europe days I have been to.
Clive: Possibly the most prestigious name to appear at the european edition of
ProgPower so far, the ex-Savatage frontman came with his band to Baarlo
to deliver a master class in heavy metal entertainment. Whilst he has put
out two solo albums, you could be forgiven for thinking this is an
excuse to indulge in some serious Savatage nostalgia. Not that the
Baarlo crowd seemed to mind one iota, as Oliva roared his way through
one Savatage classic after another. The set-list didn't vary too
differently from the ProgPower UK performance, with the old school
sounds of "Warriors" and "Sirens" kicking things off, which were
followed by a couple of tracks from the latest JOP disc "Maniacal
Renderings", namely "Through The Eyes of The King" (a sort of
sequel to the Savatage classic "Hall of The Mountain King") and the
title track which displayed some of the more progressive elements of the
Jon Oliva's voice is not one that could be considered 'classic', but he
has a distinctive voice all his own, a combination of rasp and power
that has lost little of its edge over the years. Although he spends most
of the time behind his keyboard, he still engages with the audience, and
he seems to have genuine affection for the Dutch/European crowd.
As "Streets: A Rock Opera" remains one of my favourite albums, I awaited
the medley from that album, and I wasn't disappointed, although it was
slightly shorter than the UK selection. The title-track started
proceedings, followed by a crowd-rousing "Jesus Saves" which saw a lot
of headbanging, fist-waving, and raucous singing from the attendees.
"Tonight He Grins Again", "Ghost In The Ruins" (always an emotional
performance because of his brother Criss who was tragically killed in a
car accident in 1994), "Agony And Extasy" (another crowd-pleaser) and
the crescendo of "Believe" completed the Streets section.
The nostalgia kept rolling as we were treated to "24 Hours Ago",
"Hounds", and a first-time performance of "Chance" from the "Handful of
Rain" album (on which Oliva himself did not sing) which sounded great,
complete with the four part vocal harmonisation, even if some of it did
seem to be on tape. There was another JOP track in the mix somewhere,
before crowd favourites "Edge of Thorns" and "Gutter Ballet" closed the
show. However the crowd were not content to let him leave on that note,
so he returned to the stage for a trademark performance of "Hall of The
Mountain King". I thought it was somewhat disappointing that there was
only one song for the encore. I would have gladly participated through
the complete repertoire. It would be churlish to pick just one or two
highlights, as the performance was pure rock entertainment from start to

Andy:Okay. So the line-up wasn't ideal for me, relying a little too
heavily on the extreme end of the progressive spectrum. But in terms of overall
entertainment, I would have to say that this was the most enjoyable PP Europe
I've ever been to.
It must rate as one of the friendliest festivals around. I counted people
from at least 16 different countries. The outside drinking area, the downstairs
bar with setees, the surrounding village bars and restaurants, and the main hall
itself, provide plenty of settings to chat and mingle. The pre and post-parties
were fabulous fun too.
The fact that so many people return year after year, should be testament
enough to what a great weekend it provides. And with 14 bands for the price of a
third of a seat at a Led Zep concert, then it's fantastic value for money.
Thanks to a strict limit on those devilish little decibels, the sound quality
was much improved, and everything seemed to run to schedule (another rare
achievement). Favourite acts would have to be Sieges Even and Jon Oliva by quite
a margin, although Meyvn and Thessera were impressive and Oceans of Sadness were
probably the surprise of the festival.
Next year sees the event celebrate its 10th birthday. For a festival that has
never compromised its musical principals for a quick buck, then that alone is
some achievement. I know there are some exciting plans being drawn up to mark
the event and I'd heartily urge anyone into progressive metal to put the date in
your diary now. You'd be a fool to miss it.
Clive:This was my sixth time (in the last seven years) attending the festival,
and I think the first time I have attended the Pre-Party. I went mainly
for Thessera who were promoting their album "Fooled Eyes" around Europe.
They gave a good performance of the highlights from their debut album,
and also entertained with a few well chosen cover versions, they even
managed to make Genesis' "Land of Confusion" sound good, and an
impressive version of Dream Theater's "Under A Glass Moon".
The atmosphere at the event is what the dutch might call 'gezellig', and
in general it's very welcoming. For 50 euros for two days (and a free
pre-party), it is good value, and although choices of bands have to be
modest based on costs, often there is something to be discovered. This
year, for me, it was Day Six, who I'd never heard before. Although some
of the bands were not really my cup of tea, this year I did not sit
outside for any of the sets, or skip them to go to the Chinese restaurant.
This event has almost always been a financial struggle, yet next year
sees its 10th anniversary. It deserves to be a success, and I hope Rene
can put in place some exciting plans for the event in 2008.
I would like to see some improvements made. Although the sound improved
slightly again this year after a strict sound limit was imposed, there
still seems to be an imbalance for bands with two guitarists. Without
exception, bands with one guitarist have better sound, and I think a bit
more work needs to be done to improve still the sound when there are two
guitars. The merchandise area in the basement has enough space for at
least another vendor to give a wider variety of choice. Availability of
food at the venue was not so good this year, only a choice of burgers or
goulash soup, although that is not such a major problem as Baarlo has a
few eateries and good restaurants within walking distance. Whilst in
general I like the liberal dutch attitude to most things, I wish they
would take a leaf out of the book from here in Ireland and the UK and
not permit smoking indoors at venues. At one point I thought I was going
to cough up an ashtray, and would really prefer that my lungs do not
suffer that abuse.
Dries:Progpower is my "weekend of the year" something I look forward to all year. I have some friends over, get to meet friends at the venue, have a couple of beers and listen to kick-ass music. All in a relaxed atmosphere and at very affordable prices. All-in weekend tickets are available for 2008 already. If you like (progressive) metal don't hesitate a single second, don't think, act! Get yourself one of these tickets and mark 3,4 and 5 Octobre on your calendar. I am sure you will thank me for it in all the consequtive years that you are visiting ProgPower because you will keep coming back.
