coming to a total of 12 bands announced. So with only 2 more bands to confirm, the line-up for ProgPower Europe 2015 is almost completed.
The five bands announced in the past weeks:
Armed Cloud (Netherlands)
Hailing from the south of the Netherlands, Armed Cloud played a steady stream of live performances, with an album on the
way later this year, a promising Saturday’s opener for this year’s ProgPower Europe.
Caligula’s Horse (Australia)
The Tide, the Thief & River’s End, the album Caligula’s Horse released on October 4th,2013 gained a lot of attention. In fact more
than a few webzines mentioned it as one of the albums of that year. Metal Observer: “Uniquely alive and consistently inviting,
CALIGULA’S HORSE are not unlike any great ruler: adherent to the people, brilliant in delivery, tender yet domineering, and then
entirely worthy of your devotion.”
Post-rock from Spain, that’s what EXXASENS is described as. Their last album promises a band that is capable of a dynamic, melodic
live set that can take it’s listeners on a journey into outer space.
Obsidian Kingdom (Spain)
This Spanish five some creates a hard to classify type of metal, Burning Fist wrote: “An expansive mix of complex progressive
post-metal interspersed occasionally with icily precise blasting black metal, they were a hypnotic experience that was all the more
impressive in capturing the attention in that environment.”
Schizoid Lloyd (Netherlands)
One of the surprises of ProgPower Europe 2011, Schizoid Lloyd returns to the festival in 2015. In 2014 the band released
their first full length album: The Last Note In God’s Magnum Opus. An album recorded by a uniquely-minded and talented band.
