RPWL was formed in 1997 as a Pink Floyd tribute band, but gradually started to write their own material, which led to their debut album in 2000. Since then the band have secured a prominent position in the international progressive rock scene. RPWL have collaborated with such iconic names as Ray Wilson (ex Genesis) and Tom Norris (London Symphony Orchestra). In 2012 they released their latest album to date: Beyond Man And Time, which got many favourable reviews. They are currently working on a worthy successor.http://www.rpwl.de/cm/
German neo-prog band Crystal Palace was formed in 1994, in Berlin. A year later they released their debut album On the Edge of the World. On their latest effort The System of Events (2013) the band collaborated with singer Yogi Lang and guitarist Kalle Wallner (RPWL), and Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree). Compared to their previous work, this has resulted in an album that has a slightly darker, more melodic sound that lies somewhere between neo-prog and prog metal.http://www.crystalpalacemusic.de/home.htm
X-PANDA is a progressive metal band founded in April of 2009 in Estonia. The band has built a reputation of great music and stellar live performances. The band, which is comprised of Kaarel TAMRA, Risto VIRKHAUSEN, Karl-Juhan LAANESAAR, and Tamar NUGIS, make music that is both highly progressive while simultaneously accessible and catchy. Their music has a powerful melodic edge as well as a great metallic basis as well as jazz fusion hooks and enhancements. The band’s debut studio album, Flight of Fancy, was released in 2011.http://x-panda.net/
