Von Hertzen Brothers
Von Hertzen Brothers originates from Finland and is already extremely popular in their home country. Three of their albums reached top spot in the Finnish charts. The core of the group consists of three brothers Von Hertzen: Mikko, Kie and Jonne. The music is influenced by bands like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Pink Floyd. The band debuted in 2011 with the album “Experience”. Meanwhile, these men have seven studio albums to their name. Their latest album “War is Over” (2017) received rave reviews. “Without a doubt one of the best albums of 2017”, says Maarten Goossensen (Progwereld).
The Paradox Twin
Following in the footsteps of Voices Of The Fuselage and Kepler Ten, British band The Paradox Twin has chosen to release their debut album, “The Importance of Mr Bedlam” (2018), through the White Star Records label of John Mitchell (Arena, Frost *) and Chris Hillman. Singer Danny Sorrell is the musical brain behind the music of The Paradox Twin. Influences of The Pineapple Thief, Porcupine Tree and Marillion are clearly audible. An impressive debut and a band that is definitely worth keeping an eye on!https://www.theparadoxtwin.com/
Sky Architect has established itself in recent years as standard-bearer of the Dutch progressive rock scene. The band is inspired by science fiction classics. Their music is packed with surprising elements, polyrhythms and elaborate song structures. The band was founded in 2008 and now has four albums to its name. Their latest album “Nomad” (2016) marks a new era. Sky Architect previously shared the stage with bands like Dream Theater, Riverside and The Tangent. The band achieved fame at festivals like Night of the Prog and ProgPower.http://www.skyarchitect.com/
