Progressive (Prog) Rock has been enjoying a renaissance in the last few years. Led by new artists that have emerged from the 1990’s and early 2k’s. Steven Wilson’s bedroom project, Porcupine Tree, became an amazing full fledged band which eventually morphed into Mr Wilson’s stratospheric solo career (check everything out!) Plus label mates The Pineapple Thief and Polish Prog band, Riverside. Bands such as Anathema have also morphed from their early doom metal beginnings into a multi layered melodic outfit which absorbs all other genres to produce a unique musical journey!
The original giants of Prog are still with us, King Crimson and Yes are still touring and the early Genesis mantle is now being carried by Big Big Train.
Red House Records is the home of Prog....(in Swindon at least)
