|Progstravaganza: Beyond Frontiers|
The above link to the Progify store contains the full track list, along with more detailed info about the sampler. The full sampler is also available for streaming on Youtube. The bands that have been assembled for this album come from all across the world of progressive rock and play a wide variety of styles. For example, Fughu are a group of prog metal masters from Argentina, Cea Serin, from the United States, play a unique brand of progressive death metal, and Overhaul, from The Netherlands, play classic progressive rock. There’s also post-rock, psychedelic prog, and much more. Naturally, the mastering for this project was daunting, but Frank Gingeleit of Living Tunes Mastering was more than up to the task.
As mentioned before, Beyond Frontiers is Prog Sphere’s first physical release for Progstravaganza, and as such, it will be accompanied by high quality album art that fans have come to expect from this genre of music. Chris Van Der Linden of LidenArtwork has done the job quite well, and will continue to work with Prog Sphere into the future.
