My high school band, Avatar. We wrote this in 1979 when we were 17, recorded at a one-off reunion in 1986. [more inside]
At 0:32 I start ripping off a Goblin riff and I can't find the song that I am ripping off. It's not off of Roller or Profondo Rosso... Any insight would be appreciated.
Hard luck loser turns life around with the guidance of THE DARK LORD! Hard rock prog anthem thing, stick around for the big finish. It's sinfully long... [more inside]
A proof of concept. This was our first complete take at this at rehearsal a couple weeks ago. My prog tribute project, The Yes Men. All live, recorded in the garage by John. [more inside]
instrumental prog/hard rock tune recorded and mixed in my home studio, myself on guitar [more inside]
A morbid post-apocalyptic Western rock song. If you like symphonic rock this is for you! Features an extended interlude with some fun guitar/violin/cello/flute interplay. [more inside]
Originally by Yes, from the album Fragile. Recorded live in Brian's garage. [more inside]
A little progish - lots of analog synth, lots of interesting sounds, harmonies, counterpoint, a little odd meter, hopefully pretty catchy chorus, and one of the more obscure lyrics I've written (lyrics inside)... lots of stuff! [more inside]
A prog rock-esque wannbe torch song confessional thing with distorted electric guitar. And lots and lots and lots of digital delay. [more inside]
Spacey, instrumental, bongo-heavy breakbeat-driven jam with vintage analogue organ sounds sampled from a Baldwin Funmachine. Picks up where the first half stopped and has more of a prog-hip-hop vibe than the first section. [more inside]
Spacey, instrumental, bongo-heavy breakbeat-driven jam with vintage analogue organ sounds sampled from a Baldwin Funmachine. This part contains an ambient section. Long story detailing the composition of this song inside... [more inside]
Prog! Math! Horns! [more inside]
An instrumental composed in an electronic music suite. And I barely knew what the fuck I was doing. [more inside]
This is the fourth (and maybe final) People Will Blink song posted on this page. This one is definitely a prog-rock tune. It's about a day in the life of a superhero who doesn't really.... do anything. But there's an epic battle at the end. [more inside]
So this is a song that my band PROMIS recorded about two years ago. We're from New Orleans and finished tracking on August 27, two days before Hurricane Katrina hit town. The song isn't about New Orleans though--it's about Oakland, California, in particular the Rockridge neighborhod and riding "casual carpool" across the Bay Bridge. The instruments are a CP-30, a synth, drums, and some live violin.
Metal/rock with some little proggish ambitions. Features wheedly-wheedlies at the very end, and some truly incompetent drum programming.
