Epilog is the second studio album from Swedish progressive rock group Änglagård. A darker and completely instrumental work, it was supposed to be the final chapter of Änglagård, hence the name. The compositions here are at turns anxious, mournful, tense, melancholic and spooky, delving into murky emotional realms which the band's major influences rarely if ever explored (with the exception of King Crimson). The performances are great, the compositions are breathtaking.

From the early nineties Sweden delivered a lot of fine mellotron-drenched progrock bands like Anekdoten, Landberk, Atlas, Catweazle and Par Lindh Project. But the the first known band in that period was Anglagard with their splendid debut-album Hybris. The music of 'Hybris" is complex, sharp, almost edgy and with dark overtones - it sometimes sounds downright strange. At other times, you'll come across poignant passages that will make you ache with longing. The overall effect is simply mesmerizing: like a musical Disneyworld, the soundscapes change at dizzying speed and take you where no music lover has ever gone before.

The legendary, cult favorite, Swedish prog band Änglagård had gone into hibernation after two incredible albums. Most of us thought never to return. Even the two albums, "Hybris" and "Epilog" were out of print. The rarity of the recordings only added to the band's mystique. In 2002 they decided to test the waters and try rehearsing together, only with Tord Lindman choosing to bow out. This resulted in some live performances and new hope from the fans. It was however short lived as Jonas, Anna, Thomas, Johan and Mattias retreated back to their separate lives. Then in 2009 "Hybris" was rereleased, followed by "Epilog" in 2010…

While the mainstream media was as far away from experimental space rock as it ever has been in 1991, Ozric Tentacles was making fascinating and very original music with few noticing outside of their homegrown "crusty movement." Mind-bogglingly talented and forward-thinking, Ozric Tentacles took this moment in their career to take their folk tendencies, add a heaping dose of weirdness, and connect it all with a dash of the emerging electronica scene to create a wildly experimental yet highly accessible sound that was all their own…

The seeds for Sylvan's formation were set in 1991 in Hamburg,when three friends decided to form their own rock band. In 1995 they were named Sylvan after the addition of vocalist Marco Glühmann. They released their junior album ''Deliverance'' in 1999, paying a tribute to all the bands, who have influenced them. ''Deliverance'' is an excellent 50/50 mix between neo progressive and symphonic rock, featuring dramatic, expressive vocal lines, superb keyboard work and somewhat heavy electric guitars. Most of the songs are clocking close to 10 min. or longer, so the band can fully develop their ideas…

Journey, the third and final album by Arthur Brown's Psych / Space Rock outfit Kingdom Come. Issued on Polydor in 1973, the album was coproduced by Dave Edmunds and is arguably their most well known work. Touching on the musical territory of fellow travellers Hawkwind, Journey was a masterwork and is now rightly regarded as a classic. This newly remastered edition includes a bonus CD featuring 8 bonus tracks of rare single material, alternate mixes and three recordings from a BBC Radio One John Peel session from 1972. Journey joins a new re-mastered edition of Kingdom Come in the continuation of Esoteric's Arthur Brown re-mastered series.

Arthur Brown was one of the prime movers behind the Progressive underground in late 1960s England, famous for his outlandish stage act which included psychedelic robes and a helmet of fire!
Digitally remastered two-fer containing a pair of albums from the British Rock icon. "Requiem" is an end-of-the-world concept album that comes on with a bang, not a whimper, and may well be the best thing that Arthur Brown has ever done! It's got all of the sonic excess you'd expect from the man who gave US 'Fire', but Brown's ornate Art-Rock tendencies are invariably backed up with enough visceral punch to make them marvelously affecting, not merely affected, while producer Earl Mankey handles the electronics well enough to maintain an unusually high level of interest and detail…

Genre: Progressive Rock/Canterbury Scene | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Musea (FGBG 4550)

Usually regarded as the Belgian Zao, Cos develops an European type of chamber-rock, built on onomatopeic vocals or sung in French or German. The band displays beautiful themes interwined with complex orchestrated rhythms. Its music evokes the Canterbury School (Caravan, Hatfield And The North), the anguished and dark music of King Crimson or Quiet Sun and Terje Rypdal's atmospheric jazz-rock. Pascale Son uses her high-pitched voice, able to perform the most incredible modulations, and this allows her to become one of the best singers in that style. The leader Daniel Schell is a guitarist extraordinaire, and proves to develop ideas as original as Robert Fripp's…

Robert Volkmann had a distinguished musical career, but even within his own lifetime his peers seem to have viewed him with respect as a worthy composer rather than one of any originality. That was probably a fair judgement and his work passed out of the concert halls and into the history books after his death. This double CD set from CPO therefore provides the modern day listener with a useful conspectus of his orchestral writing.
