Das Loreley Amphitheater ist UNESCO Weltkulturerbe, schon in den 70er und 80er Jahren fanden hier die legendären ROCKPALAST Shows statt. Im Rheintal zwischen Köln und Frankfurt geht das Night of the Prog Festival vom 19. bis 21. Juli 2019 auf dem legendären Felsen bereits in die 14. Runde.
Please welcome on Sunday, 21st July: ALL TRAPS ON EARTH
All Traps on Earth is a new Swedish prog band that will do the first ever live appearance at the Night or Prog Festival, 2019. Their first studio album, „A Drop of Light“, written by Johan Brand and Thomas Johnson (Änglagård), was released in late 2018 on AMS record. While the band was initially built for the studio, the overwhelming reception for „A Drop of Light“ inspired the creation of a live band, including old friends from the Änglagård days – Erik Hammarström, Jonas Endgegård, Linus Kåse, and Daniel Borgegård Älgå.
The music of All Traps on Earth is deeply rooted in the progressive movement of the late 60s early 70s. It is powerful, full of the chaotic, the symphonic, the enchanting and the fragile. The landscapes are varied through instrumentations that includes wind instruments like the flute, saxophones of all sizes, clarinets, and walls of Mellotrons, alongside fuzz-guitar, Rhodes, Hammond organs. But it is the duo on bass and drums that steals the show!
The band will perform tracks from their studio album A Drop Of Light – but maybe also something from Änglagård at the Loreley!
Please welcome on Friday 19th July: CHANDELIER! Chandelier is a German Neo-Prog band, which released three critically acclaimed albums on InsideOut Music in the 90ies, before calling it a day by the end of the last century. Fast forward 20 years: The albums are now being re-released, and were remastered by Grobschnitt legend Eroc.
Pure (1990) and Facing Gravity (1992) have already been reissued last year and Timecode (1997) will follow soon. These re-releases have already raised some awareness and the band decided to take things a bit further:
After 25 years, CHANDELIER will be back on stage for one night only, performing material from the three albums that placed them at the forefront of the German prog scene in the early 90ies. This exclusive reunion concert will feature four members of the original line-up – which Progressive Rock Files called «one of Europe’s most accomplished neo-progressive rock bands» and the show will center around their album Facing Gravity, featured in Eclipsed Magazine’s list of Top 40 German Prog albums.
We are thrilled that CHANDELIER will be part of the Night Of The Prog Experience 2019 and be prepared to hear and see a one-off show that you won’t see elsewhere! So please welcome: CHANDELIER
Wir arbeiten gerade an einem großartigen Lineup 2019, stay tuned!
