Dutch/British melodic and progressive rock act DILEMMA disappeared from the public eye for years, until they came back with a brand new album “Random Act Of Liberation”. Their debut album, “Imbroccata”, was released way back in 1995. The only new member since their debut is Dec Burke, who joined the band for their new album after their original singer decided to leave the band. The band secretly decided to reset and start over while keep working under the same moniker. Now with a completely rewritten and newly recorded album, and with Dec Burke as their new front man, there’s no question left: DILEMMA is here to stay for the long run and ‘Random Acts Of Liberation’ paves the way for a whole new journey . DILEMMA recently toured with Sons Of Apollo during their European Tour.

Please welcome on Sunday, 21st July – one of the “hottest” bands in Prog- and Artrock Music, from Norway: OAK. Their debut album “Lighthouse” was released in 2012. OAK is back with their second album “False Memory Archive”, which, with its nods in the direction of “Lighthouse”, make it a natural continuation of their debut.
RanestRane (that means “Strange Frogs”) is an Italian progressive rock band formed in Rome in 1998. RanestRane’s most distinctive feature is its live performance: the band composes and performs original lyrics and music, blending them with short excerpts from the movie, projected in the background. The original score is almost entirely replaced by the new soundtrack. The band re-elaborates the art film, thus producing a real Rock Opera.
We are proud to have RanestRane on board next year!
