November 18th however there shall be no show, as I'll be on a boat.

Awesome!!!

Yeah, I'm super psyched, still can't believe that my buddy won the cabin deal within a few weeks of my deciding I couldn't go. You obviously know how amazing the last cruise was, and this is back on the same ship, so I am excited.

There was a contest we both entered, and they did drawings every week. Grand prize was a free cabin, runner up prizes were 70% off a cabin of your choice. He won the latter. With three people on an inside stateroom the result is $225 per person for the cruise, and you can't beat that.

Show tonight!

When Prog and Power Unite (www.wpapu.com) will be taking over the airwaves on progrock.com on Wednesday, October 28th, from 5-8pm CDT/6-9pm EDT/10pm-1am UTC.

We are going to try out a special feature tonight, and instead of featuring an album, we're going to feature an artist, namely Arjen Anthony Lucassen, and his assorted works including Ayreon, Star.One, Stream of Passion, Guilt Machine, his solo album, and The Gentle Storm. There will be more commentary from me than usual about Arjen and his effect on me and what I think he's meant to the prog community at large.

Australian act TERAMAZE will be making their debut on the program tonight, a likely preview of next week's featured album, and we also have some new live stuff from Pagan's Mind.

Damn, I'll miss the show about Arjen and next week when I attend there will be probably some mediocre band featured. :lol

Well, there always is the podcast. :D

Not that I wouldn't feature Teramaze next week anyway, but the reason I am pencilling them in for that week, as has just is confirmed, is that I'll be doing an interview with their guitarist and will have that up over the weekend.

Excited to finally be unveiling this, as Joe, Mason, and myself had a fun time with this and I like the results.

Hello everyone, a very special When Prog and Power Unite podcast went live this morning. It's called the November Music Mixer, and instead of being primarily music, it features all three contributors to the show talking about various musical topics.

On the docket for this debut mixer is the new album news and PR campaign from Dream Theater​, who appear to be going all out on the new album and tour. We talk about the expected return to heavier material from Swedish band Pain of Salvation​. We also discuss the recent appearance of Ghost B.C​ on The Late Show with Steven Colbert, as well as the latest album from Trivium​, Silence in the Snow. Finally we went back to talk about the huge new album from Iron Maiden​, and to discuss some bad concert experiences.

Okay folks, a few things before I pack up for Miami tomorrow. The latest show is of course online, and I'll have the text/setlist at the end of this post.

If you get a chance please check out the music mixer podcast: http://wpapu.com/ep-324-november-music-mixer/

It's a cool new thing and I'd love some feedback on it for future mixers.

No show next week, back on the 18th.

Cheers!

This week on the program we head over to Germany for our feature, and take a look at a very long-lasting prog-metal lineup in the band Vanden Plas. Their new album is Chronicles of the Immortals: Netherworld 2, and in my humble opinion is one of those rare sequels that goes above and beyond the hype created by the original. In the year and a half since the original Netherworld it makes sense that not much in the core sound has changed, but every single song on the new album delivers a very strong punch, which is not something I would have said about the original. You can buy the new album here.

We also started off the show tonight with a track from the soon to be released Flying Colors live album, Second Flight. You can order that here.

As I mentioned during the show, there will be no live show or podcast next week, as I will be taking to the high seas on Cruise to the Edge. If the time is available post-cruise you can expect a review similar to what I did for RoSfest earlier this year, which was a very popular download. See you all in two weeks!

Tonight we will be featuring the new album from Subsignal, The Beacons of Somewhere Sometime. We also have a brand new song from Jolly and lots of other material inspired by Cruise to the Edge, including debuits from Airbag, Lifesigns, Casey McPherson, Messenger - Band, and Bad Dreams. There will also be a full Cruise review coming (hopefully) this weekend.
We've also got a new song from Spock's Beard, and of course, some live material from the new RUSH R40 set!

So, a couple of updates and exciting things ahead. First off, the last podcast for everyone:

http://wpapu.com/ep-326-featuring-subsignal/

Quote
After a week off for vacation the show returns featuring a fantastic band from Germany, Subsignal. They’ve recently released The Beacons of Somewhere Sometime, their 4th studio effort. The band continues to distance themselves from their precursor of sorts, Sieges Even, and continues down a slightly more atmospheric sound as time moves along.

We also played the brand new Jolly song Ava, from their forthcoming album Family. The band is doing a newer form of crowdfunding called Patreon, and you can check out their campaign here. We will be discussing this new format on our forthcoming Music Mixer in December. Other definite topics will include the new Steven Wilson EP, 4 1/2, and the tough choice Transatlantic will face on future tours. Check out the video for Ava below.

Then there is the many bands that made their debut on the program tonight thanks to Cruise to the Edge. If you like what you heard tonight, please visit the online homes of Airbag, Bad Dreams, Messenger, Casey McPherson, and Lifesigns.

We also played the new track from Spock’s Beard, Falling For Forever. The song comes from the new compilation, The First Twenty Years. It’s not often I tell people not to buy something, but if you’re already a Spock’s Beard fan, go ahead and skip this one. Compilations mixed with original material are the devil, and buying them only assures that we’ll see more of it.

A small Canadian trio named Rush also had a recent live released, with R40 Live.  Still on the fence about this release, which can be found here? Well watch this video and then throw your money at the screen already.

To my American listeners, have a happy Thanksgiving, and to everyone else, a fantastic week, and thank you!

2015-11-25
Yes – Changes
Subsignal – Tempest
Nektar – Time Machine
Jolly – Ava
Rush – Hemispheres~
Rush – Cygnus X-1~
Spock’s Beard – Falling For Forever
Subsignal – Maelstrom
Subsignal – The Path
Sonus Umbra – Channel Zero
Bad Dreams – Apocolypse of the Mercy
Messenger – The Return
Casey McPherson – Lexington^
Flying Colors – Colder Months~^
Flying Colors – Peaceful Harbor
Airbag – Redemption
Subsignal – In This Blinding Light
Subsignal – A Canopy of Stars
Moon Safari – Lover’s End, Pt. 1
Lifesigns – Lighthouse
Blackfield – Thank You~^

And now onto what's upcoming. Next up is the regular show this Wednesday. Then, on Friday my review for Cruise to the Edge will finally be finished. Much like with RoSfest, this will be an audio only review. Then Sunday the December edition of the music mixer will go online. A lot of good topics again this month, and so I'm really looking forward to doing that.

In the more distant future, the year end lists from Mason, Joe, and myself will be posted sometime mid to late December. In addition I really like Mason's idea for doing the audio this year. We'll be doing the audio portion together as opposed to doing separate audio for each of our lists.

Finally, as always, there will be an extended year end show exclusive to 2015 material. This will either be Dec. 30 or Jan. 6. Before I set the date I was hoping for some input from regulars on if there was any preference.

Either date is probably fine by me.  Hard to tell this far in advance.

No, it isn't. January 7th is actually Christmas here.

We usually tend to get ~10 days long holidays starting with January 1st; for example, the first official working day in 2015 was January 12th, and for 2016 it'll be January 11th.

Jingle.CalendarFail

January 6th is a Wednesday. :p

And saying January 7th is Christmas there is partially accurate. The major Christian denomination in Russia is Orthodox, and that's when Orthodox Christmas is. In my area there are quite a few Orthodox churches and so you will see many families here celebrate around that time. In any case it's not really Russian Christmas, as much as it is Orthodox Christmas.

I'll wait a week or so before making a decision, so if anyone else has a preference just speak up.

Nick-gobaltimezones-fail.

Ruslan's insinuation that Dec 31st is a working day means (for him) a show on Dec 30th (for us) wouldn't work as he can't make through the night, or early in the morning on the 31st.  Ergo, January 7th (for him) is the important date in question.

But yeah, the show is at Wednesday night for my timezone so it's indeed Thursday that matters.

01/09 – Chicago, IL @ The Wire
01/16 – Baltimore, MD @ Orion Sound Studios
01/17 – Dunellen, NJ @ Roxy & Duke’s

To keep up with the band and get info on these and any few shows please visit them online here. And you can buy the new album directly from them here.

I mentioned early on in the episode that Gary Wehrkamp of Shadow Gallery, and his family, have been displaced by a fire that destroyed their home, and Gary’s music studio. This horrendous setback to his life and music will take a long time to recover from, and the community around him are organizing to help. I’m hoping that music fans everywhere might be able to chip in as well. There is a benefit event being held in Stroudsburg, PA, that you can find info for here. In addition, a charity for which the Wehrkamp family has supported for many years has set up a link for direct financial contributions, and that can be found here. Thank you in advance for any help you give these wonderful people!

Also on the show tonight we had some news on a new IQ live album, Live on the Road of Bones. You can buy that directly from the band here.

We also caught up on something that slipped through the cracks earlier in the year, Beyond the Red Mirror from Blind Guardian. You can pick up that disc here.

And I'm not going to post the text, as it's mainly links, but here is my review of Cruise to the Edge: http://wpapu.com/review-cruise-to-the-edge-2015/

We recorded the last music mixer last night, and I will edit tonight, so that's still on schedule for Sunday.

As well you should be! That said, there will be another, likely March 2017, and if you can swing it, I'm already recommending it. No idea if I'll even be able to go, but if you can, do it!
