The new listener will discover that this particular branch of RPI feels more like classical music in a rock setting as opposed to occasional classical influences on top of the rock format.

Furthermore, the rich, diverse musical traditions of Italy permeate the albums, creating a strong national and even regional character.

The "textbook" RPI groups can usually be identified by a pervasive sense of romantic melancholy and earthy flair, sometimes enhanced by baroque elements, sometimes by more ethnic ones. Other distinctive features include overt opera and operetta influences, wild and uncontrolled storytelling, and as a general rule, bold and highly emotional vocals.

There is extroverted, operatic gallantry and panache or mellow balladry; exciting use of all sorts of keyboards, with sounds heard nowhere else but in this particular scene; exotic instruments such as aggeggi, ottavino, mandoloncello, clavicembalo - names that tickle the imagination and leave their distinct mark on the music. There is a uniquely magical marriage of the traditional to the modern, of the warm to the wild. The combination of flute, piano and violin is often encountered, and the interplay between the first two instruments in particular supplies the subgenre with a fair share of its identity and flavour.

Though the symphonic element is indeed the most common in RPI, the genre would be better characterized as eclectic. Even more amazing, these differences in style can often be found to varying degrees on one album, and still feel natural in the distinct stylistic framework mentioned above. No overview of RPI would be complete without mentioning the use of the Italian language, by many considered one of the most musical languages in the world. It could be safely stated that the use of Italian is inherent to the soul of RPI, a critical component to the full appreciation of the subgenre.

In fact, even if some key RPI albums were translated into English in an attempt to gain international recognition, most of them fail to impress. They feel as if one of the basic ingredients of what makes RPI such a successful concoction is missing. While most serious RPI fans consider Italian vocals essential to their listening experience, it is fair to say that some believe English lyrics are not so detrimental-even if in most cases the odd phrasing, incorrect emphasis, and heavy Italian accent of the singers detract significantly from an authentic overall effect.

While some prog fans can find the gregarious Italian vocal style challenging at first, newbies are encouraged to simply stick with it for a while. With only a modest effort any RPI newbie will soon find they cannot imagine this music without traditional Italian vocals-they truly are the icing on the cake. One common misconception that must be addressed is the belief that any prog band from Italy is an RPI band.

There are bands from Italy more appropriate for other genres. As an example, a pure and obvious post-rock band who just happen to be from Rome are going to be in the post-rock sub, not RPI. The RPI team will work hard to evaluate bands that fit the characteristics and the feel of the subgenre, and those whose primary sound is more suited for another sub are recommended to them. This cocktail is interpreted in different ways in every country: in England, for instance, Celtic, rock and blues influences prevail.

In Italy we have to cope with our classical tradition: the melodramma, Respighi, Puccini, Mascagni but also all the contemporary classical composers. It's in this legacy, in my opinion, that the specificity of the Italian Progressive Rock is concealed. Scores of the classic albums were re-pressed in Japan, then specialized independent labels such as BTF, Mellow and Black Widow the latter responsible for rescuing the likes of Jacula and Antonius Rex from oblivion started to re-issue many of the classic albums.

As a consequence RPI has not only reached a new generation of fans, but the increased interest and appreciation have led to new material being released. Artists whose recordings have never been in circulation, bands that are as new to our ears as they are to many of those who were there when it happened, now have a new-found audience creating an ironic worm-hole effect: brand new music straight from prog's golden years.

With the revival clearly under way the 90s produced some stellar Italian albums and the beginning of CD reissue fever. In the s the trend has continued to a much more successful degree. Italian progressive rock today covers a wide range of styles and influences, but many of the bands ground a portion of their sound in the RPI tradition. Moreover, this first decade of the 21st century has seen a new round of publications both in print and in electronic format covering various aspects of Italian prog, as well as the creation of a number of excellent websites dedicated to the subgenre, which are extremely influential as regards the promotion of new bands and artists.

The commercial success of RPI has always been modest compared to the big bands from other countries. However, the quality of the music past and present, from its unique compositions to fiercely independent spirit, has earned the RPI subgenre some of prog's most loyal followers. Complex time signatures. Lush keyboards. Explorative and intelligent lyrics, in some cases close to fantasy literature, Sci Fi and even political issues.

Non commercial approach Longer format of songs In this specific case the main characteristic is the influence of Classical music understood as Orchestral works created from the late Gothic to Modern Classical using normally more complex structure than other related sub-genres like Neo Progressive That's why sometimes the borderline that divides Symphonic from Neo is so unclear being that is based mostly in a degree of complexity rather than in an evident structural difference.

This category lists technical Progressive Metal bands that have roots in Extreme Metal or that are strongly influenced by it. The style developed by the end of the 80s in the Thrash Metal scene when a number of bands stretched the boundaries of their sound by including elements from Progressive Rock.

Death Metal followed a similar path in the 90s and by the s, also Black Metal and Metalcore saw an increasing amount of bands taking in Prog influences. These bands are listed under Experimental Metal. Progressive Thrash Metal By the end of the 80s Thrash Metal had diversified its sound significantly to an extent where the originally very direct and uncompromisingly aggressive style had become more sophisticated, boasting challenging technical skills and ambitious song structures frequently surpassing the 6 minute mark.

Next to the brutal sound, blast beat drumming, complex song structures and multiple tempo changes, the most notorious feature of the style is probably the growled vocals. Death Metal is generally highly technical, making the dividing line between Technical Death Metal and Progressive Death Metal sometimes rather faint.

A different flavour of Progressive Death Metal came from the European continent, when half-way into the 90s leading death and doom-death bands started expanding their basic metal sound. In typical Scandinavian fashion, their epic approach wasn't fusion oriented but less technical and more melodic, introducing the now typical alteration between brutal Death sections and more melodic breaks with clean vocals; an approach perfected in the next decade by OPETH.

Originally it was even purposely non-technical and low-fi. By the end of the 90s the genre had developed into various sub-styles, of which some incorporated elements from progressive music. The bands listed in this section are Black Metal bands that traded the minimalism of Black Metal for a more progressive, technical or experimental approach. Most artists in this section are Symphonic Black Metal-oriented bands with progressive and experimental influences, but without fully crossing over to either Prog or Avant Metal as they remain oppressively dark, harsh, often dissonant and inaccessible.

Modern Phase In the s trends became more diffuse, introducing bands that had some of their stylistic features in common with the extreme metal genres without fully belonging in any of them. At the end of the 90s their eclectic mix of Death, Thrash, Avant, Fusion and Prog laid down the groundrules of Extreme Metal for the next decade. Their music is inherently technical and complex and has quite a number of formal features in common with Progressive Metal such as odd time signatures and non-standard song formats.

Prog Archives only lists these bands that go beyond the default expectations of the genre and bring in distinct non-extreme Prog influences. Pronunciation: zEU h l, while the EU are like a French E with a slight U, and the h is a semi-silent letter which is an integrated part of the EU, totaling in a "syllable and a half".

The word means celestial, although many times it is misunderstood as meaning "celestial music", since the members of Magma describe the genre of their music as Zeuhl. Zeuhl Wortz, though, means Music of the universal might. The genre is a mixture of musical genres like Neoclassicism, Romanticism, Modernism and Fusion.

From Progarchives. Far out, man! Is it all about the music - really? What makes Progressive Metal progressive? One of my introverted essays The Progress Report: Give us your ideas! Dream Theater and T. The trials and tribulations of selling prog rock. Musical characteristics Form: Progressive rock songs either avoid common popular music song structures of verse-chorus-bridge, or blur the formal distinctions by extending sections or inserting musical interludes, often with exaggerated dynamics to heighten contrast between sections.

Other characteristics Technology: To aid timbral exploration, progressive rock bands were often early adopters of new electronic musical instruments and technologies. It uses material from the Wikipedia article "Progressive rock". YES were playing symphonic rock, so called because of the use of a symphonic orchestra. GENESIS were already recording at the end of the sixties but their links to the progressive rock were not yet defined. These two countries were the most prolific as far as progressive rock is concerned.

Let's go back to England to focus on another sub-genre that comes from the Canterbury country. These groups were playing a simpler music than in the other prog sub-genre. A minimalistic form of the "electronic" music appeared also in the seventies : ambient. They were called pomp prog as the intros and outros of some of their songs are "pompous".

So, at the end of the seventies you have 10 new sub-genres in the progressive rock : art rock, folk prog, classical prog, RIO, jazz-fusion, Zeuhl, ambient, electronic, krautrock, pomp prog The 80s The progressive rock was supplanted by the "punk movement" at the end of the seventies, a "music" which aim was to prove that everyone could play music.

Apart from metal prog. Thus, in the nineties you have a revival of the prog scene not only with the appearance of a new sub-genre : metal prog but also with bands playing the styles developed in the seventies. I hope these informations will help you in your investigation. This genre music is a catalyst to raise considerably the level of musicanship among rock bands and bring a new level of depth and sophistication to rock.

If you're not familiar with Prog Rock, it's a rather adventure some style of music. Nowadays its more underground but with a very loyal following. One of the most defining characteristics of prog is the classification of bands and artists. There are various sub-genres of progressive rock or "prog", as it is sometimes abbreviated. People can and will argue for hours about whether this or that band belongs in this or that sub-genre. This list below is just a simple outline of the characteristics of each sub-genre, and by NO means a strict guideline.

Remember, this is not a definitive list. Opening paragraphs written by Stonebeard, Cygnus X-2, Greenback Revised, edited and refined April by windhawk, The Doctor and E-Dub The neo-prog team has also decided on 5 representative albums of neo-prog that encapsulate the essence of the genre.

After these embarrassing episodes, King ended their US visit and immediately sent them home to London. In JanuaryBlackhill Enterprises announced Gilmour as the band's newest member, intending to continue with Barrett as a nonperforming songwriter. When this proved unworkable, it was decided that Barrett would just write material. Working with Barrett eventually proved too Album), and matters came to a conclusion in January while en route to a performance in Southampton when a band member asked if they should collect Barrett.

According to Gilmour, the answer was "Nah, let's not bother", signalling the end of Barrett's tenure with Pink Floyd. Jenner and King believed Barrett was the creative genius of the band, and decided to represent him and end their relationship with Pink Floyd. The album included Barrett's final contribution to their discography, " Jugband Blues ". Wright composed " See-Saw " and " Remember a Day ". Norman Smith encouraged them to self-produce their music, and they recorded demos of new material at their houses.

With Smith's instruction at Abbey Road, they learned how to use the recording studio to realise their artistic vision. However, Smith remained unconvinced by their music, and when Mason struggled to perform his drum part on "Remember a Day", Smith stepped in as his replacement. Gilmour later described their method as looking "like an architectural diagram".

Released in Junethe album featured a psychedelic cover designed by Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis. The first of several Pink Floyd album covers designed by Hipgnosis, it was the second time that EMI permitted one of their groups to contract designers for an album jacket.

Ummagumma represented a departure from their previous work. The second LP contained a single experimental contribution from each band member. Geesin worked to improve the score, but with little creative input from the band, production was troublesome.

Geesin eventually completed the project with the aid of John Alldiswho was the Album) of the choir hired to perform on the record. Smith earned an executive producer credit, and the album marked his final official contribution to the band's discography. Gilmour said it was "A neat way of saying that he didn't Pink Floyd toured extensively across America and Europe in Mason and Wright became fathers and bought homes in London while Gilmour, still single, moved to a 19th-century farm in Essex.

Waters installed a home recording studio at his house in Islington in a converted toolshed at the back of his garden. There was no record company contact whatsoever, except when their label manager would show up now and again with a couple of bottles of wine and a couple of joints".

They also spent several days at Air Studios, attempting to create music using a variety of household objects, a project which would be revisited between The Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here. Released in October" Meddle not only confirms lead guitarist David Gilmour's emergence as a real shaping force with the group, it states forcefully and accurately that the group is well into the growth track again", wrote Jean-Charles Costa of Rolling Stone.

The title is an allusion to lunacy rather than astronomy. The refracted beam of coloured light symbolises unity diffracted, leaving an absence of unity. Released in Marchthe LP became an instant chart success in the UK and throughout Western Europe, earning an enthusiastic response from critics. Waters and Wright bought large country houses while Mason became a collector of expensive cars. In Europe, Poor Old Man - The Albion Band - Songs From The Shows (CD continued to be represented by Harvest Records.

Wright later described these early sessions as "falling within a difficult period" and Waters found them "tortuous". Mason's failing marriage left him in a general malaise and with a sense of apathy, both of which interfered with his drumming.

Despite the lack of creative direction, Waters began to visualise a new concept after several weeks. While Pink Floyd were working on the album, Barrett made an impromptu visit to the studio. Thorgerson recalled that he "sat round and talked for a bit, but he wasn't really there". Waters was reportedly deeply upset by the experience.

InPink Floyd bought a three-storey group of church halls at 35 Britannia Row in Islington and began converting them into a recording studio and storage space. The lyrics describe different classes of society as dogs, pigs, and sheep. The division of royalties was a source of conflict between band members, who earned royalties on a per-song basis. Although Gilmour was largely responsible for " Dogs ", which took up almost the entire first side of the album, he received less than Waters, who contributed the much shorter two-part " Pigs on the Wing ".

Similarly, neither Mason nor Wright contributed much toward Animals ; Wright had marital problems, and his relationship with Waters was also suffering. Pink Floyd performed much of Animals during their " In the Flesh " tour. It was their first experience playing large stadiums, whose size caused unease in the band. On one occasion, Wright flew back to England, threatening to quit. In Julyamid a financial crisis caused by negligent investments, Waters presented two ideas for Pink Floyd's next album.

The first was a minute demo with the working title Bricks in the Wall; the other later became Waters's first solo album, The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking. Although both Mason and Gilmour were initially cautious, they chose the former. This first metaphorical brick led to more problems; Pink would become drug-addled and depressed by the music industry, eventually transforming into a megalomaniac, a development inspired partly by the decline of Syd Barrett.

At the end of the album, the increasingly fascist audience would watch as Pink tore down the wall, once again becoming a regular and caring person. During the recording of The Wallthe band became dissatisfied with Wright's lack of contribution and fired him. Gerald Scarfe produced a series of animations for the Wall tour.

He also commissioned the construction of large inflatable puppets representing characters from the storyline, including the "Mother", the "Ex-wife" and the "Schoolmaster". Pink Floyd used the puppets during their performances. Waters used his own vehicle to arrive at the venue and stayed in different hotels from the rest of the band. The film was conceived as a combination of live concert footage and animated scenes; however, the concert footage proved impractical to film.

Alan Parker agreed to direct and took a different approach. The animated sequences remained, but scenes were acted by actors with no dialogue. Waters was screentested, but quickly discarded and they asked Bob Geldof to accept the role of Pink.

Geldof was initially dismissive, condemning The Wall ' s storyline as "bollocks". InWaters suggested a project with the working title Spare Bricksoriginally conceived as the soundtrack album for Pink Floyd — The Wall. With the onset of the Falklands WarWaters changed direction and began writing new material. He saw Margaret Thatcher 's response to the invasion of the Falklands as jingoistic and unnecessary, and dedicated the album to his late father.

Immediately arguments arose between Waters and Gilmour, who felt that the album should include all new material, rather than recycle songs passed over for The Wall. Waters felt that Gilmour had contributed little to the band's lyrical repertoire. Waters and Gilmour worked independently; however, Gilmour began to feel the strain, sometimes barely maintaining his composure.

After a final confrontation, Gilmour's name disappeared from the credit list, reflecting what Waters felt was his lack of songwriting contributions. Though Mason's musical contributions were minimal, he stayed busy recording sound effects for an experimental Holophonic system to be used on the album.

With marital problems of his own, he remained a distant figure. Pink Floyd did not use Thorgerson for the cover design, Waters choosing to design the cover himself. Gilmour recorded his second solo album, About Faceinand used it to express his feelings about a variety of topics, from the murder of John Lennon to his relationship with Waters. He later stated that he used the album to distance himself from Pink Floyd.

Gilmour, Mason, Waters and O'Rourke met for dinner in to discuss their future. Mason and Gilmour left the restaurant thinking that Pink Floyd could continue after Waters had finished The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hikingnoting that they had had several hiatuses before; however, Waters left believing that Mason and Gilmour had accepted that Pink Floyd were finished. Mason said that Waters later saw the meeting as "duplicity rather than diplomacy", and wrote in his memoir: "Clearly, our communication skills were still troublingly nonexistent.

We left the restaurant with diametrically opposed views of what had been decided. He contacted O'Rourke to discuss settling future royalty payments. O'Rourke felt obliged to inform Mason and Gilmour, which angered Waters, who wanted to dismiss him as the band's manager. He terminated his management contract with O'Rourke and employed Peter Rudge to manage his affairs.

Gilmour believed that Waters left to hasten the demise of Pink Floyd. Waters later stated that, by not making new albums, Pink Floyd would be in breach of contract—which would suggest that royalty payments would be suspended—and that the other band members had forced him from the group by threatening to sue him.

He went to the High Court in an effort to dissolve the band and prevent the use of the Pink Floyd name, declaring Pink Floyd "a spent force creatively". When Waters's lawyers discovered that the partnership had never been formally confirmed, Waters returned to the High Court in an attempt to obtain a veto over further use of the band's name. Gilmour responded with a press release affirming that Pink Floyd would continue to exist. Recording sessions began on Gilmour's houseboat, the Astoriamoored along the River Thames.

A Momentary Lapse of Reason was released in September The songs are poor in general It's not a band album at all. Waters attempted to subvert the Momentary Lapse of Reason tour by contacting promoters in the US and threatening to sue them if they used the Pink Floyd name. Realising he had taken on too much work, Gilmour asked Ezrin to assist them. Waters issued a writ for copyright fees for the band's use of the flying pig.

Pink Floyd responded by attaching a large set of male genitalia to its underside to distinguish it from Waters's design. For several years Pink Floyd had busied themselves with personal pursuits, such as filming and competing in the La Carrera Panamericana and recording a soundtrack for a film based on the event.

After about two Album), the band had enough ideas to begin creating songs. Ezrin returned to co-produce the album and production moved to the Astoria, where from February to Maythey worked on about 25 ideas. Contractually, Wright was not a member of the band, and said, "It came close to a point where I wasn't going to do the album.

She helped him write several tracks, including " High Hopes ", a collaborative arrangement which, though initially tense, "pulled the whole album together," according to Ezrin. Pink Floyd spent more than two weeks rehearsing in a hangar at Norton Air Force Base in San Bernardino, Californiabefore opening on 29 Marchin Miami, with an almost identical road crew to that used for their Momentary Lapse of Reason tour.

About two weeks later, Waters called Gilmour, their first conversation in two years, and the next day Gilmour agreed. In a statement to the press, the band stressed the unimportance of their problems in the context of the Live 8 event. The chicks fledge in 11—12 days, but are fed by both adults for some time after.

About two weeks later, Waters called Gilmour, their first conversation in two years, and the next day Gilmour agreed. In a statement to the press, the band stressed the unimportance of their problems in the context of the Live 8 event. They planned their setlist at the Connaught Hotel in London, followed by three days of rehearsals at Black Island Studios. Waters called him back, and the band shared a group hug.

Images of the hug were a favourite among Sunday newspapers after Live 8. It was a bad, negative time, and I regret my part in that negativity. There have been all sorts of farewell moments in people's lives and careers which they have then rescinded, but I think I can fairly categorically say that there won't be a tour or an album again that I take part in.

It isn't to do with animosity or anything like that. It's just I've been there, I've done it. The news is official. Pink Floyd the brand is dissolved, finished, definitely deceased. I've had enough. I'm 60 years old Barrett died on 7 Julyat his home in Cambridge, aged Wright said: "The band are very naturally upset and sad to hear of Syd Barrett's death.

Syd was the guiding light of the early band line-up and leaves a legacy which continues to inspire. Wright died of an undisclosed form of cancer on 15 Septemberaged He was gentle, unassuming and private but his soulful voice and playing were vital, magical components of our most recognised Pink Floyd sound.

The event, which raised money for Palestinian children, took place at Kiddington Hall in Oxfordshire, England, with an audience of approximately Mason also joined, playing tambourine for " Outside the Wall " with Gilmour on mandolin. The albums were remastered by James Guthrieco-producer of The Wall. They recruited session musicians to help record new parts and "generally harness studio technology".

Listening back to the sessions, it really brought home to me what a special player he was. The Endless River was released on 7 Novemberthe second Pink Floyd album distributed by Parlophone following the release of the 20th anniversary editions of The Division Bell earlier in It's a shame, but this is the end.

In NovemberPink Floyd released a box set, The Early Years —comprising outtakes, live recordings, remixes, and films from their early career. The set includes a remixed version of A Momentary Lapse of Reason with more contributions by Wright and Mason, and an expanded reissue of the live album Delicate Sound of Thunder.

According to Rolling Stone : "Bythey had developed an unmistakably psychedelic sound, performing long, loud suitelike compositions that touched on hard rockblues, countryfolkand electronic music. Rarely will you find Floyd dishing up catchy hooks, tunes short enough for air-play, or predictable three-chord blues progressions; and never will you find them spending much time on the usual pop album of romance, partying, or self-hype.

Their sonic universe is expansive, intense, and challenging Where most other bands neatly fit the songs to the music, the two forming a sort of autonomous and seamless whole complete with memorable hooks, Pink Floyd tends to set lyrics within a broader soundscape that often seems to have a life of its own Pink Floyd employs extended, stand-alone instrumentals which are never mere vehicles for showing off virtuoso but are planned and integral parts of the performance.

During the late s, the press labelled Pink Floyd's music psychedelic pop, [] progressive pop [] and progressive rock ; [] they gained a following as a psychedelic pop group. We never saw ourselves that way We were laughable. We were useless. We couldn't play at all so we had to do something stupid and 'experimental' Syd was a genius, but I wouldn't want to go back to playing ' Interstellar Overdrive ' for hours and hours.

Rolling Stone critic Alan di Perna praised Gilmour's guitar work as integral to Pink Floyd's sound, [] and described him as the most important guitarist of the s, "the missing link between Hendrix and Van Halen ".

The way I play melodies is connected to things like Hank Marvin and the Shadows. InGuitar World writer Jimmy Brown described Gilmour's guitar style as "characterised by simple, huge-sounding riffs; gutsy, well-paced solos; and rich, ambient chordal textures. Gilmour paces himself throughout and builds upon his initial idea by leaping into the upper register with gut-wrenching one-and-one-half-step 'over bends', soulful triplet arpeggios and a typically impeccable bar vibrato.

Gilmour explained how he achieved his signature tone: "I usually use a fuzz box, a delay and a bright EQ setting It's just so much more fun to play Throughout their career, Pink Floyd experimented with their sound. During the performance, the group first used an early quadraphonic device called an Azimuth Co-ordinator.

Pink Floyd used innovative sound effects and state of the art audio recording technology during the recording of The Final Cut. Mason's contributions to the album were almost entirely limited to work with the experimental Holophonic system, an audio processing technique used to simulate a three-dimensional effect.

The system used a conventional stereo tape to produce an effect that seemed to move the sound around the listener's head when they were wearing headphones. The process enabled an engineer to simulate moving the sound to behind, above or beside the listener's ears. Pink Floyd also composed several film scores, starting inwith The Committee.

The soundtrack proved beneficial: not only did it pay well but, along with A Saucerful of Secretsthe material they created became part of their live shows for some time thereafter. Waters claimed that, without Antonioni's constant changes to the music, they would have completed the work in less than a week. Eventually he used only three of their recordings. Regarded as pioneers of live music performance and renowned for their lavish stage shows, Pink Floyd also set high standards in sound quality, making use of innovative sound effects and quadraphonic speaker systems.

To celebrate the launch of the London Free School 's magazine International Times inthey performed in front of 2, people at the opening of the Roundhouseattended by celebrities including Paul McCartney and Marianne Faithfull. Pink Floyd arrived at the festival at around three o'clock Album) the morning after a long journey by van and ferry from the Netherlands, taking the stage just as the sun was beginning to rise. In Novemberthey employed for the first time the large circular screen that would become a staple of their live shows.

Filled with helium and propane, Algie, while floating above the audience, would explode with a loud noise during the In the Flesh Tour. The subsequent The Wall Tour featured a 40 feet 12 m high wall, built from cardboard bricks, constructed between the band and the audience.
