New partner hotel: Congress Hotel Mercure Nürnberg an der Messe

Logo_Congress_Hotel_MercureWe have a surprising change to announce: Our partner hotel, the Wöhrdersee Hotel Mercure, will be taken over by a new owner at the end of the year and then renovated. Thus, it will cease operation on November 16. This forces us to switch over to the “Congress Hotel Mercure Nürnberg an der Messe”. This one is also pretty close to the festival venue and a tad above our previous choice quality-wise (also a four-star hotel). There’s going to be a shuttle service from and to the hotel on both festival days. The prices stay the same, which means more savings for you compared to the regular offers. Those who aren’t happy with this change can of course cancel their booking through us.

We will adapt the rest of our website accordingly soon.

Coming soon: THEO – The Game of Ouroboros

THEO cover
New year, new release: We’re excited to be releasing the debut album from the progressive rock project THEO in collaboration with Big O Records. THEO was founded by Jim Alfredson, otherwise known as the keyboardist for the great modern organ jazz trio Organissimo. “I formed THEO because I wanted to hear the kind of music I grew up listening to as a kid. Remember putting on the headphones, putting the needle in the groove, opening the gatefold, and letting the music take you to another place? That’s what THEO is about,” says Alfredson. Inspired by classic bands like Yes, ELP, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, and Genesis, THEO brings epic songwriting and sweeping narratives back to the forefront with contemporary sensibilities and production.

Here’s an excerpt from the title track of the album:

THEO’s debut album is called The Game of Ouroboros and consists of 6 tracks with a total playing time of 58 minutes. On January 27, 2015 it will be available as a download, as an audio CD and as a special edition with audio CD and a Blu-ray Disc (BD-R format) with a stereo mix in 24 bit / 96 kHz and a 5.1 mix in Dolby AC-3. We’re already taking pre-orders via our online store!

Here’s a complete song to give you another taste of the album – These Are the Simple Days:

We’ll have more tickets available at the door!

The pre-sale for this year’s Generation Prog Festival has been a great success. We’ve managed to sell our entire pre-sale allotment of tickets with 10 more days to go until the event.

But don’t fret: We’ll have some more tickets available at the door! However, we recommend arriving early – which should be a must anyway, given the great bands playing!

Last call for the hotel package deals

Please note: We will only be able to accept orders for the hotel package deals until 3 p.m. on October 31, because that’s the booking deadline or the hotel rooms. So if you want to take advantage of this affordable offer, don’t hesitate any longer!

And the ticket pre-sale is also coming to an end: As of today (October 29), only 40 remain available. The plan is to offer some more at the counter, but the exact number of those is unclear, as we don’t know with 100% certainty how many people we’ll be allowed to let into the MUZclub. So if you want to be there, make sure to order your ticket soon, otherwise it could be too late!

Free download compilation for the Generation Prog Festival 2014 released

The_New_Generation_of_Prog_2014_cover

Our friends at Prog Sphere have just released a free download compilation featuring all bands performing at this year’s Generation Prog Festival – including an exclusive edit of a brand-new Haken song from their upcoming EP Restoration! And more: Since the festival bands would only amount to about 30 minutes of music, we’ve added songs by bands from our label Generation Prog Records to make for a total playing time of 76 minutes – yes, you can burn your own CD! Among them a song from the new Cea Serin album that came out last week and an exclusive advance track from THEO, a prog rock project that we expect to be talked about quite a bit when its debut album is released in November. Download the free compilation “The New Generation of Prog 2014″ here:

Coming soon: Cea Serin – The Vibrant Sound of Bliss and Decay

The Vibrant Sound of Bliss and Decay

We’re very excited to welcome another band on an international level to Generation Prog Records: Cea Serin. Even before their debut, these guys from Louisiana were rocking the charts at mp3.com, and with their 2004 album “… Where Memories Combine …”, they established themselves as a unique band whose metal is without a doubt progressive, yet manages to avoid the all-too-familiar paths taken by bands like Dream Theater and their imitators.

Update on September 2: New date, advance download offer!
Their new album “The Vibrant Sound of Bliss and Decay” is scheduled for release on October 6. We’re already taking pre-orders via our online store! If you pre-order the CD directly from us, you can request a free advance download of the album right away!

Here’s a lyric video for a complete song from the upcoming album to whet your appetite – The Victim Cult:
