After a lengthy timeout, the Generation Prog concert series finally continues with a high-quality double package from Germany: Blind Ego and Seven Steps to the Green Door, who will perform a full headlining set each.
Blind Ego is a project of RPWL guitarist Kalle Waller. After three studio album under that name, in 2017 he finally put together a live band to take his music to the stage. The CD/DVD double package Liquid Live showcases this group’s impressive talents. Compared to Wallner’s main band, the music is more on the rock side and with Scott Balaban (Amon Ra) he has found a fitting voice for the harder, modern sound. They are supported by guitarist Julian Kellner (Dante), bassist Sebastian Harnack (Sylvan) and drummer Michael Christoph.
Blind Ego live:
Seven Steps to the Green Door are among Germany’s most established prog rock bands. Since their 2006 debut, which was awarded the Deutscher Pop&Rock Preis in two categories, the 8-piece around keyboardist/saxophonist Marek Arnold (also with Toxic Smile, Damanek, Cyril, ex-Stern Combo Meissen) and drummer Ulf Reinhardt has continually progressed. The last two albums in particular, The?Book (2011) and Fetish (2015) turned heads in the prog scene and resulted in performances at big festivals like Night of the Prog at Loreley and Crescendo in France. The music is equally defined by its melodic multi-part vocals and the often polyrhythmically intricate grooves.
