SAMURAI OF PROG
THE LADY AND THE LION AND OTHER GRIMM TALES I
To już 11sty studyjny album Samurajów progresywnego rocka. I za dużo, od pewnego czasu, się nie zmienia. Ponad 40 min. różnorodnej muzyki około prog-rockowej z wpływami folku, muzyki "teatralnej", i różnych, czasem bardzo ciekawych dźwięków. Dobry, solidny, acz nie porywający, album. Ci, którzy lubią ostatnie produkcje Samurajów będą zadowoleni.
Founded in 2009 as a multinational collaboration project
Multinational ensemble THE SAMURAI OF PROG was formed as a project lead by Finland-based Italian composer and bassist Marco Bernard. He's been active in the Finnish Association for Progressive Music since 1995, and have been involved in their Colossus Magazine since 1996 - and instrumental in the Colossus series of theme albums they have created in cooperation with French label Musea Records.
It was for a contribution to one of those projects that The Samurai of Prog was born, and joining Bernard as permanent members we find US artist Steve UNRUH and Finnish drummer Kimmo Pörsti. Besides this core trio, the philosophy of this band appears to be to involve additional musicians as needed and wanted, and their debut effort Undercover from 2011 bears testimony to that line of thinking, with a list of guest appearances impressive in length, scope as well as quality.
