Anyone even slightly interested in Progressive Rock would find it difficult to get around the band Marillion, which in fact is the most successful act to have emerged from Britain's 1980s Neo-Prog Rock scene. Marillion's guitarist, Steve Rothery, happens to be the band's longest running member, having joined in 1979 at the age of 23, when they were still called Silmarillion.
If there's one thing those with a somewhat broader taste for music will agree upon, it's that Neal Morse is quite a personality in the Progressive Rock world.
Nightingale is a progressive rock/metal band from Örebro in Sweden. Nightingale began in 1995 as a sole goth rock project of Dan Swanö, designed to explore his brief fascination with the genre, also evident on Edge of Sanity tracks such as “Sacrificed”. On October 19,2014, Nightingale released their latest studio album entitled “Retribution”. The album contains ten songs which reflect the hardrock/prog side of Swanö very good.
