about

PROGRESSIVE ROCK IN THE GRAND TRADITION

The past few years have seen the resurgence of progressive rock as displayed by the success of bands like OSI, Spock’s Beard and The Flower Kings. Knight Area, a new band from The Netherlands is poised to take the progressive rock world by storm.

Concept albums seem to be a prog rock trademark, take Genesis’ “The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway”, Rush’ “2112” and Marillion’s “Brave” as examples. Conceived over a period of 20 years by brothers Gerben and Joop Klazinga, "The Sun Also Rises" was ultimately composed and recorded during the past three years by keyboardist/drummer Gerben and flautist Joop with 8 other musicians from the Dutch progressive rock scene. The result is a stunning conceptual work of epic progressive rock that will appeal to fans of Camel, Pendragon, Genesis, and IQ.

Knight Area uses a full sonic palette that will stir the soul of any old or new school symphonic rock fan. Mellotron/flute interplay, Hammond organ, fluid lead synth and soaring guitar solos - it's all here! Dramatic vocals and a dynamic mix propel this emotion filled story.
