The Dutch masters of prog return with their long awaited second album “Under A New Sign”. Three years ago Knight Area stunned the progressive rock world with their debut “The Sun Also Rises”. Knight Area creates epic symphonic rock in the vein of Genesis, Marillion, IQ, and Pendragon. Originally conceived as a studio project by the brothers Gerben and Joop Klazinga, Knight Area evolved into a touring band drawing quite a bit of attention in Europe. The band was honored to receive an invitation to perform in the US at Nearfest 2005, where they picked up many new fans.

“Under A New Sign” marks the first recordings of Knight Area as a true band, with other members having creative input. The band’s installed fanbase need not worry – the music is essentially the same but with some harder edge guitars. The new album should also appeal to fans of heavier progressive bands like Arena and Dream Theater.

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 the music. Noted mastering engineer Bob Katz gave the music an expansive and epic feel.
