Progressive Rock & Progressive Metal - E-Zine

Coalition is a band that is deeply entrenched around a symphonic style.
Among hundreds of old and new bands, I could mention some of them that we like a lot, and still today, form part of our collections of vinyls and CDs. But, between the bands we choose, in a particular way, what are the albums we like? Of course, this is an intriguing question. Surely I would choose many of bands of the seventies that made a revolution in our ears, and so far today impressed many of "new" prog rock listeners and musicians. However, with a particular attention, I would choose many bands of this new century too, that today make a revolution in our ears too, somehow many of those stunning revelations, deserve special attention. As an example, I would talk about a new group called Coalition, a awesome and amazing band. Coalition is a band that is deeply entrenched around a symphonic style, the main leader is Steve Gresswell, an experienced and talented musician, also very well inspired, accompanied by two other musicians who are well aligned with the musical ideas of Steve, together, created a powerful symphonic prog rock with various aspects and high sense of variety. Their musical references can be classified as a blend of Symphonic Progressive Rock with Neo-Progressive Rock, strongly decorated with millions of symphonic and atmospheric elements. The melodic vocals from Paul Bulger are so beautiful and soft, that fits perfect with the music, wonderful solos of guitar, with incredible, atmospheric and symphonic keyboards constantly dominate all arrangements, also adorned by nice guitar bass sounds, where the drums, like a special condiment, complements the arrangements. It is clear that these three musicians are masters of their musical arts, they display musical talent enough to become famous, like many musicians and bands of the past, and inevitably be among the best bands of this year and also of this century."In Search of Forever" contains 10 songs, almost 71 min of a pure musical delight, all of the tracks are well thought-out, well-performed and well-produced, full of distinct and precise compositions, like me, I believe that, the future listeners, after listen Coalition and their album, surely will be humming the musics around many weeks. All tracks on "In Search of Forever" are so amazing and fantastic, you must listen them carefully, meanwhile, the songs "Spirit Guide", "Rise of the Phoenix", "Changes", "Distant Plains", "On the Wings of an Angel" and "Reflections" represents all the Coalition musical references, it´s clear that shows the band signature and their real musical line. The music from Coalition, follows in the same line and style such as the bands "Coda", "Maze of Time", "Like Wendy", "Pallas, "Sean Filkins", "IQ", "Finch", "Pendragon", "Lady Lake", "Egdon Heath", "Camel", "Zenit", "Sebastian Hardie", "Marillion", "Quorun", "Mars Hollow", "Galleon", "Ephemeral Sun", "Yes", "Mangrove", "Salmon" and many other Symphonic Progressive Rock bands that we know and love. In fact, "In Search of Forever" is an amazing and unique journey from the beginning to the end, enjoy this amazing music, certainly is a band and a album that deserves to be discovered immediately, because their quality standard musical is so amazing that deserves our special attention, moreover, the band's music is a true delight to the connoisseur of Symphonic Progressive Rock style. Brilliant, fantastic and an amazing album and band, highly recommendable...
