In August 2010, Prog Sphere released its first ever Progstravaganza compilation. After four years, twenty compilations, over 460 bands showcased, and more than 65,000 downloads, Prog Sphere Promotions is ready to release its first physical compilation CD. Progstravaganza: Beyond Frontiers, is ready for pre-order at Progify store, and will be released on October 14th, 2014. This new compilation includes twelve progressive rock and metal bands from all around the world who are itching to show their talent to global audience.
From the very beginning, Prog Sphere Promotions has sought to bring the very best upcoming progressive rock and metal bands to its audience, while also offering a presentation that the discerning prog lover has come to expect from his or her collection. To this end they have enlisted the talent of Frank Gingeleit of Living Tunes Mastering to master the newest compilation. For those with an eye for beautiful album covers, Prog Sphere Promotions have retained the services of the talented Chris van der Linden of LindenArtwork for the artwork and six-page digipak.
In addition to being the first physical release of the Progstravaganza series, Beyond Frontiers will also be accompanied by Prog Sphere’s first printed magazine. All of the artists from Progstravaganza: Beyond Frontiers will be featured in this issue with reviews and interviews. All of the artists will also be featured in an upcoming documentary about Progstravaganza: Beyond Frontiers.
Naturally, the first physical release of a Progstravaganza compilation is only the beginning! Prog Sphere plans to continue releasing Progstravaganza compilations into the far future. Interested artists can get in touch with Prog Sphere for inclusion in future editions. In addition to be included on a future compilation, interested parties will receive a six month PR campaign through Prog Sphere Promotions.
