If you want to find out anything about melodic rock, you go to heavyharmonies.com. If you want to read about modern rock, you head on over to melodic.net and if you want to know more about progrock bands, you visit progarchives.com and so I did with Kingfisher Sky. They´re from the Netherlands and was started by former Within Temptation drummer Ivar De Graaf and classically trained vocalist Judith Rijnveld, 4 more musicians joined the band and they released their debut "Hallway of dreams" in 2007. Influenced by artists like Tori Amos, Marillion, Anathema and Porcupine Tree, the band received rave reviews for this album as well as the follow up "Skin of the earth" in 2010.
We´re talking heavy song based prog here where songs like "The craving", "Seven feet" and "Persephone" stand out and another cool song is "Through my eyes" that bring thoughts to Page and Plant.
I like this a lot!
