Released on the Burning Shed label, Chalk Lines is the second album from guitarist/vocalist Randy McStine's ambitious Lo-Fi Resistance project.
A powerful fusion of Alt Rock, Singer Songwriter and Progressive influenced styles, hard-hitting riffs, soaring melodies and complex rhythms collide in this distinctively American take on contemporary Art Rock.
Featuring Porcupine Tree's Gavin Harrison on drums throughout, other performances come courtesy of Colin Edwin, John Giblin, Dug Pinnick (King's X) and John Wesley. Dave Kerzner (Kevin Gilbert, Steve Hackett) co-writes and co-produces.
The track The Silent War is available as a free download and the title track can be heard on the Burning Shed page for the album.
Colin Edwin and Jon Durant team up to create their first fully collaborative release, Burnt Belief.
A collection of beautifully textured atmospheric instrumentals, the music blends electronic rhythms, Colin's fluid fretless bass, middle-eastern influenced percussion and Durant's unique, liquid guitar style.
An engrossing sonic adventure, also featuring Geoff Leigh and Jerry Leake.
Available as standard cd and a special limited edition cd in a tin with a signed insert.
Kompendium is the new conceptual project from Magenta's Rob Reed.
Three years in the making, the album boasts a phenomenal cast of guest players including Steve Hackett, Gavin Harrison, Nick Beggs, Jakko Jackzyk, Francis Dunnery, Mel Collins and BJ Cole. Dave Stewart arranges for and conducts the London Session Orchestra on this large-scale labour of love.
Rob Reed says of the album, "This is classic Prog with Celtic influences. It's a concept album, and hopefully will appeal to those who enjoy War Of The Worlds, Dark Side Of The Moon and Tubular Bells."

Due to budget restrictions, Rick Wakeman's orchestral Rock concept Journey To The Centre Of The Earth was originally released in 1974 as a live album. Despite this, the album was an unexpectedly huge global chart success and became a defining moment in Wakeman's career.
38 years later and with the help of Classic Rock magazine, Wakeman has recorded the studio version he always intended to and has added 20 minutes of music written for the work at the time, which was unable to be accommodated by the vinyl format.
Exclusively available as a fanpack, this edition of the album comes with a replica 1974 concert programme and a 132 page magazine chronicling Wakeman's career and the genesis of the album.
