SwordLord Productions takes the reigns for the official Kick-Off Show for ProgPower XIV in what is sure to be an amazing and unforgettable night of heavy metal.
Kicking off the evening will be California-based progressive metal newcomers IN THE SILENCE, enjoying the success of their new album A FAIR DREAM GONE MAD. The album has made the top 20 albums of the year on metalstorm.net and continues to garner favorable reviews all over the internet.
Next on the list is CIRCLE II CIRCLE fronted by former Savatage vocalist Zachary Stevens. CIRCLE II CIRCLE, known for hard-hitting, powerful progressive metal will be performing a very special 90 minute set consisting not only of their greatest hits but the entire WAKE OF MAGELLAN album in it’s entirety. WAKE OF MAGELLAN is a concept album by Savatage detailing the story of two historical events – the Maersk Dubai incident and the murder of Irish reporter Veronica Guerin. This album is considered by many to be the best album by Savatage.
Headlining the evening will be LUCA TURILLI’S RHAPSODY – this is the first time this band will play a show in the United States. Playing their self-labeled brand of “Cinematic Heavy Metal,” LUCA TURILLI’S RHAPSODY will feature an amazing set featuring video accompaniment to their music. The band will also play a number of songs from Luca Turilli’s solo projects which have never been performed anywhere on the North American continent. This will be a very special set running over 2 hours in length and will not be duplicated at any other show.
