    Aereostella - Down to one or two Releases a year (they will do Barock Project though)
    Andromeda Relix - Are much more into their Hard/Heavy side than before
    Black Widow - Reduced the number of Releases and release more Black Metal than before
    MaRaCash - Slowed down and went to "saver" grounds than before…

    Etc. Etc. Etc.
    Yes, Italian labels release less, but that's a general tendency at least for labels dealing with prog rock. There are more self-releases or digital-only releases. Some Italian artist also migrate to labels from other countries.

    The first long track is really good, but all the rest is uninspired noodling on piano or acc. guitars.
    I had to stop after a about half of those because I was nearly bored to death..

    There where always a lot of self-releases or digital-only Releases. I got many of my Italian Albums directly from
    the bands.

    Of course there where also some bands on foreign lables like Musea in France etc.

    I can't see an increase in those channels latley. Do you have excamples here?

    Eveline’s Dust "K"- GEP
    Twenty Four Hours "Close-White-Lamb-Walls" - Musea
    Ifsounds "An Gorta Mór" - Melodic Revolution Records

    Thanks for that, I'm just trying to figure out where the market for Italian Prog is moving to.

    Right. Except for the title track, all the rest is needless filler.

    the first Aliante was very good... looking forward to the 2nd
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    Interesting. I missed the first Aliante from 2017, not sure how. I'm sampling that album now. Sounds a lot like the better Taproban albums, which I like quite a bit. I may grab that one, and will definitely look into the new one.

    I liked the Hora Prima better. I'll have to keep an eye out for it.
