Threshold formed in the leafy suburbs of Surrey, England in 1988. The band has released ten studio albums alongside numerous live albums and compilations. They are currently signed to Nuclear Blast Records.
Threshold’s latest studio album For The Journey was released in 2014. It includes the 12 minute epic The Box and opening single Watchtower On The Moon, which was featured on the Roadkill video game. The album charted in several countries, peaking at no. 19 in Switzerland and no. 33 in Germany and Finland.
They are best known for songs such as Mission Profile, Slipstream (featuring Dan Swanö) and Pilot In The Sky Of Dreams, which has over a quarter of a million video views and was featured on the movie soundtrack of In The Name Of The King.
Threshold have undergone some personnel changes over the years, most notably on vocals with Glynn Morgan returning to the band in 2017 after a 20 year absence. Morgan replaced former frontman Damian Wilson, who in turn replaced Andrew ‘Mac’ McDermott who sadly passed away in 2011.
The band has performed in over 20 different countries and at numerous rock festivals such as Sweden Rock, Masters Of Rock, Maximum Rock, Night Of The Prog, ProgPower and 70,000 Tons Of Metal.
Threshold are currently in the studio recording their new concept album Legends Of The Shires, due for release in the autumn of 2017.
A quick introduction to Norwegian Symphonic Proggers WOBBLER
WOBBLER is by many considered to be Norway's leading symphonic progressive rock band, and have released 4 albums of symphonic prog with a distinct vintage vibe, since they were formed in the small Norwegian town of Hønefoss in 1999. They are known for their love for analog equipment and the overall estethics of the 60's and 70's.
The bands current lineup features current and former members of TUSMØRKE, WHITE WILLOW, THE CHRONICLES OF FATHER ROBIN, LUKAS KASHA, SPIRITS OF THE DEAD, AIRBAG and IN LINGUA MORTUA. With Lars Fredrik Frøislie on keyboards and backing vocals, Kristian Karl Hultgren on bass, bass clarinet and bass pedals, Martin Nordrum Kneppen on drums, percussion and recorder, Andreas Wettergreen Strømman Prestmo on vocals, guitar, glockenspiel and percussion and Geir Marius Bergom Halleland on lead guitar and backing vocals, the band can avail itself of a considerable array of instruments that have a huge, and very interesting impact, on the overall sound.
Their last album, "From Silence to Somewhere", offers up a sound that is enigmatic, multi-flavoured and adventurous with the use of copious amounts of Mellotron, Moog, Hammond, Chamberlin and other classical analogue keyboards, and of course the renowned Rickenbacker bass. The guitar riffs go from poignant to edgy. Melancholy harmonies combine with powerful crescendos and high-energy, spinet-driven passages, flavoured with a touch of Flamenco, italian recitals and Renaissance music to produce an album comprising four epic tracks that explore the idea of metamorphosis and alchemy. It is a natural continiuation from WOBBLER's previous albums, but with a darker, more introspective edge. The album has been reviewed in over 20 different countries around the world since its release in October 2017. With "From Silence to Somewhere" WOBBLER has finally reached out beyond the inner circles of connoiseur prog.

Arabs in Aspic er et heavyprogband fra Trondheim med sine musikalske røtter godt plantet i rockens gullalder, 1970-Âra. Soundet er en salig blanding av tunge gitarriff og trommer, funky bass og perkusjon, dampende Hammondorgel, mellotroner og synther, toppet med bøttevis av vokalharmonier. Bandet slapp i 2017 sin femte fullengder, ´Syndenes Magi , som høstet svært gode omtaler i inn- og utland, pÂ tross av at det kun synges pÂ norsk på denne utgivelsen. I juni 2018 slapp de en 7-tommer med to helt nye låter, "De Dødes Tjern" og "Step into the Fire", i påvente av et kommende live-album fra bandets konsert i Trondheim, januar 2018. Arabs in Aspic spiller oftere konserter i utlandet enn her hjemme, så grip sjansen, varm opp rockefoten og nyt når de endelig spiller i moderlandet.
Arabs in Aspic består av:
Jostein Smeby / gitar & vokal
Stig A. Kvam-Jørgensen / tangenter & vokal
Erik Paulsen / bass & vokal
Eskil Nyhus / trommer
Alessandro Elide / perkusjon
