A Social Network called Power of Prog was launched in September 29th 2009 by Florida based grassroots independent label Melodic Revolution Records which specializes in Progressive Rock as well as a few other genres of music. The Power of Prog name carried over from a 2008 Prog Festival hosted by the label in upstate New York. The idea of a Prog Social Network came to Nick Katona back in early 2009 after becoming frustrated with having to go to various sites to fill his prog needs.
According to Nick
There are many wonderful Prog sites on the net unfortunately each one is specialized by a topic, one site might be for forums, another site for reviews, another site to purchase music, another site for blogs, and so on you get my point.
Nick wanted to change that concept and bring all those elements together in one location where musicians and fans can meet up and share conversations, videos, music, forums, groups, and other ideas. So there you have it a social network for the prog minded. What you will not find here, Games, Pop Ads and spammers.
Moving forward in 2016, Power of Prog will be closing its Social Network site, times are changing as Social Media continues to evolve, we have kept it all in tact here and plan on adding more features to this site in the future. That said, as of right now this new Power of Prog site will not include band and or member profiles, but we are looking into adding that feature here in the future.
Just some of the styles of Prog you will find here on Power of Prog
Canterbury Scene, Christian Prog, Crossover Prog, Eclectic Prog, Experimental/Post Metal, Heavy Prog, Indo-Prog/Raga Rock, Jazz Rock/Fusion, Krautrock, Neo-Prog, Post Rock/Math rock, Prog Folk, Progressive Electronic, Progressive Metal, Proto-Prog, Psychedelic/Space Rock, RIO/Avant-Prog, Rock Progressivo Italiano, Symphonic Prog, Tech/Extreme Prog Metal
