Many believe progressive rock or metal is retro. Sounds from the 70s, for collectors or an eccentric niche..but the truth is that prog, even back then was just pushing the boundaries of rock. That is what progressive music is.
It is music that progresses, takes the best of all genres and pushes it to discover something never heard before.

I am very grateful to these film festivals for welcoming and celebrating a progressive music video, and I want to thank all of you Proggers for never giving up listening to and loving Prog.
