Prog Rock

Marillion (Hogarth era)

All images are copyrighted by their respective copyright owners.

After the departure of lead singer Fish, the band regrouped around new vocalist Steve Hogarth in 1989. After an album or two however, there's been no looking back: the band has gone on to create music far more original than their "neo-progressive" roots. Marillion remain the most successful groups of prog rock's "modern" era.

Marillion release Brave Live 2013

Marillion have released another version of their epic album Brave, recorded earlier in the year, on multiple formats:
"Recorded on the 9 March 2013 at the Marillion Weekend in Centre Parcs, The Netherlands. This concert film features the whole of the Brave album performed in full plus over an hour of encores and extras. This unique event was captured in glorious high definition by 15 cameras in a purpose built arena, bringing you a truly unique event and a defining moment in Marillion’s live performance career."
It's one of my favorite albums, just can't enough of it!
