The most important adjective is “powerful”. Everything oozes power. The compositions, the sound effects, the arrangements, the use of dynamics in mixing; everything has received a large dose of attention, creating an epic sound. These elements make a grandiose mix, where nothing stays the same, except the powerful impression that it all leaves. ~ Jerry Van Kooten – Dutch Progressive Rock Page DPRP

“We must be doing something right because people keep coming back!” laughs DPRP co-founder Jerry van Kooten. It was the Dutch computer programmer-turned reviewer’s idea that led to the creation of one of the longest running prog websites.

A prog fan from the 80s, living in Holland, it was hard to get information. Friends in England sent him mixtapes but in the mid-90s there was nothing on the web. DPRP was one of the first sites providing information on the genre.

He says: “It’s no longer about spreading the information because that is happening all over the internet so right we’re focusing on telling people about new releases. ~ excerpt from Prog Magazine January 25, 2108

CD Metallia - Oh. aka Olivia Hadjiioannou

“Metallia” by Oh. is an epical prog-metal composition in six parts. A multi-layered sonic piece of ravishing solo electric guitars, time-bending tempo shifts, grooving bass lines and deranged drums.

This instrumental progressive metal album will reveal its intricacies and hidden depths over time. It will extract from your mind pure visions, to mend your mental pictures, preen presumptions and to elicit an element of the unexpected…. because that is what will transmute your subliminal mind map into a remarkable blueprint which will lead you from wherever you are now, to wherever you want to be.
