THE SAMURAI OF PROG – The Lady And The Lion (2021)

The creation of Italian-born but Finland based songwriter / bass player Marco Bernard, THE SAMURAI OF PROG have become known in progressive rock circles for their melodic neo prog creations, which feature lush and varied keyboard / guitar sounds, powerful picked bass guitar, dynamic drums, virtuosic violin and flute, and always mixed and mastered for audiophiles.
The Lady And The Lion” is their new album inspired by The Brothers Grimm fairy tales. This is the first part, with the second to be released late 2021. This benefits the run time to forty minutes, very accessible for the regular listener.
“The Lady and the Lion” features a terrific array of talent, including Ton Scherpenzeel and Bart Schwertmann (Kayak), Cam Blokland (Southern Empire), Valerie Gracious (Phideaux), Alessandro Di Benedetti (Mad Crayon), Rafael Pacha (Last Knight), Jaime Rosas (Entrance), and many more.
