 Arena - XX (DVD) (2016)

Neo-prog rock from the United Kingdom, latest music DVD released in 2016.

The gathering of ARENA's famous musicians makes a super-group: Mick POINTER (Ex-MARILLION) plays the
drums, Clive NOLAN (PENDRAGON) the keyboards, and Keith MORE (ASIA)
played the guitar until replaced by John MITCHELL (Ex-Kino).Vocalist Rob
SOWDEN has been with the band since IMMORTAL? and the bass player is
Ian SALMON. There have also been some guest appearances by Tracy
Steve ROTHERY (MARILLION's gifted guitarist).

"Songs From The Lion's Cage" is then a very professional Progressive
rock, both close to MARILLION and hard-rock. "Pride", their second opus
issued in 1996 (one year after the previous one) confirmed the high
musical level of this band, at a time when they added a touch IQ to
their music. Curiously the band's sound gained in heaviness after their 2
first albums, and the music quality increased a lot in originality and

Recorded in 1998, "The Visitor" alternates passages inspired by Steve
HOGARTH's group along with some dark instrumentation. "Immortal" shows a
new heavier dimension that still remains anchored in the best
neo-Progressive music. "Moviedrome" is an excellent twenty minute track.
"Contagion" follows the glorious tradition of "Immortal", although I
found it more hard edged and multidimensional from all aspects. This
powerful and evoking concept album tells about the quest for redemption,
through the vision of a dark and anguishing future. No doubt about it,
people won't have to think for a long time before electing the best
album of winter 2002-2003!

''Pepper's ghost'' from 2005 sees Arena entering the realms of a quite
heavy and very symphonic sound with some metal elements, a real
highlight of their career. Long-time members Rod Sowden and Ian Salmon
left the band in 2010 and they were replaced by Paul Manzi and John
Jowitt respectively, the latter starting his second stint with the
band.''The Seventh Degree Of Separation'' offers a very fresh and
pounding sound, but the song structures had now become a bit
conventional. Same goes for their latest entry, the 2015 ''The Unquiet
Sky'', here Jowitt's place has been taken by newcomer Kylan Amos.

One of the best bands on the English scene nowadays... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
