Gods Of Steam - Illuminate My Mind (2016)

The one and only album from this British band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, keyboards and vocals.

A handful of guest musicians helped them out on keyboards, bass and vocals.

This album has flown under the radar of the prog community. I am not so sure if it is progressive rock at all. 

There is though a very healthy amount of neo-prog here. Melodic neo-prog. Add some rock too and you get this album. The Beatles is not a bad comparison here.

The music is very melodic but has some teeth now and then.

The vocals is really good and the addition of some strings and Arabic female vocals is some good details.

I would even say this band has some talent and should give us at least another album as there is some good things well worth building on here. I am afraid they may have split up, though.....

This is a decent to good album and well worth checking out for those into melodic neo-prog.
