A short introduction to The SAMURAI OF PROG…
SAMURAI OF PROG is a multinational (mainly instrumental) ensemble that was formed around 2009 as a project lead by Finland-based Italian composer and bassist Marco Bernard. Marco has been active in the Finnish association for Progressive Music since 1995, and had been involved in their Colossus Magazine since 1996.
He was also instrumental in the ‘Colossus’ series of themed albums created in cooperation with French label: Musea. It was for a contribution to one of those projects that SAMURAI OF PROG was born, and joining Bernard as permanent members were USA multi-instrumentalist: Steve Unruh and Finnish drummer: Kimmo Pörsti. Besides this core trio, the philosophy of this band appeared to be to involve additional musicians as needed and wanted, and their 2011 debut effort: ‘Undercover’ bore testimony to that line of thinking, with a list of guest appearances impressive in length and scope, as well as quality.
A 2nd album based on similar philosophy came along in 2013. Entitled: ‘Secret Of Disguise’ it was a double album that lead on to the 3rd release: ‘Imperial Hotel’, the epic 2014 studio production which featured members of: ENGLAND (UK), GLASS HAMMER (USA), KENSO (Japan), ANGLAGARD (Sweden) and GENESIS tribute act The MUSICAL BOX (Canada)!
After that came ‘Lost & Found’ in 2016, ‘On We Sail’ in 2017, ‘Archiviarum’ in 2018 and ‘Toki No Kaze {Winds Of Time}’ in 2019.
2020 brought: ‘Beyond The Wardrobe’ plus ‘Demise Of The Third King’s Empire’, which is an alternative version of (originally 57 minute long!) track: ‘The Demise’, originally released on the ‘Lost & Found’ album in 2016.
The end of spring 2021 brought the well received first of the studio albums based on the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm: ‘Lady & The Lion’, which was quickly followed in the summer of that same year by ‘White Snake & Other Grimm Tales II’.

A series of solo albums have also been recorded by the members of SAMURAI OF PROG and these are identically packaged in Lavish 6-Panel Mini LP Style Card Sleeves, and just like the SOP releases, these too seem to have an equally short shelf-life!

PLEASE NOTE: With SAMURAI OF PROG albums, the trend now is they manufacture a limited batch, sell and delete them in a short space of time! These are top-quality releases that sell at a very reasonable price and we always recommend you order them as soon as you see them rather that wait until it’s too late!

‘Omnibus 2-Middle Years’ is released on 15th November 2021.
