Believe it or not, my prog rock period was during the same years as my punk rock period.
In this track, the signature drum sound and yummie driving bass of late 70’s, early 80’s are perfectly present. I’m very flattered to be included in a song with the roots in a genre that’s meant much to me (who could have thought…), the production is perfect and contemporary and my voice even almost sound cool. Thanks Zep, amazing track.

Thanks. I’m glad you liked it.
I’ve heard some peeps saying the same thing (Progrock + punk) - mainly from the progrog peeps who later got hooked into punk message and music. Don’t know if it’s true the otherway around, though.

I’ve updated the mix, bcos I found out the vox was a bit too low on the more high energy parts. Lifted it up a notch.

That’s the way I went, from prog to punk and then on to post punk/New wave stuff and so forth. The updated version of this track is even better, thanx

….and with signature drum sound and a driving bass I meant Genesis from “And then there were three” and onwards. Another band with that particular sound that I liked was Gentle Giant and wasn’t the Yes sound around the time of “Going for the one” like that too?

Hit me more like a great oasis than a forest at first but then the lush greenery somehow kicked in with the wonderful vocal and I was immediately transported to idylls of the king and tales of Gawain, the green knight…really beautiful…and the return of the saracen just after half way is great. Musical storytelling at its best
