23:39 - Apothecary Not sure if I'm really any sort of authority to answer that question, as my area of specialty within metal definitely ISN'T prog lol. You could debate that with Ivor or Ana (BloodTears) though
23:36 - Nimlot Isn't Haken enough to settle the question of influence?
23:35 - Apothecary I'd love to see Gentle Giant on here. Not sure how well that'd fly though. When it comes to those older, nonmetal bands it's usually a question of "how much did they influence metal's development?"
23:34 - Redn1ght Half-jokingly poking fun at the update list. 2/5 Black Metal bands.
23:33 - Nimlot Jethro Tull as well, so how about some Gentle Giant?
23:32 - Apothecary Still a rather silly statement, even if you are joking. Plenty of stuff is featured here, including King Crimson as far as old prog rock goes
After sharing a couple of new songs before, the Ukrainian black metallers Drudkh are premiering their forthcoming album in full today. So, this is an opportunity for the fans of the band and in general to hear it beforehand (available worldwide on April 20th via Season Of Mist).

Season of Mist is proud to announce the signing of Old Silver Key, a brand-new band born from the hyperactive mind of Drudkh mainman Roman Saenko.
Old Silver Key consists of the four Drudkh members plus French artist Neige (Alcest, Amesoeurs, Peste Noire) on vocals.
The aim of this new project is to create nostalgic, romantic and light atmosphere of solitude, beholding, childhood and warmth. The first album is already in recording process.
At the same time, the next Drudkh album is to be recorded this spring/summer. This ninth full-length will mark a return to the band's roots - long songs full of dark emotions and atmosphere of seasons change, close to the Ukrainians' early albums.
Season of Mist unexpectedly announced that Ukrainian Black Metal legends Drudkh will release a brand new album on September 20th, 2010. The new work will be entitled Handful of Stars and will also be available as a limited edition box set. More news to follow soon!
Season of Mist is proud to announce the freshly inked deal the label signed with play Slavonic heathen metal band Drudkh. Their cinematic, folk-influenced music focuses on a strong atmosphere with a lot of feeling, and the lyrical contents are about nature mysticism, seasons, philosophy, Ukrainian mythology, legends and history. Many of the band's lyrics are derived from the works of nineteenth and twentieth centuries Ukrainian poets.
Drudkh decided to issue this one public statement only. They will also in future stick to their general rule, which means that Drudkh will not be giving interviews nor make use of any internet platform:
"During all its history, the band followed a 'no photos, no interviews, no website, no gigs' policy, which was nobly accepted by Drudkh's new label Season of Mist. The absence of any comments or information from Drudkh's side gave an opening to a few ignorant internet warrior-fans to spread rumors, that the band embraces some extreme political views. This is absolutely misleading and a total profanation, since there is nothing in Drudkh's music or lyrics that would suggest any political outlook. Drudkh praise individualism, self-improvement and estrangement from modern values."
