The Flow - Incubation (GR 2003)
"'THE FLOW' is a progressive/psychedelic/space rock band from Patras, Greece. They were formed in 2000 and since then they have released one album called 'Incubation' (released in 2003) and have played many concerts in Greece. Their style revolves around 60's krautrock and progressive rock of the 70's. Some of their influences are GONG, ASH RA TEMPEL, CAN, AGITATION FREE, VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR and many more. Furthermore they blend traditional folk Greek melodies played by original traditional Greek instruments such as 'daouli' (a kind of drum) and the 'flute of Pana' (ancient Greek flute). They also love blending the old sound (vintage synths) with the modern one (laptop)."

Very competent progressive rock band that clearly deserves more recognition. Rather than the above mentioned bands I hear some reflections of GENESIS and PINK FLOYD, and like with most of the better 70's prog rock bands one can also clearly detect some jazz influences. Also reminds me of the better works of 2nd generation prog bands like PORCUPINE TREE and should appeal to any serious prog fan.
