More information: With their virtuoso yet easily digestible style, Special Providence from Hungary are one of the better known modern instrumental bands. With an emphasis on good tunes rather than endless flashy soloing, the band has created a unique style – a mixture of modern jazz, progressive rock/metal and electronica – which manages to impress and engage the listener both at the same time.
January 2012 saw the band release their 3rd album ’Soul Alert’ which has proven to be their biggest success so far. This album received unanimous praise and occupied the number 1 spot at the US Gagliarchives Progressive Chart for 9 weeks. After enthralling Japanese audiences in late 2012, the band undertook a tour of the EU with swedish prog outfit Beardfish in the autumn of 2013.
