What was your best album of 2014? It’s a question that inevitably pops up around now every year. We are incredibly fortunate, and proud of the fact that our new album has been so well received since it was released in July. Now – we are very, very proud to see our album appearing on some end of year round ups.
An album that touches my soul every time I press play, the self-titled release from Abel Ganz is a record that will stay in my collection for the foreseeable future. Divine, beautiful, ethereal and, well, just darn good, as close to a religious experience as an agnostic can have!
Full of epic multi-part prog goodness and fused with gentle folk and country and more than a little slice of their Scottish homeland, there is the overriding conclusion that this is something quite special. This collection of songs is not only a winner from start to finish, it is sumptuously packaged and expertly produced and as close to a modern day classic as you are ever likely to get. It is the best release of the year hands down.

We are absolutely delighted to confirm that Abel Ganz will be joining the bill for the 2015 edition of RoSfest in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
To say we are excited, happy, and proud about this news does not even begin to describe how incredibly delighted we are!
When George first contacted us [very soon after the release of new album] we were literally bouncing around with excitement at the prospect – it’s been so hard for us to keep it a secret until now.
We cannot wait to get there and bring our music to some new [and hopefully some older ones too] friends. Thank you so much to everyone for the good wishes we have been receiving and thank you again to everyone who has bought and supported the new album – it really makes all the hard work worthwhile.
Abel Ganz is the Album of the Week with two tracks on the new DPRP Prog Rock Radio Show + 10 other great new releases.
Listen to the show here.
It has been such a long path to get where we are now – 5 years of incredibly hard work!
However – finally the day has arrived and we simply cannot wait to play some of the tunes from our new album for you tonight.
Please come along to the CCA in Glasgow and join us as we nudge ‘Abel Ganz’ out into the world.
