Crystal Palace + This Winter MachineCRYSTAL PALACE
The band received worldwide attention and positive feedback with the release of the Best-of-CD "Through the Years" (2005), enabling Crystal Palace to perform live regularly with other international artists at various festivals in Europe.In 2011, divergent musical interests emerged within the band, resulting in a new line-up.

Nils Conrad joined as guitarist and Frank Brennekam became the new man on drums. Work in this line-up turned out to be very creative and harmonious, enabling the band to go on tour, among others with well-known German progressive rock band RPWL, from 2011 until spring 2012. Only a few months after the new line-up was established, the band started writing new songs in 2012. Due to the very good cooperation among the musicians, a lot of outstanding material was created, enabling the band to start recording the album "The System of Events" in early 2013. On this production some successful external artists, such as Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree), Kalle Wallner and Yogi Lang (RPWL) guested.

In the summer of 2013, Crystal Palace was eventually signed by German label "Gentle Art of Music". In August 2014, Frank Brennekam had to leave the band due to poor health and was replaced by Tom Ronney. In 2016 the band's most successful album until that point, "Dawn Of Eternity", was released. The album reached #17 in the International AOR-charts. The band released the album "Scattered Shards" in spring 2018. This time Crystal Palace's line-up remained the same, but the band changed labels and decided to go with Progressive Promotion. An important reason for this change was to show that the band is able to arrange their music without prominent support. The sound of the band is characterized by melodic passages and instrumentally well worked-out themes that, when listened to carefully, entice the listener to sink into a pleasurable musical experience with their own imaginative thoughts

THIS WINTER MACHINE formed in mid 2016 after a series of ads led to jams that quickly turned into writing sessions.

Members have shared a stage with artists as diverse as Marillion and Uriah Heep, Tim 'Ripper' Owens, Magnum and Uli Jon Roth.

The debut album 'The Man Who Never Was' was released in Jan 2017 to widespread critical acclaim and a great response from the public.

They were nominated in the Best Newcomers category at the Classic Rock Society annual awards, which they won in 2018 and have also been included in many 'Names To Watch' lists for 2017/18.
