Knight Area

Knight Area was founded in 2004 after Gerben Klazinga released the first Knight Area album: The Sun Also Rises. This album was a project of Gerben, who wrote all the music, and many musicians participated in the recordings of the album. The album was a worldwide success and as a consequence Gerben formed a band to play live. A new album was released in 2007 (Under a New Sign) after the band successfully played the European and American stages. The album was a real band effort which got very good reviews worldwide. In September 2009 the third album will be released and a short European festival tour will follow.

Style of Music
Knight Area plays symphonic rock music, also classified as neo-progressive rock.

The music is a variety of styles with very melodic keyboards and guitars and the songs vary from ballads to more rock and metal kind of music.


Gerben Klazinga, Keyboards and main Composer

Gerben raised with a vigorous segment of symphonic rock music. He was to a certain extent influenced by his 10 years older brother Joop, who listened over and over again to bands like Camel, Genesis, Saga, King Crimson and Barclay James Harvest. After he had taken some courses for the recorder, Gerben decided to focus on the classical piano. A particular space in the parental residence was ‘equipped’ as a music room, where soon after you could discover a little organ as well as a drum kit. Therefore, while unloading his juvenile frustrated emotions, he managed to develop into a fairly pleasant drummer.

    Just found Under a New Sign on my iTunes. I have no clue how I have this or where I got it from, but I'm rather impressed :) I wish more progressive albums randomly appeared on my computer! Hehe :)

    A real discovery. Knight Area opened the third and last of ProgPower Europe and surprised with a very nice melodic counter-point with respect to the more aggressive and loud band which made up the bulk of the festival. Definitely one of the bands to keep and eye on.

    Knight Area have been such a find, whether their tracks are twenty-seven seconds long or ten minutes. Great talent, great music and they even smile on the CD sleeve!
