Album Notes
Jupiter Rising: Fifth Mass From The Sun

- "the debut album is....gigantic, varied without end....offers a variety of arrangements, masterful musical performance. Intelligent prog from the States. Light years away from all the annoying mainstream outpourings, Cloud Over Jupiter offers the musical answer" ------Breakout Magazine, October, 2015

-"While the...sound hearkens back to the '70's, there is nothing retro about this bold band......this band could become a significant player on the contemporary progressive rock scene...." --------Progression Magazine, October, 2015

- "the complexity of the incredible: from heavy attacks up to sensitive moments, tracks with vocals, then formidable instrumental passages again.....Prog at its Best...!" ------Breakout Magazine, October, 2015

Cloud over Jupiter presents a powerful new voice in progressive rock, one led by multi-instrumentalist Jerry King and featuring Michele King on vocals and Bill Jungwirth on percussion. The music is dangerous and probing, evoking the best ‘70s prog acts without resorting to clichés. The album of ten original tracks and one cover—a reinterpretation of Black Sabbath’s“Rat Salad”—spans from aggressive rock to dreamy soundscapes, and includes guest musicians Pete Prown (Guitar Garden), Ric Parnell (Atomic Rooster, Nova, Spinal Tap), Pete Thompson (Robin Trower), Richie Castellano (Blue Oyster Cult), Jamie Bruhn (the Lizardz), Mark Larson (the Lizardz), Mike Kinney (KGP Conspiracy) and others.
Jerry King says, “I wanted half of the album to represent sound like a sci-fi horror movie soundtrack—‘Beyond the Oort Cloud’ and ‘Voyage To Titan’ are my personal soundtrack. The rest is meant to be dreamy and more relaxed, but still holding qualities of a dream gone bad (evident on ‘Turnaround’ and ‘13’). Add some funk in there (‘Happy Hands’), while ‘Love Still Remains’ is the song of lamentation and loss.”
All ten of the original tracks were written by King.
Jerry King, guitar, bass guitar, vocals; Michele King, piano, vocals, clarinet; Bill Jungwirth, drums & percussion; Ric Parnell, drums; Pete Prown, guitar; Pete Thompson, drums; Richie Castellano, guitar; Henry Howard, bass guitar; Ginger Marten, violin; Mark Larson, synths, mellotron; Jamie Bruhn, bass guitar; Pam Ross, flute, vocals; Travis Plantico, drums; Mark Carlson, effects; Mike Kinney, voices



to write a review


buy this you'll love it
Buy this you will not be disappointed. Some of the best put together music I've heard in years!


I dont recommend
Overtly overdone, almost to the point of vanity. Most tracks contain so many different timings and groupings of instruments it is hard on the ear to even discern what they are trying to accomplish. I would recommend this compilation remain forever in the abyss of the unknowns.

Mark Jones

Prog of a different color
Bought on a recommendation. Really different prog -- not your usual Genesis or Pink Floyd clone with too many keyboards. I hear bits of King Crimson, but otherwise very unique -- maybe more Zappa or Beefheart. And some strong musicianship and vocals. I just like the vibe; not polished or clean. There's a vintage prog/psych feel.

KC McCrum

Album of the year
This may be the best album to come out of central Wisconsin or all of Wisconsin. I am always looking for what is next in music and this is it. Very original with great musicianship throughout.

Steve Gapinski

Awesome original music
This album is really great, original sounding music. I like the way it flows through many ups and downs in mood and it's many killer guitar parts as well as a super-solid rhythm section. The vocals and other instruments are all good too and effects used very tactfully. It's rock solid!


Like Zappa
This album is complicated instrumentally and you must listen to it with a fine ear. This is very original music. You should pick this one up!

Raoul Edwards

Really Well Done
I'm not much of a prog guy historically, however at the recommendation of a good friend and hearing about this album on various internet radio stations, I was really blown away at how original and how well done this album is. Jerry is a gifted writer and musician and he brings out the best of everything in these catchy, tricky songs. Nothing is predictable on this record. Once I think I can't be surprised anymore, I'm suddenly surprised. So, it's been a refreshing joy to listen to this record over and over. Standout tracks for me - Love Still Remains, 13, Beyond the Oort Cloud (Richie Castellano! Wow, that guy can PLAY!) It's just very refreshing to hear something new and original, period. Prog or otherwise. Well done Cloud Over Jupiter! Can't wait for the next one.
