SOMA PLANET is a Progressive rock band born in the mid-Nineties, in Barcelona, Catalunya. At first very influenced by bands such as KING CRIMSON (Seventies and Eighties), GONG, CAN or EMBRYO, the musicians quickly achieved a personal style. All their efforts and time were dedicated in finding formulas to play music that permitted at the same time breaking with traditional harmonies and structures, following improvisational patterns built slowly in time, starting in understanding music as a game. The first eponymous album has been recorded during summer 2003... "Bholenath" is the second opus of the band, released in 2008 by the Musea label. There's everything you can imagine in it, as far as Seventies are concerned (Except for keyboards): versatile drumming, roaming bass, a mix of acoustic and electric sequences, vocal (A little) and instrumental (A lot) tracks, one minute interludes and 9-10 minutes complex pieces, nice melodies, frantic rhythms and peaceful moods, electronics, a pandemonium of heavy saxophones and whispering flutes. Their musical style, still influenced by GONG, is a complex mix of Progressive rock, experimental music, jazz and ethnic influences (Indian among others) and percussions. Enjoy !
