Azureth biography

AZURETH is built around a commitment to compositional excellence, expansive epic melodies, moving musical drama, with deeply poetic, philosophical, well crafted lyrics underpinning this solid musical foundation. In one big sweep, AZURETH captures the essence of YES, GENESIS and KANSAS, distilling them into their very own, more contemporary "Alternative" flavored brand of Progressive Rock self evident in songs like "The Lathe Of Heaven", while on the other hand quoting the finest aspects of STEELY's DAN songwriting and story telling crafts, which can be heard in the poignant space ballad "The Grand Design". All the same, they manage to rip it up with fiery solos propelling the band into high speed exchanges and odd time signatures. This international group of progressive musicians are deeply influenced by the mystical and epic nature of Progressive Rock, the furious rhythm sections and fiery solos of Jazz-Rock Fusion, along with the power and raw energy of Progressive Metal.

After a year in the making, AZURETH is proud to announce immediate availability of their debut CD. AZURETH is a progressive rock band made up of musicians from US (Mark Connors & Steve Rivera) and Norway (Kenneth Aspeslaen). If you like bands like ELP, YES, KANSAS, RUSH, FLOWER KINGS, STEELY DAN, you will love AZURETH. Our debut CD contains almost 70 minutes of music. Beautifully illustrated lyric sheets and other goodies from AZURETH's website are included on the Extended cd version.
