iNFiNiEN biography
Philadelphia-born iNFiNiEN combines eclectic musical personalities into a visionary, unified force. Far from the typical rock band, they explore new territories of sound by using exotic scales, chords, and rhythms. Using rock, jazz, soul, world, and classical influences, the quartet plays intricately composed songs with flights of fiery and explosive improvisation, driving polyrhythmic grooves, and socially insightful song lyrics. With three albums under their belt the band has found its niche as something truly unique within the international progressive scenes.

The quartet's third record, "Light at the Endless Tunnel" (2016), is a pinnacle of the band's sound and approach to composition and takes cues from all over the music world. Full of beautiful engulfing soundscapes, Old World melodic lyricism, heavy metal riffs, explosive improvisation, futuristic synth textures, Movie Score level grandeur, and socially conscious lyrics. One can expect to hear in any given piece a vast array of influences and styles presented in an evocative presentation. Their compositions borrow just as much from romantic composers like Debussy and Faure as from contemporary artists like Bjork, Tori Amos and Radiohead, world music such as Indian Carnatic music, West African, Middle Eastern and Latin, and even adventurous fusion like Mahavishnu Orchestra, Secret Chiefs 3, John Coltrane and John Zorn. An entity unto itself, iNFiNiEN stirs listeners through a singular and moving musical adventure.

Review by wiz_d_kidd

4 stars Imagine yourself in a smoke filled night club of the late fifties, grooving to the heart-melting serenades of a lovely female jazz vocalist as she nails more sharps and flats than a box of knives, and effortlessly hops octaves note-to-note as if her voice knew no range limitations. Imagine also that you plucked away her stogie-puffing jazz-hammering piano player and replaced him with a full-on prog band that can crank out deliciously innovative grooves that accompany her perfectly while being outstanding on their own. If you can imagine that, you've just imagined iNFiNiEN.

This band is amazing and quite innovative in their overall approach to music. The closest band, in a stylistic sense, I can think of is Mad Fellaz from Italy (c.f. "Hollow Shell" on Mad Fellaz II) -- and they're only a vague match stylistically.

I was fortunate enough to see them live at ProgDay in September 2017. There were many bands that played those two days, and iNFiNiEN were one of only two bands that garnered full-audience standing ovations -- the second was Shylock from France. They were clearly one of the highlights of the festival.

This prog album is not only filled with jazz vocal stylings, but you'll hear some funky passages, as well as ethnic-influenced numbers. Vocal surprises abound, and the music just progs-out throughout! Love it! An easy 4.5 stars for innovativeness and execution!

Thanks to raff for the artist addition.
