Epic Tantrum biography
The band EPIC TANTRUM is an Eclectic Prog band that was founded in 2007 in Syracuse, New York by friends Peter and Paul. They began as a duo recording classical guitar pieces. They enjoyed working together so much that they began to compose original material inspired by the music of Walter BECKER and Donald FAGEN, both of STEELY DAN.

In 2011, they were joined by the drummer known simply as Z. The three of them recorded two demos ("31st" and "Mary"). In 2016, bassist Greg became a permanent member and as a quartet, they began touring and opening for bands (including KINGS X) and they also started working seriously on their debut album "Abandoned in the Stranger's Room" which was released in January of 2020.

Their music has been described as heavy rock with a lot of jazz influences added in to create an interesting mix that lies comfortable in the Eclectic Prog sub-genre because of its combination of styles that gel together perfectly.

The current line up consists of Peter LaVINE (vocals, guitar), Paul (vocals, guitar), Greg ROSS (bass, vocals) and Z (drums). The band cites their influences as RUSH, STEELY DAN, Steven WILSON, PORCUPINE TREE, MARILLION, GENESIS, PRIMUS, KING CRIMSON, and THE PINEAPPLE THEIF.

Review by johnlevyyprog

4 stars Brilliant debut album for a band that we should all keep an eye out for. It's a double CD. The first disc is all studio recordings. The second one is live. There is some overlap, for instance there disc one has the studio version of the song "Letting Go" and disc two has the live version. Not all of the songs on the second disc are from the studio side.

I like the live versions better in most cases, but not all. I will say that the live disc makes me want to see this band in concert.

The guitar playing on this is stellar. The song writing is clever and catchy. The artwork and packaging on the disc are great and tie it all together perfectly.

Impressive debut all around. Definitely a must have.

Thanks to tapfret for the artist addition.
