The Reformation biography
The Reformation is a Bay Area progressive rock band that formed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 2010. The name stems from the literal reformation of a defunct group into a more evolved band; in the figurative sense, they attempt to reform music into their own interpretations. Their lineup consists of multi-instrumentalists Kyle Brower, Matt Penco, Caroline Schneider, and Dan Miller. These young, devoted musicians show their listeners why they believe that music is the most powerful form of art.

Their sound can be likened to many artists, but primarily The Mars Volta, Pink Floyd, Audioslave, King Crimson, Mumford & Sons, and Rush. Consequently, their own style is a melting pot of many different types of music. They create catchy jazz-funk dance songs while simultaneously incorporating more unconventional elements of heavy psychedelia, atonality, and experimental improvisations. While remaining progressive, they strive for a commercially viable style. Because of this, their songs open the average listener's ears to multifaceted music with developed musicianship and a tight sound.

They released their self-titled debut album in 2011 and their second album, Fatal Expectation, in 2013. Their music has received radio airplay on 92.1 WPTS-FM in Pittsburgh. In an album review, Music Street Journal editor-in-chief G.W. Hill said, "I like [the Fatal Expectation] album quite a bit. These guys are pretty amazing musicians and the range of sounds is pretty impressive.[...]However you slice this beast, it's creative, inventive and pretty darned cool."

In 2015, they began recording tracks for their third release, an EP, which is slated for a 2016 release. The Reformation is an independent act currently seeking a record label that will assist in promotion, distribution, and tour support.

The Reformation Eclectic Prog

Review by Epignosis
Special Collaborator Eclectic Prog Team

2 stars The first album from The Reformation presents an unusual collage of styles, including heavy blues rock, funk, psychedelic and avant-garde passages, and rapid spoken word. There are flashes of inspired guitar and keyboard passages peppered throughout; most other times, it sounds like a band in search of direction and its own sound.

'Sweet Redemption' Following a lengthy, baleful introduction, the roadhouse guitars come out, growling ZZ Top style. The vocals are a throwback to 1980s female-fronted rock (think Pat Benatar or Heart).

'Mechanical Blues' As the title suggests, this is largely a straightforward blues rock song, but it transforms into a progressive rock guitar jam midway through.

'Between Two Times' Electric piano-led and with some mighty fine guitar soloing later, 'Between Two Times' is a pleasant soft rock song, somewhat in the vein of Steely Dan.

'Ghost House Funk' Speaking of Steely Dan, this song makes use of a disharmonious chord not unlike 'Kid Charlemagne.' The male vocals here have a 'curled upper lip' slight snarl, similar to Wild Cherry. The electric piano break is the best part of a rather generic funk rock tune.

'The Rhythm of Fate' Heavy riffing and aggressive vocals return here in the album's lengthiest track, its length attributed to psychedelic jamming and noise rock tangents.

Thanks to epignosis for the artist addition.
