Greyfield biography
Started in Almeria, Spain in 2011

Greyfield is a Symphonic progressive Rock project with origin in Almerķa (Spain), but moved to Asturias in 2013. The band was founded in 2011 by Fernando Marin VEGA, which manages the project alone. The name Greyfield refers to an imaginary, dark and gloomy place. The music is that of a magician that gives colour and life to the landscape. Once the music ends, the scenery is again buried in the shadows of memory. Between 2011 and 2013 several demos were produced but it was in September 2014 that the most relevant project work, Greyield's self-titled album was released. Due to the nature of instrumental music, melody usually is given to a flute. Harmonics pads are usually made by the sound of a Farisa Compact and Eminent String Machine 310. Occasionally samples of Hammond B3 and Mellotron are used. The rhythm rests with guitar, bass and drums. In more complex songs such as Mediterranean Sonata, bass and guitar belong to the counterpoint of the song. Regarding style, GreyField has been influenced both the Rock and the Neoclassical music and share different technical elements with the Symphonic Progressive genre such as rhythmic variety, the prominence of keyboards and an extended duration format. It also provides a strong seal of Spanish identity by having influences in the Andalusian rock of the late 70s. Greyfield further lists Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Camel, Focus, Mezquita, Panta Rhei, Bela Bartok, and Igor Stravinsky among the influences.

Greyfield Symphonic Prog

Review by andrea

4 stars Greyfield is mainly the brainchild of Spanish multi-instrumentalist and composer Fernando Marin Vega, a talented musician from Almeria with a solid classical background. The eponymous debut album of this project was self-released in 2014 and it's an excellent instrumental work that blends classical influences and seventies progressive rock with a touch of Mediterranean folklore and Andalusian flavour. All the pieces are elaborate and complex but never boring...

Vintage sounds prevail, raging organ waves alternates with delicate, soaring melodies led by the flute, strummed acoustic guitars alternate with dreamy keyboards passages, there are sudden changes of rhythm and as the music flows away with your imagination you can cross breathtaking landscapes painted in grey and pink colours following the flight of some snow geese directed to the stars by the charm of a powerful wizard... Well, this work is definitely set in classic prog and every now and again it sounds to me as a weird cross between Camel and Genesis. Anyway, you can listen to the complete album from, so have a try and judge by yourselves!

Greyfield Symphonic Prog

Review by LearsFool

5 stars GreyField is the project of a one Ferdinand Marin Vega, and he has created symphonic majesty. Most of the tracks here are by turns driven by keys and winds rather than guitars, and it allows for some refreshingly beautiful music. The key sections include wonderful mellotron, and organ that sounds like we're back in the Sixties, and the winds are mainly pretty flutes. What guitar is there is mainly a nice acoustic one that backs the keys and winds perfectly, especially on "August Part I", where all of that, plus a bit of rare electric guitar, comes together for one of the album's crowning moments. The electric riffage is also rather modern, while everything else is Sixties and Seventies throwbacks... but it all comes together perfectly. The best symphonic of the year, and performed outstandingly by what I hope will be a rising star of prog.
Thanks to southsideofthesky for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
