Fibonacci Sequence is a very eclectic instrumental prog / fusion band from MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin, United States. I received a copy of their debut album, Numerology in the mail as well as their We Three Kings promo cd and these guys are truly worthy of a place on the archives! In their music, I hear echoes of Floyd, Rush, Genesis, Dream Theater, King Crimson, and even a little bit of Tull on a few occasions, but they still sound, to my ears at least, very unique and original.

Good band. The music is not very jazzy so they might end up in Eclectic or Crossover, but I agree they should be evaluated by the JRF team first. I'll pass this on.

Mixed touches (fusion, heavy, and symph ... ) around them really ... fit for Neo or Eclectic, my two cents.

Great stuffs, indeed! Thumbs Up

Neo (a little bit), Crossover (perhaps) and probably Eclectic would be the right choice. Let's pass it on. Listening them right now :-)

Eclectic is for sure, not neo , not at all, and not cross either. With a jazzy touch , is great album.

Not everything. Some bands still fall in between the genres. I meant that they are a little bit of Neo and a little bit of Crossover, with Eclectic as my conclusion.

What about being respectful to the people who work hereConfused? If you don't like the site's addition policies, there are different ways to point things out.

Anyway, I've got both the band's full-length album and their debut EP, though I have only heard the former. They didn't strike me as JR/F, but they definitely deserve a spot here. Having built a network of contacts with prog artists in the past few months, I can tell you one thing: letting bands linger in limbo for months, if not years, is hurting PA's reputation. For those people, any exposure they can get is vital, especially as regards reviews.

What I found now on JRF thread John's opinion was they could fit "heavy prog, eclectic, or possibly something in a metal flavor". No more info...

That hasn't stopped prog metal acts like Derek Sherinian from getting added to the genre in the past.

@JLocke: yeap I know, the JRF team's degree of tolerance for non-"pure" material has varied a lot and is still varying, I could never say what they're going to accept and what not, in the post you quoted I was just taking a guess, not writing down a verdict.

@Slava: if you want I can give them another listen and try with another team that I would find suitable.

I like the name though. It sounds proggy.

The name sounds like Math Rock :-)

And to confuse it all, there are Heavy parts as well. Actually, they're not as rare as I though.

Listening again... and I'm asking myself why I sent this to the JRF team Embarrassed It's a clear case of metal-fusion, they'd sit perfectly near MCM, whose description fits this band perfectly: They're in the same vein as bands like PLANET X or LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT, instrumental technical progressive metal with touches of fusion, throwing in lots of genres such as latin and funk and truly exploring new, progressive territory.

I'll alert the PMT.
