Hallo,
I would like to introduce my Progressive/Psychedelic Rock Band Geysir. The band was founded in 2009.
We released our debut EP in November 2010 and now we are working on our album wich is going to be released in July 2011. The band consists of: vocals, piano, violin, guitar, bass, drums; Mostly, we set german poems to music.
You can listen to our EP as on http://geysir.bandcamp.com. The download album is purchased via itunes, amazon etc., the CD via http://geysir.bandcamp.com..
Bye,
Frank

Splendid stuffs, aggressive and intuitive hard-edged heavy rock tinged with psych, ext. metal, symph ... Heart

IMHO fitter for Eclectic (or Crossover) than pure Psych. A good EP indeed. Clap

Alex, any comments? Wink

hmmh, maybe you can call this Cinematic Prog, however, the songs are tricky  ... except 'Wortlos' maybe which is more of a straightforward grooving thing
sounds really prolific, vocals in German, hard to categorize though, the guitar is often psychedelic ... but this alone does not qualify for 'our' psych/space subgenre.
While using the violin this also reminds me of INDUKTI in between when it comes to the heavier parts ...

oh, Shocked wow this a review nearly ...

P.S. checked you myspace site and saw you are from Arnheim? mysterious Smile

Wow, the Eclecticism of the music is staggering, not to speak of the quality. Good stuff. I'll ask the Eclectic team to evaluate the band for addition to the Eclectic Prog category. Thumbs Up

No votes so far, but you can see the status of Eclectic's voting chart in their thread... they're quite swamped at the moment.

I find it hard to write about my own band, mostly other people write better articles. But I collected some info in english...a lot of our material is in german:
