From http://www.myspace.com/crayonphase

"Crayon Phase was born as a side project by Frank Wendel in the beginning of 2008. Before that, Frank played drums and/or keyboards in different (Prog) bands like Lothlorien, Kampai, Kaleido and Sabatronic Fuzz. After the first songs were succesfully recorded, Frank started searching for new band members to complete the album with real guitars and drums. In the end of 2008, Wolfgang Bähr joined the band first and in the beginning of 2009 Arne Gröschel joined the band, too. Both members have been played together by "Cloud About Mercury", which was another Progressive Rock project in the past. After the band split up, Wolfgang played in a Prog band called "InVertigo" (formerly known as "Vertigo") and Arne started playing in bands called "Classic Night Band" and "Kramer" till today. In march 2010, Frank Brommer joined the band as the new keboarder. In the past Frank played in different bands and, for example, in a Progressive Rock band called "Spellbound". With that band he also has published one album. At last, Peter Damm completed the band in 2012. Some of his last musical stations were "Blizzard", "Xxaron" and "Surgeon"

The music can be described as emotional, melodic, innovative and modern Progressive Rock. For more information about the band and the status of their songs check out the official website:

Spotify and Deezer cannot be used in my nation sadly. Cry

A six-minute sampler is too short for me, sounds like a decent candidate though. Unhappy

Yes, this was an easy evaluation judging from the comments in the Neo team thread. There are only three guys in the Neo team though, and two of them at least have quite pressing work and other real life commitments at the moment, so a little bit of patience will be needed regarding the final addition.
