A TORN MIND is a 4-piece melodic prog rock band based in central Scotland, UK.

Fusing heavy and melodic styles, the band create fresh and powerful music with a strong contemporary progressive edge.

A Torn Mind's debut EP, 'Barriers' (2010) is an entirely self-produced effort, recorded and mixed by the band themselves. Combining the classic styling’s of Genesis and Rush with influence from 'current' bands such as The Mars Volta, Dream Theater, Karnivool and Thrice, the sound of A Torn Mind is a unique, modern angle on prog rock that fuses tight musicianship with an ambitious and melodic approach to songwriting.


Praise for 'Barriers':


"Ambitious and mature musically while displaying both easy accessibility and genuine depth... A Torn Mind have a considerable amount to commend them and display significant promise" - Classic Rock Presents Prog

"They create some brilliantly constructed progressive songs and show that they have the potential to be something truly great" - Powerplay Magazine

"Those seeking genuine new contenders in the field of progressive rock should be in raptures over A Torn Mind" - Mass Movement Magazine

“A band alive with discovery, with desire, with possibility.” - Organ Magazine
