Subject: Elektryk Bestia - Avant Garde/Experimental
Date Posted: September 21 2010 at 19:34
Hello, we are Elektryk Bestia. We have been making music for several years now and we play progressive rock although many people have classified our music in various subcategories such as Avante Garde, Experimental, Psychedelic, Neo Prog and several others. Mainly, we enjoy to compose music that is much different than the typical mainstream tunes you hear today. This is the reason that Elektryk Bestia came together in the first place. We hope our music invites listeners so that every person can create their own visual or interpretation of the song.  We invite you to listen to us at the link below! Thanks so much for your time!
 
Best Regards, Elektryk Bestia

This band is a definate candidate for addition to the site. I've given their EP several listens and I get a very strong sense of classic (not the bad modern) gothic rock, with some avant sounds.

Anyone who has listened to some of the material from Devil Doll might hear a similarity in this.
 
Hopefully these guys will be added very soon!

Electryk Bestia, perhaps you should personally message a few of the more active users on the site and ask them if they would be able to give the music a listen and give their support to the addition. People are much more likely to check it out if you give them a personalized message!

Which subgenre do you think would be the best place for your music?

Hello SaltyJon! Thanks for your response! In terms of subcategory if I had to pick one I would say Experimental or possibly RIO/Avant for us. We have had alot of different opinions on what our subgenre may be although if I had to pick I would pick those. Thanks again, appreciate your response SaltyJon!
 
Best Regards,
Elektryk Bestia..

Friendly, kaleidoscopic, mind-expanding package in your flowergarden ... an excellent world!

Sooner or later you'll be approved ... please do not be hasty, wait for a moment. Wink

Avant team evaluated Elektryk Bestia's samples and we think possibly avant isn't best place for them. Now band is under evaluation by Crossover Team

Hmm...ok. Thanks for the update Slava! We're not sure exactly ourselves what subgenre our music may fall into exactly. It will be interesting to see where we are placed. If anyone has any suggestions for any other subgenres for our music, feel free to mention them!
 
Thanks alot!
Regards..

Hi, to be honest, we in Crossover team are quite puzzled by your music. So far, I and Chris S voted MOVE to Eclectic. As Crossover usually means "with mainstream elements", your music will be better in Eclectic.

But it's interesting music and my opinion is that you should be here.

Eclectic may be their place I consider too. Smile

I will say after looking up the exact definition of eclectic on progarchives this does seem like it may possibly fit our sound. I'm curious to see what the eclectic reviewers think...

^ The point is that even we would want to, we cannot include you, if you don't fit in our genre. Well, we can stretch the boundaries a little bit, or other teams can, but not too much.

RIO / Avant Team's evaluation

Guess it's very tough to classify you, but simultaneously it can be said you have various progressive essence I think.

"MOVE" sign means "You're definitely progressive, but may not be fit for the subgenre". So please do not be hasty, let us take more time to evaluate you.

Eclectic could be the place for you. I would support your move there. So, I do, I support :-)

I'd probably go with Avant... It's not necessarily super avant, but it's definately got the 'weird' vibe to it.

Date Posted: October 07 2010 at 17:29
^ That's possibility too Conor. And I wouldn't be exactly against such decision, but you know, it was moved.

No problem. Smile One more question, though: are you still unsigned?

Although we are unsigned we do have a 5 song CD available for sale on our webpage. If anybody here would like a copy to do a review for us or if it would make it easier to add us by having a copy of it, we will send you a copy free. Thanks and best regards...

Sorry guys, but our policy is not to add unsigned bands. I see you have one EP in your production, but even your bigcartel page states it's a demo. (and if the songs are the same as on your myspace page, frankly they also sound as a demo). Nothing wrong with that: we'll wait for an official release.

Apart from that, I do believe your music could be described as eclectic prog.
