BandRockNew Age

Caspian has risen from the ocean side obscurity of Boston's North Shore to become one of the major forces in the global instrumental rock scene and beyond. With a crushingly intense live show and the sophisticated nature of their recorded works, Caspian is poised to reach their widest audience yet.

Biography

When drowning in the appropriate sound, you find yourself achieving the same fundamental effects in your soul as coming up for air has on the body. Caspian is that appropriate sound. An instumental rock band from Beverly, Massachusetts formed in Autumn of 2003, these five young men have crafted a sound that is immediately riveting, emotionally devastating, and achingly passionate. Influenced in equal measure by the minimalist compositions of neo-classicists such as Arvo Part, to the full on rock crush of bands like Mono, Dredg and ISIS, topped off with the lush ambient stylings of artists like Eluvium, Stars of the Lid and Brain Eno, the music of Caspian is characterized by towering walls of sound, oceanic guitar work, viscious rhythmic elements and the basic core belief that their audience has an imagination worth trying to tap into and explore.

Take a walk around the bands home co-ordinates and you might find some clues. Tan stretches of sand and the infinite blue horizon of the Atlantic could be bigger influences here than anything else. The relentless seasonal cycle might explain the bands desire to cover everything from gentle and placid to furious and destructive, all while maintaining a unified musical sensibility, and a fierce sense of adventure. Live in an area like this and you're bound to create something hopeful, inspiring and downright massive. Caspian wants to bring you to places like this and to places we all havent seen yet. This is an adventure - You are invited.
