Cryptic Vision

Cryptic Vision


We're a progressive rock band influenced by Yes, Kansas, Dream Theater, early Genesis, Rush, Spock's Beard. Our music is bombastic and majestic, with subtle nuances to create strong dynamics. Epic songs, strong soloists and multi-part vocals.


In an era that has seemingly honed itself to celebrate music with angry, depressing and even violent imagery and lyrics, Cryptic Vision is a breath of fresh air filled with positive energy, meaningful lyrics, soaring melodies, lush harmonies and expansive arrangements written to fully capture the imagination.

As professionals in the music business for several decades, the members of Cryptic Vision came together with one goal: Create amazing music from their hearts to yours.
