Just Pure (LP, 2009)



General Information
Geminus is a Progressive Hard Rock band from Berlin which exists approx. since 2004. The band was founded by the twin brothers Lubo and Niki Indjov. In their early days they performed on various stages together with guest’s musicians under the name “Geminus” - the Latin word for twins.
Stylistically the songs of Geminus cover a very wide spectrum of genres. Although different styles are combined in single songs most of them are still rooted in Hard Rock / Heavy Rock. Concurrently they are arranged rather versatile and require multiple listening to discover every facet.

Hard, insistent riffs and vocal melodies with catchy tune character completed by virtuosic arranged solo parts of guitar and keyboard, powerful beats and drum fills, as well as funky and heavy bass grooves form the musical appearance of Geminus.

Influence & Style
Main influences of the band are primarily Deep Purple and Dream Theater. All of the four musicians were independently from one another oriented on members of the two bands and you recognize stylistically certain fusions in Geminus’ music of DP and DT. Over the years the musicians developed their own styles and expressions in music.
Especially Niki was highly influenced by a wide range of styles. His ambition was inflamed by the guitar playing of Ritchie Blackmore (in former times member of Deep Purple). Other influences are Steve Morse, Steve Vai, Guthrie Govan, Joe Satriani, Doug Aldrich, John Petrucci, Yngwie Malmsteen, Al Di Meola, John Mclaughlin, Paco De Lucia.

Lubo’s unique style originates from Groove-Jazz, Funk, Latin and Prog Rock. He was influenced by greats such as Marcus Miller, Jaco Pastorius, Victor Wooten, Larry Graham, Stanley Clark, Marco Mendoza and John Myung.

Phil Jay was for a long period greatly influenced by the Hammond player maestro Jon Lord, as well as his past music teacher the Berlin jazz pianist Bernd Spanier. Furthermore influences were Herbie Hancock, Jimmy Smith, Brian Auger, Joe Zawinul and particularly Dream Theater keyboarder Jordan Rudess.

Also Philipp Schwab who started playing drums at the age of five was highly influenced at the time of his commencement by his past music teacher Thomas Kohlmetz as well as the Deep Purple drummer Ian Paice. To date a wide range of drummers were enormous inspirations for him like Charly Antolini, Mike Mangini, Lars Ulrich and particularly Mike Portnoy.

Geminus are trying to create a very special show for each concert. It's highly important to let the audience feel the power and energy coming from the stage... So the band members are changing their instruments or guitars are being balanced in a very hazardous way during the shows! Let your ears and eyes be the judge and visit one of our concerts
