Bio

Infidels of Sanity, affectionately called IOS or just “Infidels”, is a five-piece band hailing from Pune. Our genre, after a whirlwind of changes that started from Power Metal and Speed Metal, now has been given the name Hypnotic Progressive Rock (by the fans themselves) because of the deep psychedelic elements thrown into the progressive, deep lyrically themed songs. Like our name suggests, our music is different from the rest but still something that will appeal to all. We aren't afraid to use our technical knowledge to make our music more worthwhile to the listeners. Our songs are usually themed on complex human emotions which are evoked at their prone extremity.

Pune Mirror seemed to describe us best: "Infidels of Sanity play hypnotic progressive rock with an inkling of psychedelic sounds thrown into the mix. With trance inducing polyrhythms, and dizzying melodies the band plays esoteric music that grows on the listener. True to their name, Infidels of Sanity bend the very boundaries of music."

Our main influences have been Iron Maiden, Pain of Salvation,Porcupine Tree, Dream Theater, Rush, Shadow gallery, Opeth, Tool etc who are all thought provoking artists!
