"Smooth Progression"

IOS started off by playing at college festivals,notably gigs at Symbiosis and VIT. The group has also been featured in one of Channel V's shows School of Cool.
Influences range from jazz,blues,progressive rock to even Mozart! Says Prateek Bhaduri,the vocalist, "We feel the current music scene is improving,but the sound you hear is rather similar. This is one of the reasons why we want to experiment with our music." Saket Rao,the drummer adds, "Being a good band is not just about getting to perform at good shows,its also about reinventing and rediscovering yourself."
Like other bands and artistes,IOS makes use of social networking sites like Facebook to highlight themselves. "We'd be lying if we said exposure didnt matter and we have a long way to go as band and to get there we need to be heard", says bass guitarist Milind Rojatkar.
Besides,IOS is also planning to cut an album by the end of this year. - Times of India


"Metal Tones"

“Infidels of Sanity play hypnotic prog 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 that reminds listeners of Porcupine Tree and Blackfield.” - Pune Mirror

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!
