The band is formed by guitarist Guthrie Govan, bassist Bryan Beller and dynamic drummer Marco Minnemann. Govan has been defined as “arguably the hottest guitarist on the international music scene today, and his 2006 solo album Erotic Cakes was widely recognized as an instant classic”. Bryan Beller has instead played with the likes of Steve Vai and Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa) while Marco Minnemann has played with everyone from Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) and Adrian Belew (Zappa, King Crimson) to technical death metal specialists Necrophagist. He’s looked upon by fans and peers as one of the most gifted drummers around. So talented is Minnemann that he was once also chosen by the group Dream Theater to sit in for their historic drummer, Mike Portnoy.
Their particular brand of music goes from prog to metal to jazz and to progressive rock, something to a certain degree reminiscent of Canada’s great veterans of the genre, Rush.
