Formed back in 1997 with an idea to mix progressive rock, doom metal and 70's-inspired psychedelic rock, Subterranean Masquerade creates music with that edge of extreme metal and the loose atmosphere of Pink Floyd and Iron butterfly. While admittedly not such a pioneering idea on its own, the vision of freeing metal music from genre boundaries, wrapped by grand production is what often make the band's music sound like a carnival of different colors and scents... a masquerade!
Now, 2017, Subterranean Masquerade has stepped it all up several notches. The new amazing full length, "Vagabond", mixed by Christer Andre Cederberg (Anathema, Tristania, Circus Maximus) and mastered by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street studio, combines all the aspects that one has come to love and expect from this band, and blends them with multiple new influences. Imagine what would happen should such bands as Pink Floyd, Dream Theater, Fleetwood Mac, Jethro Tull, Opeth, In The Woods, King Crimson, and David Bowie all get together in one room - perhaps this is what it would sound like?
