My rock supergroup

For a long time, I've been thinking on which names from the rock and progressive rock/metal world would I join to make a super awesome band. There are already some bands on that vein like Transatlantic and Liquid Tension just to name a few. As a guideline, I decided not to repeat members of a band to keep it more interesting and somewhat more varied.

The hardest part of this process was to come by the drum and keyboard players. Incidentally, my selection is very vocal oriented. That's something I really appreciate in bands like Pain of Salvation.

Mariusz Duda (Riverside): Bass and vocals. You can hear his nice bass lines all over in Riverside, along to his moody voice.

Anneke van Girsenbergen (The Gathering, Solo): Vocals and guitar. Just a lovely woman with a very characteristic voice tone and high versatility as exemplified from her involvements in The Gathering, Ayreon, duets in Within Temptation and her own work.

Daniel Glindenlöw (Pain of Salvation): Guitar and vocals. Masterful composition, multi-instrumentalist and a very versatile and emotive voice.

Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree): Drums. Just go and hear to Porcupine Tree's Sounds of Muzak from the In Absentia album.

Derek Sherinian (Planet X, Black Country Communion, Dream Theater, Solo): Keyboards. A touch of psychedelia and very atmospheric sounds, just perfect to create atmosphere accompanying the three voices. Besides is a good showman.


And hope hat someone agrees with me.
