For those who think modern progressive rock revolves around England's Muse, here's Germany's The Intersphere, and their latest Interspheres >< Atmospheres. The Intersphere is getting a greater push in North America thanks to US based ProgRock Records. The emphasis is well-deserved. The Intersphere may have some traditional roots, but this is certainly the face of modern melodic prog rock.
Defining The Intersphere's style is like trying to catch a snowflake on your tongue. It's elusive. While not totally accessible, in the 'pop' sense, The Intersphere definitely draws you in with their pleasurable eclecticism. Of note are Right Through Me, Ghostwriter, and cleverly titled I Have a Place for You on Google Earth. But The Intersphere give you some serious rock on Early Bird. Modernity and a suspicious dance beat surface on Sate of the Divine. Divergence, creativity, and a peculiar amount of irrational congruency (think that one through) make The Intersphere's Interspheres Atmospheres a significant pleasure. Prepare to be confused, challenged, but ultimately entertained. Recommended.
