Strange Melizma was founded in 2011 and played about 40 gigs. It was a long way to find our own style: we started with blues-rock, we tried some other genres, and now, you can listen to our first EP “The Road”, which is at the junction of Stoner and Southern, Alt and Art Rock genres.
In 2016-2017 the band took part in Emergenza festival with 700 other bands. During this event Vedya “the Weedpecker” joined the band as a second guitarist. Also, Paul Box, the current bassist joined SM and took each of the listener’s hearts with the unbreakable groove and handsome long smooth hair.
Andrew «Raven» Mitchell - vocals.
Kirill «Garuda» Fedoseev - drums
Boris «Britva» Korneev - 1st guitar
Daniel «The Weedpecker» Vedenin - 2nd guitar
Pavel «PaulBox» Korobitsyn - bass guitar
On 2017.9.11 the band, with great support of Andrey Shkolny, released the single called Song for the Peace, a small part of the second album.
“Song for the Peace is not just a new song from Strange Melizma. This is a call for the peace, for the unity”
It appears to be a new step of the band’s sound. Now we’re somewhere in between the incoming alternative and hard-rock avalanche and the overwhelming orange floods of prog. rock, which sembioticly lights everyone up and knocks’em down to the prehistorical call of Southern.
Over 40 concerts during five years including Yota space.
"14 place in the top 20 Russian bands in 2017" - Emergenza
"Russian best bass guitar player in 2017" - Emergenza
"This is true rock-n-roll"
"Very great basist - groove master"
"The great show"
Julien Delpy, vice-president of Emergenza festival.
"Very high technical level"
"Charisma and timbre of the singer’s voice reminded me of Joe Cocker"
Fabio Pirola, conductor of Saint Petersburg Philharmonia.
Also we have lots of great stuff like:
-A microphone that flashes in the misty darkness
-Outstanding microphone stand
-Back-vocal microphone stolen from karaoke by a drunk 2nd-guitarist
-Fap-fap white vintage semi-hollow body guitar that never stays in tune
-Bassist’s long hair, attractive as a blue-eyed blonde
So, If you are a fan of tough-muscle brutal hurshed vocals, your heart and soul lives in 70s, but within your mind you realize that music always changes and improves - you’re in a right place and time.
