Bio - London based band Invasion are a massively heavy bass-less trio made up of two-thirds girls. They finalised their line-up in January 2007 and play short, fast, riff-based tracks with incredible vox to accompany a late 80's style extreme metal attack. And maybe sound like a space diva on acid fronting a young, stoned Metallica playing Sleep songs too fast (and too short).
Invasion have played Camden Crawl, Download and Latitude this year and are set to play Bloodstock and Hokaben Festivals. The band have just released their limited debut 7" EP 'Moongazer' on Run for Your Lives and recently recorded a brutal 13 track debut album in 4 days at Toerag Studios with James Shaw from Simian Mobile Disco. Following a 10" in 2008, their debut album is due in January 2009 from This is Music Ltd.
Accompanying INVASION are Brighton’s own DIAGONAL, who will be celebrating their debut album’s release on this week.
Diagonal are very much at the forefront of a new wave of bands inspired by and exploring the musical styling’s of the Prog Rock bands of the late 60’s/early70’s. Prog Rock was largely made unfashionable and obsolete by the bands that emerged during the first wave of Punk. Ironically Diagonal play their progressive music very much with a punk rock attitude and the kind of embattled revolutionary zeal that came to symbolise the punk movement as a whole.
The young seven-piece band share a general dissatisfaction with the pedestrian nature of the music industry and inspired by the more obscure records of early Prog’s golden period, set about forming their own contemporary prog rock band, a progressive prog rock band if you will. Initially there simply was not an outlet for the music they were playing. Recently however, there has been something of a sea change with London clubs such as Night Of The Long Swords, Skill Wizard and White Heat increasingly hosting more and more prog inspired bands with more and more people coming through the door wanting to hear something a bit more difficult and a bit more ‘way out’.
