Deep Thought - A progressive rock adventure Sell your music everywhere

Deep Thought

Deep Thought is a five piece band from the Basel area in the Northwest of Switzerland. They play sophisticated Progressive Rock Music and would like to raise interest among a growing audience for this genre that is somewhat neglected by the general public in Switzerland.

"Every song is a work of art", says an article about the band in the local paper "Baslerstab" in the edition of January 20, 2003. Further on, the article reads:

[...] What the five guys conjure up is not meant for the big mass, or as [Marcel] Oehler says: "We do not produce easy-listening-music". At times multi-layered and fat, other times calm and stirring, their songs are a true refuge from the sludgy radio broadcast pap. [...]

Deep Thought take a little after the former Genesis and Marillion or Arena and Dream Theater, who have a found and still find a loyal fan base throughout the world. The repertoire of Deep Thought, however, consists exclusively of their own compositions, and in the same way as the mentioned bands developed their unmistakable style, Deep Thought play Progressive Rock in their own, unique way.

October 2002 saw the first official cd release "somewhere in the dark" by the band, distributed by the Swiss record label "Galileo Records". Reviewers all over the world said the following about the record ("Progressive Corner of Switzerland"):

[...] Deep Thought succeeded in producing an interesting debut album entitled "somewhere in the dark", that does not need to shy the foreign competition. [...] Deep Thought are in any case one of the best prog-bands in Switzerland. [...]

The author from the Uzbek Progressive Rock Web Site "ProgressoR":

[...] Frankly, I am very much impressed with most of the contents of this cd and find it one of the strongest and most interesting albums of Neo Progressive that I‘ve heard for the last three years, at least. [...]

And a critic of the "European Progressive Rock Reviews" from Great Britain:

[...] As far as this new album goes, Deep Thought can now stand on a higher platform and spread their wings to all parts of Europe which has a loyal fan base for progressive music. [...]

After over two years of working on that cd, Deep Thought now concentrate on writing and recording a new album that promises to be even more progressive.

Deep Thought is also searching for gig offers (festivals, clubs, other venues), in order to be able to present themselves to a broader public and raise the interest in Progressive Rock Music in Switzerland and Europe.
