ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Style

Prismas sound isn't only progressive-rock. They love working on new ideas and letting these ideas flow into their songs.

The songs have a lot of technical finesses, psychedelic, hypnotic melodies, but they always keep their toughness. Their different influences and their presence can capture anyone.

The compact and powerful connection between the musicians and the striking songwriting are the bands trademarks.


Biography

After a half a year of working intensively with each other,
Prisma gave their first concert in autumn 2002. The feedback was very positive.

They tried competing in different music-contests. At the end of 2003 Prisma won a newcomer-bandcontest in Baden, Switzerland. They were competing against 40 other bands. A lot of magazines published the happening which made them more famous in that area.
They ended up going to Tuzla (Bosnia) to give a concert.
At a lot of different open-airs they were able to work
intensively on their presence. Their fanconnections expanded.

The songmaterial that they worked on for the last two years,
turned out to be the first longplayer in year 2006.
The debutalbum called Collusion includes 12 songs and was
recorded and mixed by the band itself. They worked with musicians from the opera in Zürich, who gave some songs a special touch.
Howie Weinberg mastered the CD in New York. He's worked with
names like Mars Volta, Smashing Pumpkins and The Young Gods.

There's no doubt that the quartet from Aargau is a breathtaking live-band. They've been able to prove that to their fans at concerts where they played before Gotthard, Waltari, Atomic Bitchwax, Favez and other bands.

Live they work with a formation called "Pixel Punx". They work on the creative visual part on stage, which makes the live-act even more interesting.

The songmaterial that they worked on for the last two years, turned out to be the first longplayer in year 2006. They worked with musicians from the opera in Zürich, who gave some songs a special touch. There's no doubt that the quartet from Aargau is a breathtaking live-band. They've been able to prove that to their fans at concerts where they played before "Gotthard", "Waltari", "Atomic Bitchwax", "Favez" and other bands. Live they work with a formation called "Pixel Punx". They work on the creative visual part on stage, which makes the live-act even more interesting. Prisma are a new classic "Progressive Metal" sensation hailing from "Aargau", with their music being also, a mix of "Metal" and "Progressive Rock", where they have a rich instrumentation that only few bands can produce today. Their compositions feature a perfect instrumental combination, the singer has a vibrant voice with a wide range of tones, dynamic and powerful guitars solos in a range of many styles, including a collection of vibrants riffs, fantastic bass lines, and an amazing rhythm section with some aggressive moments into the songs. In fact, this is another example of a brilliant Prog Metal band that appears in the Prog Metal scene. Any fans of "Pain Of Salvation", "Tool", "Opeth", "A Perfect Circle" and "Dream Theater" will be able to enjoy Prisma. "Collusion" is Prisma´s professional debut album. It includes 12 songs, which the band´s members recorded and mixed themselves. Recorded by Valentin Grendelmeier. Mastering AT Masterdisk NY (Howie Weinberg). Howie Weinberg mastered the CD in New York. He's worked with names like "Mars Volta", "Smashing Pumpkins" and "The Young Gods". With this CD Prisma hopes to find an ideal music-distributor. At first, you must listen the songs such as "Feeling of Guiltiness", "Over Bodies and Cases", "Inner Circulation", "Glide In" and "Perseverance", but, in my opinion, "Head Trip", "Maslow", "Normal State" and "Sield Land" are the most powerful songs on the album. The main musicians on this band are: Michael Luginbuehl - Vocals and Percussion, Valentin Grendelmeier - Guitar and Vocals, Marc Muellhaupt Bass and Andi Wettstein - Drums. Brilliant and indispensable work, highly recommendable...(Comments by Carlos Vaz)

Murat Batmaz / Sea of Tranquility


For a self-released debut, Collusion is a great start for Prisma. Though some will inevitably lambast them for sounding too similar to Tool -- and they may have a point -- I doubt the band would deny being inspired by Tool or Keenan's other project A Perfect Circle. On the contrary, they might be proud that so many people actually liken them to one of the greatest bands around. From the heavy album opener "Paragon" to the rhythmically dense "Feeling of Guiltiness", complete with nifty acoustic guitars and shattering electric riffs; to the unexpectedly melodic "Sield Land", this album serves its purpose.
