A supersonic progressive alternative rock band and we mean super. Reminding us of a cross between Papa Roach, Killswitch Engage and pod they really do sound the business. Vocally superb, Lyrically fantastic and the music is to die for.
Post-progressive alternative rock group, Lotus Effect was at the fore-front of the post-alt rock movement in Houston since 2006. What started out as an experimental progressive jam band quickly matured into a mainstream heavy rock group without shedding the progressive tendencies that came to characterize their Southern post-alternative sound.
Founded by classically trained, progressive drummer Gabriel Blog, with bassist Jason Malley and guitarist Rick Marquez, the current lineup features original member Rick Marquez, along with singer Dremaceo Giles, bassist Vincent Fink and drummer Richie Caldwell.
Lotus Effect’s sound has been described as the bastard son of Coheed and Cambria meets Incubus, while also drawing similarities to System of a Down, Rise Against, Alexis on Fire, and In Flames.
The band released their first EP “Rabbits & Royalty” in 2010, which propelled them to win 2010 Houston Press Music Award for “Best Rock” and “Best Rock 2011” from Revolver Underground Radio. The group has performed with an eclectic group of national acts from Nico Vega, Semi Precious Weapons, Kings X, Katatonia and more.
Their debut full-length album “Totality” is scheduled for release in 2014.
