There's no lack of exceptionally gifted and talented musicians, producers and organizers, composers, improvisers both professionals and amateurs, but.... We felt that our planet was drenched by 2/4 or 4/4 beat. You can hear it in jazz, classical, pop, folk music, blues, rock etc. What ever genre we listen to, counted the four or eight beat. That's why we wanted to do something completely different. We thought that our music could bring a new approach. The result became A progressive musical group established in September 2006 by Bjorn Egelius bass, Leif Fredriksson on drums and Tobbe Johansson playing guitar.
We in therhythmisodd are influenced by all the good and fantastic musicians we earlier in life has both played with or listened to. Many of the great giants who lived before us has left recordings that we all can enjoy and get inspired by. Many have already left us, but new fantastic talented and gifted persons gets born every day, we thank you for that.
It makes the music live.
After many listens to Subway, I can honestly that the track is amazing, and fits my musical tastes perfectly. The musicianship is top-notch, and I love the pounding bass...very reminiscent of John Wetton-era King Crimson. The bellowed vocals add a nice human feel to the track. The guitar is wild, reminding me of Robert Fripp-meets-Frank Zappa-meets-Tim Smith-meets-Jimi Hendrix. Jazz-fusion is one of my favorite genres, and that is very present in Subway. And I definitely can't forget the powerful drums, bringing to mind Billy Cobham and Bill Bruford with a slight modern feel. The mid-section is great and sounds a bit like improvisation, which I love. I love how you guys manage to keep such a strong groove going for over 13 minutes; very nice indeed! Even the production quality is pretty good here. Congratulations on such a powerful piece of music! Well done, Well done - Jordan Bolen
Johanson's guitar playing becomes reminiscent of a winding snake charmer, freaking out on a cobra in a bohemian bazaar somewhere in the far reaches of the Middle East. - Sasha M Lee
This is a pure unadulterated balls-to-the-wall, throw-the- hammer-down guitar driven sound supplemented by an awesome rhythm section. Highly recommended. --The Laser's Edge
From Nowhere to Eternity is an unabashedly unconstrained debut from a group that takes a retro vibe and updates it for the new millennium. --John Kelman
