Fractal were formed in San Jose California in 2000, playing "music to tap your brain to" their complex and intense music is original, diverse and hard to categorize. The most common comparisons from reviewers are King Crimson, Radiohead, Rush, Yes, Genesis and Pink Floyd, although Fractal do not sound like classic progressive rock.
Fractal bring you intricate rhythms and lyrical guitar solos, and the contrast between Josh Friedman's pure vocals and Jim Mallonee's raw bluesy singing. The music is deeply layered and rewards repeated listening.
