Thomas Graef – Vocals / Bass

Thomas Graef. Bass player since the 80s.
Musical experience from numerous bands.

From Heavy Metal in the 80’s, to Pop in the 90’s, 2000’s Blues Rock and
Progressive Rock music. Here I have now found my home port.

Stage experience   for over 30 years ;-O
Completed training   Never
Experienced a lot   Definitely
With heart and soul at it   Constantly
Pleasure in own compositions   Always and on until eternity

I like to listen to music a lot. Especially if it is “handmade”. Techno beats and music from a can, I can not get much out of it. Here I miss the “warmth” and the personality. (Sorry to all techno fans. I love you anyway).

Writing lyrics, vocal lines and musical arrangements is where my passion lies.
The good cooperation within the band structure should be characterized by friendship and common innovation.

The last recorded concept album (Mihrax) took a whole two years. Haven’t regretted a minute working on it. On the contrary. All the evenings until the wee hours of the morning, combined with blatant sugar consumption and new musical challenges have shown us that many things are possible.
But after this time with endless recordings and a lot of innovative work from all involved, it’s time to return to the stage and play the album live.

Prog rock is a challenge that doesn’t appeal to many. Especially in this day and age of the new club scene.
But to all the others left who would like to experience their rock music loud, dirty and live, we turn to you.
Stay as you are and don’t get bent!
