Maxwell's Demon is a progressive rock band dedicated to sophisticated composition and high quality production in recordings. Compositions are primarily influenced by 20th century 'art' music for the complex rhythmic ideas found there, and nontonal harmony. Maxwell's Demon is still a rock band, however, inspired by 'new' progressive rock like Änglagård, Univers Zero, and Anekdoten as well as the usual collection of 'old' stuff like King Crimson, Gentle Giant, Genesis, and Rush. Prometheus, our first release, is a single thirty nine minute piece complete with a cohesive large scale formal structure, extensive development of thematic material, and a diverse progression of musical textures required to keep a work of this length interesting. In fact, no material in Prometheus is ever repeated verbatim. Every presentation of an idea is unique, often a development of a previously introduced theme. The result is an album that sounds good on the first presentation, yet becomes even more interesting and rewarding with repeated listenings. Please see our MySpace site for longer samples of Prometheus. Thanks!
