Upsilon Acrux is an instrumental quintet (Double Drummer+duo Guitarists + Rhodes/Sax). Their music is generally very intense, loud, hard-hitting and unbelivably virtuosic. Upsilon Acrux's music is demanding on many levels, but mostly it demands that you listen to it a number of times before forming an opinion, because only after you've gotten familiar with it can you get past the sheer complexity and onslaught of it all and hear the amazing musicality of what they are doing. This combination of blazingly fast, interwoven musical lines delivered at blinding speed mixed with their unique melodic sense makes Upsilon's music instantly recognizable.
Alex's Head is polystylistic avant-garde, experimental rock group centered around the compositions of bassist Kellen Mills, Drummer Nic Barnes and the new addition to the group guitarist Kenny Stanger. Dabbling in everything from rock, metal, jazz, avant-grade, classical, progressive and experimental music, Alex's Head has self-released two full-length studio albums, with their third studio album Künstler Scheiße (to be released by RAIG records), two EPs, a live album, and an album of spontaneous live improvisations.
The band's current live line-up is:
Kellen Mills (bass), Nic Barnes (drums, percussion), Kenny Stanger (guitar), Matt Kennon (tenor-sax), Roberto Vicchio (trumpet), Davide Piersanti (trombone).
