THE DIVINE BAZE ORCHESTRA was founded by Oliver Eek (lead guitar, backing vocals) and Christian Eklof (drums, percussion) in 2003 immediately followed by Alexander Frisborg (lead vocals, mellotron, rhythm guitar) and Tobias Petterson (bass).
In the beginning the band's sound was similar to many of the heavy, fuzzy bands of the late 60's and early 70's, but as time passed, they were more and more drawn towards the experimental, psychedelic and jazz-oriented bands of the same era.
After a few years of intense giging in the space of Sweden Daniel Karlsson (organ, mellotron) joined THE DIVINE BAZE ORCHESTRA and the band entered a new sound dimension. The completed line-up now could also explore symphonic sound landscapes with the power of the organ behind them and it took some time to rearrange the old material to be suited to the new instruments.
The member's jazz, blues and classical background is to recover within retro references to raw heavy rock bands like URIAH HEEP and BLACK SABBATH but also to classic prog acts like YES or KING CRIMSON. Based on this traditional flirts the band conjures a fresh, vital and also experimental style with improvisation elements. ~progarchives.com
