It’s not very often that a local band transcends genres effortlessly. Often times a band seems to sound like a mini offspring of a band you'll hear on the radio. Tripmynd has managed to cross melodic and metal in a way quite different from their musical predecessors. One moment you may hear them cranking out a massive metal riff, and the next they could be rocking an anti-ballad. The end result is something you’ll have to hear to believe.
Tripmynd was formed in early 2007 with the desire to create a high energy sound and get away from the "repetitive" music often heard in the local Boston scene. The band started with old friends Andy Antczak & Marc Pugliese reuniting after their former "Instill" project, years earlier. Upon plugging in & playing for the first time in years, they knew they found something different. After numerous drum auditions the two finally found a permanent musician, Chuck Harnden. Chuck’s jazzy fast paced style and metronome-like beats made him an easy choice. The final piece of the puzzle was placed when incredible vocalist Joe B, of the local hard rock heavyweight Visional, auditioned and was gladly accepted into the fold.
With the lineup solidified, the writing process sped up, and within no time the first dozen songs for Tripmynd’s freshman release were completed. The band continues to turn heads when playing venues & leaves an impression in people’s minds. Whether it is the beautiful melodies of the anti-ballad “Sunless” or the searing shred riffs of “Insurmountable”, Tripmynd is starting to make their mark on the local music scene. The bands highly anticipated first full length CD is due out late fall/early winter. They plan on touring in support of the disc in 2008 & hope to spread the word of what Tripmynd is all about. Without fans there is no music, and they never forget that!!
