Biography

MiRthkon are an American avant-garde rock band.
Under the lead of guitarist Wally Scharold, they play a mix of off-beat, aggressive and dry guitar riffs with complex, unusual compositions and woodwind lines (mostly saxophones, but also clarinets). Sometimes it sounds like a less hectic and less traversed version of Doctor Nerve, sometimes it reminds of the late Frank Zappa (although updated with very heavy guitars). German listeners will be reminded of the more off-beat moments of Panzerballett, where the funkiness and more offensive jazziness are replaced with reminiscences of the RIO school (a bit of jazz rock is present here and there with miRthkon, although with more edge and sneer).

    64 plays and I'm the top listener. This band is so criminally underrated.

    You know, in many ways it's sounds like if Dream Theater were actually progressive and left all those silly melodramatics behind, but then I realize that Dream Theater only exists off of a false pretense of "progressive" and melodrama lol. I guess they just sound like a more "alternative" Doctor Nerve. or perhaps a less "classical RIO" Doctor Nerve.

    Univers Zero + heavy metal + a bit of Zappa + dissonance + funky rhythms = miRthkon.

    Zappa + clarinets + avant-prog aura = MiRthkon. Great stuff, one of the best that I was fortunate to hear.
