Simeon Soul Charger with Maid Myriad (CD Release Party) One of the most enthralling debuts of the last years! (Rock Hard 02/2012)Friends of sophisticated but equally catchy rock music may enjoy a special treat on October 4, 2014 at The Kent Stage in Kent, Ohio. Simeon Soul Charger is the name of the psychedelic rock band from Akron, Ohio who have a strong reputation for their stirring live performances and whose band history resembles a road movie from a bygone era sometime in the 1960s: A Bavarian business traveler in New York accidentally came across a new and unknown band, whose music and live qualities raised his enthusiasm so that he urgently talked them into coming to Bavaria for a couple of shows. Finally the band mates decided to take the challenge, and without a penny in their pockets they set off from Ohio to Bavaria where they took up quarters in a remote old farmhouse.That was in 2011. Three years on, much has changed for Simeon Soul Charger. Their secluded artists residence became a creative workshop for several highly acclaimed releases, and its from there that they depart for extensive tours through Bavaria, Europe, and the US. The band have evolved artistically ever since.Their music has been described as a cinematic pastiche of 70's psychedelic, folk, blues, progressive, glam, and stoner rock with psychological, philosophical, and socio-political lyrical themes portrayed in a maelstrom of narration. Their nostalgic approach is not only surprisingly modern, but Simeon Soul Charger catapult the past into the present to experience timelessness. (Sddeutsche Zeitung 08/2013).Music magazines such as Rock Hard enthused about the debut album Meet Me in the Afterlife: Its delightful with a briskness that the majority of the rock music scene has lost completely, which is unfortunate. Youve got to LISTEN to this awesome album as often as possible, and fast! (RH 02/2012). Legacy magazine recognizes the pieces of composition that stand out pleasantly against the predictable uniformity of the genre, a never fraying cornucopia of ideas and therefore, a must. With their conceptual album Harmony Square Simeon Soul Charger finally delivered their best album to date, providing orchestral rock feeling that needs not fear a comparison with Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, or Queen, but always in their own distinctive voice.Thus expectations for their upcoming 2014 album are high, and a little taste is given at any of the current shows. On October 4, 2014 you may expect sophisticated music that combines substance and musical humor with high entertainment value and power this bands unique live energy irresistibly charges your soul.
