What is now once was just a little spark and has ignited into fire that cannot and will not be contained. Pralaya was years in the making but happened years back when Rick, John and Greg jammed out a couple times a month. When they decided to get a monthly studio, things soon changed and a chemistry like no other occurred. They would improv first and then take parts of certain riffs and loop them to evolve it further. It became second nature to them to just create out of thin air. Reading each others moves and putting depth to those elements made them a force to be reckoned with. They would be creating music for years before getting the singer they always needed and hoped for. Like a breath of fresh air Alex Knales came into the picture out of nowhere. He had moved from Miami to pursue his dream and find like minded individuals that would express the same type of feelings and emotion through organic creativity. This sparked the name PRALAYA which simply put means an intense transformation; that was exactly what was about to happen when these 4 guys got together. Recording MATTER OF TIME their new Record set to release in the winter of this year is a melting pot of groove, melody, ambience and aggression at its finest. Each member of the band brings his own creativity to the project forging one sonic explosion and atmosphere that will leave you entranced and wanting more. Its complexities are matched by it’s simplicity. Look out for this quartet because they are moving fast!
PRALAYA is Alex Knales (Vox), Jon Connolly (Bass), Greg Telfeian (Drums), Rick Whitley (Guitars)
