Despite building their reputation as a progressive rock band, Haze have always drawn on a wide variety of influences, ranging from pop, rock, folk, metal, meandering psychedelic jams to tightly structured prog epics. Formed in Sheffield in the late 1970s by brothers Chris & Paul McMahon, they established their reputation as one of the hardest working underground bands of the ‘80s. Despite disbanding in 1988, the band reformed ten years later and have continued to perform regularly ever since, including weekly live-streamed concerts during Lockdown. Their latest studio album, Back to the Bones, is probably their heaviest-sounding release and follows a definite back to their roots direction. It’s also their fastest-selling album to date, proving that Haze’s legendary reputation is richly deserved.
Trilogy’s sound combines a generous helping of heavy rock influences with the quirky time signatures and virtuoso musicianship that remain the cornerstones of true prog. Vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Paul Dennis moves effortlessly between guitar, keyboards and bass pedals to create a dense and multi- layered backing for their songs, supported by intricately-woven bass and drums. Only three men on stage but Trilogy punch way above their weight!
2023 marks Trilogy’s 40th anniversary as a band and after a long hiatus they are celebrating this milestone with a series of gigs and a trio of CD releases, driven entirely by popular demand - the amazing fan response to the creation of their Facebook page and YouTube channel led to a band reunion, with followers both old and new eager to see the band onstage again.
