Music from Oakland Hard Rockers Stimuli

STIMULI is an Oakland, California rock band formed by vocalist Kris Nova, guitarist Jimmy Tomahawk, drummer Cole Andrew and bassist Tai Hake. After forming in 2013, STIMULI entered the legendary Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, California to begin tracking their debut EP.

Released on May 13th 2014, the 6 track debut effort exemplifies the breadth and depth of each members affinity for the hard rock of Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, the seething grunge of Soundgarden and Alice in Chains as well as the complex progressive rock of King Crimson and Rush. The sum of these influences often results in comparisons of STIMULI to contemporary prog-rock torch bearers such as Porcupine Tree, Tool and Karnivool.

STIMULI’s music is ambitious enough to push musical boundaries in the spirit of the “Progressive”, unusual enough to be an “Alternative”, dense and edgy enough to be “Hard Rock” yet still emotive, dynamic and thought provoking.
