Following the success of debut album ‘Highly Refined Pirates’ forward-thinking guitar gymnastics and ‘Menos El Oso’s groundbreaking glitch rock, Seattle’s premier pop revisionists Minus The Bear dug into some of rock music’s most ostentatious years for inspiration for their 2007 album, ‘Planet Of Ice’. The title alone conjures images of Yes’ ‘Relayer’ album art and the influence of the elder statesmen’s symphonic scope can be felt throughout ‘Planet of Ice’s lush and intricate arrangements. One can hear the band channel the ominous instrumental interplay of ‘The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway’-era Genesis on ‘Dr. L’Ling’, the deceptively savvy musicianship and pristine production of Steely Dan on ‘White Mystery’ and the tightrope walk between ethereal space and pre-metal riffage of Pink Floyd’s ‘Echoes’ on ‘Lotus’. Not that Minus The Bear completely abandoned their earlier style – elements of ‘Menos El Oso’s sample- driven technique can be heard on the lead single ‘Knights’ but the heart of the song ultimately belongs to the haunting Fripp-esque guitar lines spliced between verses. After being out of print on record since 2010, Suicide Squeeze are proud to reintroduce Planet of Ice’s creative marriage of classic motifs and modern musical wizardry with a vinyl remaster courtesy of Bernie Grundman. PS: Minus The Bear are an emo band.
