Formed in 2007, Mythology is a 3-piece Progressive Rock band from West Milford, NJ with a force and tenacity that is rarely seen in modern bands. Culling influences from the greatest artists of yesteryear, they certainly know how to turn heads with each performance. Elements of Jazz, Hard Rock, Blues, Heavy Metal, Classical, and Cinema all come together in a cohesive and digestible manner. Often compared with the likes of Frank Zappa, King Crimson, Yes, Mahavishnu Orchestra, and Rush, Mythology is able to satisfy listeners of all backgrounds with their unique brand of songwriting. Strict, daring Composition meets wide-open Improvisation in the Mythology world.

Having opened for such prestigious artists as Yes, Peter Frampton, Project/Object, Consider The Source, and Kung Fu, Mythology has had some pretty amazing moments in its 11 year history. And even still, after all those years, it all comes down to the music! Brynen Sosa’s wild Guitar pyrotechnics and eclectic Vocal are nothing short of unique, adventurous, and comedic. Dane Carmichael’s thumping Bass grooves are tastefully employed, yet wild and lightning fast. Jordan Morrissey’s manic Drum patterns are the fuel of the Mythology fire. Mythology’s dedication to their respective instruments is apparent with each listen. However, they are also not afraid to add a metric ton of Humor within their Lyrics to keep the audience chuckling all the while! Being heavily influenced by Satirists such as Jonathan Swift, Tom Lehrer, and William S. Burroughs, Social Commentary and Goofball Comedy is a huge part of what Mythology has to say.

Their brand new 4th studio album “All The Planets Have Aligned” is a tour de force that takes the listener on a journey through several different emotions and dynamics. A Musical rollercoaster of sorts. By it’s end, the listener will most likely be out of breath! So brace yourselves, here comes Mythology!

“A real great thing going on! A modern type of Jazz!” – Rusty Paul

“You wanna see a great band? Check out Mythology, I’m really impressed! They really throw down!” – Ray White (Former Zappa Vocalist/Guitarist)

“The Music is catchy, energetic, experimental, melodic, atmospheric, funky, and diverse with lots of character… The musicianship is thrilling throughout the album!” – Nicky Baldrian (Fireworks Magazine, UK)

“’All The Planets Have Aligned’ is a gloriously rewarding workout, where the album as a whole stands shoulder to shoulder with the sum of its sizable parts…” – Geoff Wootton (Powerplay Magazine, UK)
