Break Of Reality

Formed in 2003 at Rochester, New York's prestigious Eastman school of music, instrumental rock outfit Break of Reality employs three cellists and a percussionist. Taking a cue from kindred spirits like Rasputina and Apocalyptica, the quartet skillfully bridges the gap between rock, metal, pop, and classical, resulting in a sound that is both cinematic and primal. Based in New York City, the group, which includes Patrick Laird, Martin Torch-Ishii, Ivan Trevino, and Laura Metcalf, released its debut album, The Sound Between, in 2006. Spectrum of the Sky arrived in 2009, followed by Covers in 2012. ~ James Christopher Monger

They also prove you don't need a singer to make amazing music.

Spectrum of the Sky started playing while I was teaching in my classroom, and my students and I loved it... we had to pause the lesson to see what it was playing and give it a major thumbs up!!

Their music is great and reminds me of Dirty Three and Rachel's. Two of my old stand bys when I'm in a certain mood.
