Spheric Universe Experience is a progressive metal band originating from France 1999, comparable to Dream Theater in music style. They're not afraid to throw down bizzare time signatures and complicated vocals, percussion lines, guitar riffs and even keyboard melodies.
The band itself didn't take on that name until a split in 2003, leaving the guitarist Vince Benaim, bassist John Brai and keyboardist Fred Colombo. They played and composed for 8 months before having a complete album to record - as they lacked a vocalist, Franck Garcia stepped in to do it, and because of his impressive results despite only a few days of preparation he decided to join the band. The demo album, "The Burning Box", was picked up and got the band a management deal.
Since then the band has released Mental Torments (March 2005), Anima (April 2007) and Unreal (April 2009), each one an odyssey of progressive metal. They have another album in the works for Spring 2011. Their next live performance is in Paris, France at February 12th 2011 at the Div. Play Being on ThirdStyle!
