Dragonwyck - Prog Psych Rock
Dragonwyck biography: ( http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=2958 )
This little known group was formed in 1968 in Cleveland, United States, first under a name SUNRISE. Later in 1969 they changes as DRAGONWYCK, and their musical style moved towards progressive rock. Their first album was released in 1970 for only 85 copies, as a demo LP. Musically they combine the elements of both British and American psychedelic sound with heavy metal tones. The mood of their music is dark and mystical, and their sound is dominated by guitar and Hammonds, Moogs and Mellotrons. The band did lots of touring in the early 70's and they also managed to release an album with bigger amount of copies. Their line-ups varied, but keymembers on all albums are Tom Brehm playing guitars and Bill Pettijohn singing. Today their original releases are also remastered, and their stuff can be recommended for anybody interested of obscure psych rock bands.
Band leader Tom Brehm reformed DRAGONWYCK with a new and younger lineup in 2006 and embarked on a short European tour before fading once again into obscurity.
